Some of the best ideas we have seen before but we don’t recognize them as worthy because of new fads in design.  These could include: individual quiet spaces, direct sources to sunlight, less 90 and 180 degree angles, and proper choice of color.

I was at a playground the other day that was really busy.  For one moment I took my eyes off him.  In that moment, my son snuck into a paid area of the playground that he shouldn’t have been able to get into.  My wife, my friends and I frantically looked for my son for two to three minutes.  They were the longest, most terrifying minutes of my life.  I have been wanting to get a device like this for quite some time, but never as much as I have now that I have been through the most frightening moment of my life.

The making of music mashes [Pop Danthology]

It was interesting to see this video by Daniel Kim about how he makes the music mashups.  As a computer teacher in elementary school I was once tasked with trying to make one myself for an assembly.  I was given about a week to do it with no formal training in music and none of the proper software.  Given these factors, I failed miserably and it sounded awful.

After seeing how Daniel Kim does it and what programs he uses makes me want to try again.

Daniel mentions and uses the following programs to create his masterpieces:

One might swap out Logic Pro X with Garageband and Final Cut Pro with iMovie, both of which come with most Macs, to still get results.

Check out his explanation of using the software, and the theory and time behind his work here:
