Friday Inspiration 321

Me watching this 3-minute video: Oh this is cute. Very imaginative. Haha. Oh. Was not expecting it to go there. Very imaginative. Haha. (video)


These animations of Japanese wood joinery are so satisfying (thanks, Skander)

I learned a lot about the Zamboni, aka the Zamboni Ice Resurfacing Machine, this week. Perhaps you would like to as well. (Also, I think it’s worth asking: Frank Zamboni has been inducted into the United States Figure Skating Association Hall of Fame, the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame, and the National Inventors Hall of Fame, but not the Hockey Hall of Fame?)

I loved David Epstein’s book Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World, and somehow his newsletter popped up in my feed last week. This piece about Exploring vs. Exploiting at work (or in creative work) really hit home, especially the Van Gogh letter at the end.

I don’t know if you’ll be able to see this if you don’t have an Instagram account, but Brett Goldstein (aka Roy Kent) is going to be on Sesame Street and there are photos (thanks, Russell)

Jonny Greenwood PRETENDED he knew how to play the keyboard when he first joined Radiohead
