Mad Men Yourself Output

AMC has a cool little app up that allows you to create yourself as a Mad Men character, then export the resulting image. I followed the show sparringly last year but have watched 2/3 episodes this year. Its loved by many who I follow.

Site Updates: Pushing Posts Via Twitter, iPhone Friendly Format

I installed a couple of plugins for my WordPress installation this weekend that enable automatic pushing of posts via my twitter account (http://twitter.com/robrubinoff), and for the publishing of an alternate iPhone, Palm, Android friendly format. If you’ve got an iPhone or similar late-model touch-screen enabled phone/device, please let me know how this site is behaving. I tested using a Win Safari installation but I know that user-agent switching/spoofing sometimes doesn’t point out all glitches.

The University of Miami Unveils New Visual Identity, Website

28 August 2009

 

um-logo-newI’m proud to be a Miami Hurricane. The University recently took a big step in solidifying its place as one of the U.S.’s preeminent institutions of higher learning.  In redesigning the logo and providing continuity across all communication platforms, Miami has taken steps unify its message and claim The U as its own.

Prior to this push, there were a myriad incarnations of logo and script across schools, departments, and campuses. Miami has done a wonderful job in launching this endeavor via the media that most individuals will come in contact with – the website.

Speaking of websites, here is a screen cap of the current University of Miami home page:

IKEA Switches To Verdana

Arts, The Internets / , , , ,

27 August 2009

 

Swedish furniture manufacturer and retailer, IKEA, recently made a typographical switch from Futura and Century Gothic, to a web-friendly font, Verdana. Their minimalist and intelligent designs coupled with their competitive pricing have made the firm a hit with modern design conscious consumers. Verdana, a web-safe font produced by Microsoft, often gains the scorn of design purists I think mainly because of its ubiquity.

In a move that I feel may be adopted by other forward thinking brands, IKEA has chosen Verdana as its sole font on the grounds of it being of core-relevancy on the web. Read: The web is getting so very important to our business that it makes sense to redo years of brand standards and use a font that can be deployed across multiple platforms and across multiple languages.

 

How To Disappear: An Experiment By Wired Magazine

Culture, The Internets

27 August 2009

 

The thought of disappearing is something I’ve toyed with on occasion. Nothing specific mind you, but sort of a fantasy I sometimes play out as more of a challenge than a deep seated desire. I would put pulling a disappearing act on life in the same bucket with masterminding a jewelry heist or driving from Cairo to Cape Town in a Defender 110.

Wired magazine published an article last month about a real disappearing act – a man from Arkansas who managed to fake his own death, hide out in Mexico, craft a fake identification, reunite with his family, start life anew in South Dakota and become gainfully employed in his previous profession. He got busted however and did the interview portions from within a jail. That part’s not so cool.

The article referenced above has become the impetus to a contest of sorts where the author, Evan Ratliff, is attempting to disappear. Wired is posting a variety of information (checks, receipts, IP addresses) to a blog and if someone manages to find Evan within the next 18 or so days, they can claim a cool $5000.

Dear New HP Mini,

Me /

hp-mini

I promise to take better care of you than I did your cousin. I left your cousin in an unlocked car overnight and he was abducted. I never received a ransom note, nor do I expect to hear from him again.

For the price I paid for your cousin, I was able to purchase you refurbished from Tiger Direct, give you more memory (2gb ddr2 ram) and purchase a new case for you to live in when we travel together. Don’t take this the wrong way, but I was also able to get a new 8gb sd card for a camera as well as an additional 4gb of ram for your big brother the desktop. I’m excited to take you to the Dr. and get you immunized against viruses, remove all those pesky HP installed vestigial organs, and add to your productivity abilities with a fresh install of open office.

Your friend and caretaker,

Rob.
