Jeremy Zawodny : The Graphing Calculator Story - The Graphing Calculator Story: you must read this

Eric Meyer : The Graphing Calculator Story - I remember when I first saw Graphing Ccalculator as part of an official Apple demo of the PowerPC at CWRU, and it did indeed blow me away. That was the same demo that included a joke about the 'Pentium Weber Grill' attachment, I believe.

7/12/2004 @ 22:55 UTC

jkottke : A new way of traffic engineering: use minimal signage and make all traffic (foot, car, bike, etc.) use the same roadway - The result is that all traffic slows down and relies on communication between participants to negotiate the traffic space.

cobra libre : roads gone wild - making roads safer by making them seem dangerous [via#

Matthew M. Boedicker : making driving seem more dangerous could make it safer

Eric Meyer : Roads Gone Wild - I'd never have thought of it, and yet it makes complete sense. Then again, on our narrow-ish unlined side street, traffic is too fast for comfort, so there's clearly more to this than just embracing minimalism. [via Matt] [via]

The disappearing dollar

7/12/2004 @ 16:57 UTC
