A Look Into: Black and White in Design

A Look Into: Black and White in Design

Black and white are too of the most emotive visuals in nature. Polar opposites, the two seem to stand for opposing metaphors, as well.

(Image source: Fotolia) The real benefit of these two shades is to meld together in a contrasting design. Using such a stark dichotomy, you immediately establish...

Dal calore in eccesso l’energia per ricaricare i cellulari

Dal calore in eccesso l’energia per ricaricare i cellulari A pochi giorni dall’esito del recente referendum, dove uno dei quattro quesiti riguardava il settore dell’energia, quella nucleare, il dibattito sulle fonti energetiche è più vivo che mai, così come si moltiplicano le proposte, tra le quali non mancano quelle a dir poco curiose.

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

Published my first opinion piece on CNN.com today, in which I argue it’s a great thing that the Library of Congress is archiving billions of public tweets.

Thanks to @matty_g, @Jason_Pollock, @Swiftsfan, and @itwalkabout for the example tweets in the story. Who...
