Redesigning the Boarding Pass - Journal - Boarding Pass / Fail
Hello there. Thanks for flying Delta. I am sure you are no doubt trying to figure out what the *$#% to do with the piece of paper you have in your hand right now. You're confused, lost, and just want to get on your flight. It's cool, we don't really care, and we sure as hell don't want to make this process easy and enjoyable for you. Instead we hired a small, blind parakeet to lay out your boarding pass--you know, just to keep you guessing. Have fun.


At NEA, a daring idea to help artists rises again (The Denver Post)
"Current NEA chairman Rocco Landesman, a no-nonsense former Broadway producer, has openly floated the notion of reinstating those individual artist fellowships. The issue, he says with certainty, is not dead.

"'In many ways, the question of supporting individual artists is the question for any chairman of the NEA,' Landesman said via e-mail."

Everyone Else Outsources, So Why Can't The Arts? : NPR

"In Columbus, Ohio, a number of arts groups are doing what American businesses started [...] outsourcing. [T]hey're handing over the 'back office' to the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts, or CAPA. CAPA handles their finances, marketing, ticketing and fundraising - basically all the stuff that artists don't really like to do anyway."

Microsoft Education Competencies: Humor

Apparently Microsoft takes humor so seriously, they consider it a "professional development competency" and offer online training complete with a bibliography: "Hello! We're glad that you stopped by to learn about just one of the professional development competencies that was developed with educators, for educators."

Couple stole more than other artists' ideas (Washington Post)

"[V]eteran dealer Magdalena Sawon gave me an early glimpse of a work called 'Stolen Pieces,' which she said has never been exhibited. Made by a young Italian couple, Eva and Franco Mattes, but kept secret since the mid-'90s, it consists of a display case full of tiny chips from significant works of art, snatched or snapped off by the duo over a two-year crime spree. The artists did the deeds between July 28, 1995, and July 29, 1997, in museums all around the world."
