Hello Folks

Some great additions this week. Anyone up for seeing Lo & Behold this week in NYC?

1. Transform your illustration into smart SVG
“SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics and SVG files are text files with XML inside. Visual information in an SVG file is defined by human-readable code, which is then calculated and rendered by your browser or graphics software. SVG files are infinitely flexible. They can be altered manually in a text editor. They can be altered by code, such as JavaScript and CSS. They can be compressed to small sizes.”

2. ​Best App Prototyping Tool – Proto.io vs. InVision vs. Marvel
“With the increasing number of services becoming available, deciding on the best prototyping tool to adopt in your team’s workflow is not an easy task. Some prototyping tools have a ‘limited’ number of features and capabilities, while others promote a very extensive list. These features are not limited to the interactions the prototype can create, but also include asset management, prototype delivery, and feedback.”

3. Inside JetBlue’s Quest to Make Plane Food Great Again
“WHEN JETBLUE HIRED Brad Farmerie to design the airline’s first business class menu in 2014, the chef didn’t bother to study airplane food. “I didn’t want to be daunted by what the onboard cooking possibilities looked like,” he says, “I was going to make sure our headline dishes got onboard.””

4. Nero’s Rotating Dining Room
“”The main dining table, which was round, rotated night and day, imitating the motions of the globe.” The surprising construction mentioned by Suetonius in his biography of Nero has been found. On Palatine Hill (Rome), a Franco-Italian team of archaeologists discovered remains of a mechanism that could have allowed the rotation of the floor of the main dining room of the Domus Aurea—Nero’s vast imperial palace.”

5. Lo And Behold
“Also going to recommend low and behold by Werner Herzog as a good documentary on the internets”
“In LO AND BEHOLD: REVERIES OF THE CONNECTED WORLD, the Oscar-nominated Herzog chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole and the Australian outback. Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works – from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships.”
