18 years ago today, Reggie Miller scored eight points in 18 seconds.
Austin Kleon was the first speaker to grace the stage at our Austin, TX chapter, speaking on the future for our April theme month on the topic.
Austin has raised the eyebrows of the creative community with his books Steal Like an Artist and Newspaper Blackout. He has drawn rapt audiences at TEDx, Pixar, Google, and SXSW (to name a few). And he was declared by The Atlantic to be “one of the positvely most interesting people on the Internet.”
And, of course, his name is Austin.

With seven million people, Hong Kong is the 4th most densely populated places in the world. However, plain numbers never tell the full story. In his ‘Architecture of Density’ photo series, German photographer Michael Wolf explores the jaw-dropping urban landscapes of Hong Kong. He rids his photographs of any context, removing any sky or horizon line from the frame and flattening the space until it becomes a relentless abstraction of urban expansion, with no escape for the viewer’s eye. Infinite and haunting.

Invisible Bookend by Paul Cocksedge
London-based design studio Paul Cocksedge has created the wonderful ‘Invisible Bookend’ that works just fine, but which you cannot actually see.
This lightweight, free-standing product is designed for use on desks, shelves and the floor—it easily holds more than a meter-and-a-half of books of all shapes and sizes.
Not requiring any mechanical fitting, this magical-looking bookend will have your guests marveling at your gravity-defying, leaning book collection.
The makers of the Invisible Bookend have not revealed how this piece works, or even divulge how the product looks like—I guess one will just have to buy it to discover its mysteries.
