  11. Today in SF it’s 36ª. Just last week we were in the high 60’s. We’ve bundled ourselves up in cashmere all week at the office. We can’t help but wonder what’s caused this drastic change in temperature.

It’s going to be a long cold winter. Bundle up.

  12. "Josef Albers, one of the best-known painters and educators to emerge from the German Bauhaus, wrote The Interaction of Color in 1963, and it’s remained an art and design bible ever since. Last week, to commemorate the book’s 50th anniversary, Yale University Press released the Interaction of Color app for the iPad, a modernized, interactive presentation of Albers’s teachings. With fingers instead of paintbrushes and a touch screen instead of paper, users can move and manipulate over 125 color plates in 60 interactive studies. Concepts like color relativity and vibrating boundaries come to life in this $9.99 app, alongside the book’s full text and two hours of video footage.”
