More e-books and TEDx Warsaw

From Lori Kent, another interesting article on @craigmod about formatting and design for ebooks, following the thread of Stephen Coles.

And Speaking of the fabulous Dr. Lori Kent, she was a speaker at the TEDx in Warsaw last month, giving her take on the artist's mind (click here and scroll down to the video of Lori).

We've read craigmod before, no? Crafty of him to use a page with an orphink, eh? (or widow, depending on whose nomenclature you use). My very un-serious question is, "Why are so many people reading Winnie the Pooh on an e-book?

Very cool that Dr. Lori Kent is on a Fulbright, teaching and researching in Krakow. More of a problem-solver myself, I was struck by Kent's statement that "artists problem-find,"—"different from what graphic designers do, which is problem solve." I was struck harder by two other eloquent phrases: 1. "vision is more than seeing" and 2. "art is a process of meaning-making." Online videos provide a process of meaning-finding.
