Faceborg scrapes your un-preferences too!

No longer a fan of something? Facebook just made it easier to “unlike” your favorite Facebook Pages through the embedded fan box widgets. While many users have actually requested that Facebook a full functioning “Dislike” feature to express negative sentiment, this feature is simply an easier way to not be a fan of existing Facebook Pages that you like.

Why Facebook would add the unlike button is unknown but many Facebook Page owners have been complaining to us about the feature this morning. Previously, it was pretty difficult to “unfan” (now called “unlike”) Facebook Pages from external websites and even within the Facebook Page itself.

Things people wish they hadn't said on the radio...

Excerpt from NPR's All Thing Considered report:

. . .

RABINOWITZ: But some Kent State University students, like Max Dunzik(ph), question whether they're being saturated with observances of an event that's no longer relevant.

Mr. MAX DUNZIK (Student, Kent State University): It starts to lose its luster after a while. Maybe like every 10, it's sweet, but the 41st, the 42nd, the 43rd, the 44th, like after a while, it's like okay, we get it.

. . . 

Oh yeah, that is "sweet" and we are sooooo glad you "get it".

kent state

What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

"It's still hard to believe I had to write this song. It's ironic that I capitalized on the death of these American students. Probably the most important lesson ever learned at an American place of learning. 

David Crosby cried after this take."

Silence here for a couple of weeks. A busy period of making for Kids.Modern and forPoundshop (opening tomorrow), a pop-up-experimental-shop curated by Householdand Sara Melin. The shop space on Hoxton Street looks great, designed by architectFinn Williams and product designer Fredrik Paulsen. My contribution is an edition of 50 Hand Werk boxes, each containing a set of materials and forms, for abstract play.

On the Internet no one can see you're a manatee.

On the Internet everyone can see your humanity.

kiss Spring comes

by E. E. Cummings

there are so many tictoc 
clocks everywhere telling people 
what toctic time it is for 
tictic instance five toc minutes toc 
past six tic 

Spring is not regulated and does 
not get out of order nor do 
its hands a little jerking move 
over numbers slowly 

we do not 
wind it up it has no weights 
springs wheels inside of 
its slender self no indeed dear 
nothing of the kind. 

(So,when kiss Spring comes 
we'll kiss each kiss other on kiss the kiss 
lips because tic clocks toc don't make 
a toctic difference 
to kisskiss you and to 
kiss me)
