Exploring Dustin Yellin’s sculptural paintings that use multiple layers of glass, each covered in detailed imagery, to create a single intricate, three-dimensional collage. They look like full 3D objects from the front, and completely disappear from view as you move to the side. (at Dustin Yellin Studio)
The anatomy of Ellen’s Oscars tweet seen around the world.
Twitter posted these stats when Ellen’s famous Oscars celebrity selfie tweet was at 2.4 Million ReTweets, now it’s at 3.2 Million. Note that Twitter can track how many people actually saw a tweet, and what the duplication was. Estimates elsewhere would likely be based on potential reach, not actual reach.

"I know some of you spent a lot of time working on stuff that we put a bullet in the head of. I apologize. I feel your pain. But Apple suffered for several years from lousy engineering management. I have to say it. And there were people that were going off in 18 different directions doing arguably interesting things in each one of them. Good engineers — lousy management. And what happened was you look at the farm that’s been created with all these different animals going in different directions and it doesn’t add up. The total is less than the sum of the parts.
And so we had to decide, what are the fundamental directions we’re going in? And what makes sense and what doesn’t? And there were a bunch of things that didn’t. And microcosmically they might have made sense; macrocosmically they made no sense. And you know, the hardest thing is… you think about focusing, right? You think, “Well, focusing is saying yes”. No, focusing is about saying no. Focusing is about saying no. And you’ve got to say no, no, no. When you say no, you piss off people.”
— When Steve Jobs returned to Apple 17 Years ago he explained so clearly how come they needed to stop making so many things, even things people really liked. So many companies fail to communicate this way.

it shows the continued determination of Facebook to be the ‘next’ Facebook. It’s striking to compare the aggressive reaction to disruption shown by Google, Facebook and other leading web companies today with how some of their predecessors a decade ago stumbled and lost their way
