I know summer isn’t really over for another few weeks.

But to me, September 1st has always marked its end.  It hasn’t been “back to school” time for me for 5 years, but the slightly crisp smell in the air elicits a Pavlovian response, where I am immediately filled with visions of freshly-sharpened pencils, plastic backpacks, and brand-new sneakers.

Of course, when it was me going back to school, that vision was much less glorified; it mostly consisted of alarm clocks, stinky school lunches, and homework.

  1. This is awesome. A 22-year-old woman punched a bear IN THE FACE to save her dog. I would totally do that to save my bulldog (or so I say in a blog post).
  2. Evi (she’s our newest team member, say hi!) shared this TED talk about augmented reality. She adds, “The sky is the limit and only our senses can define how much we want to interact with smart technologies.”
  3. Here are some best practices for small business email newsletters. They are spot on.
  4. Pantelis shared a cool and interactive look at the history of the web and internet browsers. Does it give you Netscape nostalgia?
  5. As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, marketing has started to pick up.  The New York Times wonders if it’s possible to honor it, without exploiting it.
  6. Twitter put out its first real commercial this week. Do you think it’s as bad as the critics say?
