A small red bundle of love (What I learned this week)

  •  Kevin Clash is one of the most talented and hardest working men in entertainment and no one knows who he is. He is the puppeteer behind Elmo. Being Elmo is a fantastic documentary about his life and how he got to become one of the most iconic characters ever created. 
  • Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite writers. Despite reading his blog and following him on twitter I had somehow missed that he was creating an adaptation of his novel American Gods as a series for HBO. He is currently writing the pilot. Very much looking forward to this when it airs. 
  • Through the fantastic Radiolab I learn of a new podcast called 99% Invisible. No, it is not about economics, it is about design and how good design is 99% invisible to the user. The podcast tone and style make it a sibling of Radiolab.
