Synesthesia for the masses.RDF ducks.Aaron Swartz reports from an encounter with Edward Tufte: "You need three things to publish a book, he explains: lots of money, a big garage, and a book designer. So he mortgaged his house at 18.9% interest (the loan officer said it was the second-most unusual loan he had granted after a circus who wanted to buy an elephant) and just threw money at it, going all out until he ran out of money. He printed 5000 copies and bought a small ad in Scientific America. When he got back from vacation he found his mailbox overflowing with orders. Its since sold over a million copies."[create Mark Jen]: "i felt like i was joining a small start-up family; i thought i was going to start new initiatives and improve existing ones; i thought i could jump in the deep end and immerse myself in the revolutionary development environment; i thought i could make connections to real people in the outside world and get first hand feedback; i thought google would love it. i thought wrong."
