Stumbled on the work of Daniel Barreto and his stop-motion film Ignite, “an experimental short film animation that was made with hundreds of long exposure photographs, just as a timelapse or stopmotion.” Watch it here, it’s really neat.

…oh, hang on. Perfect. Thanks It Ran. Read all (less?) about it here It Ran

…with apologies to Maurice Sendak. Stumbled across this gallery of arresting images by artist and photographer Peter Lippmann. Utterly wonderful.

It’s great fun to speculate on the future of this or that, and let’s face it, no-one ever got famous (or in the case of those usually engaged in the daily grind of business, tried to generate sales) saying thing’s would broadly stay the same. So here’s a prediction about what the future holds for […]

When we talk about performance in business these days, you can be fairly sure that involves a workshop or, if you’re lucky, a team-building event involving something competitive and outdoors. In the US in the golden days of the Corporation, it was all a bit more serious than that. Or less serious, perhaps? Stumbled on […]
