Occasionally you see things that are so good they stop you cold, render you dumb, and bring tears to your eyes. These rare things are accessible, incredibly innovative and elegant in their execution. They are in their very essence beautiful. Here are two such things.
The first is an experience in the virtual world. Jonathan Harris is an artist with information. He creates truly amazing explorations of the online world. His work is as mesmerizing and addicting as anything I have seen on the net. - http://wefeelfine.org/
The second is a physical experience: True innovation is making something great with very little. Jonny Lee is perhaps the most brilliant human factor engineer of our time. - http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/
Both Jonathan Harris and Johnny Lee were featured at TED, the annual confab that now posts its session online. You should check it out and go back often. TED gives voice to the creative, innovative and brilliant. We all should listen. http://www.ted.org/
