random links found through feedly


This is where I have to give a big shout out to Feedly, my RSS reader of choice, that every morning feeds me a fresh page of content based on my Google Reader subscriptions. Feedly presents the best content from those subscriptions in a beautiful magazine-style page that is a pleasure to read. This is not a paid advertisement, I just love Feedly that much.

So here are some things Feedly helped me find this morning:

Victory Journal, “the new refuge for true sportsmen,” found via iainclaridge.net, which posted the above cover from said journal.

MG Siegler, Marco Arment and Brent Simmons hate on Business Insider for the truly annoying and despicable habit of splitting articles into multi-page slideshows.

Roger Black begins to look at advertising in web content and how publishers could make money without compromising readability.

Michael Stipe and Mike Mills talk to The Daily Beast about the R.E.M. breakup and insist there was no drama.

Famous people, many of whom you’ve never heard of discuss their top 10 films from the Criterion Collection. Here’s my top 1.

Jason Fried of 37signals writes on product development and the tension between the obvious, the easy and the possible.

Hi, I’m davidconell. I’m married, have two kids and live in the world’s greatest planned community. To make money, I serve as the director of digital marketing for Ocean Conservancy. Most recently, I made money as an associate director of digital media for strategic communications at The Nature Conservancy, which is a long way of saying I set the web strategy for a fairly big part of the organization (but not all of it). Before that, I was a web editor for the American Society of Landscape Architects, where I wrote and edited their email newslettercreated their blog, recorded some podcasts with well-known landscape architects, managed their website, took late-night calls about server outages and dealt with pretty much anything having to do with the www dots. ASLA has a cool green roof, which you should really check out. I learned the ways of the force and fell in love with Apple products while working for Advisor Today magazine. In 2001, the magazine needed a website, so I teamed with a designer and a developer to make one. We ran it for a while and won some awards. I made a little money doing this as well. During some of the time I was with Advisor Today, I went to American University, earned a Masters of Fine Arts in Fiction and wrote a short story cycle/novella. No, it has not been published, but someday I’d like to self-publish it for my family and friends. I didn’t make any money doing this. In a former life I was a reporter for some very scary publications – some of which are now defunct. These jobs pretty well sucked, but I met my wife while doing them so it all worked out in the end. I claim Danville, Pennsylvania as my hometown, because it’s where my heart lies. I attended Dickinson College, which is an amazing place that I didn’t appreciate nearly enough while I was there. If I could be anywhere in the world right now, it would be Duck, North Carolina; Chamonix, France; or Caherdaniel, County Kerry. If you’re reading this sentence and just got choked up a little, you know who you are. Enjoy…
