Oh, those peeps from Pentagram never cease to do beautiful and impressive work. The latest is a new chess set for the World Chess Candidates Tournament in London.

It’s Time for a “Slow Conversation” Movement – Anthony K. Tjan – Harvard Business Review

Another article in a growing list of articles and thinking on how to pull the technology pendulum back to a more balanced life that includes face-to-face interaction, creating experiences instead of only vicariously living through others and, dare I say it, actual analog time.
