Lime Top, 12x12.
Last month my first project at Facebook was publicly announced at F8. I’m happy to say that the new Facebook Login is the result of much simplification, clearer messaging and a straightforward effort to give more control to back people using our tools.

Money only buys you two things, lavish self-deception and comfortable suffering.

The nutritional completeness of coconuts, a mental illness and where The Mill got the idea for $4 toast.
An indicator has value when it’s indicating something. But if it’s not indicating something it shouldn’t be there, it’s one of those funny things, you spend so much more time to make it less conspicuous… And if you think about it, so many of the products we’re surrounded by, they want you to be very aware of just how clever the solution was. When the indicator comes on, I wouldn’t expect anyone to point to that as a feature, but at some level I think you’re aware of a calm and considered solution that speaks about how you’re going to use it, and not the terrible struggles that we as designers and engineers had in trying to solve some of the problems. — Jonathan Ives

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. It is a net for catching days. A schedule is a mock-up of reason and order—willed, faked, and so brought into being; it is a peace and a haven set into the wreck of time; it is a lifeboat on which you find yourself, decades later, still living. Each day is the same, so you remember the series afterward as a blurred and powerful pattern. — Annie Dillard
