This is awesome. Audible wanted to create a proprietary “podcast” network (in quotes because of the contradiction), now instead will try an open one. The power of an open juggernaut.

podcasts & rss just want to be free…

Amazon is turning Audible into a true podcast app, but it’s got a long way to go – The Verge

I picked this out of the pavement leaf-litter, thinking it was an eerily-matching piece of packaging but it's a real leaf - a real...designer leaf. How on earth did it get like this?

There is an alternative to corporate bubbles online — it’s called the IndieWeb. Build your own personal websites, control your online presence, and learn on your own terms.

My current website is a constant work in progress but I have a lot of joy when I scroll through my archives. I am always excited to improve it and try new things, I can break it and fix it at my own pace and I don’t have a deadline on it. It is my safe space.

Liked Harper, 1966 HTML Poster | MICHAEL BRANSON SMITH by an author
In the meantime, I’m reaching back to my recent past with the animated posters, but with a new approach. I’m going to try and build a classic movie poster a week using HTML/CSS. The first is Harper, a poster for the 1966 Paul Newman film. I came across it through my Flickr feed of all things.

I always love Michael Branson Smith‘s work/play which I came across via ds106 his animated movie posters are special.
