I recognize that image attribution is not something most content consumers care about, but it is important. It allows creators (and rebloggers) to help those who are truly original get proper credit for their efforts. That’s why this bookmarklet is awesome.
Src Img is a bookmarklet that interfaces with Google™ Image Search to help you find the creators of images you see on blogs that are too lame cool for attribution.
As an aside, I love this relatively new approach to bug reports. “Found a bug? Fix it.” With Github, it’s often easier to fix a bug than it is to report. Obvioiusly, this won’t work for a lot of applications, but it’s perfect for a project like this. [via @fchimero]
I recently read Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential, where he poo-poos molecular gastronomy, but I don’t know how you couldn’t be impressed by this. Granted, he has come around on the concept, but the work Grant Achatz has produced is beautiful and, from what i understand, delicious. While I prefer simplicity in my food, I could watch videos like this all day.
I also recommend you check out the videos from Aviary Cocktails, where Achatz and his cohorts explain how some of their amazing drinks are made. [via waxy]
This is easily the most innovative review format I’ve seen. Maybe it’s not a form that needs innovation, but Kill Screen managed to take advantage of a medium in a way I hadn’t considered before. According to the review, the game is about iteration and “may be a commentary on the grind of gaming, the relentless churn of killing and harvesting to gain new equipment so that we can kill and harvest more effectively.”
I won’t spoilt it by telling you how this differs from a normal review, but it’s highly recommended if you like video games and critical writing.
I enjoy sporadically linking to interesting content here, but sometimes it’s better to bring you right to the source. Here are a couple sites I’ve been reading for the last few weeks that produce great content consistently.
If you like interesting art and design projects, Colossal is killing it. I know things tend to get posted everywhere the second they become popular, but 3/4 of the things I see on Colossal are new to me. The site is run by Christopher Jobson out of Chicago and I’m amazed this isn’t the only thing he does.
As a nerd, I enjoy reading about tech, but I don’t need 5,000 words on the new Amazon tablet or 50 posts a day covering an unnecessarily broad scope of gizmos. Instead, I rely on Dan Frommer’s new site, SplatF. He posts about five times a day and he always has an opinion. The site is also cleanly designed (very [Sippey](http://sippey.com]-esque and made me rethink the command key on Apple computers.
Splat refers to the key on a Mac keyboard that’s officially called the Command key.
Some old-school Mac nerds — my father included — call it the “splat” key, because the symbol sort of looks like something that went “splat.” So that’s what I’ve been calling it since the early 90s.
