Thursday Top 5+1



The Making of Little Big Planet
Alex Evans, Co-Founder of developer Media Molecule, visited the Wired Store to talk about the creative process that led to the making of Little Big Planet, and the way the game has unleashed the creativity of players.



Christoph Niemann on coffee
Pretty funny; I had a similar late start at drinking coffee, although I’ve always been a caffeine fiend. You should spend some time perusing his excellent illustration portfolio, especially Gallery 6.



Chip Kidd
Chip Kidd is possibly the best modern designer of book covers. He’s prolific and I’m sure you’ll recognize at least a couple of the covers in this short profile video.



Smudge
A reality check. They’ve got a great website. This should be an interesting campaign to watch.



Please Don’t Divorce Us
Proposition 8 was a travesty that makes me ashamed to be a Californian. If you don’t know any families who are affected by this, it may be difficult to imagine what it feels like to have your human rights infringed on this way. The Courage Campaign’s community photo pool on Flickr attempts to put a human face on the controversy with moving portraits of those affected by Prop 8. Please consider a donation to the Courage Campaign.



Watch out Microsoft, here comes the iTable
It’s not a Mac and it doesn’t run OS X (it runs WindowsXP, meh) but it’s a lot less expensive than Microsoft’s Surface.

Ok. We know lots of families affected by this. Our neighbors - Fran and Audry. Friends - Nadine and Sara, parents of Rafi and Gidi. My co-workers - Jen and Sandy. Several of our other friends are effected by this. They may not be married now, but what about in a few years?
