  10. Why is sketching such an important aspect of design? | Forty
    In college, my design professors tried to get me to understand the value of sketching, but I didn't want to hear it. Why would I want to sketch in a silly little book when I have this computer, with all the design software I could ever want, and more fonts than I could possibly know what do with?<br />
    <br />
    For years I fought the idea. Whenever a new design project came along I'd get out my sketchbook and hunt for just the right pen, and go through the motions of sketching. The result was usually one idea partially drawn out and then hours and hours on the computer refining that one idea.
  11. Heroes and villains of imaginary worlds: A quick primer
    You can certainly have science fiction without heroes or villains — a lot of the greatest SF novels don't make things quite so clear-cut. Unlike, say, detective fiction, in which you must have a detective and there's almost always a murderer, the basic concept of science fiction doesn't require heroism or villainy. But as you can see from the definitions of SF we posted this morning, a lot of people view SF as being in a "gothic" mode, or as being about the fate of humanity — and those things usually imply that there's a gothic hero, or someone who's trying to save humanity. But it'll never be as clear-cut as most detective fiction, or chick lit, or travel memoirs, to name a few.

    Uma única palavra pode mudar o curso da História. Um relato, um panfleto, um livro podem fazer emergir o terror e a catástrofe. A loucura narrativa tem força de um tsumani e por isso o filósofo, romancista, dramaturgo e poeta francês Jean-Pierre Faye pede às pessoas que agucem o ouvido para as palavras. Na sinfonia do mundo tudo está dito, mas as pessoas não escutam ou não entendem o que ouvem.

    We see it every day on signs, billboards, packaging, in books and magazines; in fact, you are looking at it now — the Latin or Roman alphabet, the world’s most prolific, most widespread abc.
