Jack Dorsey: The 3 Keys to Twitter's Success :: Videos :: The 99 Percent
"Jack Dorsey outlines three core takeaways from his experiences building and launching Twitter – and more recently – Square, a simple payment utility. 1) Draw: get your idea out of your head and share it, 2) Luck: assess when the time (and the market) is right to execute your idea, 3) Iterate: take in the feedback, be a rigorous editor, and refine your idea."

Archinect : News : REX Reuse in Istanbul: Vakko Fashion Center ShowCased
"Construction has just finished on the REX-designed Vakko Fashion Center & Power Media Center in Istanbul, Turkey. This project is particularly interesting in it's creative reuse of existing structure and plans from unrealized projects in both Turkey and the USA. REX utilized the remaining structure from the unfinished Istanbul hotel on-site, and reused the plans from REX's design for the California Institute of Technology’s Annenberg Center in Pasadena. As a result, construction on Vakko started only 4 days after REX received the commission!"

"The unbook is a concept originally developed by Jay Cross. The concept evolved based on discussions between Jay and Dave Gray in the summer of 2008. Jay published the first unbook, Learnscape Architecture, on August 12, 2008. The book is now titled Learnscaping and at the time of this writing (February 2009) was in version 1.32. The second unbook, Marks and Meaning, was published by Dave the following day.

This site intends to chronicle the development of the unbook movement, and provide a comprehensive catalogue of all unbook titles, the uncatalogue. To get an unbook listed in the catalogue, please use our contact form and tell us the title of the book (with link to the “buy” page), its author (with link if possible) and a short description of the book. Lengthy descriptions will be edited. Unbooks will be listed alphabetically by title."

"A traditional book is released in editions. When a work is revised or updated, a new edition is released. These revised or updated editions usually offer small, incremental changes, such as a new preface or introduction, a new chapter, or small changes to the content.

An unbook is more like software:

1. An unbook is never finished, but rather continually updated, based on feedback from users and their evolving needs.

2. An unbook is released in versions. As in open source software, version 1.0 of an unbook is a significant milestone, indicating that it is stable and reliable enough for use by the general public. The significance of a new release is indicated by the size of the gap: For example, the difference between 1.1 and 1.1.3 is minor, while the difference between 1.1 and 2.0 is major.

3. An unbook is supported by a community of users who share their experiences and best practices with each other, and help each other troubleshoot problems encountered in their practice areas. An unbook’s community is a very real part of the unbook’s development team.

An unbook is mindware: software for the mind."
