  • Agile as a ‘Cargo Cult’ « Made by Many
    "In our rapidly converging media world, we hear the word “agile” bandied around a lot these days – sometimes, it has to be said, by people who don’t actually have a scooby about what it really means to work in an agile way. [...] It’s like the “open sesame” of integrated thinking, design and development – literally opening a treasure cave. It’s like a silver bullet. It’s as easy as swallowing the red pill." And of course, says Tim Malbon, it's not like that at all. (agile opinion )

  • Letters of Note: Your pal, John K.
    "In 1998, aged just 14, aspiring young cartoonist Amir Avni decided to get in touch with the creator of Ren & Stimpy, John Kricfalusi. Being a hardcore fan of Kricfalusi's work, Amir sent him an introductory letter along with a few cartoons he'd drawn, some of which contained relatively unknown characters of John's. To call Kricfalusi's response 'generous' would be an understatement [...] ast forward 12 years and Amir is currently in his 4th year of the Animation program at Sheridan College, even having worked as part of John's Digital Inking crew on the George Liquor Show."
