New York Times: Behind Kanye’s Mask

New York Times: Behind Kanye's Mask

Say what you will about his antics, but Kanye West is one of the most captivating people in American society today–and his new New York Times interview has already lit the internet world afire. There are countless page view hungry websites putting up “Kanye’s [insert number here] Most Stupid/Hilarious/Awesome Quotes” articles stemming from the article and it even sparked a discussion when I crossed paths with Harrison Boyce late yesterday. The article ranges from topics such as the process of designing and making music and really digs deep into the people/influences that made the polarizing figure who he is today–get to the NYT website and check it out.

Tumblr: The Lively Morgue

The New York Times has started up a Tumblr page to easily share some of the millions of photos they have at their disposal. Each photo comes with a little background info, as well as an image of the photo’s reverse side for more historical-ness (when you click on the pic).

According to the about page:

If we posted 10 new archival pictures every weekday on Tumblr, just from our print collection, we wouldn’t have the whole thing online until the year 3935.

Lots of interesting history to come I’m sure.

Getting Rich from iPhone Apps

I just read this article at lunch (on my iPhone using the NY Times App) about people making lots of money by developing iPhone apps. The article showcases a few different people’s stories, but the main developer, Ethan Nicholas, on his peek day, made $35,000 in 24 hours off the royalties from his app iShoot. Pretty nuts!
