Me: And they bang into each other, but still manage to find their little holes?
Todd: I am so turned on right now.

Next time I am in Portland I am definitely staying at the Ace Hotel, which apparently has records and record players in at least a few rooms (photo above) and may also be the hippest and most modern place to stay in America. According to their website (which is one of the best and more useable designs I’ve ever come across), they have a business lounge with 2 Macbooks for your use, free...
How do I stop “following” someone on Tumblr? — doree On the off chance this isn’t a rhetorical question…click on the upper right number on your dashboard, the people you’re following, and if you let your mouse hover over the icon of that person, you’ll see a little red x appear in the upper right corner of it. Just click on that, and poof! Gone.

quick Tumblr interview (thedeal.com) →
“Forty percent of our traffic comes from referrals. If we focus on the people who really love Tumblr—the artists, musicians and other creative people who are doing the most brilliant things with it—and we help them to take what they’re doing to the next level, then they will inspire and magnetize other people to Tumblr.” Why don’t more websites have that policy?...

Kudos to the man with the brain.
