Pied Piper logo
Hooli logo (now with douche swoosh!)
Cardiff Electric (so sick)
Cupcake.ly (episode 7, “Proof of Concept”)
and more, in infinitely scalable Photoshop vector format. I redrew each logo by hand as clean, scalable vector art, so you can resize them as big as Erlich’s ego. Have fun!

Bitcoin Checkout Fail on Fancy.com
A story in four screenshots: click picture and hit the arrow keys
Tried to pay with Bitcoin on Fancy.com and the payment succeeded but their shopping cart won’t acknowledge receipt of the money. Click picture #3 to see the confirmed transaction on the Blockchain. Looks like the Coinbase.com integration that Fancy is using has some bugs :-/
This example illustrates both the challenge of irreversible transactions for consumers and the benefit to consumers of a global public ledger that shows proof of payment. :)
Update: during an exchange with the (very nice) Fancy.com support team, we found out that the implementation of Coinbase that Fancy is using requires 3rd-party cookies to be enabled. Enabling that fixed the problem! Bitcoin Checkout Fail on Fancy.com

As the employees sat, hushed, Dick [Costolo] paced in front of them with the microphone in his hand and told a story about their recent move.

He said that when he had directed the movers to transport the artwork from the old office, he had instructed them to leave one piece of art behind. It had hung in the Folsom Street office since late December 2009. The piece of art was in a black frame with a white border. In a bit of irony, it had been hung upside down. And in bold white letters on a dark background, it made a statement in thirty-six characters: “Let’s make better mistakes tomorrow.”

The new office, Dick explained, meant that it was time for Twitter to grow up as a company. To the end of rolling site outages and a long list of other problems that had plagued Twitter’s infancy.

"We’re leaving the motto of making better mistakes tomorrow in the old building," Dick said. "That’s not the type of company we are anymore."

This is by far one of my favorite bits from the much anticipated Nick Bilton Twitter book. Dick Costolo, I salute you.

re: party records, but doing it with a consciousness

"There was just a thing that was going on in the culture, about awareness, about identity, about comin’ out of the hood, and being able to present ideas that were lofty."
