Author David McCullough and the Back Bay

Since I’ve been on a John Adams kick lately, I found this great short video that The Boston Globe featured about one of my Back Bay neighbors, David McCullough, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning book, John Adams.  I hope I run into you in the Commonwealth Ave Mall one of these days. Click on the photo to go to the video link.

Enjoy!

Andrew Stanton: Storytelling – A TED Talk

On the TED website, I typed in the topic: writing.  This sent me to a page: How to tell a story (6 talks).

This TED talk was filmed at TED 2012. You may want to go back and watch the other ones.

Filmmaker Andrew Stanton (“Toy Story,” “WALL-E”) shares what he knows about storytelling — starting at the end and working back to the beginning. (via ted.com)

The comfort of thingy-ness – A TED talk

This TED talk with Chip Kidd is all about book design or rather, book jacket design.

“Much is to be gained by eBooks: ease, convenience, portability. But something is definitely lost: tradition, a sensual experience, the comfort of thingy-ness — a little bit of humanity.”
