Dick’s Sporting Goods - Every pitch 

Today’s submission comes from colorist extraordinaire Rob Bessette at Finish Post Production in Boston.  Very cool stuff. The target for Dicks isn’t so much baseball fans as it is people who actually play baseball. And this spot shows in no uncertain terms that Dick’s as a brand truly understands the nuances of the game for real players.  It’s not some big home run by a superstar, it’s how the majority of baseball is played.  Beautifully shot, great sound design.  Nice work.

From the article:

Made With Code is a new Google initiative to motivate future female programmers. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women, and Google is spending $50 million over the next three years to change those numbers.

More than 150 high school girls turned out for the event, including local chapters of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Black Girls Code and Girls Who Code. Kaling, a writer and actress, emceed the premiere, which brought in Google X Vice President Megan Smith, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton, iLuminate creator Miral Kotb, Pixar Director of Photography Danielle Feinberg and UNICEF Innovation cofounder Erica Kochi.

Unquiet Film Series: Times New Roman

Designers, letterpress artists, and other typographic experts discuss the Times New Roman typeface in this fascinating video by the Times. The typeface was created for the paper in 1931 and, due to its subsequent use in book publishing and Microsoft products, is widely recognized. The Times still uses a variant of the typeface more than 80 years later.

MESMERIZED Y’ALL

In fact, it is black southern popular culture, and hip-hop in particular, that was doing the ethnographic work about the South when sociologists were not. Three Six Mafia, Gangsta Boo, 8-Ball and MJG, Arrested Development, Ludacris, T.I., Outkast, Nappy Roots—the list goes on and on—were giving us a visual and lyrical ethnographic analysis of the post-soul South through their music and music videos while sociologists were still talking about Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles and historians were talking about everything before King’s assassination.

Google Self-Driving Car Project 

Google:

We’re now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they’ll take you where you want to go! 

…they’ll be designed to operate safely and autonomously without requiring human intervention. They won’t have a steering wheel, accelerator pedal, or brake pedal… because they don’t need them. Our software and sensors do all the work. 

The future just got a little bit closer.
