Ping Pong FM

Ping Pong FM is a musical take on table tennis. Choose a song and keep it playing at the correct tempo by keeping the ball in play. Rally too slowly, or drop the ball, and the music will wind down to a stop. Made me laugh!

The Artist

“It seems that two qualities are necessary if a great artist is to remain creative to the end of a long life; he must on the one hand retain an abnormally keen awareness of life, he must never grow complacent, never be content with life, must always demand the impossible and when he cannot have it, must despair. The burden of the mystery must be with him day and night.”


“The image that concerns most people is the reflection they see in other people’s minds.”
– Edward de Bono

Next time I fly into JFK I hope to spot this large-scale typography at the restored Rockaway Beach boardwalk in Queens, New York. The installation spells out the name of the beach in letters that are each 100 to 150 feet wide and almost 50 feet tall, and together span nearly a mile. Design by the mighty Paula Scher/Pentagram.

Go MailChimp!

“It’s possible to create a huge tech company without taking venture capital, and without spending far beyond your means. It’s possible, in other words, to start a tech company that runs more like a normal business than a debt-fueled rocket ship careening out of control. Believe it or not, start-ups don’t even have to be headquartered in San Francisco or Silicon Valley.”
