• Smashing Magazine has written one of my favorite design-related posts ever called Lessons From Swiss Style Graphic Design.

• Steve Pavlina teaches us how to network with busy people and if that wasn’t enough information to absorb, here’s part two!

• 50 fresh portfolio websites for your inspiration.

• Aerial Typography: British researcher Rachel Young has compiled a New York alphabet using Google Maps.

• Qwitter will notify you when someone stops following you on Twitter and better yet, it tells you after which tweet you were unfriended!

• Get a glimpse inside the uncomfortable (and in my opinion, downright creepy) world of child beauty pageants through the lens of photographer Susan Anderson (via kottke).

• 100 years of design manifestos.

• Young creatives keep showing up in Portland, but they should have done their research first because times are tough (via Pampelmoose).

• A quick reminder on why cheap logos aren’t work the cost.

• Could you live without money? Daniel Suelo is a modern day cave man living in Utah who has survived on zero dollars a day for nearly 10 years. He claims that “When I lived with money, I was always lacking. Money represents lack. Money represents things in the past (debt) and things in the future (credit), but money never represents what is present.”
