Things I’ve found interesting – 21 September
This update is bought to you by Apple, Apple and more Apple. And did I mention there’s some Apple? Why banks are buying in to Apple Pay. It’s pretty amazing Apple has managed to get the banks to pay them to add a feature to their phones [...] Technovia

so amazingly primitive

What We Talk About When We Talk About What We Talk About When We Talk About Making | Quiet Babylon
On "independent creators", who is part of "our community", who isn't. Makes me want an at least partly explicit socialist / social democratic tech conference. Although it'd probably be unbearable. Phil Gyford

Immersive theatre: living up to its name, or just an overused gimmick? | Stage | theguardian.com

What We Talk About When We Talk About What We Talk About When We Talk About Making | Quiet Babylon
In 2011, I attended a conference for artists and designers interested in collaboration as a practice. I had a lovely time. We shared stories and projects, we tried out new methods on one another, we drank and ate. September 18, 2014 at 04:21PM via Pocket Kim

James Ferguson illustrations | The New York Review of Books
I love these watercolour(?) caricatures/portraits, the solidity of them. (I also love that the NYRB's search results can generate results like this for one of their illustrators.) Phil Gyford
Git: The Safety Net for Your Projects · An A List Apart Article
I liked this as a clear and pragmatic guide to some Git stuff. Kind of the next steps once someone's got to grips with add/commit/pull/push. Phil Gyford
