» Priceonomics: How the Father of Claymation Lost His Company

“Over thirty years, Vinton had built his firm, Vinton Studios, into a $28-million-a-year enterprise.

And now he was in the board room, tracing over the language that seized his kingdom. Hours earlier, he’d handed over his company and all of its trademarks to Nike co-founder Phil Knight.”
A bit of a heartbreaking story, but a good read. Also some great videos included.

» Scary Maze Game 5

This is a particularly challenging game. I did not play it with a traditional mouse (I used a trackpad) and it is tougher than it looks. Well done!
