Dieline visits Method. Pretty interesting! (Updates February 29, 2004 Consumed.)

Joel Johnson visits Foxconn. Pretty interesting! (Updates June 25, 2010 Consumed.)

Kurt Andersen’s Studio 360 has an episode about Buffalo Bill. (Updates November 11, 2007 Consumed; also if you’re interested in Buffalo Bill and wild west shows’ surprising global influence, see this Murketing post with bonus info that I published at that time.)

The Atlantic’s website discovers “heightened consciousness about the role and function of the conventional book,” and points out the books-into-art work of Brian Dettmer. (Updates August 6, 2010 Consumed; see also extensive exploration of this general subject here and here.) [Via: Unconsumption.]

Bonus update: It’s come to my attention that Gwanker floated “fauxhemian” as a new term, earlier this year. The term is a decade old. (Updates January 23, 2000 essay.) Please note that Gwanker is an original coinage. [Thanks: Mark G.]

Further diversion may be found at MKTG Tumblr, and the Consumed Facebook page.
