It all started with a hat.
Several months ago, one of my anonymous Pixar Theory Interns (that’s a thing on a resume) came to me with a crazy proposition: Andy’s mom is [REDACTED].
I laughed. I then agreed.
Fascinating! Who is Andy’s mom anyway and have those sneaky scoundrels at Pixar pulled one over on us all? Really, the whole idea makes me think of Pixar’s attention to detail as resembling Apple’s; how deep into a story (or backstory for that matter) do these wizards of cinema go before plotting out the first movie, let alone its sequels? Click-through to check out the full logic.
One last thing, I would love (and share) any post that ends with this line:
“Or, do you hate fun, love, and destiny?”
Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
