Signal v. Noise, a publication about the web
Who said it can’t be a circle?
Who said it can be a circle?
Wait, now I’m confused.
Now I’m looking forward to the next time my friend says “think outside the square”.
That would make a ping pong table really hard to play on.
It’s a circle.
The only thing I know is that I never said insight couldn’t be circle.
Makes perfect sense to me that insight can be anything…
Circle! What? No way, it CANNOT be a circle. What were you thinking? Circles… sheeesh.
Steve did. He said it had to be a cube.
spiral is more like it.
You know… for kids.
I love that you get comments for what was probably an accidental publish. And that 1 Google Reader user likes it.
Although, it could just be high brow philosophy that I’m not getting…. ;)
@Nathan – I think Jason’s going for the semi-philosophical thing.
People say “Think outside the square” or “Think outside the box” but those statements in themselves aren’t doing what they’re preaching.
That’s my theory at least.
I accidentally the whole circle =/
It can. But should it be?
some priest somewhere.
Oh, sorry, circle. I thought you said box with CSS-based round corners. My mistake…
Interesting post, I like the part about the circle.
Why does it have to be anything? Let it decide for itself. Stop boxing shapes into categories…
If it wakes up this morning and wants to be a square, then let it.
If we were all circles, wouldn’t like be boring???
It can be a circle, look – http://www.schillmania.com/projects/soundmanager2/
Comparing the circle analogy to what Nietzsche implied in Thus Spoke Zarathustra we can further elaborate on the theory of the creative mind that it needs an oval sphere that guides it so it constantly evolves and guides you to your better self, thus pushing the need for change and bringing the gap between the rich and the poor, an innovative approach to what has been a worldwide problem that has been approached in schools all over the world, seeking the brightest scholars and the ones excelling in all areas of life to share and connect and continually push the limits of the human mind, implying how things such as poverty and illiteracy are as bullets that rip apart our society, that is rotting with the entertainment industry, with the likes of Britney Spears and Brad Pitt, who are regular, sensitive, often humble human beings that need the support and approval of others while we regard them as just things and we dig into their private affairs, meddling in their lives as if they did to ours, completely sabotaging our chances of living a life worth living.
It should be a circle – no start / no end – repeating itself
I’m guessing this is in response to this…
You need to wait for it…
He’s probably talking about the Basecamp logo being put in a yellow circle on the new signup form: http://37signals.com/svn/posts/1867-design-decisions-new-signup-form
Who said it can’t be? Right, but who said it should be?
It’s a phallic world though. :P
In Soviet Russia, box thinks outside you.
Zen: Be the circle.
I blame for pixel for saying “it can’t be a circle.”
I’ve never successfully made a perfect circle with a bunch of squares, but maybe I’m not trying hard enough.
Right, that’s a new question for questionparty.com
Retread ? Refresh?? Redo???
Just noticed that “Getting Real” has the same Seth Godin quote about peril.
Maybe time for a new one?
Are you drunk?
realy interesting post, I like the part about the circle.
Spongebob said it
You know. For kids!
but you can’t have a triangle jerk or a square jerk. It just wouldn’t work.
Jason co-founded Basecamp back in 1999. He also co-authored REWORK, the New York Times bestselling book on running a "right-sized" business. Co-founded, co-authored... Can he do anything on his own?
