Little review of the new tablet browser from Opera, written for Core77.com. It’s pretty neat. 
"For almost two decades, Opera has designed and distributed alternative desktop, mobile, and tablet-optimized web browsers, amassing arguably the world’s most extensive bank of knowledge on the subject while they worked—and on their latest effort, Coast by Opera, they’ve put it all to good use. Designed specifically for the iPad, Coast isn’t just an improvement on existing tablet browsers (not even their own), or a condensed version of a desktop browser. Instead, it’s a complete re-imagination of what a tablet browser should look like, act like and feel like, for the way we use tablets most. The app launched yesterday at Tech Crunch Disrupt and suffice it to say we’re impressed.”

Later this afternoon, the sixth annual Doe Bay Festival kicks off. One of the Pacific Northwest’s best-kept secrets, less than a thousand tickets to this damn-near-perfect little gathering sell out in a few short minutes each year. Just a casual stroll and a ferry ride from our front door in Seattle (or a quick drive, a casual stroll and a ferry ride from our home in Portland), we can almost see it from here. And to the lucky souls chugging westward across the water to Orcas Island today, we wish you the best of times— and the best of luck next year. We’re officially in the competition for a couple of those tickets, and we’re not afraid to throw an elbow or two.

I did a little writing recently for the guys over at Hand Eye Supply, the Portland-based retail arm of industrial design site Core77.com. They’re teaming up with Urban Outfitters to present the month-long Pop-Up Institute for Craft and Ingenuity at Space15Twenty in LA, running August 16-September 15. 
My creative toolkit contains exactly one thing- my laptop- but I like to think of myself as a maker also: more a maker of stories than a maker of things, but everything has its place. This project was a ton of fun- and coming soon to Core77, a closer look at what the Portland-area community of makers, doers and DIYers has to offer. More on that soon.

In the course of my daily internet wanderings, I stumbled across this excellent project by Gary Robbins, printed by Portland’s very own Container Corps.
