We wanted to take a moment to commend Core-toonist lunchbreath on his awesome (and accidental) response to the latest One Hour Design Challenge, The Future of Digital Reading (based on research from Portigal Consulting). Whether lunchbreath knew it or not, the Trapper-Kindle addresses all aspects of the latest challenge— it "includes the sensual" by enclosing the kindle in a familiar case; "supports the social side of reading" by addressing questions of identity and personalization; "considers the ritual of reading" by referencing the once-popular trapper-keeper; and "develops an eco-system" by suggesting how this object could be personalized en masse and grow a culture around it.
Applause, lunchbreath. And for the rest of you, this is a reminder to enter! There's lots to explore in 90 minutes, but your entry can take any form, even (and maybe especially) a one panel cartoon. Deadline: October 14th.
