Twitter says, starting today, you’ll see “related headlines” appearing underneath tweets that have been embedded on websites.
There’s some confusion about whether these headlines will appear on websites or not. Some people, like Jay Rosen, hate the idea of embedding links to other people’s websites. Journalists aren’t going to like this.
Raise your hand if this will make it less likely that you will embed tweets in your posts and articles. http://t.co/dOtmSdqghD [raises hand]
About a year ago I wrote about Walnut Studiolo, a Portland-based craft shop that makes leather and wood accessories for bicycles.
If you think it’s reasonable to spend $72 for a leather cup holder that’s the perfect size for a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon, then you’ll love Walnut’s work.
I love the way their stuff looks, and their barrel-shaped saddlebag ($126) looks like an amazing piece of kit to tuck behind your Brooks saddle. Some of it is pretty silly though, like the leather six-pack holder ($89).
But now a video crew called Cineastas has made a short, loving documentary of all the hand-crafted labor that goes into making Walnut’s goods. It’s pretty gorgeous, in image and in sound.
You can almost smell the leather as Geoffrey Franklin carves strips of it with his razor-sharp blades.
