I spent all weekend doing manual labor, and write this now with the same, dull, full-body ache that I had at the end of so many days earlier in my career. I've missed that feeling; it was a big part of my own coming-of-age, and my ability to induce it in myself is one of the things that I'm most proud of.

Also, just a reminder - projects are awesome.

Lastly - I was *amazed* at the popularity of that Brangelina/Trump link last week - it was the most clicked item by a factor of two!

Wayfinding & Strategy.

Making & Manufacturing.

Maintenance, Repair & Operations.

Distribution & Logistics.

Inspection & Testing.


Credit to Ryan, Dan, and Reilly for sending links this week. If you see something, send something :)


I should probably just spend some time in a forging shop.

Love, Spencer.

p.s. - We should be better friends. Send me a note - coffee's on me :)
