Tuesday fun bits

Just a few neat bits that have caught my eye today:
  • Results of a cover design contest held by Penguin Books for a forthcoming novel. Interesting to see a range of artists interpret a concept...
    (via Kottke)

  • A short video on how crayons are made -- simultaneously mechanized and human (at least in this 1970s moment).

  • Main Street's possible response to the proposed Wall Street bail-out? Hey, Washington, Buy my shitpile too!
    Use the form below to submit bad assets you'd like the government to take off your hands. And remember, when estimating the value of your 1997 limited edition Hanson single CD "MMMbop", it's not what you can sell these items for that matters, it's what you think they are worth. The fact that you think they are worth more than anyone will buy them for is what makes them bad assets.
