Here's five interesting things I've come across lately in my blog feeds.
Burke Gilman Trail Concept - a glossy brochure from a design firm for an overhaul of the Burke Gilman trail on the UW campus. I love this kinda stuff. (PDF)
50 Small Things to Help Improve Your Customer Service - a slideshare of quick hits. And remember, it's all customer service because you are someone's customer or someone is your customer. I don't mean that in a jaded or negative way.
Even 5 over makes a difference - two cars, one traveling the speed limit, one going five miles faster - both collide with the same object at the same time in this video. A reminder to slow down.
Instant slideshow creator Biggie - clever simple tool for very quick presentation slides when you're going for simplicity and impact. No transitions + limited options = clear slides that are easy to create in your browser.
How clutter affects your brain and what you can do about it - some good stuff. Also a neat photo of what Steve Jobs' office looked like - not at all what you would have expected.
