Rodcorp's How We Work site

I know I haven't written anything original in ages - but I'm afraid that's probably the way it's going to be for awhile. In the meantime, this is a handy place to note other things of interest. Like tonight, from one of Ted Hope's blogs - this reference to "How We Work." Ted writes:

MetaFilter lead me to Rodcorp's How We Work site, and although it is not the kind of thing we usually point out here at TATT, but although it's not about specific work, it's about the process to get us there, and it's kind of glorious itself.

From J.G. Ballard, to the Coen Brothers, to Malcolm Gladwell, to Walter Benjamin, the site has catalogued the methods of what people do to create. Although it is definitely a white male centered list, it is fun place to browse through, and may very well lead to some new habits. They have posted a list here.

We're interested in the habits, rituals and small (and occasionally big) methods people and teams use to get their work done. And in the specific anecdotes and the way people describe their own relationship to their own work.

It's a brilliant concept!
