This archive has been around for some time but, I think this web site is the first one they have had that functions well and does not need a password. The work image quality could be a bit better though.
“The three lowest fields for assistant professor are visual and performing arts, English language and literature and history…”
Another reason for design faculty to split from art programs and form a “Professional Design Department”: They would be paid better by being compared to architecture, engineering, and business and not be lumped in with art department salaries.
PDN: Is it a mistake to think of interns as free labor? Alan Koral: Yes, it is.
PDN: Why? AK: Because of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and related state laws, which require the payment of minimum wage and overtime for employment. Under the FLSA, to “employ” means “to permit to work.”
PDN annoyingly takes articles down. The link is to a PDF from Koral.
“Dog domestication and human settlement occurred at the same time, some 15,000 years ago, raising the possibility that dogs may have had a complex impact on the structure of human society. Dogs may have been the sentries that let people settle without fear of surprise attack. They may also have been the first major item of inherited wealth, preceding cattle, and so could have laid the foundations for the gradations of wealth and social hierarchy that differentiated settled groups from the egalitarianism of their hunter gatherer predecessors. Notions of inheritance and ownership, Dr. Driscoll said, may have been prompted by the first dogs to permeate human society.”

Treat them with more care! They are worth some money now.
I keep finding that some of my design books are worth quite a lot of money!
A good copy of Genus Loci by Christian Norberg-Shultz goes for over $100.
Packaging Prototypes by Edward Denison and Richard Cawthray is now worth quite a bit of money. A used version in good shape is worth a couple hundred dollars. Mine is slightly worn so, maybe it is worth $150 used.
“Peter Behrens was not only the father of German industrial design – he was also the founder of corporate identity. Working for AEG, Behrens was the first person to create logos, advertising material, and company publications with a consistent, unified design.”
