What is Adobe Kuler?
Kuler is a cloud-based application for creating color themes or color palettes using an iPhone or your browser. You can search, explore, and browse thousands of color themes in the Kuler community, and be inspired to create more color themes.
I never got around to talk in detail about Kuler. And when I did, I found that my colleague Mallika has already written an excellent piece. I might as well send you over to that excellent piece. Without much ado:

There are several Font menu enhancements that are coming your way in InDesign CC. Terry White shows you exactly what to expect, when you get InDesign CC.
Found this very interesting project created by Waldek Wegrzyn as part of his diploma thesis at the Akademii Sztuk Pięknych in Katowice, Poland.
The project explores, and illustrates how to use a book as a Human-Computer-Interface. It uses flexible circuits and sensors printed onto paper and hidden below the content in order to tell relevant software what page the reader is on and what they are doing with the book.
To read more about the project, see waldek-wegrzyn-paper-book-as-interface.
Also, do have a look at the Electrobiblioteka website.
