Friday Five: Short attention spans welcome

It’s been a long slog of a week, so I’ll be practically twitteresque in my introduction today. Here are five short but sweet and thought-provoking posts for your quick reading:

  1. The four horsemen of mediocrity. Pithy insight from Seth Godin.
  2. The trolliest headline ever, and it was written in 1922.
  3. What happens when brands overextend — an xkcd cartoon
  4. Web design: responsive vs. adaptive. OK, this one is relatively longish. But not as long as most web design blog posts I’ve seen.
  5. Photo: All this technology is making us antisocial, via @HistoryInPics.

Happy weekend.
