Stuff I'm looking at today: Tab Candy, Sustainable Prefabs, Julian Koenig and Chrome Experiments

Firefox Tab Candy

This American Life: 383 Origin Story
If you've been watching Mad Men some of this story might sound familiar. Real life Mad Men fighting for recognition for some of America's most iconic advertising campaigns on This American Life.
"TAL producer Sarah Koenig tells the story of her father, Julian Koenig, the legendary advertising copywriter whose work includes the slogan “Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking” and Volkswagen’s “Think Small” ads. For years Sarah has heard her dad accuse a former partner of stealing some of his best ideas, but until recently she never paid much attention.Then she started asking her dad for details of this fight for his legacy, and what she learned surprised her.
