The Tremendous 10 link roundup, #96

  1. Jessica’s Client Email Helper | “negotiating incoming project terms over email is difficult for even the well-seasoned professional. I’ve created this handy tool to help you say “no” to free and low-budget work and to help ask for more favorable contract terms before the start of a project. I tried to make it as comprehensive and flexible as possible, but every creative industry is a bit different so feel free to adapt my words to best suit your personal situation.”
  2. WOMEN WHO DRAW | “Women Who Draw is an open directory of female* professional illustrators, artists and cartoonists who take freelance work. It was created a by a group of women artists in an effort to increase the visibility of female illustrators, female illustrators of color, LBTQ+, and other minority groups of female illustrators. We hope this directory will be used by publishers, art directors and editors to find less visible illustrators, and encourage them to work with these illustrators more frequently.”
  3. An oral history of ‘Get a Mac,’ Part 1 | “How an excruciating seven-month quest for an idea Steve Jobs didn’t hate gave birth to one of the funniest, most effective campaigns in Apple’s history, told by the writers, crew and actors who created it 10 years ago.”
  4. Five Leadership Hacks | “To me, a hack is a clever or unexpectedly efficient means of getting something done. A good hack should feel like cheating because the value created by the hack feels completely disproportionate from the work done. With this definition in mind, I present five leadership hacks I regularly use. These are not practices designed to redefine your leadership philosophy. They are hacks.”
  5. Defending Accounts Against Common Attacks | “While we often worry about sophisticated digital attacks, the most common attacks for accessing news organizations’ accounts depend on only a few simple weaknesses. These weaknesses are usually a combination of predictable passwords, phishing emails designed to steal login credentials, as well as malicious file attachments in email and elsewhere. While the attacks are simple, so are the defenses. This collection of resources and learning materials will walk you through practices recommended by security specialists for defending your newsroom against common attacks on your accounts.”
  6. When Tyranny Takes Hold | “Xu Hongci’s experiences in China show that autocracy demands collaborators.”
  7. Against Self-Criticism | “Adam Phillips on How Our Internal Critics Enslave Us, the Stockholm Syndrome of the Superego, and the Power of Multiple Interpretations.”
  8. Self-Control Is Just Empathy With Your Future Self | “The same part of the brain that allows us to step into the shoes of others also helps us restrain ourselves.”
  9. SEEKING FAILED ARTISTS FOR ASSOCIATE POSITION | “We’re looking for a talented, driven, career-oriented individual who’s willing to give up on their dreams for the betterment of this hip, multinational tech corporation. If you’re looking to smile on the outside while dying a slow, grueling death on the inside — this is the job for you.”
