    An amazingly insightful book that felt slightly ahead of its time

  2. Carl Gauger Carl Gauger says:

    The best tools feel like extensions of the hand or of the mind When a craftsman shapes material with a tool the tool is not the locus of his attention the work is or should be A tool that we have to pay attention to or that we have to shift attention away from work to operate is a poor tool McCullough attacks this uestion of how digital tools can be an extension and not an interruption of our work With digital mediums we are manipulating bits not atoms How may tacit and kinesthetic knowledge find a useful place in digital creation and control? Tools too often get in the way rather than multiplying effort There is much here to apply to the tools we create as well as the tools we use This book is a very thoughtful treatment of the road to technological craftsmanship

    An incredible book about our relationship to digital media and how we as creators can transition from digital literacy into digital mastery This book is important to me for many reasons 1 It solidified my notions about understanding digital media as a material and 2 how can we think about craftsmanship in a post digital era

  4. Shane Shane says:

    A book about the base concepts behind craftsmanship and medium brought forward to the debate over digital design tools and methodology
