A few months ago I posted some sketches I had done for Wired magazine. (The piece for that never ended up running, but I won't go into that heartache.) One of the sketches was an illustration of the term "Culturomics," which had been coined by a team of Harvard researchers to describe their work. One of the researchers must have stumbled across my blog, because a few weeks later they asked if I would like to use the sketch I had done as the basis for their logo. I have never had this happen, and I was thrilled. Be sure, from now on I will definitely be posting my sketches!
