Haiti remains a place of profound need, anguish, desperation and danger, with a few glimmers of hope and slowly growing capabilities to receive and distribute the international aid now flowing in. Sporadic looting, sometimes violent, was met with force by security officials and ordinary citizens, resulting in a number of further deaths and injuries. The tenuous security situation has led to at least one temporary evacuation of a medical facility, to protect the care-givers. Despite the long time since the earthquake, at least five people were pulled from the rubble alive this weekend, including a young girl trapped inside a supermarket who was fortunately surrounded by food, and survived on fruit snacks.

Just heard the sad news that I.D. Magazine, the country’s oldest product design magazine, is headed to the [rapidly filling up] magazine graveyard. Happily, the Annual Design Review will continue — online — even expanding to include a catalog of past winners. So there’s some consolation amidst the disappointment.
I think I’ll go thumb through some old back issues today.
Thanks magCulture for the heads up.
