Dan is an activist calling out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend — not for what they get done.
Love this DIY idea: Using ping pong balls and LED lights to make a festive garland.
“When people have their own reason for doing something, they believe those reasons more deeply and adhere to the behavior more strongly.” Always insightful to listen to Daniel Pink.

A big thank you to Karma for sponsoring this week of my RSS Feed.
Frustrated by the constant struggle of finding reliable WiFi during frequent travels to the US, a rogue Dutch designer built Karma — a tiny box that allows you to bring WiFi with you wherever you go. It has no contract or monthly fees. You simply buy the data you need and only add more when you need it, just like you’d refill your car when it’s low on gas. Even better, your data never expires.
With Karma there’s no more hunting for an accommodating coffee shop to complete and upload a project, or working out of a dingy hotel room with expensive and flaky internet. Karma works where you work. It’s designed to get out of the way so you can get stuff done.
Pre-order your Karma Go now and receive special holiday pricing of $99 ($50 off the normal price of $149). Offer ends soon, so grab it while you can!
Now this kids desk by RAFA kids is a beauty! You see it closed in the image above but once the lid is lifted you discover another layer of the desk with rounded corners and hidden organizer. Perfect place to put notebooks, iPad or little toys and treasures. Vertical part is good exposition space for drawings, photos or important messages. I’d take a grown up version!
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
I noticed this beauty of a West Elm coffee table at my friend’s house over the weekend. Bookmarked!
Some lamps are a little too tall. Others are a little too short. This is not a problem with Cranky, an adjustable-height table lamp.
Traffic light that lets you play Pong with person on the other side officially installed in Germany. What’s not to love?
