Kosmosphaera is a Swiss labor of love between Jodoc Elmiger and Valérie Jacquemet. Together they create giant glass marbles, reminding me so much of my childhood in the Swiss mountains. How stunning would one of these look in my home?

(In case you’re in London, they are currently showing at Tent London T3 booth L10.)

Enlarge the Box

“Every problem, every dilemma, every dead end we find ourselves facing in life, only appears unsolvable inside a particular frame or point of view. Enlarge the box, or create another frame around the data, and problems vanish, while new opportunities appear.”

I am hiring spent a lot of time in interviews last week. I just just stumbled upon this shirt and it made me laugh as I could see it making me highly uncomfortable and feeling stared at in an interview setting. Pretty funny.

Email Zombies

“There are two types of emailers: reactors, who rely on notifications and near-constant monitoring of their inboxes to nibble away at their email throughout the day, and batchers, who set aside specific chunks of time to power through their email, so they can ignore it the rest of the day. Not surprisingly, batchers are significantly more productive when it comes to getting shit done, and according to recent research, they’re also less stressed and more happy.”
