My kids were lucky to get their hands on a not yet released TocaBoca app called Builders. I have never seen both my 7 and 3 year old more enthralled by a game. Ella kept shouting: “This is so much fun!”
And now that they’re sleeping, it’s my turn! Make sure to watch the above video to see what the fun is all about. The app is scheduled to be released on Thursday!
I just discovered Method’s Ocean Plastic Soap Bottle. It’s the world’s first bottle made with a blend of recovered ocean plastic and post-consumer recycled plastic, a combination that results in a uniquely gray resin.
How fantastic is this? How much do I love this brand?
My studiomate Kio Stark just launched her latest ebook titled Don’t Go Back to School. Fact is, schools don’t have a monopoly on learning anymore as more people are declining traditional education and college degrees. Instead they’re getting the knowledge, training, and inspiration they need outside of the classroom.
In Don’t Go Back to School Kio draws on extensive research and over 100 interviews with independent learners, and with that offers the ultimate guide to learning without school. The book provides models and methods for taking a new kind of path through learning, and transforming that alternative education into an exciting career path.
Kio provides concrete strategies and resources for getting started as an independent learner. If you’re debating whether college, trade school, or independent learning will get you where you want to be, Don’t Go Back to School is essential reading.

When nudging vector points, Photoshop exhibits some strange behaviour, linked to how far you’re currently zoomed in. At 100%, nudging using the arrow keys will move your vector point exactly 1 pixel. At 200%, nudging moves the point half a pixel. At 300%, it’ll move a third of a pixel.
