Claustrum Tape Dispenser

Claustrum Tape Dispenser

What a curious looking tape dispenser this is. I love it when objects are intriguingly weird in their form.

The Thanksgiving Reader

“I think that we can’t go around measuring our goodness by what we don’t do—by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we’ve got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include.”
– Robert Nelson Jacobs

This is a page out of The Thanksgiving Reader, a new side project by Seth Godin and a few of his colleagues. It’s a bonafide Thanksgiving Family Tradition Experiment. And I like it. Check it out here.

Interesting: Prototypo is a parameter-based font generator.

The Hummingbird is the lightest folding bike on the market. It weights a mere 6.5kg (~14 lb). Totally wishlisted!

Does Someone in Your Community Need a Website?

Cover pages CreativeMornings

This week, Squarespace launched Cover Pages, by far the simplest way to create a small online presence for just about anything in minutes.

To celebrate Cover Pages, CreativeMornings is running a campaign encouraging the community to create a web presence for people or organizations that should have one. Know someone in your community who could benefit from a small site? Make them a Cover Page and share their story with the world! But here’s the kicker: In the spirit of generosity, Squarespace is offering the CreativeMornings community a free year* for your Cover Page.

CreativeMornings will be featuring some of the best-ofs throughout the month of November. Get Started!

*Once you’ve signed up for a free trial, select the “Settings,” “Billing and Accounting,” and finally, “Billing.” You’ll need to enter your credit card info and the code DESIGNSOMEGOOD to receive 100% off your first year. Don’t worry, Squarespace will only charge your card when your year is up, and give you plenty of notice beforehand.

Pen Type-B

Love seeing how Che-Wei and Taylor have improved the Pen Type-A. I use mine often. And love it.

They are now launching Pen Type-B, a minimal pen in a pocketable sleeve engineered to last generations. Their current Kickstarter campaign is way over goal already. Totally happy for them.

Yay to makers of minimal, quality products.

The World’s Lightest Metal

This is fascinating: In 2011, scientists revealed a metal so light that it could sit atop a dandelion without crushing its delicate, fluffy seeds.

A Walking Bike (!)

The Lopifit is an Electric Walking Bike. Intriguing and absurd all at once.


If I was looking to…

… hire a film editor, I’d definitely try to hire William Laboury. He created this ‘mashup self-portrait’ of movie clips spliced together. Impressive.
