NITCH

I have a new favorite website and Instagram account to get lost in: NITCH.

Draw With Type: Weird Type

Zach Lieberman and his wife Molmol Kuo created an iOS app that lets you draw with type, it’s appropriately called Weird Type. Type floating in space makes my heart go pitter patter.

Scrooser


I would love to take a Scrooser for a spin.

Brompton Bike

After years of dreaming of owning a Brompton Bike, the day has come. I am actively researching which model and which features I want. This spring I will be cruising through Brooklyn on my very own Brompton.

If you follow me on Instagram you might have caught this post from last October, when visiting Minneapolis for the AIGA conference, one of my followers Martha, offered to take me on a Brompton tour through the city. I said yes and proceeded to bike with this wonderful, big hearted stranger. Now she is a friend and I want a Brompton. :)

Do you own one? Have any recommendations? I admit, I am intrigued by the new Electric Model.

Pool Float

I don’t have a pool but this float makes me want to have one.

NYC Train Sign

Whoa! NYC Train Sign hosts real-time data from official sources to provide up-to-the-minute train, stock, and weather updates, straight to a handmade LED matrix display. A Brooklyn company! Gets my two thumbs up!

Jon Setzen speaking at CreativeMornings

7.5 years ago, my dear friend Jon Setzen asked me if he could bring CreativeMornings to Los Angeles. I said yes and boy am I glad I did. He did such a fantastic job that it convinced me to extend trust to other hosts, that I didn’t know, to expand the CreativeMornings network. Jon ran and grew the chapter for over 5 years and now, he got to grace the stage, finally, and tell his story.

Jon is a remarkable human. The world is better because of him. Watch his talk.

Ikigai is a Japanese concept meaning “A Reason For Being”. More over on Wikipedia.

New Life

I could have used this keychain 2.5 years ago when I started a big new chapter in my life. What a great gift for someone embarking on a new adventure.

AirPods Case

The Catalyst Case for AirPods is waterproof, drop proof and allows easy access to the Lightning port. It comes with a detachable carabiner so you can easily hook it on to your belt, bag or purse. Smart.

Scented Sacred Geometry Tattly

Today’s Tattly release is a multisensory experience combining the calming scent of Eucalyptus, a sound meditation, and six sacred geometric shapes. The accompanying sound meditation download by Sara Auster features her playing crystal singing bowls. Zen out everyone!

(Not sure what sacred geometry is? Here you go)

Art In Progress

A post shared by TAPPAN (@tappancollective) on

My son has been drawing on giant paper rolls, which made me show him the above video: Art in progress, featuring Caroline Denervaud aka @ideih on Instagram.

Tug

I was beyond bummed when I learned Apple killed the MagSafe on their latest laptops. I am clumsy and tend to trip over cables and thanks to MagSafe my laptops didn’t go flying. No longer.

Meet Tug: It works with any power cord you might trip on, by placing the magnetic break-away connection at the outlet. Smart.

Windows of San Francisco

Windows of San Francisco is an interactive “documentary” featuring views from 100 windows around San Francisco. What a wonderfully conceptual, slightly voyeuristic experiment!

(Thank you Jon Murray!)
