A big thank you to 1407 Broadway for sponsoring this week’s RSS Feed.
The office as we know it is boring — innovation requires something different. Here’s your chance to do something about it.
The Space Forward Ideas Competition is centered on a simple task: reimagining your workplace. We want to know what environments inspire you to create, collaborate and excel — how does it look, feel and sound? What makes it unique? How does it challenge you? How would you reimagine your workplace? Enter for a chance to win.
Space Forward is sponsored by 1407 Broadway, a newly re-designed building and workspace in New York City that empowers forward-thinking leaders and companies to grow, create and achieve new possibilities.
“… a wise person is made, not born. Wisdom depends on experience, and not just any experience. You need the time to get to know the people that you’re serving. You need permission to be allowed to improvise, try new things, occasionally to fail and to learn from your failures. And you need to be mentored by wise teachers.”
Barry Schwartz, Our Loss of Wisdom
In this simple 3-minute TED talk, Dr. Laura Trice muses on the power of the magic words “thank you”. So powerful!
“There is no such thing as static happiness. Happiness is a mixed thing, a thing compounded of sacrifices, and losses, and betrayals.”
- John Updike
These Banner Sticky Notes by Fred & Friends made me chuckle. Oh the fun that could be head!
Wonderful interview with the legendary and wise Milton Glaser, as part of Costa Rica’s International Design Festival.
This retro cassette player iphone speaker made me chuckle. Probably sounds horrible, just like the original I had when I was a kid, sans iphone.
Amazon Dash is a handheld Wi-Fi wand that includes a barcode scanner and a microphone, allowing you to scan or say what you’re running low on without having to leave your kitchen. Woah, Amazon is agressively taking convenience to a whole new level. I can’t help but admit that this doesn’t feel good. Don’t get me wrong, I am guilty of ordering from Amazon. But I have consciously started reconsidering what exactly I am ordering online. If a small local business sells it close by, I will go there.
The examples they’re showing in this video are making me a bit sad; milk? You really want to get one jug of milk in a big cardboard delivered the next day? Also, doesn’t the iphone app already do exactly this?
ps: I first thought this was an April’s Fools Joke.
Fiercely Curious lets you buy local Brooklyn art online. Love this idea. I believe in the buying local, not just when it comes to my veggies.
I have been trying to change up my daily routines a bit and form new habits. So, when Jessica told me about Habit List last night I made sure to download it asap. It looks just like the app I’ve been waiting for to help me stay focused and on track with my new daily goals. It’s the little things that make a big difference, isn’t it?
