I wouldn’t mind owning one of these customizable calendar stamps by Mizushima.
Merlin Mann built an email app that only lets you *send* email, not read them. It directs you straight to Gmail’s “Compose Message” window in a new tab of your default browser.
Set it as your Mac’s default email app and—BOOM!—every time OS X needs to create an email message, you get to just send email without having to look at email.
The YogoMat is an eco-friendly yoga mat that folds and secures to fit in bags and purses and is easy to clean. Best of all, it’s 100% recyclable.

Hopscotch is a brand new iPad app that teaches kids coding. It allows them to create an interactive program on the iPad by dragging blocks of code and dropping them into a scripting area. No typing required. Beautifully designed! This makes me so happy! Can’t wait to try this with my daughter tonight!
The fine folks of Fictive Kin created slashpurpose.org. They believe that the world would be a better place if the people trying to shape it spoke openly and plainly about their vision for the future.
The Fictive Kin guys think a fine place to do that is on your own /purpose page, to share the “why” behind your “what”. Like this! yourlovelysite.com/purpose.
Sharing your purpose means being explicit about the place you ultimately want to take people and about the metrics you use for measuring success.
I am determined to create a /purpose for CreativeMornings and Tattly. We already have one for TeuxDeux. Thanks for the inspiration, Fictive Kin.
What’s your /purpose?
