Jon Burgerman

The story of Jon Burgerman from Bas Berkhout on Vimeo.

Jon Burgerman is a friend, creative workspace neighbor, a Tattly artist and my son’s creative idol. His most recent book It’s Great to Create spurred many super creative adventures in my house. If you have little ones, I highly recommend grabbing a copy!

Being a fan of all things Burgerman, I was delighted to see my friend Bas Berkhout working on a mini documentary on Jon. It JUST went live. It’s personal and oh-so-timely. Watch above!

And make sure to check out other mini documentaries in Bas’ series called Like knows Like. Here’s the one he did on me, years ago.

Along the foggy coasts of Peru, where millions of people don’t have access to clean water, Abel Cruz Gutiérrez helps catch 200 to 350 liters of water per day with each ‘fog catcher’ he sets up. Very moving.

A Domino Machine

This wooden domino row building machine made my kids and my day!

#HeyTwitter

Shahak Shapira reported about 300 hate tweets. Twitter didn’t delete them, so he sprayed them in front of their office.

Hey @Jack, hate Tweets are a real problem.

Facing The Future Without Fear

“Is there something we can do, each of us, to be able to face the future without fear?” asks Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks. In this talk, the spiritual leader gives us three specific ways we can move from the politics of “me” to the politics of “all of us, together.”

Respond, not React

I needed to hear this talk by Tara Brach today.

Interview with John Maeda

I really enjoyed this conversation between Claire Lew and John Maeda. So much respect and admiration for John and how he navigates life.

Tinker Friday

I am completely smitten by this collection of videos created by Dina Amin. On Fridays she picks a random product, disassembles it, examines it and makes a stop motion story with its parts. This is delightful!
