Mr. Gear demonstrates a technique for lighting a match using a rubber band and another match.
While visiting my friend in Charlottesville last week I noticed her wrapping her cheese in this super design-y Cheese Storage Paper by Formaticum. The two-ply paper allows cheese to breathe while maintaining optimal humidity preventing the cheese from drying out. Love that they include a video on how to perfectly wrap your cheese on their product page:
Respect your cheese!
Team Tinybop did it again. They just launched Infinite Arcade and it’s blowing my mind! It basically allows you (or your little ones, of course) to create your own Arcade games. Start out with a classic game to build on and then add building blocks like hot lava, disco bricks, crystal, trampoline tiles etc. And, the best part: you can design your own characters. I know what I am doing this weekend! Get the game!
On the weekends May 7 through June 12, Creative Time and the Brooklyn Navy Yard will present the public artwork Fly by Night by artist Duke Riley. Thousands of pigeons will be released from a converted historic boat in an orchestrated performance. Leg bands on the pigeons, used historically to carry messages, will be replaced by LED lights controlled by remote control. This will be stunning to whitness!
Hoping the pigeons aren’t suffering though. Seems though as Duke knows what he is doing as he has been raising pigeons most of his adult life and is working with pigeon experts and animal welfare groups on this.
Andrew Hessel, a futurist and catalyst in biological technology, delivers a powerful and thought-provoking CreativeMornings talk about the interplay between ethics, society, and life.

Philip Coppola is a man who loves New York’s subway stations so much that he’s spent the last 38 years sketching them in glorious detail with just a ball point pen. I admire this man’s patience and being in it for the long haul. We need more of this.
“When your mind is telling you you’re done, you’re really only 40 percent done.” A Navy SEAL lesson told by Jesse Itzler.
Hardship can either brake you or make you. This is the story behind the sign language musician Signmark. Beautiful CreativeMornings talk from our Helsinki chapter.

Adam Grant shares why great innovators procrastinate, feel doubt and fear and have bad ideas.
Jürgen Siebert, our unstoppable CreativeMornings/Berlin host just recently hosted his 50th event! All in his free time, with his team of volunteers. You can’t put a price on what he is doing for the Berlin creative community! Team HQ has so much gratitude for him and his team! SO MUCH!
