I can’t wait until Secret Holiday has this banner back in stock. Definitely a message I wish I would have had hanging in my house a few years ago. And now.
“We live in an age when you say casually to somebody ‘What’s the story on that?’ and they can run to the computer and tell you within five seconds. That’s fine, but sometimes I’d just as soon continue wondering. We have a deficit of wonder right now.”

In a beautiful campaign called #MeetMyCrew JCrew is celebrating the power of the group. Groups that are saving oceans, empowering young men and women, rescuing animals or making space for creativity. The campaign aims to remind us of the simple, optimistic principle that we’re better together. CreativeMornings is one of seven groups featured prominently on their site and in their fall catalog. Mind blown. Can’t believe this actually happened.
Come and attend a CreativeMornings in your city.

Elizabeth Gilbert on distinguishing between hobbies, jobs, careers, & vocation. This was needed.

– Adam Grant
Web 1.0 was about publishing – anyone can write and have global distribution.
Web 2.0 was about interaction – connect with others, collaborate in real time, data.
Web 3.0 is about value transfer – money can now be programmed and embedded in any app.

Conserve the Sound« is an online museum for vanishing and endangered sounds. The sound of a dial telephone, a walkman, a analog typewriter, a pay phone, a 56k modem, a nuclear power plant or even a cell phone keypad are partially already gone or are about to disappear from our daily life. Love this!
