This is making me think too. As with Jason Kottke. Peter says: Not too long ago, I was very much engaged with many communities. I attended events on design and information architecture and web stuff. Now, I find myself on the periphery of a lot of groups, but none of them feel like a home [...]
Kottke links to a new series from Moleskine: City guide books with lots of blank pages for your notes, adresses, stories and drawings. Great idea! I wish more books came with blank pages. More space for notes. Books like “Blink” and “Freakonomics” – books that triggers tons of ideas as I read them. Maybe Moleskine [...]
Clever. And funnier.
[rant_mode on] Here’s a promise: I will not shop at XXL more. Period. XXL is a chain of huge shops with sports equipment. They sell shoes, sportswear, bikes, skis, tents, helmets, rackets, balls etc. They have a quite good website at XXL.no where you can buy sports equipment online. Almost every week all households around [...]
Head over to aharef.info, enter your site URL, and you get a wonderful visual representation of the complexity of your site. Here’s brilliantdays.com: When finished, make a screenshot, put it on Flickr and tag it websitesasgraphs. Not that I didn’t know it already: This site needs a cleanup. A kiss.
We share (almost) everything: Our pictures, our bookmarks, our travel and wishes. So what is next? Drinking. Both cork’d and Winelog let you register the wines you drink (or store), get recommendations and share your drinking habits with trusted friends. And total strangers. Both look nice and web 2.0. And I’m sure quite a few [...]
Did you know that when you’re typing in Cocoa apps, you can write a few letters of a word, then press Option-Escape, and you get a pop-up list with word suggestions. Like this: This works in TextEdit, Pages, Safari text fields, all text fields in iLife apps etc. Very useful!
You don’t need to read brilliantdays.com to find out that Apple and Nike launched a new line of products together – the Nike+iPod. As Kevin Lim writes on his site: “…was literally quite blown away.” This is the revolution I think this is the start of a revolution in the way people measure what their [...]
If you have a blog, MySpace, LiveJournal, whatever… DO link to the most stupid ad ever made. And feel free to call the link “most stupid ad ever made”. Here are the slogans that ends the first of two 60-second “masterpieces” (you can see both of them on the page as both QT and WMV). [...]
I’ve just posted a few pics from the Simple Minds concert at Rockfeller Music Hall in Oslo, February 19, 2006. I didn’t take them myself as my T630 camera… well sucks. So these are taken by Kai who has a much better cameraphone. There are five pictures in all. It was a great concert. Ever [...]
Nikon has started a new campaign called “Nikon Stunning Gallery”. It works like this: You upload your picture(s) to Flickr and tag them “nikonstunninggallery”. A team from Nikon looks through all pictures tagged “nikonstunninggallery”, picks out the best ones (preferably the ones taken with Nikon cameras I hope!) and publishes then on the Nikon Stunning [...]
Apple put up a timelapse cam at their flagship New York Apple store. Perfect way for a mac geek to propose to his girl friend, Uschi Lang. Pay attention to the left after 2/3 of the video. Update According to Jason Kottke, Uschi Lang said “yes”: At 4:30 am, he snuck out of bed without [...]
Andy Rosen posts awesome photos from his rock photographer era in London, 1976-1984. The above shot of Simon Le Bon is one of the over 60 great photos so far. Other include Siouxsie and the Banshees, Clash, Boy George, Jim Kerr of Simple Minds, Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode and Malcolm Maclaren. Overtime I will [...]
This is coolest looking gadget I’ve seen for a long time. The Grundig PSW 5000 is a wireless speaker. Hook up the small unit to your stereo, iPod, computer whatever. And the big one where you want your tunes to be heard. It’s wireless, waterproof and has a “360° surround sound system”, according to the [...]
