A few of my favorite magazine subscriptions just ended and my shelves are packed full of old issues while my sustainability side urges me to save paper…what to do!
Aha, “Mygazines.com is your free place to browse, share, archive and customize unlimited magazine articles uploaded by you, the Mygazines community.”
Sweet. I’m not sure who’s going to scan and upload all the pages each month, but it seems like someone does because most of my favorite magazines are on there with really nice scans, along with a snazzy GUI for navigating them. None of the fancy $100 mags, but the basic sets from the airport are up there!
Some pretty sweet Obama shirts over at ObamaIsTheMan.com. Take your pick from the “Change Tour”, Badass Obama” or “Obamatoo” T-shirts! As the back of the “Badass Obama” shirt says, “talkin’ bout change, sucka.”
The Obama brand is everywhere yo!
This made me smile!
Grow up,but stay a kid
“71% of adults used to play on the streets when they were young. 21% of children do so now. Are we designing children and play out of the public realm?
This project is a study into different ways of bringing play back into public space. It focuses on ways of incorporating incidental play in the public realm by not so much as having separate play equipment that dictates the users but by using existing furniture and architectural elements that indicate playful behaviour for all.
It asks us to question the current framework for public space and whether it is sufficient while also giving permission for young people to play in public.
Oooooooooo, my gosh, Wasara makes some unbelievably beautiful paper tableware pieces with a very keen sense in Japanese aesthetics. I especially love the slight curves in the plates to fit around your hand. I’m not sure if I’d ever want to throw these plates away but they are eco-friendly in manufacturing and in material.
If your seeking something more sturdy you can always buy the beautiful plastic “Tast.es” object though there is a beauty about 1 time use paper plates.
Watch out Segway, Toyota’s rolled out a pretty nifty tiny transporter with a “look mom, no hands” option! Check out the video after the jump… seems like it’ll get you places, not in a rush, and for the same 5k price tag as a Segway.
Dells launched Community Pulse which organizers their customers “Compliments” and “Complaints” along with a cloud of tags on subjects and a graph on subjects to see how they are doing overtime with individual categories.
Instead of hiding away all their complaints, show it off and improve. The more transparent a company can be about their issues, the sooner they can fix them. Fail faster, improve sooner.
Woa! No more stitching, just Gluing… Yup, this Dutch manufacture Glues their jeans together! Looks pretty slick, though not very sustainable using glue. I’d love a pair if I make it over to Amsterdam soon… let me know if any readers out there can help me out =)
