- Nendo Drawer House: You really have to see this one to believe it. Everything from kitchen to bedroom, living room to stairs is hidden from view until you “open” the drawers that line the walls. Designed by a Japanese architecture and design firm. [hat tip: MoCo Loco]
An interactive exploration of the words and pictures that define the time. Every hour, 10×10 collects the 100 words and pictures that matter most on a global scale, and presents them as a single image, taken to encapsulate that moment in time.
- Google Maps: Here’s yet another cool new Google tool, one I’ll be using from now on instead of MapQuest. One of the great things about it is that it incorporates Google’s local search feature, so if you search for, say, coffee houses in Grand Rapids, MI, you’ll get a map of the city with little flags representing all the coffee houses. Click on a flag, and you’ll get the street address, the web address, and options for driving directions. I promise I’m not being paid by Google to trumpet their products. (Note: apparently it’s a little buggy in Safari.) [hat tip: A Whole Lotta Nothing]
- Timbuk2: Very cool bags
- All Songs Considered: This is my not-so-secret source of great new music. Each week, All Songs Considered features an eclectic group of musicians from different style and different countries. Start clicking through the archives, and you’ll wonder where the time went.
- MasterViews: The site says it has the
Best resources, ideas and tools for creating, managing and delivering effective PowerPoint presentations, and it might be true.
