I love seeing clever iterations on simple everyday products. This inside-out planter will not only save us all from over/under watering our plants, it looks beautiful as well.
This book has been out for a while and I finished it some time ago. I wanted to mention it however as it continues to influence and frame the way I think about the world we live in. I know Michael Pollan’s writing isn’t to everyones liking, but I found this book highly enjoyable as well as thought provoking.
For how little I actually blog, I sure spend a lot of time thinking about blogging tools. The latest app to pop up on my radar is Bear Blog, and it is indeed bare. It reminds me a little of txt.fyi in it’s simplicity, which is an aesthetic that I personally love. It’s great to see blogging initiatives like this springing up across the web along with the groundswell of folks talking about personal blogs again. I definitely miss the weird corners of the web that seem to have vanished with the rise of social media.
Another writing tool, but this one is much more personal. Although I have a few friends that swear by it, I’ve yet to work out how to make it a regular part of my life. I do really like the ‘second brain’ concept however and have been endeavouring to reduce the number of thoughts, tasks and ideas I carry around in my head.
