This is my new favorite internet tool and it will be yours too if you love music. It's called MuxTape and it lets you upload mp3s to create playlists that you can listen to or send to your friends. Check out my most recently created playlist.

Their site technology offers a clean and simple interface for uploading and playing songs. It's one of the best pieces of web software I've seen so far for sharing or preparing a playlist.

DIY Furniture

The Do It Yourself revolution is nothing new, but there have been some great videos popping up on YouTube that are well made tutorials. I've been impressed with the ability to pass along all the necessary steps required to build something useful. The most recent one that I've come across is a video on how to create furniture from cardboard. It's aesthetic and functional.

Do The Test - Biker Awareness

I've used this effect studied by Daniel Simmons to teach strategy classes because it's a great example of inhibitors to thinking outside the box and the human potential to miss the big picture when you become too focused on something very specific.

This is an interesting campaign and I'm glad the psychology was re-purposed to help create biker awareness.


It is a timely release after last week's accident where a police officer ran over 3 cyclists in the Bay Area. Cycling has been getting a lot of press lately and rightfully so. Changing the way people commute in the urban areas can have a big impact on urban areas and cycling is an option that is gaining momentum. NPR recently talked about how the San Francisco Bike Coalition is trying make San Francisco a safer and easier place to bike.
