…if you have a day job you don’t take seriously because you plan to be a novelist, are you producing? Are you writing pages of fiction, however bad? As long as you’re producing, you’ll know you’re not merely using the hazy vision of the grand novel you plan to write one day as an opiate. The view of it will be obstructed by the all too palpably flawed one you’re actually writing.

Beautiful visuals and an interesting idea of visualizing data in the space around us

Who knew FedEx envelopes could be so handy?

Great talk by David Kelley which brought a tear my eye when he started talking about his brush with cancer and his daughter.

It also was a good kick in the backside, because I am not really sure if I am doing work that is important to me as a person.

An Instaprinter for your Instagrams

Printing pictures based on location and tags — very nice! I wish I had thought of it first. It’s available for pre-order on Kickstarter.

A fantastic idea

Vertical gyms in the slums of Caracas

In the space scarce slums of Caracas in Venezuela, how do you build sports facilities to cater to everyone? The architects of Urban-Think Tank decided to build different facilities vertically, of course. A multi-purpose basketball court on the first floor, a gym on the second, a running track on the third and a football court on the roof. A brilliant idea to keep everyone fit and maybe even some kids off the streets.

Instead of futsal courts or isolated exercise corners, vertical gyms like these would be absolutely brilliant in HDB estates here in Singapore.

Lock up the ice-cream and throw away the combination code!

That’s a cute, gimmicky device from Ben & Jerry’s. I’m sure The Wife (and my dentist) would think it’s a marvellous idea, too.

The Bento Book/Laptop exists only as an idea for now

The Bento Book is a great, futuristic idea where the laptop is merely a shell for all your portable devices to dock into. One image isn’t going to do it justice – visit René Lim‘s Bento Book page for a compelling argument for modular portability.

(While you’re there, do check out René’s other work which is incredibly nice and well thought out.)

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.

Great picture from Lindisfarne (Holy Island) in England where fishermen recycle their old boats by turning them upside down and creating a storage shed

Very nice photograph by Kevin Wakelam, which gets my upboat. Or should that be a downboat?

Great idea and execution by Wieden+Kennedy (Tokyo). And I have to admit, the Japanese women just make it all very cute, too.

Seems like an angrily drawn 'comic' but it is quite entertaining

A classic stand for the iPad

If the world comes to a flaming, burning end and I become a fucking hipster who totes around a magical and revolutionary iPad, I would probably get this beautifully re-purposed and thoughtfully re-crafted Classic Macintosh stand to go with it.

Meanwhile, before the world ends, I’m hoping to build my own tablet computer.

A section of Singapore, with blue points being pictures taken by locals and red from tourists

The Geotaggers’ World Atlas maps are machine-generated maps of pictures taken by people in specific cities. Blue points indicate coordinates of photos taken by locals and red points are pictures snapped by tourists. Some very interesting map visualizations which show where the locals and tourists hang out more.

A fun, retro clip that shows you what you need in order to think and come up with ideas.
