These my micropostings and bookmarks – December 27th through January 6th:
- Internet Retailing – recruitment – One sales manager and two editors please.
- Mind bites – a set on Flickr – Neat collection of illustrated aporisms and research findings – all dying to be powerpointed, but check the copyright since most are fully reserved. Pity.
- Mini / Pocket Journals by BookFactory – Lovely site – combining manufacturing with stationery fetish.
Want custom notebooks or lab/engineering/record books? With personal imprint?
European number – London 0208 – raises my hopes for new stationery in 2009…
- The Green Microgym – Portland, Oregon, USA – Human and Solar Powered – Adam Boesel – Personal Training – This is a great conjunction of a thought experiment ("why don't you power the lights while you pedal the exercise bike") with newly-available working technology with a business model (rewarding gym members with a variant on a loyalty card – the "Burn and Earn" card – which offers credits in return for hours, wattage etc).
This will become the standard for all gyms – especially once costs reduce. Indeed, the cyclical capital refresh costs in modern chains are so high that this could even be affordable now.
- "In Utero" Tweeting?? [Gift Guide for the Twitter addict – The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW)] – Scroll to the pregnancy-belt picture and the "For Baby" title…
In utero tweeting – Priceless
