Sumally

Sumally com

Sumally has been described as the Pinterest of Japan. I don’t actually agree, because they’ve done a remarkably good job separating items into Wants and Haves. A secretly powerful tool to turn commerce on shortly.

After using it for a few days, it seems it’s the place where the most influential Japanese designers, cultural icons and locals are sharing objects of fascination in their life. The caliber of curation happening here is pretty high. Check it out, I’ll be watching this one.

Nike Field

Nike Field is a nice little experiment promoting the Fuel Band. Check it out. It’s like having Ableton Live built into your browser. Go full screen and start hitting your keys! (Make sure your sound is on).

Beaker Magazine

Beakermag

I see good things in the future for Amrit Richmond founder of Beaker Magazine.

In her own words– Beaker is a business and culture magazine for the idea generation.

Beaker aims to equip entrepreneurs, technologists and executives to act on their ideas while navigating between the stages of idea to product, product to market, and the first few years of a startup. We create and curate articles on early stage operations, startup culture and technology trends from around the world.

A welcome resource on the web, surely.

Cowbird

Cowbird

My friend Jonathan Harris never ceases to amaze me. He’s one of the most thoughtful and talented people in the world. His latest project Cowbird has an audacious goal- in his word, to become the public library of human experience, kind of like a Wikipedia for real life (but much more beautiful).

How are they going to get there? They’re pioneering a new form of participatory journalism rooted in simple human stories.

occupy

The site is organized into Sagas, Stories and Diaries, and the slogan says it best: To be a witness to life.

Above is the Saga of Occupy Wall Street, and specifically Jonathan’s story about being arrested at Occupy Oakland.

It’s easy to submit and organize your own story or saga.  They can be in any form of media.  On the site now the mix and sheer breadth of documented experiences is fascinating to see.

Jonathan

Within the profile of a user, you can see that a specific person’s (in this case Jonathan’s) appearances in different sagas, their own stories, and their relationships.  It’s a little social-network like, but it’s what happens in your life that ties you to other people.

The organization is incredible, and I would expect nothing less from Jonathan!

Check it out and share your own story!
