Friday List: On My Radar This Week

Booze Reviews:


  • I’m a big fan of the Nirvino community of cocktail reviewers.  Mine can be found at
  • 97 Bottles is a new brew review site.  I haven’t explored much yet, but it seems like a straightforward review site
  • Snooth offers a full community experience with links to online wine merchants to score the best prices

Design Contests:

  • Going with the Grain: design a flat pack object from one sheet of plywood and minimal hardware
  • Hugo Awards Logo: create the logo for the annual sci-fi lit awards.  Be recognized by nerds across the world!
  • The 4th Bin: design an e-waste bin to help NYC keep old computers off the curb

Stuff I don’t actually want, but briefly desired:

  • Snow White MacBook made me want to mod my MBPro. Garden of Eden or roasted pig with the apple in its mouth?
  • My own TV show or video podcast. I don’t want to be famous, but it might be the motivator to get me in better shape
  • Moleskin is now letting you customize your little black notebooks.
  • Skinny LaMinx offers a great view of her process creating cut paper designs, but who has time for that?
