The ODBCoin is the only cryptocurrency with ‘Soul’.
An appreciation of Nirvana’s 1991 album, “Nevermind”. Still one of the best albums of all time. 👶
Admittedly I am biased towards the subject matter, but I am genuinely enjoying the Touchstones series from The New Yorker.
Conserve the sound is an archive for endangered sounds.
I went for the 56k modem. I was not disappointed.

Kong3D is brilliant. 🦍
If King Kong was a business leader in Blade Runner this would be his logo.
Deep-Sea fisherman Roman Fedortsov finds weird stuff in the deep.
These images explain why we focus on space and not the depths of the ocean. I'd rather deal with a Xenomorph than some of these fish.
Hypnotizing 3D animations.
DailyCube has hand drawn geometric gifs...and my heart. 🔲

Away From Keyboard (AFK).
AFK will track your mouse and keyboard activity and let you know when you should take a break and do...sumthin' else.
DrawKit has beautiful free illustrations. ✏️
'nuff said. They had me at illustrations because I read everything backwards.
Just a bunch of tools for makers. Everything from startups to design is covered.

Neve is a very nice theme built for the next stage of the WordPress evolution.
🧠 Tech Minded
HyperSurfaces turns any surface into a user interface using vibration sensors and AI. 👌

At the very least, a great way to appear smart at parties.

The Adventure of Detective Moustachio is a scrolling 80s game for mobile. It has many dashes of noir...highly recommended. 🕵️♀️

"You like forwarding. You’ve got a great big send button there where most people just have a heart."
"You know how to subscribe, don’t you Steve? You just click here, and…sign up."
I could have tried to force the line from Casablanca in there at the end. But...is it noir? I seem to remember it being a controversial subject and who wants to go down that road at the end of a newsletter? Not I.
That's all the links I have for ye,
Have a great week,
