My New Favorite T-shirt Place

I’ve always been a big t-shirt fan, from my high school days wearing my favorite concert T, to my boat load of graphic T’s from Urban Outfitters. However, there seems to be a drought lately, at least in my opinion, of good sources of graphic T’s.

Well, I ran across the following site and must say they have the coolest t-shirts around.

Go and check out the T’s, or better yet, buy a few, from Design by Humans. You won’t be disappointed.

Oh, and if you have any sources of your own, please don’t hesitate to share!

Frank Lloyd Wright Lego Sets

I loved Legos as a kid and anxiously await my two your old son’s introduction to them as well (maybe more for my enjoyment than his).

Regardless I will certainly be buying him the following sets when he’s ready.

Moleskine and good design

adc_moleskine

So who doesn’t love Moleskine and good design?

Well, here’s the best of both worlds. Here the scoop straight from the horse’s mouth…

“This exclusive two-volume set showcases groundbreaking visual media and design from winners of the 2008 ADC Young Guns competition, plus the finalists of The Undiscovered Letter, a creative challenge envisioning the 27th letter of the alphabet.”

I’m about to purchase my set right now!

This aint your daddy’s office space!

So somewhat related to my previous post regarding environmental influence on creativity, This Aint No Disco is a cool site dedicated to featuring unique and inspiring workplaces.

Go and take a visit and enjoy (or even drool over) some of the workplaces listed.

Can your physical environment influence creativity?

I’ve always hated fluorescent lighting, even to the point of climbing on a chair at work to twist the bulbs until they turned off. Is there a correlation between your physical workplace, or any environment for that matter, and your level of creativity? I’ve always felt so and a recent article over at Scientific American spends some time looking at the theory.

So what’s your take? Does it matter if your working in a government-like building dressed in gray and flooded in fluorescence, or a swank and colorful loft soaked in incandescence and adorned with bean bags?

Firefox 3.5

So the nice people at Mozilla are renaming Firefox 3.1 (beta 3) to 3.5, maybe due to the absolute avalanche of newly supported features. Go have a look for yourself. I personally am stoked, espcially about the downloadable font CSS2 support!

Mobbler no longer

Mobbler Screenshots

Well, according to a recent post on Last.fm’s blog, one my favorite S60 app is going bye-bye. Yes, Mobbler, along with all other 3rd party Last.fm apps, are being silenced. This is a sad day indeed : (

It has yet to be seen whether or not existing apps will continue to work, or if this effort is designed to thwart future app development and consumer downloads. Let’s hope it’s the latter.
