Open Street Map and Stamen Tiles for CartoDB in XYZ formation.

This post and all additional updates are now being maintained on Whiteboard. Partially for me, because I always forget where I put these, but mostly for you. As I always have to go looking for Stamen XYZ.png urls and had the hardest time finding Open Street Map tiles yesterday to use in CartoDB‘s Dashboard, so…

Stuff I think is awesome – Wild Mushrooms

When I was a kid, I recall family trips to the woods in order to go mushroom picking. I recall these memories very fondly, uncles, aunts, cousins, we’d walk though Northern European forests hunting the different types of edible mushrooms. And there was always an unspoken contest of sorts among all of us, those who managed to…

Got Bored, Made This – Avatar Hot or Not

I’m a firm believer in that sometimes it’s worthwhile to take some time, decompress and clear your head; and with my upcoming trip down to NOLA to meet and talk to the new Launch Pad Ignition class, and give a lecture at Tulane on how Mobile Innovation is Changing the face of Advertising (Slidehare coming…

Stuff I think is Awesome – Being Playful

I saw this guy’s photos about a month and a half ago on reddit, and instantaneously fell in love with the idea of playing with the moon. While most of us don’t have live in an area that allows us to experience the moon at an almost horizon like level, the photos here bring about the idea…

Stuff I think is Awesome – Life

Once in a while you see a photo that so fundamentally captures the human spirit that is just makes you smile. To me this picture of a woman at what looks to be a confessional is laughing along with the priest, but I’ll let the photo tell its own story. It’s not my role here…

Stuff I think is Awesome – What's Your Poison

Be it Cyanide, Arsenic, Hemlock, Belladonna, or others, these shot glasses take the trite “What’s your poison?” idea and actually make it amicable in a dark humor homicidal kind of way. The cork tops add that little bit of extra je ne sais quoi to each piece and truth is, I would love to have these in my…

Stuff I think is Awesome – The Bubble Tent

Not so long ago, but a while nonetheless, I started collecting photos of stuff I think is awesome, and made along with it a corresponding Facebook album which my 1000 or so fiends began to discuss a bit, and seeing as they liked it, and seeing as I’m staunchly private with my Facebook, figured I’d post it…

L'art pour L'art – Stakeholders Choice at the BA+S

As some of you know, and others I reckon don’t, I sit on the board of the Bowery Arts + Science, a wonderful little multi-arts nonprofit organization located down on the Bowery in NYC, and as such I thought I’d share with you a few thing that we’re working towards. Stakeholders Choice First and foremost…

My Life as a Zombie, the Series

Just wanted to share with you a project I’ve just about wrapped up and will be slowly putting up on YouTube as well as making an iTunes podcast of. It’s called “My Life as a Zombie”, and follows the inner thoughts of John, an English born human who one random night befell someone’s gnaw and…
