Wordless Wednesday: Reality Check

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Do you remember Wordless Wednesday?

It was a thing on many blogs from around 2008 to 2011.

I’m feeling nostalgic, so I thought I’d bring it back — occasionally.

WW: Last Minute Gifts

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

As some of you know it’s also Hanukkah, so I thought I would share this Kosher ham with you—a real faux pas that actually happened.

Next is a great list of sites for last minute shopping.

And my gift to you is a great way to kill time playing Rock-Paper-Scissors against a computer. I thought you could try it out next week.

Lastly, a bit of special bling the lady in your life won’t mind at all being late.

WW: Amazing, Fun Productivity Gifts

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

IdeaPaint is the perfect gift for your team, your kids (teens to toddlers), yourself or anyone with a smooth surface that’s just sitting there. And you can pair it with magnetic paint for a truly useful fun result.

I found the ultimate gift for your favorite gadget nut or workaholic at Mashable, but you’ll have to wrap an IOU, because the EXOdesk isn’t actually available until next year. But I doubt they will mind waiting for a tabletop computer with 40 inches of high def space where you manipulate virtual objects by touching and dragging them around. It’s only $1,299, which may sound pricey, but is downright reasonable when compared to Microsoft Surface 2.0 at nine grand.

WW: Christmas Shopping 2: Gifts for the Humanitarian and the Hedonist

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Here are wonderful suggestions for unusual gifts for your mensch friends that also give to others, such as a flock of chickens for a needy family, just $30; $29 buys a girl her school uniform; $69 can start a female entrepreneur in the sewing business; and, if you’re feeling very generous, you can stock a fish pond and teach a man to fish for just $300.

For the ‘it’s all about me’ crowd you’ll find gifts at all levels in this year’s Neiman Marcus Fantasy Catalog, but hurry, the best stuff is going fast. Ten pewter-color Ferraris (luggage set matching the interior included) at $395,000 each sold out within 50 minutes.

WW: Christmas Shopping 1

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

It’s that time of the year again; time to find that unique present for the special people in your world, whether business or personal. So, in the interests of lending a helping hand, I thought that over the next four Wednesdays I’d offer up some unique presents for boss, colleagues and other business connections as well as loved ones.

From Business Week comes 31 gift ideas to fit every pocketbook; prices range from as low as $11.50

to $3.5 million (in case your company went public or was acquired).

But if you don’t care to bid, here is an idea that, while still impressive, is far more affordable at a paltry $229,000.

WW: Got Milk?

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

What do you get when a bichemist is also a fashion designer?

The first truly sustainable fabric that looks great and doesn’t require 10,000 liters of water to make two pounds of fabric like cotton.

WW: Objective History

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Perhaps today WW should stand for Wednesday w/ Words because there are a few.

Imagine 100 objects that are said to depict the entire history of our world, such as this carving from 11,000 years ago.


The words explaining the British Museum project are here.

A slide show of ten of the objects is here.

The stories, as told in the BBC radio series, are here (by far the most captivating choice).

WW:the Future is a Lake (Not a River)

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011


River economies (above) have materials, energy, and value run through communities, leaving little value behind. Lake economies (below) pool resources and value locally for longer lingering value and impact.

Join me tomorrow and meet the entrepreneur at the forefront of lake formation.
