What's making me happy 2016-12-27
By Nat Welch
I’ve been slacking on the #happy posts. So I figure, let’s close out the year with one last post.
I really like the thoughts behind Better Things in Smaller Packages. I’ve been talking to @alexbaldwin about this for a while. He pointed me to Draft, a prolific email newsletter that @nickd runs. Dude makes money by showing that he’s an expert on a topic, and funnels that into design work for his consultancy.
List of 2016 box office number-one films in the United States was a fun read when trying to remember what films I saw this year.
Canada declaring internet essential for quality of life is super exciting. That being said, most first world countries are sitting around the same level of internet penetration. The quality of that internet is questionable still, and I doubt we’ll see that much improvement.
Do Not Eat, Touch, Or Even Inhale the Air Around the Manchineel Tree is probably one of the scarier plants I’ve ever heard of. The funny thing? A conversation about this led to a want to go to DisneyWorld.
I loved the work in Droneports Could Be the Train Stations of the 21st Century.
The Top 10 New York Dishes of 2016 by the New York Times was great. Ten places I want to eat in 2017.
Blade Runner 2049 trailer is out. Blade Runner is one of my all time favorite movies, so super excited.
I also read the first nine books of the Taltos series, which were all pretty good.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holidays. I’ll be getting my year in review out soon.
