Olivia Muus created the Tumblr Museum of Selfies. It is a collection of famous museum portraits who’s subjects look like they are in the process of taking a selfie. Muus describes the project like this:
This is a project that started when my friend aka. right hand and I went to the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen. I took a picture for fun and liked how this simple thing could change their character and give their facial expression a whole new meaning.
The daily routines and rituals of creative people is largely irrelevant to anything I will do or make, but it is still interesting to see how they decided to slice up their days. Click the image for the big version.
My wife texted me a picture of our DSLR’s viewfinder.
It think it’s pretty obvious we need a better way to share the photos from our good camera. I love the quality of the photos that come from that camera, but it is such a pain to transfer them to the computer.
I’ve tried an eyefi card, but it was too unreliable–only transferring some of the photos. Maybe that has changed since I tried it.
The extra levels for Monument Valley were an instabuy for me. Now I just need to find the time to properly enjoy them.
It was sad to see the game get so many one-star reviews from people upset at a $1.99 in-app purchase, but it looks like word got out and the real fans pushed the average rating back up to where it belongs.
First Drafts of History is a Tumblr that collects screen shots of the first versions of various Wikipedia entries.
Some of them are humorously incomplete and surprisingly accurate.

IndieWeb Camp Online looks awesome. I’ll do my best to be there.
My Mom shared a few photos from my Dad’s 22 years of military service. He was in the Navy and Wisconsin National Guard. He has retired from the military now after serving multiple tours of duty in Iraq.
Coming up with an idea for a successful startup used to be difficult. But then Uber came along. That made coming up with a startup ideas as simple as saying “Uber for [fill in the blank].” But you still had to come up with a clever name and flashy website before you could launch your dream startup.
Launchnik fixes that. It is like Uber for startup ideas. All you have to do is click ‘Go!’ and the site comes up with an Uber-based startup idea, a Web 2.0 company name, and a splash page.
After that, all you need to do is find a VC to fund it.
