Utility. Beauty. Purpose. I haven’t written an investment paper for Thread International yet but I will after Flexsys and Blossom. Upcycled materials is a industry and process I’ve been interested in for a while. Thread international caught my attention because their product is a cradle to cradle item, not only upcyclying “waste” which doesn’t actually exist but improving the quality of life, communities and the people Western consumption affects. I think about it a lot but I’ve only had one […]
One of my favorite magazines is providing an opportunity for people to invest in it through a platform called Micro Ventures. I came across Darling a few years ago when I worked at PCC and have been watching them ever since. What I fell in love with was their mission statement and CEO. The product from there was a given. The content, the aesthetics, even the material/ tactile experience you had holding it. I couldn’t be happier or more excited for them. I […]

I didn’t mention it but at one point while walking through boat I wondered if a friend who will be running the company had consider the possibility of internal diagnostics and hacking. He’s not a tech person and I didn’t bring it up because I didn’t want to dampen the mood. But when it comes to our country, companies and crews, including food, the way feed our country could become a national security issue. Last week friends christened their new factory […]

Tympanic membrane interface to protect the brain and spinal cord by way of the ears. Essentially it would work like an interface retina; a false retina or contact lens to interact with the world and protect the original from being misused. But rather than focus on the eye my interest is to protect the brain and spinal cord by way of your ears. What the article didn’t mention is that the tympanic membrane is essentially how we hear or receive sound; […]
The Gentleman’s Emoji Set I like the idea of Kimoji’s (animated emojis that move) but have yet to find one that I would use. I wanted something more refined- poised and subtle yet distinctive and sure. I often send mono answers to friends; ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘?’. I would buy a emoji set like this. *Adjusts neck tie* I’m sure.
