Splendid Sundays Volume 4Sunday, August 02, 2009
A handful of splendid finds and interesting tidbits from around the world wide web:
*In an effort to spread a little cheer when many people seem to carry such a glum outlook on life, two ladies are running The Bright Side Project. Under the tagline Sunshine Delivered Daily, seven days a week including holidays, they give away something delightful (currently on the list: the entire Reign collection from Smashbox Cosmetics). I am obsessed with their concept and know they are going to be huge (much more so than they already are). You can get your daily dose of sunshine here.
*Sean Low's last day as President of Preston Bailey Design, Inc was this past week and his new company, The Business of Being Creative begins full time tomorrow. If you're considering hiring a business consultant, spend your money on the best. You can read Sean's blog here (this is a link to the new one) and follow him on Twitter here.
*Read Write Web had an interesting post this week about how Sony chose to capitalize on the Wedding Entrance Dance on YouTube instead of demanding it be removed due to copyright violation of the unlicensed song that was used. Kudos to Sony for "getting it" and for using social media well.
*Here is a thoughtful and thought-provoking article on real priorities over on the 43 Folders blog. I loved this quote: "You can’t “prioritize” a list of 20 tasks any more than you can "uniqueify" 20 objects by “uniqueness,” or “pregnantize” 20 women by “pregnantness.” Each of those words means something." Thanks to Suzanne for sending the article my way.
Do you have any splendid finds to share?
