Every three months, I ship out a box of amazing physical products, along with two personal letters explaining everything: a physical letter and a video “letter.”
One of the latter is above. I do *not* plan on including these the blog, but giving an example is fun.
The theme of these quarterly mailings is obsession–I include the ideas and objects I can’t get out of my head.
Obsessions enter my life from all over the place. Currently, my gadgets and gear recommendations are coming from Cirque du Soleil performers, chess prodigies, Fortune 500 CEOs, and military snipers. It’s the randomness that makes it fun.
More than 1,500 people subscribe to these boxes through Quarterly.co. They are opening up 1,000 more spots for my next shipment, if of interest.
Here are the goodies from the latest:
1. Spectacle by David Rockwell with Bruce Mau ($49.95 retail, $33.94 Amazon)
