The new and World of Swiss

Yesterday, the new and World of Swiss websites have been launched. Browse around, the experience is exceptional.

The websites were designed and developed over the course of 500 days. Yep, that’s not a typo, the entire process took about a year and a half. You have to admire the amount of planning, expertise and commitment that goes into a project like this, it is quite remarkable. So, a huge thumbs up from me to the guys over at Hinderling Volkart for delivering.

A Soft Murmur

Tried A Soft Murmur today while working and I’m liking it so far. Music is often too distracting for me, so having some ambient sounds in the background seems a good alternative. It even has some nifty tools, like the timer and the alarm, which could be useful to me, since I am a fan of the Pomodoro Technique.

Money as a side effect

Loving this post on work and money I found via Josh. Your view can get distorted if you don’t keep reminding yourself of what’s really important.

We do so many things for the money. It’s so deeply built into our culture that it takes a real effort to realize it’s the reason behind so many of our actions.

But I find it healthy to make sure they are just side effects of doing good work, or living a good life.
