Web Excursions are select bookmarks from my travels around the interwebs, because I'm always thinking about you while discovering other people's cool stuff. You mean that much to me. You can see all of my (public) bookmarks on Pinboard, and visit the bookmarks archive for curated lists across the last few years.
Web excursions brought to you in partnership with MindMeister, the best collaborative mind mapping software out there.
- If you haven’t gone the Leap route, here’s a touch-free controller for Mac that uses your built-in camera to allow gesture-based control of iTunes and Spotify, among others.
- SmartIcons - Smart SVG icon system
- A huge collection of web-ready icons that updates constantly. There’s a great variety in there, and plans start at $0.
- A great collection of themes for Sublime Text. The coolest part is the plugin (available through Package Control) that lets you flip through and preview the available themes in the current view using the command palette, and install/enable them without constantly visiting the preferences menu or editing the JSON config.
- Sunrise Meet
- A third-party keyboard (iOS link, available for Android as well) which lets you schedule one-to-one meetings with invites and calendar integration from any app. For me—someone who only meets with one person at a time anyway—this is awesome.
- IFTTT Apps for Automatic
- Automatic (the smart assistant for your car) has introduced a bunch of app integrations, but the most intruiguing to me are the IFTTT triggers. I can automate events on my iPhone and connected devices based on speed, error codes, or even when I’m starting or ending a drive. Neat.
