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 Codecademy, the easiest way to learn to code.
- Reverb for Amazon Alexa
- Access Alexa from your Mac (iOS version available as well. I just started playing with this and I’m not even very familiar with Alexa yet and I’m really impressed.
- The Petter App - Keep track of your pet’s life.
- An iOS app that helps organize info about your pets, including contact info and records for vets, groomers, and pet sitters, plus notes, todo lists, and reminders synced to your calendar. Share the info easily with anyone who needs to know.
- Quick Peek
- I love this idea (tried to monkeywrench a similar system in Evernote years ago). Order QR-style stickers to put on boxes, photograph the contents of a box, then use the iOS app to associate the inventory in a searchable database.
- Songlink - Share music with everyone
- Instead of sharing a Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Google Music, or Deezer link, share the song with all the links and let people choose their preferred playback service.
- Data Selfie
- A Chrome extension that tracks you while you are on Facebook to show you your own data traces and reveal how machine learning algorithms use your data to gain insights about your personality.
