My Favorite Internet Things of 2011
Tumblr: Goes without saying. Thanks for making 2011 more fun/interesting/thought provoking. Especially: Life Is Good, Yeah, Mr. White! Yeah, Science!, shortformblog, Helm’s Deep, Pop Culture Brain, Agent 3Z, Not Nadia, SB Nation, Chris Mohney, One Foot In The Grave, Section 9, Peter Feld, Apsies, Soup and Brooklyn Mutt.
Spotify: I know this sounds weird but Spotify helped me fall in love with music all over again. I love music. Always have. I grew up in a household that always had some form of music playing and we play music at home all the time. But Spotify helped me find new music, re-discover music from my past and allowed me get to know people I thought I already knew in a whole new way. IMHO absolutely worth the $9.99 a month for Spotify Premium.
Bonobos: My brother-in-law introduced me to Bonobos earlier this year. Have not been to a brick-and-mortar clothing store since. Terrific site, exceptional customer service and an irreverence that makes buying clothes fun instead of horrifically boring. And, of course, amazing pants.
Fitocracy: The company I love so much I became a Board Advisor. These guys have found a way to make working out fun, exciting and social. I lost 44 pounds this year and Fitocracy was key. We have big things planned for Fitocracy in 2012 so sign up and get moving! Feel free to ping me for an invite code.
