Monday Rundown: Watches Cyclists Nearly Die
It’s Monday, and if you’re new to Quarterlife Man (welcome), you’re new to the Monday Rundown. The Monday Rundown is a compendium of randomness compiled over the course of each week. Enjoy…
––From the Not-Too-Distant Future
Each WikiCell has a nutritional skin held together by healthy ions like calcium. Think about the skin of a grape and how it protects the grape itself. This is how a WikiCell works. This soft skin may be comprised primarily of small particles of chocolate, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, or many other natural substances with delicious taste and often useful nutrients. Inside the skin may be liquid fruit juice, or thick pudding.[/box_dark]
All of the sudden, the estimated 12% of our waste from plastics doesn’t seem so necessary after all. This takes sustainability and injects it with steroids. It also reminds me of those sorbet-in-fruit desserts that are served on Palm Beach:
––A neat concept, SkillCloud:
During the recent Reinvent Business hackathon, Design Icon (a team in the hackathon) came up with a tool they call Skillcloud: a social network-like platform that provides an avenue for employees to lay out all of their interests, abilities, and hobbies outside of the office to their workplace.
From Co.EXIST: “Once companies know that there is a passionate group of musicians or artists in their midst, they could build teams that generate fresh ideas.”
We’ve all been in positions where we’ve felt underutilized and I think this is a great solution to that problem. Your boss won’t likely have time to learn that you love photography outside of Skillcloud, but once they do, it opens up the possibility to work more creatively or on other projects. #genius
––College Classes That Would Actually Prepare You For Real Life

––Practice Safe Cycling…
This is the trailer for a film called Line of Sight. It’s crazy/nuts/awesome:
[box_light]Line Of Sight is a rare view into underground bicycle messenger racing which has become a global phenomenon. For over a decade Lucas Brunelle has been riding with the fastest, most skilled urban cyclists around the world while capturing all the action with his customized helmet cameras to bring you along for the ride.
DVD available at: lucasbrunelle.com
“Lucas Brunelle goes for it. If you want to see what it’s like to play a live game of ‘frogger’, on a bike, with only one life, check out Line Of Sight.” – Mat Hoffman[/box_light]
––Finally: A Tentpole Solution
YES. For those of us that hate those dreaded tentpoles, I present… ‘The Cave’ (from Heimplanet). It’s a tent with no poles. Instead, this shelter deploys an inflatable diamond grid–a geodesic dome–to support the structure:
[box_success]Thanks for reading. Check back next Monday for more of the Rundown and, as always, tweet us (@QuarterlifeMan) if you have any suggestions![/box_success]
