Design dude, paul elkins, develops mobile units and other small scale vehicles. His latest development is a mobile homeless shelter which he designed as part of a competition asking folks to meet the demands of the rapidly growing homeless society -- a kind of substitute for the grocery cart situation. Elkins wanted his design construction to be a simple, light weight, water tight insulated box on wheels, built with an area for displaying and selling handmade wares. Depending on who wins today's presidential election, these may see a spike in sales in the next 12-24 months ;) Rate it here on the day of this Post. Finally, have a cool site?

Following Google's recent Panda and Penguin updates, Cool Site of the Day has seen its traffic drop by nearly 60%. A renewed emphasis on visitor participation and customization will, I hope, reverse the recent traffic decline. Plus, more and more, I'm posting links to the daily cool site throughout social media. I expect that an upcoming makeover by PaperThin.com will have a dramatic positive improvement on overall user experience and site metrics. Next steps
I heard my cousin raving about the Aviary photo editing tool (for web and mobile) and it reminded me that I actually used to USE Aviary. It is very cool and useful if you have a website or blog. You can embed the Aviary editor in your web or mobile app with just a few lines of code. View the web demo.
Just ordered a pair of ShowaFlops from my friends' new business--flip flops for a fungus-free and slip-free locker room experience. This is one of those products I was actually hoping someone would invent--I'm always slipping across the locker room (dirty) floor ☺ Perfect for public showers, gyms, steam rooms, dorms, camps, pools, locker rooms
