By Kevin Kelly, one of the creator’s of the 70’s visionary Whole Earth Catalog, Cool Tool’s emulates the original Whole Earthg format in a slightly more mercenary and 2014 fashion…for example, having phone scannable bar codes to buy stuff and using the word “curated”.
Nevertheless, it IS a curated selection of the best tools available for individuals and small groups from hand tools, maps, how-to books, and vehicles, software, specialized devices, gizmos, websites: and anything useful.
Contributors write their experiences of a product with extensive info/excerpts/pictures of it. So you can learn A LOT just reading it, and it is a wonderful sparker of ideas for the improviser.
