gif of what a new idea looks like, and apps for capturing them



We were instantly smitten by this mesmerizing gif by Pataak that pushes gif-dom to new heights of loose abstraction. For us it combines the chic of polka-dots with the ephemeral way ideas come and go.  Strange magic.

Lately, we’ve been checking out apps and software for mapping our gazillions of ideas that often, once out of sight, go out-of-mind. There are quite a few. Our current favorite is Workflowy, a way to capture ideas quickly.
