01. Singapore’s ‘Void Decks': Social Engineering Through Empty Space
“In Boston, apartments have roof decks; in Singapore, they have “void decks.” Imagine a building raised on pillars, so that there’s a large, empty space underneath. That space is the void deck – and most apartment buildings in Singapore have one.” (boston)

02. “Dead Drops” Preview (above)
“I am ‘injecting’ USB flash drives into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space. You are invited to go to these places (so far 5 in NYC) to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your favorite files and data. Each dead drop contains a readme.txt file explaining the project.” (arambartholl)

03. Diy Guitar Pick Punch
“You could buy a huge pile of picks for what it retails for, but then you wouldn’t get the satisfaction of creating your own custom picks out of flat pieces of plastic and other pick-worthy scraps you’ve got laying around.” (make)

04. Ben Gibbard Plays Radiohead Cover, New Song, Duets w/ Zooey Deschanel
“Performing at a benefit gig for Teen Feed in Seattle last night, Gibbard not only played a solo piano cover of Radiohead’s In Rainbows track “All I Need,” and brought his wife, She & Him’s Zooey Deschanel, onstage for a duet version of the Seekers’ 1964 hit “I’ll Never Find Another You,” but he previewed a brand new — possibly Death Cab for Cutie — song, as well.” (twentyfourbit)
