Wallaby , which is launching its beta today, reminds me a bit of banking startup Simple. Just like Simple automatically manages your finances for you and automatically shuffles your money between the most lucrative debit and savings accounts, Wallaby combines all of your existing credit cards onto one card and then decides which of your credit card accounts to route your transactions to based on where you can get the most frequent flyer miles or cashback bonuses. Wallaby, which is backed MuckerLab , an accelerator in Santa Monica, CA, provides you with a single physical credit card and digital wallet. First you register all your physical cards with Wallaby and then, when you want to pay for gas, for example, it will automatically use the card that gives you triple miles for gas purchases.

You have a busy life and a to-do list a mile long. Unfortunately simply adding a new task to your to-do list doesn't actually mean it'll get done. Wouldn't it be nice if you could get out in front of your to-dos at work and at home, always know what's on your plate, and even have a little time to think about how you can work smarter instead of slaving away every day? You can, and it's easy to do: you just need to incorporate a weekly review into your schedule. What Is a Weekly Review? Simply put, the weekly review is a set-aside period every week, usually an hour or two, where you dedicate yourself to getting organized for the week ahead and ensure that nothing is slipping through the cracks.
Welcome to the world of Bucket Drumming, a 20th and a 21st century urban manifestation of an age old phenomenon. After all, street musicians have been around for thousands of years, and down through history, we percussionists have selected materials and made instruments from what was available in their our immediate surroundings. And one thing we definitely have on hand, in this age of petroleum products, is plastic containers.. Not everyone loves bucket drumming, however. In fact, many people find it obnoxious. . Let's face it, most examples of bucket drumming nowadays are show-offy, "look-at-me!"

No, the cake does not look like this. This would be too big to eat. And too lava-y. So, it’s been awhile since I wrote my Beginner’s Guide to Minecraft , the current indie -darling of the Internet.
Crafting is the essence of Minecraft. This guide provides the basics of crafting and durability, along with a crafting recipe of every craftable item in the game. Where Can I Discover Recipes? Crafting recipes in Minecraft are simply looked up on websites like this one. You typically don't "discover" recipes by guessing, and there is nowhere in the game that will list them for you. For easy reference, it will help to keep a web browser open to Minecraftopia for crafting recipes and item information.

This has been coming for a while… I’ve danced around the issue in the past. But a recent brilliant post entitled— The Short Sweet Guide to Being Fucking Awesome —by my friend Julien Smith , the co-author of New York Times bestselling Trust Agents , made me revisit it and explore it on a deeper level. It’s about language, transparency, attention and connection.

Media agencies want to ensure that their ads are only seen in the best light… But a lot of times, the networks they use to distribute those ads don’t do a good job of distinguishing between good content or bad content, or where an ad appears. That’s why video ad startup TubeMogul has opened up a new page that will let anyone — whether it be a brand, an agency, a publisher, or merely a curious observer — scan a URL and see how it ranks in terms of brand safety. That page, based on TubeMogul’s PageSafe technology, is a powerful tool to show off what viewers really see and what brand associations they’re getting when ads run against certain content. Brand safety isn’t a new issue in online advertising. Several ad networks have sought to tackle the issue over the years — and yet, ads still run up against objectionable content and auto-load in spots where viewers never see them.
