CD-Player Handbag ☼ Floating Homes ☼ Weird Web Ideas
PLUS a very good guy who plays the piano to elephants in the jungle
Hi internet friends,
This week we wrapped design on the new Poolsuite web experience. It’s going to take a lil while in development, but I’m veryyyy excited to show it to you all.
The new site is the first step in turning Poolsuite into an organisation that many people can be a part of building. I spend a lot of my time thinking about what a ‘multiplayer brand’ looks like, asking myself questions like:
What does a brand look like when it’s being built by hundreds or thousands of contributors?
What kind of frameworks & structures need to be in place to decentralise a brand without affecting its output quality?
What incentives (other than money & building something hot) need to exist to bring the best builders & operators in the world in to work on Poolsuite projects?
I just think it’s 100x more exciting & interesting to build with a community vs. for a community. And I strongly believe we’ll be able to do incredible & eccentric things that other brands & businesses cannot if we get this right.
Onto this week’s links…

☼ Maybe the best thing I’ve seen this year… Paul Barton, once a convert pianist, now lives in the jungle of Thailand where he plays music to soothe & heal elephants that have faced trauma, injury, or loss. Here’s the full video from Paul’s YouTube channel. (Via Emily)
☼ Architect Daisuke Motogi’s 'Hackability of the Stool exhibition' is on show in London, featuring 100 ways to modify Alvar Aalto's iconic ‘Stool 60’. His 100 ideas include using the stool as a vinyl player, a toilet roll holder, and a marimba.
