Almanac

Welcome to my Almanac(1)According to Google, an almanac is “A handbook, typically published annually, containing information of general interest or on a sport or pastime.” I think that fits. I got the almanac idea from Mark Hurst who used to put together Uncle Mark’s Gift Guide and Almanac. of Cool Tools(2)A Cool Tool is anything that is tried and true to make your life better. Kevin Kelly coined the term on his Cool Tools website that is a more modern and digital version of the Whole Earth Catalog. The Whole Earth Catalog might have the best motto ever — Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish which Steve Jobs quote in his famous Stanford Commencement Address.. This is a place where I want to store all the cool things that I’ve found over the years and put them in one place. In 2006 I collected my thoughts on a website. However, over time, the website turned into more of a blog and now I need a new place to store my ideas.

I’ve broken the Almanac into a number of sections.
