Carry-on 2.0 Bag

PRE-SALE In September 2013, we launched the original Carry-on. It raised over $340,000 in 30 days (more than 11x our original goal). It was a Kickstarter Staff Pick. And at the time, it was the most-funded bag in Kickstarter history. Better than that? It was shipped on-time. We had an incredible group of backers doing incredible things, and as they travelled the world doing those things, they sent us feedback. We’re building a company that makes gear for real life. Naturally, the development process for the Carry-on 2.0 looked something like this: 10,000+ emails  2+ years of testing  Uncountable late-night Skype calls with dodgy connections 3,278,453,278 team ‘debates’  1 black eye (don’t ask) In summary: we listened, we questioned, we politely disagreed with each other, we thanked our users profusely.

Donnacha Costello – Ten Years Later

Donnacha Costello

Donnacha Costello’s ‘Color Series’ first debuted on his own label ‘Minimise’ in 2004 and over the next year or so, evolved into ten releases which to this day remain some of my favourite vinyl records. With influences ranging from Aphex Twin, Plastikman, Autechre, Model 500 and Farley Jackmaster Funk, Donnacha reached into new territory with this series, combining his love of synths, techno music and in many instances, ambient music, to produce a collectable and sought after series of vinyl, and a defining style of music for many of today’s producers.

A fairly quick and dirty map of the roadtrip to and from Black Rock City this summer. I’ll try to improve this over the next few days, ideally at least changing the color!

Why NORAD tracks Santa

One morning that December, U.S. Air Force Col. Harry Shoup, the director of operations at CONAD, the Continental Air Defense Command — NORAD’s predecessor — got a phone call at his Colorado Springs, Colo., office. This was no laughing matter. The call had come in on one of the top secret lines inside CONAD that only rang in the case of a crisis.

Grabbing the phone, Shoup must have expected the worst. Instead, a tiny voice asked, “Is this Santa Claus?

A Christmas tradition is born on the United States strategic defense nuclear hotline.
