Kuyam, the New Personal Organizer/Assistant

Doesn’t that just say it all? We’re all super busy and service providers haven’t all figured out how to fit in this complicated landscape. In comes kuyam! (which means “a meeting place where we can come together” in chumash in case you were wondering =] )

Much more than just a platform where you can schedule hair appointments, workouts and doctors’ visits, kuyam also lets you sync your calendar with friends and family. I don’t need to go on and on about the value of knowing when people are going to be free when you schedule activities to do together or schedule an appointment for them, do I?

As if that wasn’t enough, kuyam also helps you discover local non-profit and for-profit companies!

And one last cool thing? Their visuals are just adorable!

Did I mention Jackie drew me a caricature in 2 min flat?


Project Happy: today I saw a little girl on a scooter with her dad. It was so cute I couldn’t help but smile =]

Your Neighborhood Is a Thrift Shop–HipSwap Helps You Make the Best Of It

Who knows what wonderful treasures are hidden away in your neighbors’ homes! Antique dresses, accessories… even furniture! HipSwap’s mobile app shows you everything your neighbors or, if you choose, people all over the US (there’s even an iPhone case for sale in France!) have put on sale, and takes care of the shipping for you.

It’s like ebay, except easier. There’s no bidding, you can sign in with Facebook, and they deliver your lovely goods (in LA as of now, but they’re rolling out major cities this year so keep an eye on that website!)

Did I mention I really like their logo? And those shirts are amazingly soft! =D

One last thing I love about these guys: they give back.
