NYC monochrome!

I'm no New Yorker but I love this timelapse video by Geoff Tompkinson.

nice coloring, but it's all touristy locations and traffic - I wanted it to go thru some of the better looking neighborhoods, like LES, Harlem, East and West Villages, etc.

When asked whether she has any regrets, Steinem says: “Well, actually it’s not so much what I would have done differently. It’s that I would have done it much faster.”
Gloria Steinem occupies a singular place in American culture as the very face of feminism.

The Legend of the Starry Skies

I loved this video of s short book made with Paper, the iPad app! It was written by a 14-year-old boy and loosely based on Super Mario Galaxy (a classic of its own).

Win 50,000 Frequent Flyer Miles!

I'm giving away 50,000 Rapid Rewards points (technically, two plane tickets anywhere on the Southwest network). No catch, just comment to win. 

I don't usually travel with Southwest - no disrespect intended, it just doesn't meet my needs - so I'm giving away the points I'll get from a new credit card signup. More details on the Frequent Flyer Challenge, as well as news on a great new book (not mine!) and WDS 2014 tickets are in this post.

For my 6 year travel anniversary, I've compiled a bunch of questions from readers into a long FAQ post. How I fund my travels and lifestyle, what bag I use and more, after the jump. Thanks for reading, and here's to more years of great discoveries and delicious food.

How to Be Prolific
By HANS-ULRICH OBRIST

This idea that every day could be the last day is the source of it all, because then one has to do it all on that one day. I had a near-death experience when I was 7, and it’s all got to do with that. That was the trigger for this urgency. I’m completely convinced of that.

Introduction
I publish The Art of Non-Conformity blog and travel around the world meeting fun people.

I also founded the Travel Hacking Cartel and UnconventionalGuides.com, two businesses that help people see the world on their own terms. 

My latest book, THE $100 STARTUP, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller.

I like coffee, running, writing, and wandering.
