A Thousand Awesome Things... Feel Good Blog

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, June 30, 2009

That warm, fuzzy feeling...on the Net. I'm Fred Fishkin with Technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. 1000 Awesome Things is the name of a Blog created by Neil Pasricha...and the idea...is to let people share the kinds of things that make them feel good...


"So a thousand awesome things dot com is meant to be the two or three minutes in your day wher eyou kind of get to forget how heavy the news is right now and talk about wearing underwear just out of the dryer and talk about hitting green lights on your way home from work."

The posts go on and on...


"Some people write in and say how about the smell of gasoline. How about playing with a baby and not having to change its diaper. How about bakery air. When you walk into a bakery and you get that warm front of croissants in your face."


The site has attracted millions of hits...won a Webby Award....and Pasricha now has a book deal . That should make him feel pretty good. The site is the numeral 1000awsomethings.com. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
