Favorite Discoveries of 2011

With the year at a close, here’s my list of the favorite things I discovered in 2011.

  • ifttt.com and Evernote. The best way I’ve seen to create a searchable repository of your “Likes”, “Faves”, “Reblogs”, and “Stars”.
  • Multigrain Tostitos Scoops. best chip on the market.
  • Hypercritical, Back to Work, and The Incomparable podcasts. These podcasts have introduced me to new ideas, reinforced and also debunked long held opinions, and made me a fan of the medium.
  • Frozen Butterbeer. Only available at Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. I need to learn to make this at home.
  • Nylabone and Kong dog toys. Especially the durable toys for active chewers.
  • Ender’s Game. I had never read it. I might just re-read it in a couple of months.
  • AppleTV Airplay. THIS. more of this, lots more.
  • Clay Christensen’s lecture on successful innovation. He gave it at an IT Symposium in October and it is the best hour long video I’ve watched all year. Changed how I think. Watch it here.
  • Keurig. I’m not a coffee snob, so it’s perfect for me.
  • Married Life. So great. Not always easy.
