Author Kevin Kelly, the founding executive editor of Wired magazine and former editor/publisher of the Whole Earth Review, in partnership with Boing Boing co-founder Mark Frauenfelder and Claudia Dawson of Cool Tools have compiled Recommendo, a “best of” book containing 550 of their favorite things that they’ve suggested over the years through their free weekly email list, Recommendo.
Every week for the past two years we briefly recommend 6 things to our friends in free email newsletter called Recommendo. This book features the “best of” those recommendations. Sometimes we suggest tools, but most items aren’t tools. Rather we recommend stuff such as our favorite places to visit, things to watch or listen to, favorite stuff to eat, as well as tips for work or home, and techniques we’ve learned, quotes we like to remember, and so on. This autumn we collected, filtered and organized 550 of the best recommendations and put them into a book, called naturally enough, Recomendo.
