This just in from interactive journalism professor, Jeremy Caplan, – a curated list of small things that work well. First of all – Pinterest.com is a very cool website which allows anyone to create their own “pinboard” of interesting items, photos or factoids.
Secondly…I can think of quite a few items to add to this list here –
1) Babies wailing for a bottle
2) Chocolate covered espresso beans
4) Me on coffee or chocolate covered espresso beans
5) Popsicles on a hot day
6) Credit-card sized subway maps
7) Tom Cruise 15 years ago
