Daily Show book list

Image for Daily Show book list

I watch the Daily Show, well, just about daily. And I often see an author or artist interviewed, and think "Man, I really want to read/watch/experience that." I was trying to find a particular book I'd seen featured a few weeks ago, and a very simple Google search revealed

And while it's not the most beautiful site ever, it does have the information I need, with much less scrolling around on Comedy Central's website.

SmartyPins is a game that utilizes Google Maps and trivia. How it works: Choose a category, and read the question, and drop the pin on the correct geographic location. The closer you are the better, because you will be deducted for every “mile” off. Run out of miles and it’s game over. But don’t worry, you can always try again. And again and again.

Categories include Arts & Culture, Science & Geography, Sports & Games, Entertainment and History & Current Events. Bonus: When you get answers correct, the game includes cute messages of encouragement and funny GIFs like the Google Streetview guy dancing in a banana suit.

OhLife in a nutshell is your email diary. 

Sign up, and choose the days you want OhLife to email you. The emails will ask you about your day, and prompt you to write. When you reply, OhLife automatically saves and organizes what you wrote. It's not really a social network or a blog, but a private, and an interesting way to record your life.


Get your sleep schedule back on track

Getting back to your regularly scheduled life after a long weekend can be tricky. (Happy Monday everyone!)

Next time try using to help figure out when you should be falling asleep so that you can wake up at the right time, feeling refreshed. Sleepy Time calculates the time based on 90-minute REM sleep cycles and helps you wake up in between them so that you don't feel groggy. 

And don't forget that the average adult takes 14 minutes or so to fall asleep, so do plan accordingly.

Agoraphobics welcome.

Want to go out, but need some alone time? Avoid Humans is a web-based app that analyzes check-data from FourSquare and Instagram and determines the areas in your place with “the least amount of humans.”The app is color coded to indicate the current level of check-ins/human presence and is divided into four categories: nightlife, food, coffee and refuge. 

No word on how to avoid crowded places with bad WiFi reception.
