So the new picapp dealy is just out.  I searched for Lance Armstrong, grabbed a photo I liked and inserted it into the body of my post.  Here it is…

Interesting app!  But, will it make images on posts less creative or diverse?

Not only a worthwhile distraction it can also act as an incredible motivator!  Every industry needs beautiful front men and women, Pezcyclingnews has awesome pics of the later.   

Maybe each month I’ll post my best of the Daily Distractions, or even better I’ll get my girlfriend to help too!

bike vs helicopter

leave a comment »

Sao Paulo hosted a competition to see what the best mode of transport is given the city’s crushing amount of traffic.  In an awesome win, the cyclist got there first.  He even beat a dude in a helicopter.  Full article here from PSFK.  Damn that’s wonderful!

Enjoy the Vid
