MyTown: Check-in Game

Very interesting how some services are gaining traction that essentially make a "game" out of "checking into" real places, like restaurants, salons, etc. MyTown is one such game. I'm not sure how it all works yet. I hope to check it out soon.

Booyah! MyTown hits 1 million users before Foursquare or Gowalla

Kwedit: Do You Promise To Pay?

This is a very serious player and awesome concept in the online payment industry. I think these people have a winning concept. I really like the fact anyone can make their payments by going to a 7-11, mailing it in, or via the "pass the duck" feature.

Practice Storytelling

This is an awesome tool to get kids to be creative with telling stories. It is a set of cards that come in two types. You pull one card of each type. The first is a character, while the second is a situation. For example, "a cashier at a dollar store" may be the first card, and "who is afraid of getting old" is the second card. The person then proceeds to tell the story based on this character and situation. Two rules: the character must change in some way from beginning to end. The character must never die.
