Why hello there. 

I'm Brad, a creative strategist living in Chicago. This is a steady stream of things I make, see and think.

Highlights from the worlds of advertising, startups, comedy, space, Internet hijinx, and my life in Chicago.

Do say hello.

Best New Apps: IFTTT
Since it launched in 2010, IFTTT (if this, then that”) has been building a Lego set made out of web companies. The free service, which until now has existed only on the web, automates tasks using public APIs from companies including Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, and Foursquare. I use IFTTT to save all my Instagram photos to Dropbox, and to note every time I check in at the gym, among other things. Now a new iOS app is making it easy to browse and enable the most popular “recipes” on the service — while also introducing recipes exclusive to the device that’s always at your side. 

IFTTT is one of those magical apps that solves half a dozen problems you didn’t realize you had within five minutes of digging in.
Highly recommended.   High-res
