I wish I had something insightful to say here. Unfortunately as a working mom, the majority of my time spent online involves Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer and YouTube construction videos. I also spend a lot of time looking at grpl.org. I do love the emotionally intelligent signage on Daniel Pink's site.
