The burning house

Foster Huntington’s project started with him posting a picture of the things he would take with him if his house were burning. He then reached out to friends and acquaintances asking them to submit a photo and list of items.

‘If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.’

What would you take with you?

Have a look at this brilliant idea here.

Visa digital wallet.

Finally there are rumblings that our payments and loyalty cards and such things will become digital. Why has it taken so long to do it?

I don’t want to carry around a bulky wallet with zillions of cards anymore. I want all my card numbers, details, receipts, loyalty programs securely stored digitally so that I can make transactions in-store effortlessly and have my history in a database somehwhere, so retailers can actually identify me rather than send me random meaningless offers based on my geography or one purchase I happened to make last week.
