1. Daniel Sinker, Columbia College prof and Punk Planet vet, is launching a product called Cell Stories. Do want. Can’t wait to hear more.

2. Daniel X. O’Neil of EveryBlock and Harper Reed of Threadless have launched CityPayments.org, a database of “all vendors, contracts, and payments that have been posted by the municipal government of the City of Chicago to the Vendor, Contract, and Payment Search lookup tool maintained by the Department of Procurement Services.”

The Goofy tool = FTW.
