Quarterly.co is a subscription service for wonderful things. People can subscribe to a curator (such as me, Joel Johnson, Veronica Belmont, Tim Ferriss, Joshua Foer, Gretchen Rubin, and others) to receive a box of items selected by the curator.
My previous four mailings have included packages containing multiple items such as microscopes, Mexican jumping beans, magic tricks, a nice-smelling piece of wood that sells for $25,000 a pound, and berries that make any sour thing you eat taste sweet. I'm excited for my next mailing, which is a secret.
