Cool Hunting is a site that's always worth checking out if you want to be one step ahead of the crowd. It's been running for quite a while, so is a bit oversubscribed, but you can pretty much guarantee the stuff you see on it will pitch up in magazines, newspapers and online not long after it appears there. It covers a broad mix of design, culture and technology, written in an engaging and informative way.
For a while now they've been featuring short video pieces to run parallel to some of their posts, mostly dealing with über hip music, technology and dance events; so it's great to see their latest video is all about a great big stinky flower that's just bloomed at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.
Check it out here.
And there's no denying it. The flower is indeed deeply cool.
You can also check out a rather nifty time lapse of it on the BBG site.
