At BYO we find ourselves with a seemingly-permanent wall of tabs in our browsers, each with an inspiring and cool project inside. We decided to turn this obsession into a public service - sharing inspiring projects with our ever-expanding community of readers, and giving them guidance around how to contribute.

Everyday we find projects that are making the world a better place. So we created a place to share that work with others, hoping to increase the impact of the featured projects and encourage others to find their own ways to make a difference.

We also wanted to examine each of these projects through the same lens, creating a meaningful context and giving us the ability to compare projects. For us that lens had to do with the work that we do, so we curate projects that relate to the fields of creative problem solving, experience design, technology, and community engagement.

Along with our growing community of readers, we’ve started to develop a completely different way of looking at the world that has simultaneously changed our perception of the projects in our field as well as provided ongoing moments of inspiration. We believe that it is a human instinct to want to make the world a better place. Our primary goal is give our audience a framework within which to exercise that instinct, and a space where they can share their findings.
