Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Chacho Puebla's grandmother never gave him advice regarding social media etiquette, but he loves her anyway. 

The Madrid-based designer writes that as he gets older, he thinks about the advice he'll give to his grandchildren. 

"My three grandmothers were always giving me sermons instead of tips," he writes. "'Be careful with your money,' 'Don't get involved with that girl,' 'Save,' 'Get a haircut, you look like a hippie,' and all those classic parent, grandparent comments.'"

He's hoping his words of wisdom will be a little more relevant. 

His latest project -- a collaboration with his sister and photographer named Lula -- is a series of advice he wishes he'd been given by his grandmother, with his grandmother's sister as the subject.  

See more advice on his website.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
