Cool Shit Friday

Once every other Friday (probably) our studio sits down and shares some cool shit. Here are our latest takes.

The second round of Cool Shit Friday happened! If we can make it three this things should stick. Our team sits down every other Friday and has lunch together, sharing something wonderful, curious, or important that has been on our radar as of late. Everyone pays attentions and tries to absorb what’s going on. It’s good to share and it’s good to write, so this is a two birds with one stone situation.

Interesting read showing how an area once a beacon for Jazz, culture, and diversity has become distinctly the opposite. This shows parallels with the lack of diversity in the Tech scene.

Oldie but a goodie that a lot of the team had not seen. Renaissance paintings brought to life is a very haunting manner. Make sure to watch the whole thing. Art History nerd fun.
