Our group relies so heavily on technology to keep in touch. In fact, we regularly contact each other using every medium available - text, Gchat, Google Hangout, e-mail, etc. - and it really helps us keep connected.
That said, it’s kind of fun to reflect just how far technology has come (and in such a short frame of time). I recently found this YouTube channel that has quite a few odes to some of the more humble beginnings (The Joy of ASCII with Bob Ross is so wrong but The Wikipedia in the 80’s is pretty amazing).
If you find yourself cursing your “old” iPhone 4, these videos are definitely worth a watch.
We’re excited to share that our group was recently profiled in the November issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. We were counted as one of the many “Lean In Circles” inspired by the recent book and organization created by Sheryl Sandberg.
Dubbed, the “Tech Team” for both our background in web content as well as our adoption of tech to keep in close touch (as you can see from the picture), we were excited to be counted amidst groups of women committed to supporting and motivating one another.
LeanIn.org likes to ask, “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” We could answer that by saying, having a supportive group you can lean on when you lean in, is so important - no matter what your gender.
If you have 13 minutes to spare, you just might learn something with this crash course in women’s suffrage (brought to you by John Green + Co).
With love, from a producer:
I was so excited to see this lovely break-down explaining the difference between RGB and CMYK. Having worked for years in print in NYC explaining color is still always a teaching moment (sometime for me, as well, depending on WHAT we’re printing on - sometimes it isn’t just paper!). Short of it? If you can, always do a hard proof!
Hope sharing this diagram helps, but always happy to answer questions if you have them (and big accolades to devkimiko.tumblr.com for creating).
Victor Victoria (the movie these gifs are from) was written in 1982 - over 30 years ago. Amazing how things have changed and how much there is still needing to change.
