Last week, I read Jade’s blog on constraints and creativity which really got me thinking about how this principle applies to the work we do here.  How do we turn business objectives into stuff.  Thus, a challenge was born. Given my unabashed love for football, I wasn’t ready for the season to end on Sunday....
Last Tuesday, Foursquare launched its second iOS app—Foursquare for Business.  Originally, the Foursquare app is used to “check-in” at various places and collect points, prizes and badges—you can even get coupons!  Although it’s gained respectable popularity since its 2009 launch, the privately-owned company hasn’t generated as much revenue as  they’d desired. The Foursquare for Business...
Jade has had Fiction Family Reunion on repeat since it went up on PureVolume last week. Well, the record officially dropped Tuesday, but Jade’s copy arrived a day early …and she was jazzed. We think you will be too once you give it a spin!   SphereTones calls itself a “visual instrument” and allows users...
Many of us began our weeks by registering for yet another social media platform. In case you missed it, Vine was just released by Twitter and allows users to post six-second video clips to a layout very similar to Instagram’s.

Everyone needs a healthy and hilarious dose of encouragement from time to time. Check out this awesome video Benj found from Kid President. Most importantly, pass it along! Keeping in the theme of passing along good vibes, here’s Whitney’s favorite from this week. There’s no better way to start off your day than re-affirming all...
I like movement. As a kid I, like many children, loved sticking my arm out of the window to feel the rise and fall of the wind, slightly shaping it with the angle and cup of my hand. There’s something about the constant force and coolness of the breeze matched with the magic of traveling...
I just finished rereading one of my favorite books, The Greatest Thing in the World, written by Henry Drummond at the turn of the 20th century. Ok, so it’s about 40 pages long, but I still count it. It is an excellent and challenging elaboration on chapter 13 of I Corinthians. There is so much in...
Did you know there are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in history? Jade shares with us about a movement, led by her generation, to end it.   John loves this app concept he found on Dribble because of all of the detailed work put into …a concept. Pretty impressive....
