Glitterbomb 3.0 vs. Porch Pirates | 22 min watch

What a lovely tradition this guy is building here. If this is the first time you watch a Glitter Bomb video by Mark Rober, do yourself a favor and watch the previous two first. You’ll thank me later. If you know what this is all about, well…who am I kidding? You’re already watching the video.

52 things I learned in 2020 | 7 min read

Another end-of-the-year tradition.

A most resolved tweet 👪


This app I found 📱

What to Tweet | This is a nice app for two reasons, and for two opposite types of users. If you use Twitter, this app does what it says in the name, i.e. it provides cool ideas on what to tweet about. If you don’t use Twitter, this app gives you an insight into the types of content you might be missing. No FOMO, please.
