Ice Cream: Blue Bottle Bar Gelato - This is everything.
Typography: The Font of the Future - Google is intent on creating a typeface that works well on any device, in any use case. Thanks to Meg for the link!
Line Dynamics: Why the Other Line is Always Faster - A look into why it’s so difficult to accurately predict which line is the quickest, and the math behind making the right choice.
Long form: New Yorker - In the words of my good friend Cyana, “A pretty elitist publication that supports pretty good journalism is temporarily giving access to us plebeians.” Go forth and Pocket them!
Kim Kardashian: Why the Kim Kardashian is Legitimately Good - The game is making millions, so put aside your biases and pay attention.
Social Media: What I Instagrammed vs What Was Really Happening - Instagram and Facebook are psychological death traps for teenagers. They highlight curated moments of people’s lives instead of the nitty gritty normal details.
*App: Timehop - http://timehop.com/ - For someone with a few years of their life documented on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter/etc, it’s really fun to open up Timehop and see what I was doing on the same day last year. Highly recommended.
App Trend: Text App - Another app that’s purely text notifications. I’m a fan of this trend, which leverages the lock screen to simplify direct communication.
Habits: Frequent Habits and Customer Satisfaction - Interesting quick read for anyone creating products that will succeed once users fold it into their regular activity.
Xtreme: Surfing the ends of the Earth - Surfing in the artic. Just mindblowing to watch.
App: Phhhoto - Everyone knows I love GIFs! This is, in short, a social image sharing network of GIFs. Instagram meets Vine. Created by my friends at HYPER HYPER Come find me, my username is Emilie. #earlyadopterperk
