Happy Friday, friends! This has been a hard month for the world, so here’s a few links that will hopefully provide a little cheer.
- Ever wonder about the origin of the typewriter? Here’s a graphic history of the beautiful tool. (Rachel has that pink Royal typewriter. It’s pretty awesome.)
- Gabel, an Italian textile company, decided to go without email for a week. The company’s president said that his employees “are rediscovering the pleasure of meeting and talking rather than writing.” Could you do it?
- This is a short story waiting to happen. A man took his son’s GoPro camera on vacation and had it facing the wrong direction the entire time. Someone write this and let us read it.
- On Sunday, Théo Sanson completed a 500-meter slackline walk in the Utah Desert. The incredible short film is aptly titled Across the Sky. We are tiny, but we are amazing.
- Speaking of tiny, a Japanese artist creates minute spacescapes in glass spheres.
- Ever been asked if you have been living under a rock? These people of Setenil de las Bodegas in Spain actually do. The eroded river gorge is as much a part of their town as the buildings that connect to it.
Have a great weekend!
