Welcome to Some Things – a smattering of inspirational and interesting things we’ve found on the World Wide Web this week.
- 1. Something to make you question the bubble
How many times have your heard a new start up proclaiming that they are the ‘Uber of X’? Hundreds. We bet it is hundreds. This article gives an honest and frank view why a lot of the time the sharing economy model is broken and how, as the VCs dry up, the bubble may begin to burst.
2. Something to peruse
Recently we attended SXSW to have our minds blown by everything from self-driving cars to virtual reality skateboarding. Each day we covered the most interesting and exciting things we found – hopefully some inspiration for your day.
3. Something to confuse your brain
Have you used the MSQRD app to live swap your face with someone else for endlessly amusing results? If you haven’t download it RIGHT NOW. Anyway – now some clever swine has worked out how to use facial recognition technology to mimic your expressions in a live video. Watch the video, it will all make sense.
4. Something to watch and enjoy
Here is a beautifully made video about Sri Lanka, but also about time, that will please your eyes and ears. Pack your bags and clear the desk.
5. Something to make you feel good
