The Problem with the What Else Mindset by Jocelyn Glei
“The only way to counteract the what else mindset is to regularly, proactively define what “enough” means to you.”

Monkeys and chimpanzees understand trade and stone tools. So tick-tock, you know?

I ordered a pair of these handmade shoes, and they’re so lovely.

I’ve been thinking about this Jawanza Kunjufu quote, “Some mothers raise their daughters but love their sons.” from How to Raise a Feminist Son via Say Yes

Also via Say Yes, this comic on how women tend to be the project managers at home, You Should’ve Asked. Mental and emotional workload is something my husband and I talk about, it such a useful concept for people in partnership to understand.

Congrats to Cam and Doug Bowman, who just launched Greater Ink, a T-shirt company that donates 25 percent of profits to organizations like the ACLU, Lawrence Hall of Science, and the United Way. I got Science Matters shirts for the boys, and a Resist shirt for myself.

And our design consultancy Tall West published some nerd work over on Medium, “All Thumbs, Why Reach Navigation Should Replace the Navbar in iOS Design.”

Also, what kind of palms are these, does anyone know?

  • SW Says:

    Picture of plant looks like Ravenala madagascariensis (common name = traveller’s palm. I believe it is from Madagascar. Also believe it is not a “true” palm, botanically speaking

    Thanks, you guys!

  • noodle Says:

    Definitely a Ravenala madagascariensis, related to my local Strelitzia Nicolai… smaller but also creates a gorgeous fan affect.
