7 Things (I Found Fascinating) This Week [#3]

  1. I hadn’t realized that the Vice President is sworn in first during the inauguration. Make sense so that there’s succession in place, just in case a catastrophe occurs in the first few moments of a new administration. Although, a large chunk of the succession line attended church together prior to the ceremonies this week. Wholesome…but risky. [Emily Jacobs]
  2. Amanda Gorman’s poem, The Hill We Climb, which she performed at the inauguration this week was poignant and powerful. I have a feeling she’s going to be one to keep an eye on. [Via John Gruber]
  3. If you’re in the mood for some incredible performance art stationed at the intersection of Magical and Moving, do yourself a favor and watch In & Of Itself on Hulu. [Via Lex Friedman}
  4. Clever of the Biden Administration to put a job application call-to-action for website developers within the new WhiteHouse.gov source code. [Mitchell Clark]
  5. I, like the rest of the internet, have loved the Bernie memes this week. They’re endearing in a way that most memes aren’t. It’s also super cool that Bernie turned the sensation into an opportunity to help people. [David Matthews]
  6. Although not unexpected, the pandemic has now been proven to be adversely affecting the mental health of youth. The President/CEO of the American Camp Association insists that (safe) summer camps are needed now more than ever. I agree. [Tom Rosenberg]
  7. After 12 years, I never expected to see a sequel to Doodle Jump, one of the OG great iOS games (and has been kept up-to-date for modern devices). But The Doodler is back in Doodle Jump 2 with some great improvements. It’s just as fun today as it was back in 2009. [Alex Guyot]
