Weekly digest

We start each week together, discussing interesting subjects we've shared with each other since the previous digest.

Monday mornings should be fun and easy to help us get into the working spirit. We start each week with an hour long team call from 8am GMT (9am CET). The articles range from design and development, to politics, science, and general tomfoolery. Below is the history of what we have shared.
