Navarr Barnier, Magento Developer:
Steam Cars were already dead by 1910, but apparently a man named Abner Doble took one last shot at making a good steam automobile – and the result is amazing.
How a Car Works (probably nothing on steam automobiles, though)
Greg Crane, Magento Developer:
Now don’t get me wrong I enjoyed the new Jurassic Park movie, but there were a few ridiculous scenes where the main heroine is running from a T-Rex in high heels. This is a funny video that pokes fun at the franchise adding heels to all the charters including the dinosaurs.
Adam Boe, Magento Intern:
It’s great to see the AP releasing so much historical footage, helping us all reminisce on such recent history.
John Kormanec, Solutions Architect:
Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking is helping to launch a new, large-scale search for extra-terrestrial life. The search will consist of two distinct initiatives, “Breakthrough Listen” and “Breakthrough Message”, which will span over a 10 year period. Interestingly, the project will leverage the long-running Seti@Home distributed computing platform to process the large amounts of data collected during this time.
Michelle Kowalski, UI/UX Designer:
This week I had to pass on signing Jolene because I didn't know all of the lyrics. I won't make that mistake again.
Gian Genovesi, Magento Delivery Director:
I stumbled on a post on reddit about a human computer and started reading more about Katherine Johnson who, although not as famous as the John Glenns or Buzz Aldrins, is equally as (if not more) influential in the awesome space stuff we've done - much like a lot of the work we as consultants do 'behind the scenes.'
