Dave Balser, JD Edwards Delivery Director: 

The Coen Brothers’ movie ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou? celebrated its 15th anniversary this week.  The movie helped re-ignite an interest in American roots music, with the soundtrack selling 8 million copies and winning a Grammy in 2002

 

John Kormanec, Solutions Architect:  

Portfolio Visualizer

If recent bear market activity has you thinking about adjustments to your 401K, then check out this site. There are several excellent tools available here to help guide your investment decisions. My favorite, the Backtest Portfolio Analyzerallows you to see growth & performance trends for your current portfolio, compare them to those of other model portfolios, and perform “what if” analysis by changing your asset sources, asset allocation, re-balancing frequency, etc.

 

Navarr Barnier, Magento Developer:

Fly Pigeon

Is it real? I can’t tell. It’s either the most fascinating online service I’ve ever seen or a humorous commentary on the everything-as-a-service movement. So check out Pigeon – Carrier Pigeon as a Service.

 

Greg Crane, Magento Developer:

Netflix and Virgin America team to fill the friendly skies with shows and movies

Netflix on planes! You will be able to log into/watch Netflix via wifi for free on Virgin America flights, no more fees. Hopefully, this is adopted by more airline companies.

 

Michelle Kowalski, UI/UX Designer:

Why Sweden Is Shifting To A 6-Hour Workday

A six-hour workday can lower your risk of stroke and help you be more productive. Skål!

 

Hannah Gierosky, Marketing Specialist: 

Tweens talk about dating in the seventh grade

"I'm really busy with sports and hebrew school and preparing for my bar mitzvah, so I don't have a lot of time for that."
