…And we’re back! It’s been two years since the last edition of this journal was written. During our initial sprint, 1500+ people started following along. The code that supported it was written as part of a school project, then it crashed, and life got in the way. By relaunching here, we are hoping to support our initial following and anyone else who decides to join us as we continue highlighting a diverse set of companies and roles. The landscape for opportunity is greater than ever with the amount of available jobs at one of its highest peaks. This journal focuses on opportunities to collaborate with compelling companies working across social, cultural, technological and scientific endeavors who also have the creative integrity and resources to solve unique problems globally. Our goal is to make the landscape of opportunity easier to digest whether you work in software engineering, human resources, creative, film production or business development.

Instagram, is well, Instagram. They made some significant announcements at the most recent F8 keynote that include being able to raise money via your IG story for causes you care about like GLAAD and the Malala Fund. The theme was that “the future is private.” Instagram is rolling out private tests in Canada where like counts on videos and photos will only be visible to the user, not their followers, to promote more authentic content and user behavior in a less pressurized environment. They also mentioned a handful of other ways they are updating the app to facilitate more creative efforts aka anything that isn’t an image. See more here from The Verge.
