It’s a sad week here at Goodstuff Towers, as we say goodbye to two cracking Goodstuffers, Anna May and Alice Vida, who are off to conquer the digital and real world, respectively. In honour, we’ll be playing Brian May and “Livin’ la Vida Loca” on repeat all day. Should be fun. But of course, in between we will be reading some of these fascinating things we have found from around the internet this week
Editor’s Note: Anna May hired me so felt I had to put something nice in.
I’m sure we’d all like the chance to one up the current White House in some way but the Guggenheim have had just that chance. Despite a request for a Van Gough, they instead offered a golden toilet. Trump probably took it as a compliment.
That’s right the hallmark holiday is fast approaching. Valentines is just around the corner with its dreaded pitfalls.
Restaurants will be all booked up. You’ll break the bank for a decent meal. Well what if you could enjoy a romantic meal for a slice of the price. A steak slice to be correct. Greggs have ingeniously paired up with Open Table to offer a romantic four course meal in their flashiest establishments for only £15. Table for 2, garcon…
Stop the waffle. Keep it relevant. So BBH say.
Editor: As a fan of waffle, this was tricky for me.
In a move to create more ‘meaningful connections’, Facebook recently announced changes to their news feed algorithm. The aim, reduce the number of viral videos and publisher content people see in their feeds, and increase the visibility of posts from friends and family. The result, as expected they have already seen a 5% dip in usage. In our view, it can only be a good thing, improving the social experience for all.
You’d think with people using Facebook less and having more time on their hands, they would spend it in the great outdoors, say walking their dogs. But after Wag, an on demand dog walking app, managed to raise $300 million pounds in funding it seems most people won’t be bothering with that. Surely this kind of defeats the object of a having a dog?
So, what will people be doing with all that extra time? Obviously, they’ll be playing with Flame Throwers. Well they will now Elon Musk has managed to raise $7.5m for his Boring Company, by selling 15,000 of them. Crowdfunding has never been less boring.
