In July: Sponsoring the Lakers, watching #TDF2018 while working & vaporware horseshit

Zoox Bloomberg Businessweek PrintIn July, we became FIFA World Champions and the Tour de France has provided us with 3 great, entertaining weeks of racing. In this post I share my 5 favorites articles of the month: why Wish sponsors the LA Lakers, how Dribble’s product team works, where Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku comes from, when Airbnb adopted storyboards and what “vaporware horseshit” product Zoox’s team is working on.

Other cool articles are about artificial intelligence, the evolution of finance in the last 10 years… or a very moving Russian animation about homeless people.

Also: two long reads from Wired (about Facebook) and The New Yorker (about HappyOrNot), as well as a case study of a French dating platform’s marketing efforts.

There have been more than 30 monthly digest posts now. A small milestone that I’m quite proud of, as it takes discipline to write up a blog post every month. But it’s a good way to give all the things we see & read every day a second thought. Sitting down and synthesizing thought-provoking content in a series of paragraphs allows me to improve my writing & communication skills. And to build a community!

Let me wish you – reader – a great, loving and fulfilling month of December.
