Cool things #23: Vacay

Happy July!

I don't know where I've been, but 

gmail keyboard shortcuts

 are amazing. Highly recommended.

 And there's an info graphic with the best ones!

Last week Gabe & Jamie attended LaunchEdu, and I'm excited to get a full update from them, but in the meantime I'm enjoying checking out new education companies through videos from the conference.

I'm pretty excited to check this out on Sunday (there's still tickets available...): 

Elizabeth Stark has taught about Stanford and Yale about the future of the internet and is currently an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Stanford’s StartX. Astra Taylor is a documentarian, Strike Debt activist, and author (The People’s Platform: And Other Digital Delusions). They will debate technological and anti-institutional approaches to the future of education.

We had a little thunderstorm in NYC this morning (has everyone else been getting the emergency service flash flood alerts on their phone?? That's a really great new feature.) Two thuderclaps and this scaredy cat hid behind the toaster for an hour.
