Tuesday TEA Time
I’m traveling for a couple weeks, so these may be a bit brief. I hope you have a good week and find something interesting below.

OH (from an awesome Lyft driver): “Today has been great. I’ve been blessed by the algorithm.”

Immediately had an eerie feeling that this could become an increasingly common way to describe a day.

This tweet really impacted me. The things we tech nerds build, that are often not as smart as we say, have huge impacts on so many people. Another great tweet is the list of women in tech that you can follow on social media:

Comedian Jon Benjamin's Jazz Album
The above jazz album by comedian Jon Benjamin is hilarious. He doesn’t know how to play the piano. The second song on the album is so good. It’s worth listening to that track to hear what it’s like when talented jazz musicians play alongside someone who doesn’t belong there (or does he?).

Also, I recommend this article about how 80s is coming back:
Help! The ’80s Are Back - The New York Times
Via Colossal: Suspended Ocean Wave Installations by Miguel Rothschild. I love these and I wish I could see them in person. From above it’s the sea, from below it’s the sky.
I found the work of Jungho Lee and I loved the images of large books in the world in different situations. After looking through more there is just so many beautiful images. Browse through them if you have time.

I hope you found something interesting and I hope you have a good rest of the week.
