The latest news in tech, marketing, and what was actually interesting in tech and culture curated by @oliviameng from New York

Hello and welcome to #9! It is only one week away to #10. ✌️
First, I apologize for the 2 weeks absence. I was on vacation and things were slow. I decided to stop and take a break. When things were slow and I didn’t find interesting articles. It’s better to have a break. I want to keep doing it because I really enjoy it. Next time you will get my “out of the office” message.👏
In this week’s issue, I have many things to share with you.  I am a big fan of the side project. It’s not easy when you just start it or doing it alone. Ryan Hoover, the founder of Product Hunt, built up an amazing online community dedicated to the new product, tech, digital, and cat gifs. Now it’s becoming a primary platform for product launching. I am very inspired by his latest articles about working on the side project.

Lastly, the best saved for the last, so I have been working on an interesting project. It’s a Pro Bono Tech program with NYC civic hall lab. Last week was the mid-point of the program. Now I feel more confident to share some thoughts and reflections. This year, the program has around 15 product teams working with New York City-based non-profit organization. 
I am writing about the feelings and thoughts about working this project.  Go all the way to the bottom of this letter. It will be there in next 2 weeks. 

Ok, bye, see ya

enjoy the weekend.

This week's quote 🌞
There are clubs you can’t belong to. Neighborhoods you can’t live in. Schools you can’t get into. But the roads are always open.
