Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Things that made my day this week, a day later than I had planned to deliver it when I started writing it:

The Improbable Origins of PowerPoint – IEEE Spectrum – built by a couple of former Apple employees and sold to Microsoft

About Amazon – Working at Amazon – Dogs of Amazon – interesting page that is at odds with the narrative about Amazon being a hellish employer. I know friends who described their Amazon experience in very negative terms

InterNyet: why the Soviet Union did not build a nationwide computer network – (PDF)

There was a great talk at Google from Carhartt about their brand and approach to products

I loved this edit of Earth, Wind and Fire.
