With Tuesday comes a brand new episode of Another Round!
On this week’s episode we interview Anil Dash, cofounder and CEO of ThinkUp, the creator of Makerbase (like an IMDb for tech), and a guy that you probably already follow on Twitter.
Here are links to a bunch of things we talked about:
What’s with tumblr’s love for Bee Movie?
Traveling while brown, or, a series of interactions with the TSA.
Anil spent a year only retweeting women, and this is what he learned.
We also subjected Anil to a new game called “Peep This” aka “Guppy Tank,” wherein we pitch him ~incredible~ product ideas, and he has to figure out whether they’re real or fake.
Venture capitalists, get at us! You know you need a Froomba in your life.
Also this week, Heben tells a What Had Happened Was about a childhood injury, and we share some brief thoughts on Macklemore’s “White Privilege II,” a song you may have seen some chatter about on the internet.
