3… 2… 1… 🚀. We just launched the new korres.com. A site that’s as clean and simple as their products. We worked with Korres Athens to tell their seed to skin story, showcase their natural ingredients, and create a tailored shopping experience that helps you build your beauty regimen. Check it out (and maybe pick something up while you’re at it).

Announcing our new Partner, Camille Imbert! She's been a member of the Kettle family from the very start, when that family was working around our co-founder's kitchen table in Williamsburg. What's changed? Today she leads our creative team on the West Coast with a focus on all things Apple. What hasn't changed? Her love of karaoke, martial arts, and quality chocolate. Félicitations!

Scientists are researching whether or not humans are actually prepared for learning we’re not alone in the universe. “I think we’re generally sort of positively predisposed to novelty, unless we have strong reason to suspect it could harm us."

Most Americans would probably be thrilled to learn extraterrestrials (intelligent or not) exist. Other nationalities beg to differ

10 Steps To Increase Diversity In Design Right Now

According to the 2016 AIGA/Google Design Census, 73% of graphic designers are white, 8% are Asian, 7% are Hispanic, and 3% are African-American. That’s an improvement, but still doesn’t mirror the U.S. population.

Jacinda Walker, chair of AIGA’s Diversity & Inclusion Task Force, shares 10 things designers and managers can do to make the industry more diverse, from mentoring students to recruiting talent from job sites that cater to black and Hispanic workers.

The Real Achievement of “Black Panther”

Who saw Black Panther this long weekend? This New Yorker piece really nails why the movie is igniting a cultural movement of its own.

"With its vision of an unplundered homeland, blooming from liberty rather than from bondage, “Black Panther” is, in the fullest sense, an African-American work."

While fulfilling the dictates of the blockbuster genre, Ryan Coogler also displays his affinity for the rough textures of non-heroic experience.

Can Computers Learn Like Humans?

"Deep learning #AI in computers resembles how scientists think the human brain works. The brain has 100 billion or so neurons. Researchers say connections among these neurons change as people learn a new task. Something similar is going on inside a computer."

Computers use artificial intelligence to do everything from drive cars to pick music we like. But what exactly is artificial intelligence? How does it work? What are its limits?

Social networks are broken. This man wants to fix them.

In the past, if you wanted to change the world, you had to pass a law or start a war. Now you create a hashtag. Ethan Zuckerman, a professor at MIT, studies how people change the world, or attempt to, by using social media or other technological means. Zuckerman knows what it’s like to build technology that pisses a lot of people off. Back in the 1990s, he created what became one of the most hated objects on the internet: the pop-up ad.

Great read detailing why we need moral examples of people who can admit when they’re wrong — and scientists do it well.

Right now society has an epidemic of the opposite: too many people with a bulldog unwillingness to admit when they’re factually wrong.

All Followers Are Fake Followers

Interesting personal account of fake fans from follower factories in The Atlantic.

“The problem with Twitter — and with social media in general — isn’t that the influence can be faked. It’s that it is seen to have so much significance in the first place.”

A New York Times exposé of a “black market” for online fame diagnoses the symptom of social-media despair, but misses its cause.

Slack hopes its AI will keep you from hating Slack

Slack estimates that the average user sends 70 messages per day. How can you know which are must-reads and which can be skipped? Slack’s solution: artificial intelligence.

"One feature shows which people within a company talk about particular topics most often in Slack and where those discussions take place. The information, which appears when users conduct searches in Slack, is meant to pinpoint subject experts so people can direct questions to their most knowledgeable and accessible colleagues."

The fastest-growing business app is relying on machine-learning tricks to fend off a deluge of messages—as well as competition from Facebook and Microsoft.

Why Trying New Things Is So Hard to Do

Experimentation is an act of humility, an acknowledgment that there is simply no way of knowing without trying something different.

Most people make relatively few personal experiments, in both small and big things. The cost of passivity is enormous.
