The Big Sleep
Postlight (my favorite web shop helmed by smart good person Paul Ford) and Bloomberg (Bloomberg) have built a cool thing. It’s an iOS app and a Chrome extension [chrome.google] that’ll overlay any page with everything Bloomberg knows about the people and companies and things in that page. I
just used it on the Star Wars Wikipedia page and it correctly identified that Sony, a company that makes cameras used in the films, is worth a lot of money. Maybe I’m not the target market. Here’s more on what it is and why it exists [mailchi.mp].
Finally, today’s Thing You Need in Your Life: a pop-up nap pod [kickstarter]. Also useful for when you bring your kids and/or pets to work and also useful if you’re in an airport, waiting for a flight, or
something. Actually, this may be the most useful thing I’ve ever seen.
There's another Versioning, for Thursday (in case you use these newsletters to remember which day it is, like I do). I'll have a few more tomorrow, I'm just going to have a quick nap for now. Not in a pod, just slumped on my desk as normal.
