I am quite excited to introduce something new here, the Studiomates Scuttlebutt.
Wesley Verhoeve mentioned recently how hard it is to keep track of all the interesting projects coming out of our coworking space Studiomates. The pro-active gentleman that he is, he gathered the most recent and newsworthy accomplishments and delivered them to me on a silver platter, so I can share them with you:
– Fictive Kin launched Slash Purpose, an effort to get websites, apps, and products to share the “Why?” behind the project.
– Josh Stewart‘s Farmstand app, connecting users with locally-grown food, was featured in the App Store’s Food and Drink section.

– The folks at GNTLMN launched their re-design, announcing new handmade men’s accessories and events to come in the next few weeks.
– Kio Stark released her Kickstarter-backed book, “Don’t Go Back to School: a handbook for learning anything”, and is mailing out, by hand, about a 1000 books, by hand.
