Week end is here, and here’s my weekly list of suggested reads! Hope you’ll enjoy…
A really interesting read. If you’re not into retirement in the next five years, for me it’s mandatory to begin to think at what our job possibility will be…
What will happen to jobs?
According to the Forum’s Future of Jobs report, some jobs will be wiped out, others will be in high demand, but all in all, around 5 million jobs will be lost.
Already jobs exist now that had never been heard of five years ago: the role of data scientist, which is in huge demand, is one example.
The true test of intelligence is not how much we know how to do, but how to behave when we don’t know what to do.

Today’s selection of articles is a bit too focused, narrowed on typography and web design. Also the WordPress’ future post by Chris Wallace was an interesting and inspiring read…
Today I’m excited to introduce Canvas. Canvas is notes for teams of nerds. It’s already getting used by dozens of teams to take notes, work on new product features, send out investor updates, and even create police reports in one crazy instance.
As anyone who’s ever contemplated working on a text editor knows, ‘thar be dragons’. We’ve spent the past year creating a solid foundation and striking new ground into creating the best developer focused editing experience. For the public beta, we focused on 4 areas:
- Start with the writing. It’s the best way to clarify thought. Getting words down is the start to any good product. Canvas makes you and your words shine.
- Focused on flow. No preview, we’ll fold the markdown instead. Minimal chrome. Markdown shortcuts to keep your hands flying.
- Absurdly easy sharing. URLs are magic. Start up a meeting, share the URL in Slack, and your entire team is instantly in.
- Hackable. Make it easy to integrate into your workflows and systems. No lock in. Create structure where there wasn’t any before.
We’re only just beginning, and want your feedback. Over the coming year we’re working on making Canvas into a true workbench. For me, this means embedding content from all over, making Canvas a live view into your GitHub and Trello workflows. I’m excited to hear how you want Canvas to evolve.
So far my only regret is the missing support of Firefox (of which today Mozilla has released the version 47.0) … and I’ll write about that to the author as soon as I’ll hit that publish button here!
