Australia tries to solve its bike-sharing dumping problem

TwitterFacebook

Singapore-based, dockless bike-sharing service oBike fished 42 bikes out of Melbourne’s Yarra River in one day.

Suffice it to say, something has to be done about the high instances of bike-share dumping — and slowly but surely, local councils around the world are taking the lead.

Dockless bike-sharing services have become synonymous with large, unsightly piles of dumped bikes, or bikes left in unusual locations, up trees, in rivers, or just scattered haphazardly around city streets.

Apple AirPods killed the best thing about sharing headphones

TwitterFacebook

AirPods have ruined the headphone-sharing game, and I for one refuse to stay silent while decades of adorable eye-gazing, face-bumping, and shoulder-resting memories fade away.

I recently tried Apple’s wireless ear buds for the first time, and while they may offer a certain sense of freedom and convenience, they’ve completely killed the intimacy that existed between two people sharing a single pair of wired headphones. 

Sharing wired headphones with someone isn’t just a kind gesture — it’s a personal experience that connects two people through sound, but also in a literal sense. Read more…

This venture capital fund wants investors as passionate as philanthropists

TwitterFacebook

Lindsey Taylor Wood spent years working to empower women and girls through nonprofits. But she grew disenchanted with the slow pace of the nonprofit world—and realized that some of its strengths could help improve the quicker-moving world of venture capital. 

“I grew disenchanted with philanthropy,” said Taylor Wood. “You can look by and large at any metric of success, impact, or advancement—for reproductive rights, women in the C-suite—and the net result is stagnation.” 

That’s why she co-founded The Helm, a new venture capital fund that officially launched on Thursday. The fund invests in female founders, and it takes a cue from one area where philanthropy really excels to hopefully improve the impact of its investments.  Read more…

Chester Bennington’s Carpool Karaoke Episode Has Been Released, And It Shows The Face Of Depression
