Today’s read: Various !

It’s been a while since I wrote anything here. I was kinda busy with so many things and that made me to stay away from writing for these many days.

Today I’ve found a few articles in fastcompany.com (via twitter), fastcodesign.com & Smashing Magazine. And I’m really surprised by some of the facts which I found and some facts are really cool.
