Five Things #124
Every Tuesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…
I've been on a good run with books recently. Last week I started and finished Bad Blood by John Carreyrou. The book investigates the rapid rise and fall of the blood testing startup Theranos and it's founder Elizabeth Holmes. Theranos was a company built on lies, deception and a dangerous disregard for good science. It's an astonishing story.
A great profile of Eric Barone the one man team behind the popular indie video game Stardew Valley: "It took him four and a half years to design, program, animate, draw, compose, record, and write everything in the game, working 12-hour days, seven days a week. His budget was the part-time wage he made as an evening usher at the local stage theater."
A slightly different profile, this time of the world's oldest hairdresser, Anthony Mancinelli, he's 107 and still cutting hair full time. What a guy!
How could this not bring a smile to your face? The Super Mario Bros. Overworld and Underworld themes played on the marimba.
