This technology will change everything! A look into Magic Leap

@design-guy: If you haven’t been paying attention to tech news or investor news for the past year plus, this will be an exciting development for you. If you have, you’re well aware of the powerful new technology that will very soon be available to us as consumers, customers and also to designers and developers. The technology I’m talking about is currently being developed by a company called Magic Leap. The company name stems from the concept of creating the leap from reality into virtual reality, augmented reality and a term coined by the founder of the company called mixed reality.

어둠에 끌리는 여자 A woman drawn to the darkness

@tata1: Do you feel the disadvantages of people?
It's a habit of being attracted to the dark.
You feel the darkness of others -
Is it light or dark?

The wrong forecast of analysts and the new societies growing around us

@paolobeneforti: What is going to happen in the crypto-world in the next months? No one can tell you.
During 2017, the best analysts around the world lost their faces trying to forecast the development of crypto prices.

Getting Back at Le Corbusier : Spray-painting the Villa Savoye

@erb: In 2009, I participated in an architecture studio lead by starchitect Daniel Libeskind. The concept of the studio was daunting for a third-year architecture student like myself: to sum up all architecture in the creation of a book-object, and inspire my entire future career in the process...Almost immediately after being assigned the task of creating the "sum of all architecture," I knew my book-object would be an exploration of Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier. For the entire duration of my studies at Cornell's architecture program, my professors had been pushing the importance of this building, and I felt it was time to express my opinion about it.

Daily Food Photography - 5th January

@howtostartablog: What's up guys. Today's judging was much harder considering the number of entries and some fresh faces. As i couldn't pick all i decided to just vote on some of the entries and it may well be better than the prize!

Winter Wonderland (Part 2)

@osm0sis: Walk with me through rural Burgundy to discover my Winter Wonderland. Most often photographed in the warm Summer months, this part of France will surprise you with its frosty vineyard landscapes and quaint villages which seem frozen in time.

Three Questions I Ask Myself Before Posting On Steemit

@jaff8: Steemit is a bondless social network, so it is easy to find thoughts of individuals here. This is both good and bad, because it would be unwise to post what one would regret posting later. Despite anything can be posted on the blockchain, one should think carefully before posting and limit oneself. There has been several complaints on Steemit about some individuals raping the rewards pool, but with deep thoughts before posting such situations can be avoided.

Nihilistic Camp: A Trumpist Memeplex for the Naughty (Accelerate or Loop? No. 5)

@spectrums: At this point in the series, I hope it’s increasingly clear that I am writing towards a unified theory of information for the left on the (Steem) blockchain...This sort of identity politics at play is a genre of fascist laughter that one might call nihilistic camp. Nihilistic camp deserves an independent, essay-length treatment, but here it will be my shorthand for an exemplary mode of the chaos being wrought by alt-right memetics on the body politic.

Highly Practical Information Science – How to Effectively Search Using Search Engines

@fingersik: Welcome to the sidechain of my Information science series. Whereas the original chain is rather theoretical and its main aim is spread the overall awareness about Information science and aspects it’s trying to deal with, the sidechain will only contain highly practical skills learned through the Information science itself. In the first sidechain’s article I’ll try to explain how to effectively search through search engines such as Google (for I bet that most of us are not scientists that would want to search through scientific databases).

Amazing world of insects / Dung beetles; Protectors of the ecosystem

@myego13: In this post of our insects series, I want to introduce you the hidden heroes of the ecosystem closely. Even their duty is a dirty thing for most of us, even they aren't doing this for the sake of our or the natures wellness, they are helping all the living in a way that is way more than their bodies can take. Yes, our heroes are Dung beetles...

Virtual Reality – Future or Fad? Developer insight

crypto3d: I remember watching numerous TEDx videos describing how VR will change the world, how it will affect our lives and the ways we express ourselves. Everyone thought it had so much potential in industries varying from architecture and gaming to even therapy and psychology. Most of those videos are over 2 years old now, yet to most people (non-gamers) VR hasn’t really changed all that much. Why?

Does social media make our life unsocial?

@kenan1989: I wrote about how social media effect our life. we all know that the internet controls everything we do. I tried to explain disadvantages of social media and advantages of social media.

4 Reasons To Avoid Steemit Drama

@jrswab: In my short time in the Steemit community I've seen a few big 'whale wars' and drama around certain topics. We are not going to talk about any of them in this post. Instead, we will be looking at how taking part in the drama affects us and our blog.

Freedom Comes with Responsibilities

@GuyFawkes4-20: Freedom seems like this shiny thing at the end of the tunnel that everybody talks about, and everybody wants to taste it, but most of the people have no idea what it is. Freedom, as any other thing in life, comes with a price, comes at the expense of something else.

☕World’s Largest Starbucks Opened in Shanghai // 全球最大的星巴克门市在上海开幕

@abroadlife: Who says Chinese people don’t like to wait in line?
On December 6th, 2017, the world’s largest Starbucks (over 30,000 square feet) opened in a gigantic building across the street from the Nanjing West Road subway station. Even a month later in 2018, Chinese people are willing to stand in long lines in order to experience these large-scale stores they call “Starbucks Reserve Roasteries” (this is the second after the one that opened in Seattle earlier this year). According to the security guards who manage the queue, the average customer spends about $45 there in one sitting.

World Music Pioneer -- Yusef Lateef's Eastern Sounds

@roused: Think back to a time more than fifty years ago, to the days portrayed on the TV series Mad Men. In 1961, John Kennedy and Billboard's Easy Listening Chart were inaugurated, a freedom riders bus was fire-bombed in Alabama, Rock Hudson was on the big screen, and Doris Day was selling albums.
At this same time, saxophonists Yusef Lateef and John Coltrane were pioneering an approach to music that transcended convention, cultures, borders and labels; concomitantly, Robert E. Brown, a young professor of ethnomusicology at Wesleyan University, coined the term "world music."

Resume articles that are all interesting. However, I give more attention to the @GuyFawkes4 posting about the freedom to attend to the responsibilities of Steemit, amidst the multitudes of people who just want to enjoy freedom and forget responsibility: I hope that article makes us redeem the meaning of freedom in Steemit.

Thanks a lot @sndbox.

Amazing work you're doing. Thanks for the insight. Kudos!

Kindly follow back and upvote me, thanks! 🙂

I've just read the titles at the moments, but there are many posts which seem really interesting in this list! I will surely read the two on Virtual Reality by @design-guy and @crypto3d and the two regarding Le Corbusier buildings by @erb and @mintvilla.

Thanks for reading and for supporting these great authors :D

A rich collection of useful information. I particularly like the write ups on effect of social media, war in Steemit circles, and other topics under ideas and History. This is practically a good library for a researcher. Thanks.

Glad this curation could connect you to some great content! Thanks again for your support :)

Thanks for great word shinning light on artists. I hope I will also write something worth your attention one day.

I've seen this initiative around for a while and I've always been curious about it. Sorry for my ignorance, but how does one become a @sndbox fellow? What are the qualifications needed to join?


Edit: I guess it all depends on nomination from a pre-existing fellow, is that right?
