New App: As part of Miu Miu’s women’s tales series, writer and artist Miranda July, in cooperation with Miu Miu, launched an app, called ‘somebody’. ‘Somebody’ offers a new and fun way to communicate: When you send your friend a message through the app, it doesn’t go to your friend, but to the somebody-user nearest your friend. This person, likely a stranger, delivers the message verbally. Just dare to use it, it’s a really fun public art project and available for free in the iTunes store! More on ‘somebody’.

4. Fun Fact: I have to admit, I do not totally get the point of Twitter. But it go a lot more fun when I stumbled upon the account of Bridger Winegar. He’s simply hilarious. His tweets are kind of senseless on one hand, on the other I keep thinking, he’s just so right. One of his Twitter gems: ‘If approached by a bear, you can play dead, or you can acknowledge the bear, say hello, and see what it needs. Have some decency.’

5. Podcast News: I’m totally hooked on the podcast Serial. Serial spawned as a proof-of-concept from the creators of This American Life and tells a single story over the course of a season. In this season the show re-investigates a closed murder case from 1999 revealing new and unbelievable facts, but the way of storytelling is the real art.
