Harvest Playback, Dec 2nd Edition
Just like that and we’re in the last month of 2011, and it hasn’t even snowed in NYC (except for that dusting in October).
This past week, we recovered from Thanksgiving, evolved the recent invoice update, updated the Harvest Forum, released a new Harvest Customers section (full write-up to follow soon!), and tied up all loose ends for a major release next week: a more flexible and powerful way to control user permissions.
Some things Harvesters talked about this week on Co-op:
- We’re having a little Holiday Meetup next week at Harvest HQ, and you’re all invited!
- Yesterday (Dec 1st) marks the second full year that our Sys Admin Extraordinaire, Warwick Poole, joined Harvest!
- Matthew Lettini’s feedback on Android: “taking a screenshot of an android phone is so convoluted that I’m just going to take a picture of it with my iPhone.” But we are making good progress on the latest Harvest Android App – coming soon!
- Kim linked to this neat little printer. We’re not sold on the usefulness but we’re impressed with the well-crafted site (hint: scroll down).
- Speaking of little: T.J. professed his love for Rails for the little things.
- While designing the case study for Cuban Council, Lettini noticed their interesting uniform policy.
- Fun fact: Did you know that the national flag of Nepal is the world’s only national flag that is non-quadrilateral in shape?
- In the news: Stalin’s daughter died, and that reminded Warwick of Nandos, a fast food chain in South Africa, has a history of awesome commercials which upset every group imaginable.
- Some articles on our reading list: Say No to SOPA, A Town in New York Creates Its Own Department Store, Open Source (Almost) Everything.
- On our Watercooler Tumblr: good reminder from Murakami and deconstructed time.
