Also, over the next two weeks, in partnership with an e-reading application
called Threadable, I will be hosting an asynchronous discussion of four of

smartphone or table. In the Circles tab press the "Someone Invited Me"
button and enter the code 72469.

Hope you'll consider sharing your thoughts!
