what if the pokemon center just sends your pokemon’s medical bills home to your mom and your mom just doesn’t tell you about them because she doesn’t want to burden her 10-15 year old child with the harsh realities of the world of westernized medical care

God tumblr… I love you so much tonight.

How The Noun Project Is Turning Icons Into Profit
Noun Project has grown to become a sort of visual dictionary of universally recognized symbols that’s had 10 million downloads. It’s the go-to resource for everyone from the stat heads at Whitehouse.gov, who use a judicial gavel and block symbol as the shorthand “civil rights” in some charts, to store owners in Minneapolis, who will soon be able to apply at a county level for window decals that signify exactly how they organically recycle. But only recently did the Noun Project settle on a viable business plan.

Every day, the app provides a new short story from emerging writers as recommended by trusted scribes, such as David Sedaris and Joyce Carol Oates. These stories are never-before-published works and the app provides stories from more known names, as well as their protegés. Users are given the choice of reading or listening to their selected story.
“All the writers we discover come through recommendation,” explains co-founder Susannah Luthi. “Mentorship and artistic communities have always been so important to the making of literature, and we want to recreate that in the app and then invite readers in.”
Connu

Among the “trusted scribes” doing the recommending: Some of our contributors, including Benjamin Percy.
