Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax with the best of (and last of) 2016!

  • “This was a weird year for many—including Mother Nature. This year brought us two-headed sharks, anal-drumming caterpillars, and a spider with an internal disco ball—you can’t make this stuff up.” – The 10 Weirdest Animal Stories of 2016
  • “Every year, I find big themes or specific company stories that I feel are impressive, important, or indicative of where the world is going. In 2016, two dwarf the rest: the election of Donald Trump and significant action on climate change. The context for sustainable business in 2017 may center on the competition between these two stories; that is, how will Trump and his team impact or impede progress on climate and other sustainability issues?” – 9 Sustainable Business Stories That Shaped 2016
  • “The NPR music team picks its favorite music vidoes of 2016.” – Best music videos of 2016
  • “Thanks to the wonder that is the internet, every truth comes with two lies. There were tons of rumors that circulated this year about our favorite movies, shows, and comic book franchises. Of course, tons of them turned out to be total bullshit—and sometimes, that was a real disappointment.” – 13 Rumors From 2016 We Wish Had Been True
  • “From Making Oprah to Trumpcast and My Dad Wrote a Porno, here are the most brilliant, essential listens of the year.” – The 50 best podcasts of 2016
