Threadsy gives back through t-shirts

Have you ever had the urge to give back to the community? Seth Manthei did and with that urge he added his passion for design and launched Threadsy. “It’s a t-shirt company that raises funds and awareness for charity groups,” explains Manthei in a recent podcast.

A look into the future

Good evening folks and welcome to another edition of Tech Thursday on Jabber Log. The inspiration for this post comes from a fellow classmate and an assignment we did in class.

The Porcelain God awaits the feeble; mouth watery, world spinning, body sweating like dew. The God will help for good not for evil, hug him close, Read more [...]
