Welcome to another round-up here at Cheeky Monkey Media. It’s a very fun time in the office. We have quite a few people at our physical office and it’s starting to feel real.
In case you missed this week’s newsletter, you can check it out here. You’ll find out what’s happening in December around here. Make sure you check out the section on our top chimp.
This week on the blog we also talk about the power of the Amazon drone. If you want to check out this interview, you should do so. Go ahead, it’s right here.
And before you leave for the weekend, you should check out this blog post about how you can design a website in 2014.
What else is happening around the web?
Well, have a look at these beautiful examples of login forms for websites and apps. These pictures are incredible.
Finally a tribute to Nelson Mandela who passed away this week, but made the world a little better place.Okay, a lot better of a place. Check out these awesome quotes from him:
I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, and one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.
When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace.
Peace out monkeys!
