Welcome to my first Tiny Letter! ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) will bring you things that happened this week that probably weren't trending but I think are important. Some letters may be long, others may be short, but hopefully you'll always find something interesting. Happy reading!
1. Emily Books Kickstarter Was Funded
Emily Books is the brainchild of Emily Gould and Ruth Curry that began as a small book subscription company and is now expanding to a feminist publishing project and community. If you like books, women and small business, they are the women to support.
2. I Tried Periscope
I struggle with Periscope and Meerkat (apps that let you live broadcast) because it forces you to carry your phone to film which drains battery and turns you into an even more oblivious pedestrian. At the same time, it can be fun to see what people are doing all over the world. It's strange to see people out at bars with it but could be a game changer when it comes to reporting. In the app, you can ask questions and view ended streams but on the web you can only view live events. I used it to broadcast my cat on my lap while we watching Catfish and got 12 viewers. What a world.
3. Chip and Adele Stole My Heart
Chip is a chihuahua and Adele is a kitten. They were found together, abandoned, and have a bond like no other. I die.
4. Folding A Map Premiered
I like all people involved in this. They are funny. I am excited to see where this web series goes. Be sure to watch the credits.
5. I Favorited This Tweet

6. I Really Liked This Week's Reply All
I love this podcast in general, but this week they talked about being publicly shamed. It's a quick listen, interesting and should make you think about the mob mentality of internet shaming. You will also learn a bit more about what reputation.com actually does (you know you've heard those commercials).
Also, my cats become more active on Instagram. Thanks for reading. Tell your friends and give me all of the feedback!
