Chris Rock’s monologue for the 80th Academy Awards was all about the #WhiteOscars hashtag, and we loved it. And one solution Hollywood might want to look into is the Rent-a-Minority website, made for employers who “are racist, but don’t want to look racist.”
Ok, it’s a satirical website, but we think it makes an interesting statement.
Speaking of interesting statements, Toronto’s own Maayan Ziv has created an app that crowdsources accessible spots in different cities — it’s called ACCESS NOW.
And another app that has our attention is the PartPic which is like Shazam for parts you might need. Just take a picture and it identifies the part and helps you find a replacement.
