It has been a while since I featured her here, but Tessa Violet has come up with a couple of new world class songs and their associated music vodeos lately, so it is more than time to do it again. The first is her latest, I Like (the idea of) You, an absolutely hypnotic tune and video. The second is Bad Ideas from last November, another tasty little song. Enjoy!

The Sweet Life Society is an ElectroSwing band out of Italy who have done a number of fun songs, I figured I would share a few of them. The first is 2012’s My Sound, which is an effervesant tune that keeps bubbling up into your head when you least expect it, and it may even be an original tune. That would be unusual, since most ElectroSwing songs start off being a classic Swing tune which then gets sampled and remixed. The second song is 2014’s Prima di ogni prima, probably also original and definately infectuous. To finish it off we have their 2017 song Hard On; that album took a sharp turn away from ElectroSwing and went face first into Ska. Enjoy!

What the Tech Industry Has Learned from Linus Torvalds was a TEDx event, a local self-organized event where x = independently organized TED event. This particular one was put together by Jim Zemlin, who is the Executive Director of the Linux Foundation. He knows better than most just what Linus has contributed to the world, and why it works so well. Prepare to be amazed.
