A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:
Disney to feature first Latina princess on preschool channel. "'Elena of Avalor' features traditions that are familiar to the worldwide population of Hispanic and Latino families." [Bloomberg]
How a kosher wine became a hip-hop staple: "It’s not surprising Bartenura Moscato’s new slogan is Out of the Blue—that’s perhaps the best way to describe the OU-certified kosher wine’s transformation from Shabbat dinner staple to nightclub drink of choice." [Tablet]
At 90, she's designing tech for aging boomers. "And for the bulging demographic of baby boomers growing old, Beskind has this advice: Embrace change and design for it." [NPR]
Why I am not a maker. "Making is not a rebel movement, scrappy individuals going up against the system. While the shift might be from the corporate to the individual . . . it mostly re-inscribes familiar values, in slightly different form: that artifacts are important, and people are not." [The Atlantic]
