This is likely to be the only conference where you see tech CEOs listening to a freelance jewelry designer talk about her struggles paying the rent.

Last week we sketched the Apple Event together on Mix with Paper. Different people, perspectives, and insights – well over 128 of them. See the remix family here.

To help bolster its curation efforts, FiftyThree has hired some serious community talent. That includes former Flickr community manager Heather Champ, Vimeo’s former director of community Dr. dalas verdugo, and former Foodspotting community and social media head Amy Cao.

MIX. CREATE TOGETHER.

The English inventor Sir Isaac Newton famously said, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.*” This notion, that collaboration is the heart that drives creative thinking is what inspired us to create Mix, an open platform for creativity, built right into Paper.

Get inspiredGetting started is often the hardest part of doing anything creative. With Mix, you’ll find a well of inspiration from creators around the world, both in Paper and on mix.fiftythree.com. Whether you’re skilled at drawing, or just comfortable coloring and doodling, you’ll be inspired to create and learn on Mix.

No more blank pagesProfessionals don’t start from scratch, and neither should you. On Mix you’ll find templates, outlines, and ideas ready to be remixed and transformed into something new. Say goodbye to the blank page.

Get and share feedbackMix is a big, visual conversation, and some of the best conversations happen when people are invited to tell their own stories. Mix is about leaving open spaces for people to fill in, and letting ideas evolve in unexpected ways.

We could not be more excited to welcome you to a whole new world of creative possibility. Join the Mix.

*Newton’s famous quote was itself a remix of an idea attributed to Bernard of Chartres in the 12th c.

This has been in the making for quite some time, with a very aggressive production schedule. I’m super proud of the work the team has done so far and excited to start working with the community that springs up around this new way to work together and have fun.

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

My people getting it!

these people are the real heroes. not the military, not politicians, not the Hollywood actors. they risked their lives and livelihoods to challenge white supremacy and institutionalized racism.
