Facebook’s ‘Clear History’ tool won’t arrive until spring 2019

When Facebook introduced its Clear History feature in May, it expected to offer the privacy-oriented controls in the space of a few months. Well... it's going to take decidedly longer than that. The company's David Baser told Recode in an interview t...

Do you ever wonder what paper clips looked like 150 years ago?

clip_art_1

If you do wonder what paper clips looked like in eras long gone by, Clip Art (clever wordplay alert?) is a wonderful history lesson in paper clip design. The series features ten different paper clips from 1860 to 1934, recreated from ancient patent records. While we’re pretty happy now in 2018 with the stapler, or the default paper clip (Clippy from Microsoft Office, if one remembers it), the Clip Art is a series worth collecting and admiring, especially for the way it captures how subtly different paper clips looked during the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods (and possibly even how visual styles could be partially dictated by industrial production techniques). The Clip Art also comes with a Clip Chart, a paperback book that ‘charts’ the journey and the evolution of the humble paper clip that could easily be one of the most significantly important inventions in the age of the office.

“Who’s She?” Guessing Game Teaches Facts About Famous Women

I’ve played the old Guess Who? board game with my son and daughter, where you have to ask for hints about who the other player has by asking for clues about the character’s appearance. You ask things like “Do you have hair” and so on. There is a new game in the works that is very similar, but this game is all about extraordinary women in history, and none of the clues have to do with their appearance.

The game is called “Who’s She?” and it features wooden pieces illustrated with famous women on them, like Amelia Earhart, Hatshepsut, and Frida Kahlo. The game includes 28 biography cards that have facts about the lives of the women.

This game sounds like great a way to delve into women’s history while playing. It’s on Kickstarter now, and a pledge of at least $74 will get you a copy of this unique game when it starts shipping in early 2019.
