The Verge: Follow us on Twitter! by Laura June was released on 19 May 2012. There is a great list of creative talent here, to explore. Apropos: I recommend following users on Twitter that make-up your news diet.

Why am I sharing this?

Firstly, I like Laura June’s name. It’s badass. Laura June sounds like the name of a tomb raider–an unabashed mover and shaker. The bottom line is: she produces great content for The Verge. And she reminds me of Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs). All great things. You can check out how long June’s been On The Verge* by clicking her name [above, P1].

My main point
The Verge and their organization’s culture is dank (#12). Look at their post! It’s clean and neat and sharp. And the photo op is very durable and posh, like a modern day Mad Men. If you stumbled upon this post–even if you didn’t know who or what these people were doing–it would still make for a kick-ass desktop background.

How many people can say that about their job or work culture?
