Living in Edinburgh, working in tech

Only when we find ourselves being 28 years old with a great career and still sharing a flat with 3 other (not very tidy) people, stuck on the tube for 2 hours daily, working way too hard, feeling really tired and not having time for anything fun… that’s when we understand what level of living actually means. And also that there must be better places for that.

Edinburgh is the one. The Level of Living Capital, it is also a second largest financial centre in the UK, extremely startup friendly and has almost London level of salaries with everything else significantly cheaper. It is also compact and charming and full of history and [...]

This Drone Video Shows Amazing Views Of Chicago

Filmmakers Rick Wayne and Brad Johnson left Chicago last month to take their film company Underscore Films to Los Angeles. Before they left, though, they decided to create one last film of their home city: a beautiful drone-captured video called Homesick for Chicago.

“It’s hard to say goodbye to someone you love but nothing can prepare you to say goodbye to your city,” the filmmakers wrote on YouTube. “We were born here, had our hearts broken then mended and we grew up into business men. Chicago is something you have to let into your soul to understand. Although our careers lead us out west to Los Angeles, our hearts will forever remain in the Windy [...]

This Restaurant Serves Food With No Human Interaction

The only humans on-site are those working behind the scenes—and even they may soon be replaced by machines.

The result is something as-of-yet unheard of, but long anticipated, in the fast food industry. From the moment you walk in the door until you leave the restaurant, no human interaction is required.

What this means depends on whether you’re a glass-half-full or half-empty kind of person. On one hand, it makes restaurant-going cheaper and more [...]

Depriving burnout of a pathological categorization keeps too many working too hard for too long. With no concrete, widely-recognized medical definition, doctors have a tough time diagnosing it and getting the insurance coverage for its treatment. Worse, when employees at all [...]
