Here's the first post of our blog, into things that caught the interest of the creative community.

TJ Holowaychuk could be returning to Open Source
The launch of GitHub Sponsors could be the reason that TJ returns to OSS development full-time. It would be awesome if the, unbelievably productive, developer whose code was powering Netflix, Uber and countless other websites returned.
Talking heads by Samsung's AI lab
A mind-blowing release by the innovative lab, of how realistic talking head models of people and even portrait paintings can be generated from a few or a single shot.

The co-founder of the top illustration agency Handsome Frank wrote a must-read post for freelancers and the most anticipated game of the year, Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding now has a full-length trailer.
