Link Crushes for the Week of December 2nd
Each week we curate the best of the Internet. Everything you missed, all in one place! This week we discovered a lovely Nelson Mandela playlist on PRX, took at look at a CodePen meme where everyone shared how they would approach creating a simple blue box (a peek at each person’s code & varied approach to the task is quite fascinating), explored where the stereotype that videogames are for boys comes from, celebrated some Wonder Woman news we have been waiting on forever and more!
