That's how Seattle does an eclipse 📸


  • Bicycles don’t grow on trees. But you might find one up there anyway. Seattle’s new dockless bikes have been showing up in super strange places around the city, well documented by Seattle Mag. Oh, and good news for those of you without smart phones: You can now use cash to rent Limebikes.
  • The future is female. After this year’s local primary elections, it’s looking like at least 10 cities in Western Washington will have female political leaders. “We haven’t seen anything approaching this level of activity with women in politics in 30 years,” said Lucinda Guinn of the women’s political group EMILY’s List. 💪 (The Seattle Times)
  • Free speech or hate speech? When tech sites decided to stop hosting a neo-Nazi website last week, a 20-year-old Washington tech entrepreneur stepped in to help. Why? He says he’s standing up for the right to free speech. (The Seattle Times)
  • ‘They were mourning by Bedazzling their faces.’ When local artist Briar Bates was dying of cancer, she made an unusual request: that her friends perform a synchronized water ballet in Volunteer Park’s kiddie pool after she died. They did it, and the show was full of colorful bathing suits, bubbles and smiles. (The Seattle Times)
  • What’s it like growing up in rural Washington as a Muslim immigrant? Seattle Met’s Hayat Norimine shares her experience in this insightful long-form essay. (Seattle Met)
