This is such a good product feature video. Great script, terrific real-language explanations, and clear iconography. What an awesome example of product marketing!

I’ve donated five things every week for over a year. It’s tough but worth it—you can do it, too.
Donation Sundays are one of several minimalist life hacks that I use to reduce my possessions. Find out how you can try them, too.

“This is like the best first date I’ve been on in my life.” <-- You’re telling me. I was grinning like an idiot while watching this. So good.

I have high hopes for +Uber and hope it can improve its culture—the service itself is just so good.
2014 has been a year of tremendous growth for Uber. It was just a year ago that Uber was operating in 60 cities and 21 countries - today we are in over 250

You may have noticed me using emojis for travel nomenclature like this: MDW ✈️ BNA. This is why.
Have you ever wondered how to meet new people using online services like IFTTT (If This Then That) and some creative digital trickery and emoji symbols?
