We recently spoke with Tony Hue, Community Manager for Disqus, about how he builds weekly email newsletters for the company.

We’re finding that more and more people these days are sending newsletters curated by teams, as opposed to just a single contributor — see Rails Weekly. Having more than one person contributing can diversify content and in turn, reach a bigger audience. Even after launching our team support, we still get requests for new integrations that allow teams to easily capture what is being read and discussed. One of these involves a favourite team collaboration tool of ours, Slack.

If you have shelter from nature’s elements, heat to warm your body and food consistently in your belly, you are one of the fortunate ones.

We’re not all so lucky. In fact, Vancouver’s homeless has doubled from last year. So, besides the shelter and warmth, the most basic need of all, food, was a struggle to find day-to-day. Continue reading »
