This week on the Wonderful: Oscars, online communities, and penguins!
Social Media Person Gets (to Hold) an Oscar (via Dolby Labs on Facebook)
One of the social media team at Dolby happened to be flying home from the Oscars on the same flight as Brave director Mark Andrews and producer Katherine Sarafian. And she got to hold their Oscar. I would have died. So lucky.

Billing itself as a Pinterest where you can buy things, Kumbuya is an interesting new exercise in online communities. When you sign up for the site, you’re prompted to join or create a tribe where likeminded people can discuss shared interests. Companies and users can approach Tribe Leaders if they have something they’d like to sell to the tribe. It’s curated, concentrated targeting and it seems like a great idea to me.
Etsy Find of the Week: Penguin Eternity Scarf
I love scarves and I’m so happy that I have a reason to wear them so much in the ever-changing microclimates of the Bay Area. What I’ve found are especially versatile are lightweight scarves that can provide a little or a lot of coziness, depending on what you need. The eternity scarves from PoePoePurses are just the job, and this Penguin one is perfectly professional (the power red) and fun (the penguins) at the same time.
