If you’ve ever been to The Petersen, you know what a “must-see” attraction it is, and not just for car-lovers. Some of the world’s most iconic and rare automobiles are kept here on display to help tell the story of our city, which was built around and for the automobile. So you’ll see the Batmobile, but you’ll also see an original Model T.
There’s only one small catch: The museum actually won’t be open until December, on its 20th birthday, after its massive renovation is complete. The cost is said to exceed $125 million, and the redesign includes a building facade of chrome silver ribbons that will be lit from beneath, evoking the “image of speed and organic curves of a coach-built automobile.”Check out this cool time-lapse video of construction progress.
What else can you expect? Oh, not much, just TWENTY-TWO NEW GALLERIES OF CARS, CARS, AND MORE CARS. Plus, all the interactive technology to put you in the driver’s seat of automobiles from your wildest fantasies. You’ll be able to check out a revolving collection of BMW’s “Art Cars,” designed by artists like Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Jenny Holzer, and more. Watch how a Maserati gets built from concept to completion, and take a spin one of several legendary racing circuits in a virtual reality driving simulator. That’s what’s up.
Before you visit, make sure you download The Petersen app. You wouldn’t go into a 3D movie without your 3D glasses, why would you go into this epic museum experience without the app that opens up new ways to explore, engage, and interact with the exhibits?

It’s no secret that we LOVE dogs (especially rescues) so to commemorate this special day, we figured instead of sharing all our pooches’ photos with you, we’d try to implement our shared advocacy for man’s best friend by brainstorming some great ways we can incorporate our passion into our practice. What we mean is, are there ways we can use these tools to make our neighborhood a more dog friendly place? Can we design a platform to propagate the benefits of hanging out with a dog? Here are some of our ideas.
Before I was a copywriter, I worked as an office manager for a production company. When we would hire new people, I often got sucked into the role of “interviewer” because of how unassuming and/or intimidating I was or wasn’t. I really looked forward to it, not because it put me in a position of power, but because I could pretend to make notes on the applicant’s resume while really all I was doing was tally-marking every time they used the word, “like.” Do you realize how much more attractive, intelligent, and cool you would appear to be if you could eliminate this word from your vocabulary? Like, seriously. Now I’m going to talk about what you look like when you hold your iPhone.
Straight from the O+O Lab, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our app, ROGO!
Have you ever had a burning question, but lacked the right language to express it? Without getting too “meta” on you this Tuesday morning, how do you ask a person what something is, if you don’t know what the thing is? These are the kinds of things that keep the O+O team up at night. And because we are all a part of this epic mission to make the world a better interactive and connected experience, we built a platform for users to express and resolve their curiosity. The more we can encourage curiosity and wonderment, the more we can exercise our imaginations. Trust us when we say, imagination is where it’s at.

Ask and answer visual questions instantly, and earn rewards for it. So whether you’re dropping knowledge, saving the day, or just don’t know–ROGO! is your go-to app for all the answers you need when you’re at a loss for words. Download here!
I just started to work with Xcode and trying to add a Subversion folder was a pain. So I decided to write about it and describe all the steps in order to help other people who have to set up a Subversion in Xcode.
