Here in the U.S., the 4th of July is kind of a big deal. It’s a time for barbecuing, relaxing by a body of water, oohing and aahing at fireworks, and generally eating, drinking, and being merry with loved ones.
But in the rest of the world, it’s just another Thursday. And we know our community comes from all over. So this week, we’ve got two great projects that feel especially relevant on this festive (for Americans) day, and one that’s just plain great, no matter what day it is.
