Hustle at Work and at Play, #ProlificOlympics Recap
It was a great year in Russia, but an even better winter Olympics in DUMBO, with the first annual winter Olympics taking place on Thursday February 20th, at 4pm. Bobby Emamian kicked things off, wishing every athlete and all represented countries a safe and fruitful games. Countries, bringing their most qualified athletes, came together to compete in 9 events. Italy, Switzerland, Iran, USA, and Iceland each had 5 athletes representing them. The gold went to the outstanding men from team Italy, followed by USA taking silver, and the bronze went to the unpopular men on team Switzerland. There was much controversy leading up to the games on Thursday. During the preliminaries, team Switzerland brought the rules and ethics into question, leading to #COATS to be formed (the Collision Against Team Swiss). Needless to say, the most creative icing from the preliminaries went to #COATS. Prolific and the Olympic committee would like to thank all the athletes for the best games DUMBO has ever seen. (Check out @weareprolific on Twitter for pictures and on site updates from the games.)

Things We’re Into and You Should Be too
Industry Updates/Interesting things
As most cool kids do, we try to be in the know on all things exciting and relevant. It’s been a busy year already for the mobile and tech world, and here are just a few things that caught our eye – Ashton Kutcher does it again, proving there is no industry that doesn’t catch his eye. Seems like he caught the tech bug when he played Steve. Speaking of Steve everyone who’s anyone in the mobile world may have heard of the happenings at Mobile World Congress last week. It was a great week for mobile, but an even better year for startups. Many industry leaders are doing great new things; Samsung has released its latest gadget the Galaxy S5. But hey, if you feel that none of the available smart phones are for you, your friends at Google are a step ahead with project Ara. For all of our developer friends in the out there, we haven’t forgotten you, there are some exciting things being released by GitHub just for you! On a more animated note, just in case you need to catch up on some greats, Disney has housed quite a bit of nostalgia in one place for ya. Enjoy!
