For those who have not yet seen it, or want to see it again, LA Opera proudly presents The Anonymous Lover (L’Amant Anonyme), an unjustly neglected 1780 chamber opera by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a pioneering Black composer who was a contemporary of Mozart. His comic romance tells the story of Léontine, a beautiful young widow who has become disillusioned with love. Much to her surprise, she receives a steady stream of letters and gifts from an unknown man professing his undying passion. Her friend Valcour tells her he has no interest in romance. But now, after hiding his true feelings for years, Valcour has the courage to reveal that he himself is her devoted secret admirer. Will his confession sway a woman sworn to resist all affairs of the heart? Available only through November 29, 2020.

A virtual company-wide hackathon is worth the investment

At our annual company retreat, we usually run a hackathon for our dev team. But this year (at our virtual retreat), we decided to expand the hackathon framework to the entire company. We took the basic premise of the hackathon — deep work on a single project — and used it to accelerate our progress toward company priorities. The entire company was split into teams that dedicated their full brain power to projects that feed our company-wide goals. The results were powerful.

The hackathon model outside of development

To do a hackathon outside of a software development team takes a little planning, but the basic premise is the same. People get together and do concentrated work on a single topic or project to make more progress than they would when distracted by their everyday workload.

To make this work, we broke the company into departmental and interdepartmental teams. Each of

Now that the debate about remote work is over, it’s time for managers to set new goals for managing the workforce of 2021. Many teams have never met in person and may never work side by side. Some employees joined the company via Zoom and connect with colleagues exclusively via a laptop screen.

The Last GenerationThe Last GenerationA look back at 2013-2020, the age of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Virtual reality has become much easier to jump into these days. Headsets are becoming cheaper and cheaper and some, like the Quest 2, don’t even need a powerful PC. But not that long ago VR was expensive, hard to hook up, and a mess. And PSVR was an imperfect but exciting solution.

On paper, PSVR sounded too good to be true. Launched in 2016, it cost only $400.
