For Flipboard junkies . . .

Flipboard is an iOS and Android app that you can use to browse articles from your favourite publishing sources.

Just three months ago, they enabled viewers to become curators, I.e. you could start curating and publicising your own virtual magazine (on the Flipboard platform). Give it a try.

I’m now curating two magazines that are quite relevant to aerospace types:

(1) Free Spirit – Everything of interest to those who want to live and work on their terms, free of The Man!
(2) Fly Ahead – Drones, UAVs, independent aerospace firms, and the free-minded professionals who want to take aerospace forward and won’t settle for the status quo!

Feel free to subscribe to either/both of them! Just download the free app, and search on the magazine names.

And/or start curating your own magazines!
