TIL: Tallinn is a Tech Powerhouse

A futuristic cityscape of Tallinn, Estonia, showcasing its transformation into a tech powerhouse. Image generated by DALL-E.

In recent years, Tallinn (the capital of Estonia and the answer to Globle: Capitals on Nov 9), has transformed into a significant tech hub and is home to successful startups like Skype, Wise, and Bolt. The country's digital journey began over three decades ago, focusing on a digital-first strategy after gaining independence in 1991. Estonia's small size has been advantageous, allowing for quick implementation of tech innovations and a streamlined process for startups. The e-Estonia initiative has introduced several digital government services since 2000, including automated childcare benefits and remote notary services. The education system also strongly supports this tech ecosystem, offering high-quality IT and engineering programs. Estonia's approach to embracing technology and continuous learning from past challenges has been key to its success in the tech sector.

Game Updates

As of this past week, you can now sign into your Trainwreck Labs account on Globle: Capitals using Discord. The same feature will be available on the original Globle game by the end of this week. Another priority for next week: Chronogram for fictional characters! If you have an idea for a name for this game, let us know in the Discord server, because I’m struggling think of one.

Player Showcase

Neognathae got you down? Players on the Discord server showed us their creativity this week with some new custom emojis for Bird Hell. Don’t know what Bird Hell is? Clearly you haven’t played enough Metazooa!
