Check out all the good stuff that we're talking about at the Made by Many offices. On the agenda this week: designing for the ageing population, open door user testing, documentaries, mockumentaries and what makes us LOL.

What are we doing to become better workers/human beings?
We're supporting The Age of No Retirement event at the OXO Tower, Britain's first national debate and exhibition to discover the value in society in which people are living and working longer.
