Powers of Two: Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs: Joshua Wolf Shenk: 9781848545922: Amazon.com: Books
Lennon and McCartney, the Wright brothers, Marie and Pierre Curie - despite the persistent romantic myth of the lone genius, some of the greatest creative work has resulted from collaboration between two people. Shenk analyses how the most innovative pairings have worked, and identifies the common journey taken by scientific and artistic minds as they exchange and refine ideas, before arguing that the fluidity and flexibility of the pair makes it the primary creative unit.

Collaborative Circles: Friendship Dynamics and Creative Work: Michael P. Farrell: 9780226238678: AmazonSmile: Books
Many artists, writers, and other creative people do their best work when collaborating within a circle of like-minded friends. In a unique study, Michael P. Farrell looks at the group dynamics in six collaborative circles, and gives vivid narrative accounts of each: the French Impressionists; Sigmund Freud and his friends; C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the Inklings; social reformers Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony; the Fugitive poets; and the writers Joseph Conrad and Ford Maddox Ford.

RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion - RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion
The vision behind RITMO is to reveal the basic cognitive mechanism(s) underlying human rhythm, using music, motion and audiovisual media as empirical points of departure. 

The research will be highly interdisciplinary, combining methods from musicology, psychology and informatics to study rhythm as a fundamental property that shapes and underpins human cognition, behaviour and culture.

Pipenv: Python Development Workflow for Humans

Pipenv is a tool that aims to bring the best of all packaging worlds (bundler, composer, npm, cargo, yarn, etc.) to the Python world. Windows is a first--class citizen, in our world.

It automatically creates and manages a virtualenv for your projects, as well as adds/removes packages from your Pipfile as you install/uninstall packages. It also generates the ever--important Pipfile.lock, which is used to produce deterministic builds.
