Young Kids Changing The Face of Manhattan

I thought this article was so interesting.

NEW YORK -- A decade ago, 3-year-old Theo Carlston may have been considered part of an endangered species: a white toddler in Manhattan.

Hackers target Facebook apps - private data stolen

Hackers have turned their attention to Facebook's hundreds of independent applications. The results are not terribly surprising, but do not tell a good tale: app developers don't seem to know a thing about basic security, and are putting private user information at risk.

I decided over the last couple of days that I am going to attend the University of Utah SJ Quinney College of Law in the fall.  So I will be staying in SLC!

Clothing of the Future (in the 1930s)

Embedded Video

I thought this video was quite funny!  It makes me wonder what some designers would do for clothing in the future.  There was a Project Runway challenge where they designed clothes for the future but it was really weird...I guess we will just have to wait and see :)

This year it was quite confusing to me that Easter was coming so quickly.  The holiday that is normally in April, is now in March.  I was perusing through the news articles that I normally read in the morning and I stumbled upon this: The Easter Bunny Comes Early This Year--But Why?  This article explains everything!  Thank goodness I now know why!

What's Your Six-Word Memoir?


Tonight I went to a refreshingly brief reading. The Six-Word Memoir Slam to celebrate the release of Not Quite What I Was Planning: The Six-Word Memoir from Writers Famous and Obscure. My friends Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, editors at Smith magazine, edited the book. It's most famously inspired by a six-word memoir by Ernest Hemingway, which some people call his greatest work: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

Larry and Rachel managed to get about 80% of the crowd to participate--mainly by incenting them with free drink tickets and by throwing Nerds candy at them for reading! Great tactic! Duly noted for the next List Slam I put on (March 5 at Adaptive Path Interaction Design Firm in San Francisco, where you too can read your to-do list out loud in public).

But back to the six-word memoir: What's yours? It's important to remember that your six-word memoir will be always-changing. The six words that capture your life tonight may be outdated in a week, and that's okay, you can just write a new one then.

Here are the ones that occurred to me tonight (which I did not read aloud):

Started holiday, never stopped promoting it

Jeans too tight, wore them anyway

Too many blogs, not enough time

Merged words, met some quirky souls

And on and on. . .

Leave six-word memoirs in the comments and check them on Smith.

Law School Decisions

This whole law school decision thing, is going to be the hardest decision of my life.  A couple things happened this week to make the decision much harder:

-I was accepted into the University of Utah SJ Quinney College of Law
-I did not get a spot in the John Marshall Scholars Program, however I did get a $15,000 scholarship/grant 

Right now all of the schools are pretty much the same when it comes to tuition and living expenses.  So that doesn't help at all because I was hoping that the cost would knock out at least one of the schools, but no such luck.
