I graduate in December so I have to start thinking about where I want to work. I could work at Entire, which would be nice because there are so many cool people there. Ev and Allison want me to come to Hanover, which is about the nicest place I can think of to live but I don’t know if I’ll find any jobs I like there. There are some interesting companies in Boston, like Ars Digita, but I wouldn’t want to live in the city and commuting would suck. Decisions, decisions…
The Got Milk ads have always bothered me because I know milk is such unhealthy stuff. I finally found a decent anti-dairy website. My favorite quote: “I would call milk perhaps the most unhealthful vehicle for calcium that one could possibly imagine, which is the only thing people really drink it for, but whenever you challenge existing dogma… people are resistant.” –Neal Barnard, M.D.
“All you need’s a story. Voice is a miracle. Voice is what happens when you shitcan the cover-up. Deep-six the conspiracy of silence. There’ll be plenty of time for that later.” Everyone should subscribe to Entropy Gradient Reversals.
“There are 5.6 billion people in the world today. That leaves 5.4 billion people who have not yet selected their operating system.” —John “Maddog” Hall
“There was a day when I was in fifth grade when I was walking down the street with Sam Witten, who was the guy a little bit older who lived around the corner who I admired, who seemed more worldly. And I was trying to explain to him this problem I was having in thinking about how to talk to other people. And the problem was that… I was very aware that in different kinds of groups of people, I could talk to them in this way where they would open up to me and they would like me, but the person I was presenting them with was a very partial version of my self… And I couldn’t figure out, I kept turning it over and over in my head. Which was the real self? The one I was presenting to him? Or the one I was presenting to the tougher kids? Or the one I was presenting to my parents?” Feed interviews Ira Glass. Glass is host and co-producer of This American Life, one of my favorite radio shows.
