The New Influentials →
There seems to be a bit of a witch hunt that’s been generated by this article in Fast Company against theories about Influentials suggested by thinkers like Malcolm Gladwell. ‘They don’t exist!’ explains the author Clive Thompson and this idea seems to be supported by a bunch of ‘toldyouso’ bloggers who would traditionally not be cast as traditional Influencers. Inferiority complex, anyone? Or...

Yesterday the NY Times shed some light on the case of the million or so iPhones that had been sold by Apple since its release seven months ago but remain off the radar, activated on neither AT&T nor Apple’s European carriers. Of the 3.75 million iPhones that had been purchased through the end of December, less than 2 million of them have been registered by AT&T. The article explains...
I’ve been around this block twice now. Looking for something. A clue....– this guy.
Idea: I think instead of using quotation marks, we should follow ironic statements with (i), and sincere ones with (s) when there’s a chance of ambiguity.

A 2 Girls, 1 Cup Parody Worth Watching →
jakoblodwick: This was amazing! My favorite parts were the intro, Cup’s mouth, and when they looped the audio. Reblogged from erockappel, who said: Parodies of “2 Girls, 1 Cup” are SOOOO played out, yet people keep on making them. When I saw the title of this on the ballot at last night’s Channel 101 screening, I cringed. I was so ready to hate it. Unfortunately, it was...
