Great, now I have to worry about male virgins too?
It was this site that convinced me to only comment using my real name, after being called out for a stupid, unnecessary jab under my old pseudonym, NicFit.
In my case, it has made me more careful and thoughtful (I think). For others, not so much!
I doubt that Reckitt-Benckeiser will be promoting their production of Frank's Red Hot and D-Con rat poison in an ad anytime soon.
I love the Times (mostly) but they are so far behind in digital strategy. It's a shame because they truly lead the way in interaction design, but how are they going to pay for it? Gawker realized that the future is in social platforms that enable highly targeted advertising and lots of native content, so they launched Kinja. (Notice how display advertising has all but disappeared there?) The Times is still fiddling with how many articles you get before you have to delete your cookies.
Not a good sign.
It's sort of offensive to frame the Airbnb thing as a movement. A bunch of people with a lot of options about where to sleep making a killing while everyone else fights over a rapidly dwindling housing stock does not equal migrant farm workers fighting for fair working conditions.
There is nothing in over half a century of New York history that entitles everyone to grab any housing stock they can find and run impromptu hotels. It's illegal, and it should be.
What is it with everyone obsessing over sleep lately? Between this video (which has more to do with "change blindness" than sleep, by the way) and WNYC's annoying promo with one of their many high-pitched white dude voices saying, "I sleep so so so so so badly," like WTF? You want to sleep more, drink more brown liquor or smoke more pot or whatever.
These are really hilarious. Thanks!
Except for here.
Come join the group!
Also for the record, I hope that this at least opens up a dialog with the developer about what kind of retail tenant would actually benefit the community. But the Trader Joe's angle gets the people talking!
