3rd Place at Henry Street
fun fact: this one was me!
at least three of these books were former stoopbooks that i took home with me; one came from a white elephant gift exchange; others i don’t even remember buying.
they were all taken within two hours of me putting them outside.
Feel like you’ve been transported back to dial-up today? Dozens of Internet companies are participating in a symbolic slowdown of their sites in a protest for net neutrality. Netflix, Etsy, and Tumblr (to name just a few) joined BattleForTheNet.com in its “Internet Slowdown Day.”
I always enjoy how Tumblr forces us to pay attention. It’s usually a technical intervention to prompt a community one. And I know (and like) the people running the Battle for the Net. Good on them.
this was a really really good move by tumblr. i did the thing, to make the spinning stop. (and, you know, because it’s important.)

pizza pie chart
- Michelle: today I learned that our coworkers prefer pepperoni over mushrooms and onions on their pizza
- Me: good to know
- Michelle: I have a hard time not turning pizza consumption into "data"
- Me: is it because pizza already looks like a pie chart?
- Michelle: yes--it's already there! how much pizza did we eat? this much.
