yourmirror: n. the act of deciding whether to give a departing acquaintance a hug or a handshake, calculated by measuring your relative orbits, how long it takes your signals to bounce back, and the proximity of a close friend who just gave them a hug, whose massive gravitational force could slingshot you into a long-distance wave. dictionaryofobscuresorrows

The Media Carta
We, the undersigned, are troubled by the way information flows and the way meaning is produced in our society. WE HAVE LOST CONFIDENCE in what we are seeing, hearing and reading: too much infotainment and not enough news; too many outlets telling the same stories; too much commercialism and too much hype. Every day, this commercial information system distorts our view of the world. WE HAVE...

Hi my name is Hanna and I'm a radio addict.
NPR has been running reruns of a lot of their shows this August (I get it, even the radio gods need a holiday or two) but it makes me sad. Same goes for my podcasts - rebroadcasts are great unless you’re like me and have literally listened to every episode of all of your podcasts… Does anyone have some great podcasts for me?
David Van Zandt to Lead New School in New York -... →
The contrasts between the two leaders are immediately apparent. Dr. Van Zandt is an academic, not a politician, and has a reputation for driving change through low-key, data-driven discussion and consensus. Mr. Kerrey is the first to admit he loves controversy and welcomes passionate debate. sounds good to meeee

4nyc: Wait…is that the L train coming? Yes? No? Maybe? How about possibly. To find out if a train is approaching, you can try the classic NYC thing; which is leaning over the side of the subway platform just hoping to spot a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Another option is to just play it cool and wait for a artificial breeze from the distance. Out of nowhere you will say “I...

Just because you can doesn't mean you should
Sometimes I think the internet’s amateur culture is a little out of hand. I’m as big of a design nerd as you can get but even I don’t care about your charts & infographics anymore. Seriously people, you aren’t as witty as you think you are, half of your charts don’t make sense and your work itself is sloppy. The reason infographics has become so popular is that it...

A hormonal treatment to prevent ambiguous genitalia can now be offered to women who may be carrying such infants. It’s not without health risks, but to its critics those are of small consequence compared with this notable side effect: The treatment might reduce the likelihood that a female with the condition will be homosexual. Further, it seems to increase the chances that she will...
