  • I think I just woke up in alternate universe…@Veken just told me he’s upset Tumblr isn’t appreciated enough in our household. Huh? #
  • Meeting tons of artists tonight offline that I’ve only previously encountered online. #
  • Oh no! I just saw a hipster in Bushwick wearing Tevas. Nooooo! Please don’t let those come back in!!! (via @Ginike) #
  • Bought an artwork by MN-based artists Broken Crow of a blue squirrel…did I ever mention I’m obsessed with those blue rodents? #
  • Feel like a failure…Co-Modify was hard (& required much more planning than I was able to give it)…apologies to @thatwaszen & @platea #

  • RT @bhoggard @stevelambert: Huh? NYT writes about storefront billboards…never mentions they’re illegal! Outraged! http://redirx.com/?s05f #
  • Is everyone’s blog getting slammed by spam comments that are much cleverer than before (only one link, usually YouTube). #
  • Ok, who spams blogs with links to Jean Luc Godard films on YouTube? I guess there high-minded spammers nowadays. #
  • One other thing that resonated with me today @WhiteHouse meetings: We MUST make Arts&Culture a Cabinet level position. (via @MarcSchil) YES! #
