I study people, technology, and the worlds they make

My friends are media geniuses

First I made it onto BoingBoing. Then Jess’ Sad Guys on Trading Floors got nominated for a Webby. Then, I discovered that Princeton professor, Renaissance historian, fellow ex-American Scholar board member, and all-around nice guy Anthony Grafton has finally done something he can be proud of: his son Sam– who I don’t think is named after the character in Shane— had a hilarious letter read on The Bugle, my favorite podcast of all time. (Bugle 70, near the end. It’s the letter about penis-shaped helicopters. I’ve never heard John and Andy laugh so much at a letter.) Clearly our eventual collective dominance of all media is inevitable.

  2. The zipper dress made it, too???
