what i'm reading...

Malcolm Gladwell on the power of Entrepreneurial Underdogs.  I love that he talks about people and companies who have come through great tragedy and have one of two reactions to it. Here it is in Inc Magazine:  It's go time. Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 3.35.55 PM

Sumpto:  (a company I have great faith in) is really upping the ante with regard to rewarding college students for their interactions with Brands on Facebook and Twitter. It's a brilliant concept, really.

what i'm reading (a weekly update)

inspired by my dear friend Janie, (seen here dropping the cricket set...cutie!)

i henceforth bring you the weekly update of websites and content that i'm paying attention to right now!


 

the Dodo: a rad website with tons of cute gifs of animals and also important information about animal welfare today

Fancy: i could waste an entire afternoon paging through all this stuff i never knew i needed.  and sometimes convincing myself i do need it.  it's like the modern dan hammacher schlammer.

aVC: i enjoy fred wilson's musings on early stage tech and life in general.

BWEST: seems crazy but this is still a resource that tons of people don't use in the tech industry...almost feel like i'm letting my secret out by posting it here!

theSkimm: a quick easy update on the world's news. delivered to your inbox every morning. in a snarky, fun way.  i'm lookin at you, ms janie.


 

....5 more coming at ya next week, y'all.  

 

changing of the tides...

i just wrapped my third year of duty at the yoga journal conference here in NY and for the first year, i noticed something dramatically different than other years: many of the most 'famous' yoga teachers and students there were famous due to their social media followings...primarily instagram. see, instagram is a great vehicle to bust a quick asana or a 15-second sequence and the yoga community is quite strong and vibrant on it.

i'm not sure i'm ready to make an observation about whether this was a good thing or bad thing yet but certainly a changing of the tides.

with that, may i recommend you follow my dear sweet teacher, @kathrynbudig on INSTA! ha!
