It snowed this morning. It’s the first snow in Boulder this season, though we saw some in the mountains last week. Most people knew it was coming, though some, I’m sure, were caught off guard, expecting several more weeks of Indian Summer or at least the paltry semblance of Autumn with which Colorado likes to […]

Statistics, Fact Checking, and the Failure of the Media

4 October, 2012 (11:41) | Media, New Media, Politics | 2 comments

Cartoon drawn by Patrick Chappatte published by the New York Times. The web is atwitter with the sound of politics this morning, and while I’m loathe to add my voice to flood of information, let me assure you that I will not be spending any time discussing the candidates or their campaigns. Instead, I want to draw […]

Thank You for Your Honesty

A photo posted by ReShonda Tate Billingly to her daughter’s Facebook page. There’s a lot of argument over age restrictions on Facebook, Google accounts, and on the internet in general. Most of the conversation seems to center around who has the right to control their information, and whether or not the age restrictions should be […]

The Whole Shebang

It’s now been nearly a month since Ignite Chanukah 2011. Due to the holidays, a variety of travel plans, and the amazing job the video guy did of putting together the recordings, Ignite Chanukah videos (incorrectly labeled as 2012 instead of 2011) have finally been posted. There are several highlights that are definitely worth watching. […]

Filling Out the Forms

11 May, 2011 (08:54) | New Media, Social Commentary | 4 comments

I sit there, casually entertained by banal conversation granted import by the irregularity of the event. It is, if nothing more, a dinner party designed as much to break the monotony of life as it is to celebrate the event in question. Filling the periphery of the evening are a collection of folks—and despite their […]

Fuck You Facebook

Facebook is Evil. I was halfway through writing something of value when my rage and anger got the better of me. Instead of that, I’ve decided to rail against Facebook for a few minutes, if for no other reason than to vent. As I slid to various websites doing research, my facebook user icon kept […]

Passion, Ignition, Blast Off

Ef Rodriguez performs at Ignite Boulder 6. (photo/Andrew Hyde) “Hipsters generally seem to lack passion,” he explained. “It’s this overriding malaise. They get excited about things, but they just as quickly seem to drop them.” I thought about it for a second, acknowledging the various hipsters I know and considering my life recently. “I generally […]

A Cut Below

2 July, 2009 (18:43) | New Media | 9 comments

Tonight marks Ignite Boulder V, an event so enormously popular that they’ve moved to the Boulder Theater and begun charging for tickets. Despite purchasing my ticket well in advance, I’m not attending in protest to the way in which my presentation was treated. Several weeks ago, when submission and voting began, I was confident I […]

Circumcisial Evidence

The first week of July boasts a bevy of excellent events. On July 3rd, Wilco plays Red Rocks. On the Fourth of July, I barbecue and release my CD Exchange album. And, perhaps most importantly, on July 2nd, Ignite Boulder 5 comes live to a venue near me. By the end of Ignite 4, I […]

Anthology Anthropology

The Sunday New York Times never fails to deliver fascinating writing. Rather than an in depth article on the latest outbreak of war or an insider’s guide to to the latest trend, the most interesting piece of the April 5, 2009 edition was the two paragraph conclusion tucked at the tail of A.O. Scott’s “In […]
