Future of StoryTelling559,379The Virtual Roundtable weekly series continues on Wednesday 1/23 with OK Go frontman, Damian Kulash. Deemed the "first post-Internet band", OK Go is responsible for creating some of the most iconic, viral music videos of all time. Damian's FoST Film offers a play-by-play of the band's farewell to major-label funding and subsequent pursuit of corporate sponsorship—and never at the expense of artistic integrity. Watch it here:  http://futureofstorytelling.org/film/?id=4What are some ways that emerging storytellers can initiate fruitful relationships with corporate partners or marketers? How heavily does digital technology, especially interactive and mobile technology, play into the process of artistic creation?

Paige Keaton54,103I shared this circle earlier and realized it was lacking a lot of women that I have circled. I went through my other circles and found about 300 more just glancing. I have added these women and would like to share it with you.  Be kind to the women I am sharing with you today. I don't share circles often but I hear a lot that G+ is mostly male. I have spent a lot of time finding good women. This is not a porn circle if that is what you are into. This is NOT a HOT WOMEN  circle. This is a circle of real women who have a G+ page just like me.  #circleshare   #circlesharing   #womenofgoogleplus  2013-10-30 17:36:0450023821CC G+

Matt Gibson920,723Ok so we are going to try something different here...As you may have noticed, I am sharing a circle of really cool people and pages for you to add to your circles.  If you want cool content from cool people - add the circle!  It's that simple!  If YOU would like your profile to be shared to almost 1 million people, leave me a comment that tells me a little bit about YOU.  What do you like?  What is your favorite music?  Where do you live?  Let's get to know each other!  What are your social network or website addresses (simply posting a link without telling me about YOU won't make the cut btw)?Here is an example:Hi!  My name is +Matt Gibson and I am an independent artist working on my 1st album!  I like all forms of music but I tend to lean towards metal.  I play guitar, piano, drums and saxophone as well as sing!  You can check out my website at www.crimsonsymphony.com and you can subscribe to my +YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/crimsonsymphonymusicI like books by great authors like Tolkien, +TERRY BROOKS  and Raymond Feist among others.  I read a lot of non-fiction as well on subjects like business, marketing, antiques and tech.I am an amateur gardener and I aspire to own my own beehives.I like reading your posts because you are such a handsome fellow with that long wavy hair and manly beard and....ahem ok you can skip that part unless you really mean it LOL.Now that's not hard is it?  Tell me about yourself and get your profile shared to a million people!  Not a bad deal eh?New and OLD friends can participate but no cheating or dumb comments like "add me" or "hi".  You should all thank +Amanda Blain for giving me this idea to steal for our benefit btw... so let the fun and networking begin!!PS If your comment is really cool you may find yourself in the next Cool People circle and who knows, maybe we will become friends or colleagues? 2013-10-03 00:47:03249721243CC G+

[We lost a good one today.]

One of the best. I reference this scene at least once per year.

"Those are the things I miss the most. The little idiosyncrasies that only I know about. That's what made her my wife. Oh, and she had the goods on me, too. She knew all my little peccadilloes. 

"People call these things imperfections, but they're not. Oh, that's the good stuff. And then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds. 

"You're not perfect, sport. And let me save you the suspense: This girl you met, she isn't perfect either. But the question is whether or not you're perfect for each other. That's the whole deal. That's what intimacy is all about."

[It took a few days, but now I know why Robin Williams' death hit me so hard.]

These past couple days I've felt raw. I've felt uncomfortable, unsettled, distressed, on edge. I haven't been sleeping well, tossing and turning beneath my sheets, my mind racing.  

I've been unusually upset over Robin Williams' death since I heard the news, but I couldn't quite pinpoint why. And despite this seething unease, and contrary to my normal, empath self, I hadn't yet let out a primal sob of mourning as one might expect. 

But then...last night. Like a startling, sobering break through the fourth wall, last night my Facebook feed was flooded not with the normal, banal status updates of gym boasting and selfies, but with conversely weighted, gut-wrenching news story after news story from around the world. It hit me on all sides, relentlesslys... more »

Can someone with more engineering smarts figure out how I can fix this?

My rolling rack is suddenly slumping on one side. Seems the right-side clamp doesn't want to hold the bar at its height anymore, and it slowly droops down on one side. 

And no, fewer dresses is not a viable option. ahem

[Has everything on the internet already been done?]

It's pretty common among those of us in the tech entrepreneurial scene to lamentingly feel like we missed the boat; that anything worth doing has already been done. This piece on +Medium gives a refreshing reminder that that's only because it's hard to imagine what hasn't yet been imagined. And our work here has only just begun.

"Yet if we consider what we have gained online in the last 30 years, this abundance smells almost miraculous. We got: Instant connection with our friends and family anywhere, a customizable stream of news whenever we want it, zoomable 3D maps of most cities of the world, an encyclopedia we can query with spoken words, movies we can watch on a flat slab in our pocket, a virtual everything store that will deliver next day — to name only six out of thousands that could bementio... more »

"But, but…here is the thing. In terms of the internet, nothing has happened yet. The internet is still at the beginning of its beginning. If we could climb into a time machine and journey 30 years into the future, and from that vantage look back to today, we’d realize that most of the greatest products running the lives of citizens in 2044 were not invented until after 2014. People in the future will look at their holodecks, and wearable virtual reality contact lenses, and downloadable avatars, and AI interfaces, and say, oh, you didn’t really have the internet (or whatever they’ll call it) back then."

What are you still holding out for? What do you think the future of tech will be?

[Why do we always have to be doing something?]

It was such a nice day out that all I wanted to do was just be outside this evening enjoying the warm and weightless air.

So I grabbed my kindle. Made sure my phone was charged. Contemplated bringing my laptop, and considered what I might work on to keep myself busy seated out in my backyard--even though I was totally burnt out looking at a screen all day. This gathering of gadgets to keep me occupied was compulsive.

Then I remembered that it's absolutely okay to just be outside doing nothing but nothing at all. Unengaged. Still mind. Still body. Letting being outside be reason enough.

Funny how we're so conditioned to think we have to always be doing something.

I've been unusually upset over Robin Williams' death since I heard the news, but I couldn't quite pinpoint why. And despite this seething unease, and contrary to my normal, empath self, I hadn't yet let out a primal sob of mourning as one might expect. 

But then...last night. Like a startling, sobering break through the fourth wall, last night my Facebook feed was flooded not with the normal, banal status updates of gym boasting and selfies, but with conversely weighted, gut-wrenching news story after news story from around the world. It hit me on all sides, relentlessly slamming me with a right hook, then a left hook, then a right hook, then a left. Punch after punch. 

There were journalism articles about the teenage Michael Brown being shot dead in the street. About his grieving community being further beaten down by police, about them peacefully fighting for justice, all while knowing that they once again, likely won't get it. Because they're poor, and black. 

Then after that, in painful contrast, a story of the time Robin Williams burst into Christopher Reeve's hospital room dressed as a Russian proctologist sent to perform a rectal exam, just to get a laugh out of his old friend facing the very real possibility of death. 

After that there was the story about the young gay man savagely beaten unconscious this week and left to die in a San Francisco park. About my community back home alarmed and frighten by the rising rate of violent crimes in our city so known for its love and tolerance. 

And then? Someone recounting the time Robin Williams sat down and shared laughter and late-night diner coffee with a shell-shocked family just come from their grandparents' wake. It was the first time they'd smiled in days.

Articles about children dying in Gaza, menacing threats of us bombing Iraq again, athleticism once more taking precedence over rape, Sudan refugees, Ukraine violence...

And between each of these, more personal accounts from ordinary people and celebrities alike of Robin Williams being a kind, honest, generous, compassionate man humbly spreading light and laughter everywhere he went. 

These stories of his unconditional love for everyone who crossed paths with him appeared innumerable, streaming into my news feed faster than I could consume them, and yet always seemingly kept pace by other stories of tragedy, horror, unspeakable cruelty, injustice. The way these narratives of Robin's silent heroism were so evenly dispersed between news of terrifying inhumanity...for a moment it felt like Robin alone had taken on the world, made it his personal mission to do everything he could to counteract the darkness he felt internally, and witnessed externally, by beaming out his beacon of joy and irreverent silliness, and by tirelessly committing to random acts of kindness everywhere he went.

It was dizzying, this polarized influx of information, pulling my emotions every which way, but at least it felt in balance, alternately interspersed like this. For a moment it felt like we'd be all right. That there was just enough hope and sweetness in the world to get us through.

And then I came to this photo.

And I fell apart. 

It was 1:30 AM and I wept in my apartment.

That face. That tenderness. That vulnerability. It ripped me to shreds because Robin's spark was one of the brightest of them all, and this week, despite his own pleading advice to us, he lost it. He lost the fight. And the world dimmed immeasurably.

The fact is, and as trite as this is to say, we need people like Robin in this world. Now more than ever. And yet even he couldn't bear it anymore. And as Russell Brand so astutely questioned, "Is it melancholy to think that a world that he can’t live in must be broken?" 

But here we are still, while he is not, left to process all the torment and unrest in the world. How can we not feel alone? Abandoned? Hopeless? But as his family urged in the days after his death, use his life as inspiration. If even he could search through his deep, internal darkness of depression and dredge up light and kindness to share with the world, imagine what the rest of us could do. Just imagine.
 
So do it. No matter small or big, do it. And do it now. It's never too late, never too early.

And oh, hey: love you, noodles. It's always, always good to mention that, too. ♥

[Something is happening with our police. And we're all affected.]

Oof. Powerful piece. Discusses not just race relations: 

"By all accounts, Brown was One Of The Good Ones. But laying all this out, explaining all the ways in which he didn't deserve to die like a dog in the street, is in itself disgraceful. Arguing whether Brown was a good kid or not is functionally arguing over whether he specifically deserved to die, a way of acknowledging that some black men ought to be executed."

...but also militarization of our police force:

"The worst part of outfitting our police officers as soldiers has been psychological. Give a man access to drones, tanks, and body armor, and he'll reasonably think that his job isn't simply to maintain peace, but to eradicate danger.

Instead of protecting and serving, police are searching and destroying.

"If officers are soldiers, it follows that the neighborhoods they patrol are battlefields. And if they're working battlefields, it follows that the population is the enemy."

Please read and give it some thought. Are you concerned? Do you think it's appropriate that our police force have these types of weapons? Is it overkill or is it necessary?

Damn. A great find by +Carter Gibson. Watch for the spin, folks. We are all dynamic individuals with many sides to us, many stories to tell. We are not so unidimensional. And regardless of whether you dress or speak a certain way, no matter what the story of your life, no innocent person deserves to be murdered by someone designated to serve and protect you.

"If they gunned me down, which photo would they use?"

This blog, following the death of Michael Brown, is fantastic. A blunt acknowledgement that we are all dynamic and complicated, but can be portrayed in any number of paper-thin ways. #IfTheyGunnedMeDown

"Robin Williams was exciting to me because he seemed to be sat upon a geyser of comedy. Like he didn’t manufacture it laboriously within but had only to open a valve and it would come bursting through in effervescent jets. He was plugged into the mains of comedy.

Of all the pieces I've read, this is one of the most compelling and poignant yet. Beautifully written from the perspective of someone sitting on the same ledge that Robin did; the sad clown tormented by demons, struggling with addiction, people laughing all the way as he inches closer and closer to the edge. Outstanding commentary from a fellow comedian who knows that fight all too well.

(And my hardcore crush on +Russell Brand grows stronger still.)___

What a loss. Thanks for all the laughter and tears, Robin. What sweet, sweet dreams we all hope may come to you.

[Why do we get angry?]

"When somebody provokes your anger, the only reason you get angry is because you’re holding on to how you think something is supposed to be. You’re denying how it is. Then you see it’s the expectations of your own mind that are creating your own hell. When you get frustrated because something isn’t the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You’ll see that a lot of your emotional suffering is created by your models of how you think the universe should be and your inability to allow it to be as it is."

- Ram Dass

[What happens when you introduce the internet to a remote Peruvian village for the first time?]

Last week I had the privilege of attending a scholarship fundraiser for CI Code School, which teaches underserved, inner-city kids how to code. Aside from us spending time hamming it up for the photographer (ahem Jocelyn, you instigator, you), we were also treated to an advanced screening of Web, a documentary following the introduction of the One Laptop Per Child program into remote villages in Peru.

Beyond just touching and humorous, this award-winning film poses some incredibly important questions that all of us, particularly those of us in tech, should be asking ourselves. Is the spread of technology and through it, globalization, actually furthering us in a positive direction? What are we losing in the process? Is access to the internet a human right?

Is the spread of technology and through it, globalization, actually furthering us in a positive direction? What are we losing in the process? Is access to the internet a human right? What responsibility do we have to the communities in which we are introducing this technology?

It left my mind buzzing and my heart in a swirl of conflicted emotions. Highly recommend seeing it if you can. You can watch the trailer here: http://bit.ly/XqVpKe

It absolutely blows my mind that changing a flight to a different day or even just a different time often costs as much, if not more, than just booking a new ticket all together.

Someone needs to disrupt the fuck out of that model. Come on, Silicon Valley. Give us something useful!

(Or is there some secret way around this I'm not aware of? I just want to fly out earlier in the day!)

[Man wakes from surgery and hits on wife after not recognizing her.]

All right. We've seen a lot of these, I know. And somehow they're all still fairly funny, although I think we're all in agreement that the format is getting a bit redundant, not to mention their veracity questionable. 

But this one...this is something truly spectacular, not to mention sweet as pie. "Do we call each other baby...?" The unintentional comedic timing is perfect. :D

Other than David After Dentist, this has to be one of my favorite post-surgery videos yet! Which are your favs?

108. 108 of the world's top HIV researchers, some of whom have been working on solving this global health crisis for several decades.

This event just became even more tragic on a scale I can't begin to measure, the impact of which is too far reaching to comprehend. And my outrage grows to meet it.

The main way it’s different from This American Life is that instead of bringing you a different theme each week, every episode of Serial will bring you back not just to the same theme but to the same story, to bring you the next chapter. We’re starting with a crime story, that’ll run for about a dozen episodes. Our hope is that it’ll play like a great HBO or Netflix series, where you get caught up with the characters and the thing unfolds week after week, but with a true story, and no pictures. Like House of Cards, but you can enjoy it while you’re driving.

The show’s produced by This American Life’s longtime senior producer Julie Snyder, and Sarah Koenig will host. She’s one of our show’s producers and she is – no question – the best radio reporter in the world for this series. Regular listeners may remember the hour-long story she did a while back, investigating a murder committed by this doctor named Gilmer. Every ten minutes, you learned something that changed your whole idea of the case and the story, and in the end, she found exculpating facts nobody at the trial on either side knew about. It was amazing reporting. I can’t wait to hear Sarah do this once a week. Seriously — she’s done some of the best stories we've put on the air: the Coincidences show, the story about her dad’s career in the “Mad Men” era of advertising, the episode about the maintenance man in the Schenectady, NY schools who became a petty tyrant. She produced Jake Halpern's Switched at Birth story, one of the show's most popular episodes.

"Everyone decides what love is for them. Some of us stop at practicality. And some of us will only stop when the most profound love connection walks through the door. The practical ones have a much better chance at lasting. But the soulful ones actually have a chance to touch God. Their odds are lower, but they don't much care. Better an occasional banquet with God than three meals a day with a stranger. Pick your path."

[If it's a comma, our government owes us so much more.]

This is absolutely fascinating. We all know that the difference between "Let's eat, Grandpa" and "Let's eat Grandpa" is quite dire (not to mention disturbing), but that's just a fun hypothetical to demonstrate the importance of properly placed punctuation. Now imagine if the founding document of our country, which explicitly dictated the functioning of our government and upon which critical court decisions relied, was transcribed with one very slight grammatical difference--a period instead of a comma--thus altering paramount instructions for our government's responsibility to its citizens? 

The debate is heating up, and its consequences could change everything as we know it.

[How did I end up with flowers?]

A beloved friend had sent me several texts earlier about her miserable day, so on my way home I impulsively got off at her stop to surprise take her to dinner in hopes of cheering her up. Unfortunately all that texting earlier killed my phone, so I was banking on her just happening to be home right then.

Oh, and what's this I'm passing? Sunshiney flowers at a flower stand? Yes, let's do that, too. Except, hmm, if she's not home... Ah! No matter! I have keys to her place always in my bag! I can just leave them in a vase with a note on her desk.

So as it turns out, she was not home. Like...really not home. After knocking with no answer, I entered into her apartment and saw the note left for the girl caring for her cat. Shit. My friend left town today. I totally forgot.

And of course right then it started hurricane pouring. Like, flash-flood warning and thunder and lightning and buckets of thunder and lightning's sweat beating down because it was still a sweltering 87 degrees out and thunder and lightning get hot, too. All of which I had known was likely to happen, but I had foolishly left the house earlier in a hurry without an umbrella, and was rushing home to try to beat the storm when I had instead decided to stop off for my impromptu surprise now laid to waste.

Shit again. The road to hell...

Well, no sense letting these flowers go unloved, I suppose...and hmm...perhaps there's an umbrella here in her closet...yes, yes there is...and say, isn't that Ethiopian place I love just around the corner?

So as it turns out, I unexpectedly ended up with lovely flowers, a belly full of some of my favorite food, and an umbrella right when I needed it. Would ya look at that.

Doing nice things for others so often really means doing nice things for yourself. <3___

[New York surprises me yet again.]

The thing I love about New York is how magically unexpected it always is. On any given day, you can meet the most incredible person ever that will forever change your life. Until the the next day when you meet someone even more incredible. Take a different way home and stumble upon mind-blowing, provocative street art. Collect a harrowing tale from a Pakistani cab driver. Say yes on a whim and end up in some crazy warehouse party in Bushwick.

Or perhaps round past the ice cream truck and come across your old med school classmate you haven't seen in four years doing Double-Dutch barefoot at the Do the Right Thing 25th anniversary block party in Bed-Stuy. Which is what happened to me today.

I love you, New York.

[Feel-Good Friday: Rethinking hair loss for cancer patients. Gorgeous photos.]

"The henna crowns, which feature traditionally feminine floral patterns, religious symbols and messages of hope, help women suffering from cancer cope with the loss of their hair to cancer."

If you read the comments, it seems that some of these women have alopecia, not cancer, but the sentiment remains the same regardless of the diagnosis. I'm amazed this beautiful artistry-meets-therapy took this long. Sometimes the simplest solutions are right in front of us. Or in this case, on top of our very heads. ;)

Why is this still happening? Come on, +Forbes,

Uuuuuugh.

TO THE TAMPON CAVE, LADIES! LET'S DISCUSS!

However, the angle of which jobs are best “for women” is offensive no matter what positions are listed. It’s not like there are “best jobs for men” listicles detailing which titles have the fewest women in positions of power and most opportunities for mansplaining logical fallacies while eating a sandwich. That listicle doesn’t exist, and not just because it would be offensive and inaccurate, but because men aren’t a marked category. The best jobs “for men” are just, you know, the best jobs.

[Lunatic or genius? You decide!]

@1:17. The best. Just the best. I was laughing so hard.

I just listened to an interview with this guy posted in the comments, and I loved his explanation of his role as "the trickster:" 

"Imagine if the entire world were to laugh. I believe that that would open up a consciousness to love. When people laugh, they just, you know--if everybody's in a good mood in the room, then all the sudden other people open up. When I've been in that situation--when everybody's laughing--all the sudden it feels comfortable to just hug people, and act stupid, and nobody's judging anybody. And it's not because people are drinking beer, or smoking pot. It's a real, natural, organic thing. So that's what inspires me. The mythology of the trickster."

When I've been in that situation--when everybody's laughing--all the sudden it feels comfortable to just hug people, and act stupid, and nobody's judging anybody. And it's not because people are drinking beer, or smoking pot. It's a real, natural, organic thing. So that's what inspires me. The mythology of the trickster."

Beautifully done and long overdue. Made me miss all my native relatives. ♥ Let's hope this touching tribute makes an impact.

Do you think the team name should be changed? Or are people overreacting and giving too much power to words?

[What are your favorite words? These are mine.]

I had decided earlier today when I was buying myself an ice cream cone, and the phrase cartwheeled joyfully from my eager lips, that "Yes, please" are two of my absolute favorite words to say in the entire English language. It's a positive affirmation, it's polite, it makes everyone feel good, and it is almost always, always said with great delight, gratitude, and possibly even relief. You know something good is coming when you get to say, "Yes, please."

So when I dropped my friend Rebecca's house tonight to grab an apothecary cabinet from her, and she said she wanted to make me something,
I had no hesitations in what I wanted inscribed.

Thanks, Reba. You are such a love. <3

"Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone." 

~Pablo Picasso

(A more grave twist on the ol' "Don't put off 'till tomorrow what you can do today" advice.)
