State of the Blog

This blog, not all blogs.

I am embarking on my journey towards a masters degree from the University of Pennsylvania tomorrow.

Posts will be sporadic. They will lack the usual thoughtful analysis and insight you have come to expect.

The program is really cool. It’s called a Master of Liberal Arts. Basically, whatever I want.

And I very much want to help organizations communicate with a focus on branding, storytelling, and technology.

I made this as a test/proof of concept the other day. It may be buggy. Wait for everything to load if you’re on a slow connection. Works well in Safari and Firefox though. Maybe more to come like that.

Thanks for reading, Mom. And anyone else who may still be tuning in to my little outpost on the WWWs.

Information Is Everything

I scribbled this note down yesterday (capitalization original):

THERE IS AN INFINITE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE NOW.

READING IT ALL ISN’T POSSIBLE.

BEING WELL-INFORMED IS.

HOW DO WE PICK [what to read]?

I think I know how to choose: be picky and critical of what sources you choose to read and prune your collection frequently. But I still get wrapped up in it and read online sources too much, probably.

Update

Hello cyberspace! I’m still adjusting to my new life on a normalperson schedule, and hope to get the time to post on here more frequently! I’m also working on a paper I wrote in school about the community writing center I volunteered for; it might be published in an academic journal! I made it to the third round. Pretty cool.

I’m also working on closing down bminus—nearly all of my inventory has been printed and listed on etsy; the e-blast announcing the sale goes out to our customers this Wednesday.

I feel like my life has changed a lot in the past month. It’s exciting but disorienting.
