Best yoga class ever last night. Sunset, ocean, friends, perfection. Aaah. So lucky to live in Venice.

Forbes 30 under 30 in tech -- only 2 women?!

Forbes 30 under 30 in Tech list only has two women on it — and they are both listed alongside their male co-founders. The “expert panel” Forbes assembled to decide has no women on it. Unbelievable - they just needed to look an eensy bit outside their comfort zone to find some amazing female innovators to feature. Pathetic!

Major grammar nerd alert!

“My advice would be you’ve gotta make things. You’ve gotta build things. You can’t say, I’ve got a clip from my college newspaper. There’s gotta be a travelogue that you did with your pals from Bonnaroo. There’s gotta be an audio file that you made. I used to hire people all the time when I worked at weeklies, young people, and if they were coming now I would just say, well, show me what you’ve made with your own two dirty little hands. I don’t really care what you say, I want to see what you’ve done. It’s a time when you can make stuff so much more easily. Now, getting that stuff to rise above the clutter, and getting it seen is a battle, getting paid for it on top of it, yeah, that’s another battle.”
-David Carr’s advice on becoming a journalist

David Carr on Fresh Air

How Were You Born? by Natalie Hayter
Do you like to rip off tiny sheets of paper off street flyers? Were you born to? If so, you might want to travel to Sydney, Australia and tear off the one that applies you. Assuming you’re any of the following: 
Lady Gaga – “Born This Way” (2011)Patrick Hernandez – “Born to Be Alive” (1979)Bruce Springsteen – “Born to Run” (1975)Steppenwolf lead singer John Kay – “Born to Be Wild” (1968)Hank Williams Jr – “Born to Boogie” (1987)

The Woman Who Is Obsessed with Her Career and Is No Fun at All
I  regularly work sixteen hours a day. Yet, like most people I know  who  are similarly busy, I’m a pleasant, pretty normal person. But  that’s not  how working women are depicted in movies. I’m not always  barking orders  into my hands-free phone device and yelling, “I have no  time for this!”  Often, a script calls for this uptight career woman to  “relearn” how to  seduce a man, and she has to do all sorts of crazy  degrading crap, like  eat a hot dog in a sexy way or something. And  since when does holding a  job necessitate that a woman pull her hair  back in a severe, tight bun?  Do screenwriters think that loose hair  makes it hard to concentrate.

Paulo Coelho Discusses ‘Aleph,’ His New Novel - NYT

I’m skeptical of one person having as many “epiphanies” as Paulo Coehlo, but his social media strategy is one to watch.
