leah culver, yow.


Leah Culver is, of course, the co-founder and lead developer for Pownce — and this unique picture of her was taken from last week’s Open Hack Day, courtesy of my cousin.  (Think of the words “crush” and “vicariously,” that’s where I’m at.)

Here’s the original, from my cousin’s album:


One, how awesome is that? Two, one step closer.

To answer my own question from the last post:

Would you like her because she’s a geek, or because of the resemblance with Veronica Mars?

I definitely go for the ‘geek’ one.  Because (and not everyone knows this) geeks are the nicest, kindest people you will ever meet.

She’s still adorkable.

social networking phenomenon: lily allen.

(Hard to imagine a week without hearing the term, really.)

Last February 12, BBC Three showed the first episode of their new talk show, Lily Allen and Friends. Hosted by Lily Allen, the show centers it’s focus on the social networking phenomenon. (The phenomenon that helped launch her career way back in ’05.) The audience are Lily Allen’s “friends” (well, on social networks,) and they are given the chance to shape the show by letting them participate on interviews, submit funny videos to air and selecting the guest band for the next episode.

pownce that developer!

 

I’m infatuated with yet another geek! Not only is Leah Culver the LEAD DEVELOPER for Pownce, she’s also a certified Kristen Bell look-alike. (Is that why she always wears sunglasses?)

Oh, plus, she owns this laptop:

(She bought it by selling laser-etched-laptop-surface-real-estate ads.)

(Existentialism time!) Would you like her because she’s a geek, or because of the resemblance with Veronica Mars? Is it weird that I like her moar because she’s a geek?

She’s adorkable.

on the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.

“On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog,” one dog muttered to another, in a Peter Steiner cartoon from 1993.

And it’s true — the internet has made the world a small kennel, where a sniff is a click away.   Social networking?  SEO?  I didn’t even know these terms 3 or so years ago.  It’s easy to point out that the internet virtually has everything, but in providing everything, is it choking the passerby with all the choices?  Like a hungry man in a 5-minute-all-you-can-eat buffet, there’s simply too much good stuff to take in all at once.

Something I’ve noticed though, as video games overthrew the comicbook as favorite past time, TV has always been there.  Regardless of all the bad shit they have on, it’s still going strong.  That’s why statements like “Youtube’s going to make TV obsolete” aren’t taken seriously.  That, coupled with the sudden abundance of social bookmarking sites can only have one conclusion: the internet is struggling to be more interesting.

It’s become a place where original content is broken down into excerpts, referenced to itself and vice versa.  Where content is king, and audience participation is a must.
