Skyline Chess brings the iconic architecture of New York City to your chess board. Made me smile.

Have you ever just stopped and realized that if you hadn’t met a certain person in your life, your life would be completely different.

Minutiae is designed to record mundane moments with no time to pose nor polish shots. The app was created as a response to the polished, carefully selected images we put on Facebook and Instagram. Instead of weddings, pets and brunch, Minutiae wants its users to capture the random, often boring things that happen in between.
As someone who created a 200 page book celebrating “The Beauty in the Ordinary” in 1999 as my thesis, this makes my heart sing.
The problems we feel most alone with are, by definition, a shared reality with millions of others, separated by shame and shyness.

It’s a one man performance by my friend, office building mate and artist in residence, Mac Premo. The play is about that familiar intersection between death, learning to listen, M*A*S*H, and baseball. Life, you know!?
The Bunt Machine is directed by Donal Brophy (a divine derelict from Dublin), with sound design by Jad Abumrad (of Radiolab notoriety).
This first run is a short one with limited seating— just six nights, from June 27th through July 2nd. And if you come on June 28th, you’ll bump into me! Excited to see Mac perform!
Last week I had the absolute pleasure to meet Vicki Saunders, the founder of SheEO, a global community of women radically transforming how we finance, support, and celebrate female innovators. SheEO’s goal is to reach 1M Activators, 10,000 women-led Ventures and a $1B perpetual fund to support women for generations to come.
I. LOVE. THIS!
Yes to radical generosity and women supporting women!

I have fallen in love with the packaging of Gotham Chocolate. Yet have to taste it!
