How Social Media Makes Us See Ourselves Through The Eyes Of Other People

Alexia LaFata for Elite Daily:

On social media, we simply don’t trust our own judgment when it comes to our humor, our interests and our very selves unless someone else affirms it first. That’s a problem.

All the time.

“It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO. So, in 2015, we will launch a stand-alone, over-the-top, HBO service in the United States. We will work with our current partners. And, we will explore models with new partners. All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them.”

Richard Plepler, chairman and CEO of HBO, in a press release today released during the Time Warner investor meeting.

Yesssssssssssssss. Finally.

Why Rutgers needs to develop a more cohesive university identity

For once, I totally agree with an editorial in The Daily Targum. Nomin Ujiyediin:

There’s something a little pathetic about the fact that the University admissions website can only list five school traditions, one of which is “Easton Ave.” If the most interesting tradition the University can convey to prospective students is a description of what happens every Thirsty Thursday, maybe Rutgers needs to work on what defines us as a school.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Rutgers students seem to place more importance on being fucked up than anything else, and we always seem to go to the same bars to drink the same shitty mixed-drinks on the same nights with the same people. I’ve found myself ranting about this a lot while talking to friends, even (especially?) when I’m trolling Easton Ave on Thursday nights.

We can absolutely do better in this regard as students, but I would love to see the University as a whole step in, play the part of the shepherd, and push students to feel a little more connected to both each other and Rutgers as a whole.

"I'm not looking for scams and shortcuts."

Dave Winer on “lock-in” and why he does what he does:

I think the VCs do a disservice to young technologists. When I was young, I would have said no thanks to lock-in. I’m not going to be so dishonest as to create tools that offer users no choice. I want to win because my stuff is deep and powerful and performs fantastically and has the features users want. Why? I chose my profession because I love what I do. There are lots of ways to make money. I’m not looking for scams and shortcuts.
