TED is coming soon to a theater near you

•January 27, 2009 • Leave a Comment

From the TED organizers: As part of our goal to expand our TED Prize community, we will be presenting, for the first time ever, the TED Prize session live in select theaters and cinemas across the US. In this live simulcast, deep-ocean explorer Sylvia Earle, astronomer Jill Tarter, and maestro Jose Antonio Abreu will reveal their 2009 TED Prize wishes to change the world. Be the first to see what they wish for!

The two-hour presentation will include special introductions from Quincy Jones, Al Gore and Sir Richard Branson and a surprise guest. This is an opportunity to be the first to know what our winners wish for — and to join the TED Prize community in helping make their wishes become a reality.

We hope you will join us and fellow TEDizens in theaters for this exciting event!

Timeless Concert Series

•January 26, 2009 • Leave a Comment

Anyone with an interest in culture, music, arts, etc… NEEDS to buy a ticket to the Timeless Concert Series. I’m so proud of Mochilla and Art Don’t Sleep for putting together an incredible line-up of composers and musicians and keeping this in Los Angeles. I encourage you, wherever you are, to come and experience this once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon.

Website Woes

yellow-dot-white-squaresI’ve been slowly chipping away with Braydon Fuller on 2.0, and it’s SUCH a process!! Selecting images, writing and re-writing text, considering navigation, user experience, optimization, esh! It’s crazy! But thank goodness for Braydon. He’s a miracle worker when it comes to programming, and I wish I could show you all how awesome the back end of the website works, because what he has done is truly amazing. Hope my work on the front can do it a little bit of justice. I actually used to make websites back in the 90s just for fun – although I still love the layout you see to the left, based on my favorite coat from Japan that I thankfully still fit into, expect to see something much more clean. Stay tuned…

Problems solved! (iphone apps)

•January 21, 2009 • Leave a Comment

Today I was asked if I knew someone who built iphone apps. I know quite a few techies but wasn’t sure if I knew anyone right off the bat who specialized in it… fortunately my genius techie friend Josh Klein emailed me from the East Coast, and was able to refer me to

I don’t have an iphone, so I don’t really download apps — but if I did, I would immediately download the one for Yelp and the one for TED:

Denauguration of the Blackberry…

•January 19, 2009 • Leave a Comment

Today, after reading in the papers about Obama having to give up his blackberry 8830 world edition, exactly the same as yours truly (sans hello kitty stickers), I had my first true feeling of empathy for our new President. GIVE UP THE BBERRY?! I wonder if anyone told him he had to do that before running for the presidency….At least he negotiated a laptop computer in the Oval Office. Can you even imagine not working without a computer? Bananas. We’re wishing the very best to our new President as he takes us into 2010.

Christopher Russell’s show at the Hammer opens tonight

•January 15, 2009 • Leave a Comment

Come say hi to Christopher Russell and listen to his talk at his first ever solo show, presented by the Hammer Museum. The photograph above is cut with xacto knives, there is wallpaper made of text, and lots more. Although I got a sneak peek of Christopher’s show off his iphone earlier this week at a LACE auction meeting, this is most definitely best seen in person.
