What I would do with $149,995

It has come to my attention that K.I.T.T., the ride of choice for vigilante crime fighters who are above the law everywhere, is now for sale. Interestingly enough, my 30th birthday is also next month.  ’nuff said.

Starcraft Origami

Zerg Origami (so cute!)OMG. If you’ve ever spent hours building up your puny Terrans and mighty Protoss forces to withstand a Zerg rush – you know what I’m talking about. Here are those same terrifying pixels, gently shaped and folded to look something like this – 야후! 이미지박스. I should have guessed that it was a Korean who did it, it seems like everybody mainlines the stuff over there. If you ever get the chance, try to watch Starcraft TV. Who says video game spectating is boring? It goes a little something like this.

Polyphasic Sleep

Hacking your body is old news, but hacking your mind is always fresh. Topics of conversation, like email forwards, seem to spread virally, and one of the topics that dominated conversation at SXSW was sleep. Polyphasic sleep to be exact. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get to the stage of wanting to take 6 naps a day, but it’s definitely an interesting way to tweak the conventional human experience.

Shackwatching’

The other day, I met Ejovi for lunch and unwittingly suggested heading to the Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. OMG. What a mistake. It was like the great wall of people. The line snaked down almost to 23rd St. Where, I asked, was the light social technology that enabled the community to combat this menace and ensure that waiting 1hr+ for a burger was somebody else’s problem? Today, my prayers have been answered. Thank you Shake Shack Watchers.
