Falling in Love

Outstanding shot, thanks

"Today is not yesterday. We ourselves change. How can our works and thoughts, if they are always to be the fittest, continue always the same? Change, indeed, is painful, yet ever needful, and if memory has its force and worth, so also has hope." Carlyle

Word is Chad and Ryan Steelberg, the founders of dMarc, have left Google. Good luck guys. The downtown Judy Barry leaving WSJ?

Congrats & Cheers: David Kennedy joins Interep as CEO.

Kids, the Internet, and the End of Privacy: The Greatest Generation Gap Since Rock and Roll. Emily Nussbaum offers up an interesting read. She would have us believe "The future belongs to the uninhibited" and..."In essence, every young person in America has become, in the literal sense, a public figure. And so they have adopted the skills that celebrities learn in order not to go crazy: enjoying the attention instead of fighting it—and doing their own publicity before somebody does it for them." Bravo Emily! The piece rocks. Read her New York Magazine article here. (Thanks to Rex for the tip)

The sail to Sydney: Ron Fell checks in from the Pacific on board the Queen Mary 2, here and here. (Closed circuit to Ron: please ask your mathematician pal about the "P versus NP" problem, his take on Stephen Cook and Leonid Levin. And what of the Hodge Conjecture? My sense is these qualify as math porn.)
