Reacting to Reactions

Big news on the social media front, folks! In case you haven’t heard, yesterday Facebook introduced its highly anticipated Reactions. In a status update on his own page, Mark Zuckerberg described Reactions as “the new Like button with more ways to express yourself.” This is great news to me, at least, because I’ve always felt that the roughly 6,500 […]

No matter how you look at it, it's still just a dress.

It’s Not About the Dress

My office is like your office. We were talking about The Dress on Friday. It’s white and gold!, proclaimed one camp. No, it’s black and blue!, said another.

Forgetful Jones, You Are Not Forgotten

Awhile back I saw this image macro floating around on the Intertron: Aside from the fact that the comparison of Mitt Romney to Guy Smiley seems a tad bit forced, this picture bummed me out. It reminded me that there was a time when Guy Smiley – a character from the Sesame Street of my […]

All Hail Lukewarm

The last few days have brought an onslaught of extremes. The baby has either been so freaking happy she can barely contain it or homocidally miserable with her teeth. People have been upset with things going on in the American presidential race, so they are making big declarations on their preferred method of social media. […]
