If you're in Los Angeles, check out The Big Parade this weekend!
The Big Parade is a two-day, 35-mile journey on foot from Downtown LA to Mt. Hollywood that winds through neighborhoods, parks, and more than one hundred public stairways.

I have a producer credit on this phenomenal Choose Your Own Adventure stye app. Download it and please leave your feedback!  More adventures and changes will be possible with expansion packs planned for 2013. Seriously welcome your thoughts (and many good karma points for downloading and rating it 5 stars!)
 
Coming out today! Is it a game? Is it a book? I don't know, but it's damn cute :)

My former colleague +Ben Bergman's inaugural piece as the new Orange County reporter for NPR member station KPCC. I would so love to try out flying a jet pack!

I could hardly believe it when our friend +Gabriel Gambetta described his Google workplace to me... but here's photographic evidence he works in THE MOST amazing office you could imagine. Let's get some of this going at NPR, right +nina gregory, +Steve Inskeep ? Especially the "napping bathtub".
 
It's not a house, but it wouldn't be hard to live here!

Studies show that employee productivity directly relates to how comfortable they feel in their working environment.

Internet search engine giant Google obviously know this, and have created an incredible headquarters located in Zurich, Switzerland.

This playful office was designed by the creative team at Camenzind Evolution. It spans 12,000 square metres, has lots of unique spaces, and a slide to round out the fun.

What are your thoughts? Do you like, love or hate this concept?

Got to watch "Valley Girl" again while producing this piece for KPCC's "Take Two" - Nicolas Cage was intense, magnetic. And why didn't Deborah Foreman make more movies? She was also great in "My Chauffeur" (1986).
While the 'Valley Girl' of the eighties became a cultural phenomenon, the Valley itself is a unique part of the country.

Best line of any movie ever: "Who else is there? No other val dude can touch me!"

I helped produce this choose your own adventure app with Reading Rainbow's partner +Honeybee Labs .  I'm really proud of the mission here - to get kids reading on the iPhone and iPad - without deception and hidden costs.
 "As a father and developer, it was critical that we make a product that rejects the models pioneered by Zynga and others, of predatory in-app purchases," Modjeski says.  "I've watched the way some app makers try to exploit addictive behaviors in kids, and we're taking a stand against it."

/PRNewswire/ -- Would your kids rather read a book or play a game? What if they could do both?

I produced this interview on the new Anna Karenina movie this morning. The film is EXTRAORDINARY - beautiful, sexy, intense. Go see it this weekend!

I have all the Choose Your Own Adventure books. I also have this idea do to a hangout where I read one of the Choose Your Own Adventure books, and whenever it's time to make a choice, someone on the Internet does it.

I think this is a pretty awesome idea.

This app is seriously exciting for all of us that grew up with Reading Rainbow.  HUGE congratulations to +Ryan Modjeski and +Honeybee Labs for designing and producing the library of 150 interactive books for the app!! 
By meeting young people in a new medium, Reading Rainbow hopes to encourage them to return to an old one.
