If you're in New York on Monday night and want to get started in tech and/or learn about the APIs that power the social web, I humbly suggest you attend this class I'm teaching at the General Assembly!

I released a couple songs today, under my own name. Stream free, buy cheap. Enjoy!

Here is a rather long, very personal piece I wrote for The Lifted Brow about a record by The Green Pajamas, high school crushes, and grown-up love. Egregiously self-indulgent emotional listening habits are disclosed, and names are named.

Many, many thanks to +Ronnie Scott for running this, and for commissioning the wonderful accompanying illustration, which does look a LOT like the discman I used in high school.

Yes, really, really funny and good. You seem to forge connections with music that I can barely even muster with people. I guess I connect alright with my own music (kind of like how I do alright with my own self). Maybe I should write a musical memoir that is a novel-length fan letter to myself.

I had the pleasure of reviewing one of my all-time favorite albums over at Pitchfork today.

Google "Search by image" makes it pretty easy to find out exactly who somebody is using only their picture. This should have interesting ramifications for sites like OKCupid, where profiles are rich in information but theoretically not "personally identifiable." If you have photos of yourself up anywhere that you DON'T want to be identified, and those photos live elsewhere on the Internet (such as on a Facebook page, or anywhere else where that they could be scraped and associated with your name), I would recommend changing those photos.

Spoken like somebody who knows who somebody is.

I will be playing a solo show at The Rock Shop in Park Slope this Thursday night, with Hi-Life Wedding. I'm on first, around 8. Three new songs, three Get Him Eat Him songs, a cover. I hope to see you there!

I wrote something about this Friday's 1.USA.gov hackathon over at the bitly blog. It should be a very cool event, and I hope that you will spread the word and check it out!

Before I started at bitly, I never really gave much thought to data. I knew data was valuable, since spammers and other nefarious jerks were always trying to get mine. But I've only recently begun to understand the depth of that value, and the extent to which intelligent, interesting data analysis can make my own data more valuable to me. Many thanks to the bitly data team (+Hilary Mason +Brian Eoff and Mike Dewar) for the ongoing edumacation.

Yeah, the walnut warning is amazing. The FDA warning letters site in general is pretty amazing.

SO, here is a very very rough demo of a new song I've been working on, recorded live in my bedroom. I will be performing this song, and several others, at The Rock Shop in Brooklyn on Thursday August 4th. We'll see if it even sounds anything like this by then....
