Guest post about telling someone you have a crush on them today over at Pooping Rainbows. http://poopingrainbows.com/what-i-meant-when-i-said-i-have-a-crush-on-you-revisited/
This is a post entirely inspired by Eleni’s on August 8th here on Pooping Rainbows, entitled What I meant when I said, “I have a crush on you.” You should read that one; it’s great. == When I said, “...

Join me! I'm writing sympathy cards to my Senators mourning the death of the Internet because they supported Protect IP.

Seriously.

Check your Senator: http://www.opencongress.org/wiki/Protect_IP_Act_Senate_whip_count
If he/she's against PIPA, it still wouldn't hurt to let him/her know that we'd be mourning the death of the Internet if he/she doesn't convince enough of his/her fellow Senators.
While voting on the Stop Online Piracy Act has been delayed, Alexis Ohanian uploaded another video to YouTube in opposition to the bill, stating "The solution is innovation, not legislation.&q...

I blogged today about a conversation I had with a homeless man next to a soccer field. It was interesting; I walked away thinking about entrepreneurship...oh, and it felt really great to write publicly again.
//see. I walk to work every other day or so, about a mile through a city I can now navigate with my eyes splitting time between my phone and the way the buildings here seem to volley sunlight back and...

On Monday, three American students were arrested and detained in Cairo.

One of them, Derrik Sweeney, is the brother of 20sb member Nicole Sweeney. She’s been Featured Blogger and is very active on the boards.

She’s also a very close IRL friend of a number of our bloggers.

We realize the circumstances of Derrik’s arrest are controversial, but the situation in Egypt is frighteningly opaque and unpredictable, so our feeing is that Nicole’s family deserves our support.

How You Can Help

The primary concern seems to be that the boys haven’t been allowed to contact anyone; Nicole’s family hasn’t spoken to their son.

We think this is one of those unique circumstances in which the social media can lend a hand in spreading awareness.

Let your readers know what’s happening, or drop a comment on Nicole’s blog or 20SB profile. Comment on this post.

If you’re on twitter use the following hashtag to spread the word:

#bringderriksweeneyhome

Know Someone?

If you know someone or have a connection to someone in Cairo or the State Department, please contact Nicole directly:

Egyptian authorities arrested three Americans in Cairo's Tahrir Square, accusing them of throwing Molotov cocktails during the protests there, a prosecutor said.
