Donuts? This is Passover - it's time to break out the matzo (also spelled matzah). If you're still trying to explain social media to your Bubbi and Zedi, try using this list I created.

I got my head shots. I probably need an acting career to go with them.

I'd like to see something which measures the success of seemingly unhealthy habits. If I can measure how successful I am at binging on TV shows every work night or if my UnTappd profile is an encyclopedia itself of beer, am I likely to use that information to change my habits? Measuring home energy usage helps us to make better decisions for the environment or for our pocket book. But does measuring only activities or things which may reduce our quality of life spur change? Maybe it's the tool we use to measure activities which creates the change. Digital scales for the home and running on treadmills with with do-dad suction things didn't seem to take off as well as Fitbits. Now that I think of it, if my home was really smart, it would react to my data by using a lock system to keep me from accessing bad foods or sitting on the couch to long.
