This is wonderful ripple-effecting news for anyone in recruiting (or of course anyone who is a software engineer) living in NYC.

if you have an iPod, iPhone, or something similar, you probably listen to a lot of music on the go. I do, and after a while I became really frustrated with the stock Apple earbuds. Life is really short - too short to not cough up $100 bucks on stellar headphones....Why pay for 1,000s of songs (or $10/month for Spotify) and not back it up with awesome buds. If you are in the market, I highly recommend these guys.... they can be had for $70 bucks today.

Fred Wilson has contacted me about setting up a webcam in my apartment overlooking Wall St to capture the OccupyWallSt protests. He is the uber-successful tech and finance VC, blogger, and founder of Union Square Ventures (investing in dynamite successes such as Foursquare, Twitter, Tumblr, Bug Labs (note- I refuse to acknowledge Zynga as successful). It looks like the shoe is on the other foot now! Where was he when I pitched my startup idea for ice-cream gloves?

If you ever wanted to know what Google NY looks like, Interior Design has a pretty accurate slideshow here of the new 5th floor (the building is 18 stories overall). The slideshow is worth a look if you are curious but I wish they were able to show the most visually stimulating part of the office: the people. The atmosphere inside is like a mini-city, buzzing with people collaborating at cafe tables, working on their laptops, hanging out, playing games, +Aaron Rosen making PB&J sandwiches, doing some sort of project or another and just overall that same vibe you'd get if you hung out in a park in NYC and people watched for an hour. Of course, you could always come to one of our Tech Talk meetups and see for yourself!
