Do you mean high profile? Or just an example? Do you know Lori Michaels? She's one.

I'm teaching a class on how to turn your hobby (be it writing, music making, crocheting, competitive foosball playing) into your rent check tomorrow night, February 21st, at the Skillshare Headquarters at 407 Broome street, 5th floor in Soho.

Check out the class here: http://skl.sh/rGb22K

I'm giving away 2 free tickets...sign up and I'll choose the winners tomorrow before class, and reimburse you if you were the lucky ones!
Learn how to turn that thing that makes you wake up everyday into that thing that pays (some) of your bills

My take in @VentureBeat on what happened Thursday at #raisecache and on why NY Tech and Silicon Alley is the real deal: http://venturebeat.com/2011/11/21/raise-cache-hack-ny/
On Thursday November 17th, 1,300 plus New York techies descended upon the Lexington Ave Armory to raise over $100,000 for HackNY, a nonprofit organization run out of Columbia and NYU that keeps young ...

Blackout your blog with me in protest of SOPA and PIPA:

From Fight for the Future: Join us on the historic day by blacking out your site. Copy the code below and paste it into the header of your theme (Wordpress users: use the SOPA Strike plugin) to black your site out in protest of SOPA/PIPA. It will activate automatically on Jan. 18th, displaying this page and directing visitors to contact Congress, and will deactivate at the end of the day.

<script type="text/javascript">var a=new Date,b=a.getHours()+a.getTimezoneOffset()/60;if(18==a.getDate()&&0==a.getMonth()&&2012==a.getFullYear()&&13<=b&&24>=b)window.location="http://sopastrike.com/strike";</script>

In just 7 days, the Senate will vote on forever altering the free and open internet by instituting a new regime of extra-judicial, corporate-led website takedowns. This is a fundamental fight about who has power in society -- the people with the means to communicate freely or the governments and corporations that feel threatened.
Internet goes on strike — blackout everywhere. On Wed Jan 18, many of your favorites sites will be unavailable to you to stop web censorship. Call your congressperson today.

My latest Economist piece on oil spill technology http://www.economist.com/blogs/babbage/2011/10/cleaning-up-oil-spills
AS WE report in this week's print edition, the X Prize Foundation has just announced a new challenge: to sequence the genomes of 100 centenarians in 30 days for less than $1,000 each.
