  1. co-working cafe in Manhattan

    Interesting. Gregor talked about doing a co-working cafe in Boston some time ago, and it sounded interesting then; it sounds more interesting now that it is very real in Manhattan. I no longer exactly fit the intended target market of “entrepreneurs, designers, programmers and technologists”, but I’ll certainly try to sneak down there for a…

  2. stone barns with green market

    To wrap up what has really been a stunning weekend Krissa and I went to have a cookout at a Green Market co-worker’s house. This co-worker happens to live right behind Stone Barns, a big (new-ish) farm-focused educational center with a fairly swanky food concession. I had a great time- lots of cool Green Market…

  3. trying to enjoy New York

    Good: I spent the morning in line for Shakespeare in the Park. Great to enjoy a little bit of what the city has to offer. I somehow seem to end up in lines a lot. Impromptu Shakespearean puppet show by awesome line monitor/vendor dude. Bad(?): my light enjoyment reading while waiting in line was “The…

  4. back in new york

    I’m enjoying being back in my own bed and back on my own couch. If only I hadn’t brought a brutal head cold with me back from North Carolina. Next up: 31 interviews in 5 days, with or without the head cold.

  5. link dump, before I brave the torrential downpour

    It is pouring out. I’d meant to go to Duke Gardens and start on Wealth of Networks again, but clearly not going to happen today. Instead, a quick linkdump and then a search for some local foraging. Matt Asay elaborates a bit on my musings on social production and lawyers. Matt is right to emphasize…

  6. last day in New York

    Managed to make the last day in New York pretty stereotypical: wait 25 minutes for a bus that should come every 12: check switch trains in order to save yourself a two-block walk, end up waiting 20 extra minutes: check take a cab ride which makes you violently nauseous: check go to a spectacularly beautiful…

  7. two more links, literally about wandering this time

    My old co-worker Ethan (who is blessing New York with his global presence next week) has written a piece about ‘the post-national’ people who are his friends. It includes some thinking about the implications of a growing post-national class- particularly one which is post-national not because they hate their countries, but because they love all…

  8. St. Johns under the lights of Elton John

    I don’t usually consider myself jealous of extreme wealth, but outside my window tonight is one of those times. Apparently Elton John is throwing his 60th birthday party at St. John the Divine, the cathedral across the street from my apartment. The paparazzi are out in force; I can hear the screaming fans when particularly…

  9. Moglen speaking tonight

    Thanks to the excellent InfoLaw NYC calendar, I just discovered that Prof. Moglen is speaking tonight at NYU Law School. The talk is titled “The Empire & the iPhone: ‘Technology Platforms,’ the Commons, and the Way We Live Now.” I’ll be going- hope to see folks there. [Tangent: is there any way to get notifications…
