The Day (after) The Lolcats Died

On Jumping on Entrepreneurship

Why, why are laws a thing you can buy? They got paid off, should be laid off, re-election denied Our web means more than lawyers, lobbies and lies So speak up before the internet dies

Thursday, January 12th. Six days before tens of thousands of websites blacked out, before thousands would take to the streets of New York and San Francisco, and before the biggest online protest in history. SOPA and PIPA were being rammed through Congress, and it threatened to restrict freedom of information and destroy the Internet as we know it.

I was spending a lot of time on this fight. I had spent the week juggling my full time job and planning a protest rally in Seattle (which ended up getting snowed out), when a line to a song suddenly popped into my head. Sung to the tune of Don McLean’s “American Pie,” it went “the day the lolcats died.”

I’m part of Laughpong, a Youtube channel where my circle of friends make viral comedy videos about popular topics like Kinect or Siri. Most of our videos break 100,000 views, several have broken 1 million. Cumulatively, we have over 10 million views.

Fitness Goals I Will Reach By Next Summer, Starting Long Ago

On Runner's Ravings

I’ve been at the University of Missouri-Columbia (Mizzou) for a week and a half, and I’m already more involved in the school’s culture and institutions than I ever was in my high school.

As I find myself getting involved with The Maneater, my residence hall, and the Missouri Students Association (MSA), I recognize that I need to take a moment and outline my goals. It’s easy to submit numerous applications and plunge into every opportunity, and I’ve had a blast doing it, but it undoubtedly necessary to stop and consider what I’m doing, where I’m headed, and where I want to be.

Here are some goals I’ve set for myself. For now, I'm going to focus only on my fitness goals. This is because I believe this to be the area of my life most swinging in the balance right now. I’m going to outline them as tediously as possible. Broad goals, I’ve found, are not very effective.
