My blog’s older than Twitter and Facebook, and it will outlive them. It has seen Flickr explode and then fade. It’s seen Google Wave and Google Reader come and go, and it’ll still be here as Google Plus fades. When Medium and Tumblr are gone, my blog will be here.

The things that will last on the internet are not owned. Plain old websites, blogs, RSS, irc, email.

Insightful post. If you’re banking on social media platforms, you need to be ready to walk away when that platform folds or becomes - for any variety of reasons - untenable. This is the new rule, not an exception.

Game of Thrones Theme
Cornell Chimes

Cornell’s Chimes played the Game of Thrones theme song the other day. It was pretty epic, hearing the bells booming over campus. I captured almost all of it using my phone. What a great rendition!

Hopefully this’ll be one of those songs they start playing regularly :D

Yeah—I want to record it properly, from start to finish!

Spotted on Cornell’s campus: “♥ A Librarian” bumper sticker. I approve!
