The Future of Social Media Parenting [COMIC]
Illustrated by Kiersten Essenpreis, a New York-based artist who draws and blogs at YouFail.com, this cartoon is hilarious. If babies could tweet, what would their updates look like? This came our way via @jrbrumm, whom we thank for pointing us toward this great laugh.
All Colours Of Autumn [PIC]
Here in the northeast, the fall colors have come and mostly gone. Here’s a picture gallery of some very nice images of autumn’s majesty. Thanks to @AnnTran for steering us in the right direction.
Archive Gallery: Vintage Robots
This 21-picture gallery of robots from Popular Science dates all the way back to 1928. Interesting to see how the vision for creating robots and what they might do has evolved over the decades since.
Cocktails for a Cause
In 2001 LivePerson started FeedingNYC, a program that, at the time, hand delivered Thanksgiving dinners to 40 families in need. In 2010 FeedingNYC has teamed with the Robin Hood Foundation with a goal of providing over 8,000 Thanksgiving dinners to those in need.
The organization is holding a cocktail reception on Thursday, November 18th from 7 to 10PM at Hudson Terrace, 621 West 46th Street (between 11th and 12th Ave.) in New York City.
- A $105 ticket feeds three families, gets you in the door and you can drink for free all night.
- A $35 ticket provides Thanksgiving dinner for one family and gets you in the door.
This worthy cause was brought to our attention by @pulsdJFK.
