Amazing. @lukeleighfield really upped the ante when it comes to Kickstarter rewards: pink vinyl, CD, poster, tote, stickers, shirt, newspaper, all the things!! Congrats buddy and thanks for such a nice package. (at SoundCloud HQ)
A friend of mine mentioned to me that this video was the first time she realized that it is not normal for this to happen to women. Meaning, she has accepted it as fact that when she walks out in public she will be harassed and this video made her aware that it’s not ok.
I’ve never heard about the organization before but I’m glad to hear that they exist. Their tagline is strong:
You have the power to end street harassment
As a white adult male I don’t think I’ve ever been approached or spoken to on the streets by a stranger (except by mentally disturbed people on the streets of San Francisco - but thats for another post)and I would like to live in a world where everyone feels the same safety in public, no matter their race or gender.
I’m not really sure how I can help in this moment besides sharing this video and donating to their organization but if you have any ideas please do share them with me.
The vast majority of advice you’ll be given in your life will be one of two types: Either ‘Do what I did’ or ‘Do what’s best for me right now.’ Make sure you take the time to identify if either is the case before taking the advice at face value.
Less than two years ago I smoked at least thirty cigarettes a day. Today I’m a non-smoker and just ran my third half marathon ever in 2:02:56 (unofficial Runkeeper time). It was the third this year, yearly goal achieved. #proud (at Müggelsee Halbmarathon)
Introducing #TravelingTriwa: Starting today, this watch will go on a trip around the world. The rules are simple: 1) the watch must be given to someone who inspires you 2) you can only keep it for a month max and 3) when you pass it on, post it to Instagram with the hashtag #TravelingTriwa and describe why that person inspired you. First up is my friend @michaelberner who just made the jump from corporate to startup and is on his way to Stockholm. Let’s begin… @triwaworld (at John F. Kennedy International Airport)
"The story behind the trade is the secret fourth secret ingredient of any of my bread loaves." — Malin Elmid telling the story of the @breadexchange, the process of baking with sourdough, and the adventures of traveling the world.
So incredibly proud of my dear friend @breadexchange who is about to release the book that documents her journey, travels, and encounters with The Bread Exchange. I remember discussing the likelihood of this book with her on a pier in San Francisco 2+ years ago and it’s great to hold it in my hands. Pre-order to book directly from Malin to support her http://thebreadexchange.com/shop/
Done. 2:04:34 - to the second four minutes slower than the #BerlinHalf. Got hit by cramps at km 17 and had to walk every other kilometer. Oh well, two down for this year, and the second ever. Still proud. #StockholmHalf #halfie
