    Yes, we need to "woo" all our visitors, but is this really the way to "woo" millennials? I doubt if this approach would impress many of my millennial friends (and I have a bunch of 20-somethings who are good friends).

Adult females oust teenage boys as largest gaming demographic | The Rundown | PBS NewsHour - 0 views

  •  
    Well, I must fess up that I'm one of those adult females pushing out those teenage boys. And, like the study, I only play on my iPhone and iPad. What does that say about our world today I wonder. ? Should we develop more humnities-oriented games for folks like me, or should I just decide to "get a life" and get off-line? Thoughs

    Are millenials really as narcissistic as they are often characterized? Pew study finds them complex, introspective, entrepreneurial, health-conscious, and nice.

Smiling for 'Auschwitz selfies,' and crying into the digital wilderness - CNN Belief Bl... - 0 views

  •  
    An extremely insightful blog post about how different generations tend often to have opposing viewpoints about sharing their experiences in "sacred places" through social media.

    Very interesting. I think this is going to make me self-conscious about taking pictures at historical sites of all kinds.

Coffee Shops in Brooklyn, New York - 1 views

  •  
    This map shows the location of every independent coffee shop in Brooklyn and the walking-shed community associated with it. Independent coffee shops are positive markers of a living community. They function as social spaces, urban offices, and places to see the world go by. Communities are often formed by having spaces in which people can have casual interactions, and local and walkable coffee shops create those conditions, not only in the coffee shop themselves, but on the sidewalks around them. We use maps to know where these coffee shop communities exist and where, by placing new coffee shops, we can help form them. We applied two steps to generate the data displayed by the map. First, we used the Google Places API to locate all coffee shops in a given city. Second, for each point in the map we queried the walking route and distance to its nearest coffee shop using the Google Distance Matrix API. In the final map the colored areas represent a region which is walkable to a specific coffee shop (within one kilometer or 0.7 miles). The intensity of color at each point indicates its distance from its corresponding coffee shop.

  •  
    PlaNYC 2030 - a cool future plan for NYC. Of note for my interest is the chapter on Parks and Public Space, but others may find other chapters of interest, especially in terms of how they envision the city 15 years into the future.
