MOUSE Celebrates 15 Years. Show Up, or Step Up
Once more with feeling … SO excited so many of you are showing up or otherwise stepping up for the MOUSE 15 year bash (http://15yearsofmouse.eventbrite.com/) tomorrow night. Still havent heard from some of you… Here’s one last chance to help those who help empower students around the country with tech skills. Since the 90’s, MOUSE has been one with the local tech community — in many ways MOUSE has BEEN silicon alley — and it’s incredible to see the next wave of entrepreneurs join the scene. I was a founding director and spent about half of MOUSE’s life on the board, including being chairman for several years; there are not many things i’m prouder of having been a part of. And what’s so great about MOUSE is that the family has stayed intact. A bunch of us who are on the benefit committee recently gathered for cocktails and it was such a rush to see everyone and to realize how little has changed in our common feeling for this cause. SO… It’s not too late to come or to contribute; every bit helps.
For kicks, a Time Mag piece from 2000 capturing the genesis moment for MOUSE.
Check out how lucky I got when I tried slow-mo for the first time w my galaxy note. #yankees
I think the radio will change-– and the sooner the better. Because no matter what way you look at it, the most pleasurable experiences you ever have is when something’s played to you you don’t know. Like going round to a friend’s house and they’ll stick a tune on you. Or going into a store when I was a kid and the new Smiths record’s come out and I’m going up to the guy-– and he’s really cool, the indie store in town-– and just talking to him about music for 20 minutes.
