A reminder of an event I mentioned here on the blog last week -- LIVE from the NYPL and WIRED Magazine are hosting a roundtable discussion with Lessig, Shepard Fairey, and Steven Berlin Johnson this Thursday Feb. 26 in NYC. The event is titled "Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy" which is also the title of Lessig's book. I'm told the discussion will be about the big picture ideas and issues in Lessig's book, and was actually organized long before the AP/Obama poster/who-took-that-photo "shitstorm" -- so they won't be covering Shepard's legal issues, per se, but rather the meta cloud from which that conflict, and related conflicts and opportunities, have emerged. Tickets here, $25 general admission and $15 library donors/seniors/students. Completely inappropriate side-note: all the fellas in the promo image above add up to an awfully handsome lot, no? (thanks, Brad Grossman and Melanie Cornwell)

“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done.

Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs?
