This video is brilliant.

Kudos to JewsVote.org for their bold move, calling on young Jewish folks to “schlep” to Florida to get their grandparents to vote for Obama. And Sarah Silverman? A perfect choice.

It’s daring, to be sure…

Check out The Great Schlep for all the details. Happy schleping!

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. It’s not getting better, is it?

Well, yesterday Roger Ebert kept at it with a scathing review of Palin as the VP candidate for the Republican party. It’s worth a read. Here are a few lines from his post:

Although Palin gets laughs when she mentions the “elite” Ivy League, she sure did attend the heck out of college. Five different schools in six years. What was that about?

Here are a few of my favourite posts from the folks at Tiny Gigantic (the blog from the team at Language in Common).

I happened upon their blog when they posted a little comment about Idée and TinEye (they like us…whew!). Digging in a little deeper I found a number of posts that really spun the wheels in my head.

From “the elevator pitch is for people who don’t really care” to “generosity as strategy” and “personal branding is nonsense“, I think you’ll find plenty to noodle on over at TG.

Check out “How to Have a Conversation, or Tell Me About Me” as well; this isn’t new stuff really, but it’s well put and got me to thinking about my day to day interactions.

Tiny Gigantic – check’em out. The PDFs in the antics section are superbly done and worth a read too.

No dummies hanging around those halls.
