I was wrapping up my work day doing research on trends, scanning a bunch of the email distributions I'm on, when I got distracted by someone announcing their tribe. Well, I just had to know where I would be categorized. Indie-scenester, they say. I say I don't fit anywhere perfectly (and that's the way I like it), but hey, if you've got to put me in a box, I do like having indie sprayed on its walls.
You can find your tribe via the FindYourTribe app. Are you like me?
I stumbled upon a really interesting new concept in language learning from a start-up called LiveMocha, whose beta product allows anyone to log-in and start collaboratively learning, practicing, or tutoring others in several languages. I love the idea of it; its one of those things that instantly strikes me as brilliant, and then I wonder why in the heck no one has done it before. You know, its one of those -- wow, that's great! "duh" kinds of things. Kudos to them for getting it out there!
I signed up tonight but have yet to take my first lesson. Check it out and tell me what you think.
I was reading about a very cool series of cultural events in London called "Lates", where various museums in the city host late night, after hours events featuring musicians, artists, crafters, etc. and thought how great it would be if Seattle had something similar -- beyond art walks and the like.
I did some quick searching, thinking that maybe we do have something-or-other and I'm just out of the loop. I managed to uncover a couple of things for any like-minded night owls:
SAM After Hours: The Seattle Art Museum presents a lush and
lively atmosphere with live performers and public programs from 5 to 9
p.m. on select Thursday and Friday nights. Live music, film, dance, lectures, and more. Prices vary by event.
Burn Night at CHAC: The Capitol Hill Arts Center hosts this event from 7 p.m. to 2:00 a.m each and every Monday night on its Lower Level. In
the past Burn Night has featured evil toy making workshops, clothing
swaps, and general rabble rousing, as well as community bonding
experiences. Sounds intriguing, yes? Oh, and I should mention - its FREE.
Anyone have anything else to add? I'd love to know about more!
