- “Letter of Recommendation: LaCroix Sparkling Water: A tickling review on what’s arguably the best beverage out there, and what it says about selfhood. “LaCroix is for people who might not be perfect but are proud of their lifestyle choices every day.” (New York Times)
- Why we haven’t changed about lady parts. But maybe we’re misinterpreting freedom of speech? Courbet’sL’Origine du monde is still getting censored…this time on Facebook. (Slate)
- This Alaskan Senator ain’t happy about her colleagues taking a snow day. Watch the uncomfortable VIDEO to satisfy that “ahh I’m embarrassed for her” feeling we all need. Senators were probably here because it’s always“a great day for sledding and democracy.” (The Hill)
- How do Sloths get it on? Don’t even try asking me how I got here. (National Geographic)
- “Loneliness has always existed for humans.” America Ferrera comments on urbanites’ existential crisis around seeking love. Her and her husband’s (Ryan Piers William) latest movie X/Y delves into rudderless romanticism. (Vulture)
- Rockaway laments: Do you remember how we listened to music before the digital age? Basically it was listening to M2M with a Boom box when we were all afraid of Y2K. Maybe that’s just me. (Pitchfork)
- Pao v. Kleiner Perkins Trial. I need this be a TV show. (Re/code)
- I want to exclaim how this is yet again an example of our society's reckoning with unconscious bias (maybe?), workplace trials n' tribs (maybe?) and overall economic/gender inequality (maybe?), but from a very superficial standpoint... has someone already bought the rights to this for a Lifetime Original Series? If not, I’m calling dibs.
- Want to listen to Ellen Pao’s testimony on Monday 3/10 around 9 a.m.? Go to Civic Center Courthouse (room 604), San Francisco.
- After her time at Google Ventures as Content Partner, Leena Rao is joining Fortune. As a farewell gift, The Fund gave her a copy of the first print publication of Fortune from 1930. How incredibly sweet, right?
