Personal Note:

This week has been sad, awesome, and crazy – not necessarily in that order.

I’ve been thinking a lot about intellectual property rights, where ideas originate, and how you go about crediting original sources in this day and age of Twitter streams and Facebook status oceans.The Internet is a strange, strange place. I’ll probably have more ideas (apart from the Twitter archiving post from earlier this week) on the topic at some point.

This week I was pleased to receive the  silent auction items I won from the One Story’s Literary Debutante Ball. I wish I could have been at the fundraiser in person. As it was the night before a local fundraiser I attend every year, I wasn’t able to fly in to attend. It’s definitely on my radar for next year though. I’m so thankful the wonderful Helen Ellis brought the event to my attention. There will be another post about this in a week or two with pictures and more info.

I was incredibly saddened to hear yesterday about the death of Adam Yauch AKA MCA of The Beastie Boys. From 6th grade all the way through my adult years The Beastie Boys have been part of the soundtrack of my life. Click here to watch a classic MTV Week In Rock segment about MCA’s antics at the 1994 Video Music Awards. Nate pointed it out to me this morning.
