How Many Of Us Are Online At Any Given Second?

Ever wonder just how fast the Internet moves? PennyStocks put together one of the scariest, most mind-blowing GIF charts I’ve ever seen, illustrating just how much activity happens in each second online. This realtime infographic can show you how many people are Instagramming, Snapchatting, tweeting, pinning, and everything else digital under the sun. I can’t decide whether I’m inspired by the vastness of how connected we all are or just guilty over all the computer time I clock in every week. [Gizmodo via PennyStocks]

Only 30 Percent Women: Google Releases Data About Their (Lack Of) Diversity

todays lady news
  • Google released information yesterday about diversity within its workforce — and if you guessed that the majority of their employees “white” and “male,” you win a prize! According to data from January 2014 onward, 70 percent of its workforce are men and 30 percent are women. Sixty-one percent are white, 30 percent are Asian, three percent are Hispanic, and two percent are Black. “[W]e’re the first to admit that Google is miles from where we want to be—and that being totally clear about the extent of the problem is a really important part of the solution,” they wrote in the post. While I agree there is much to be improved, I commend Google about their transparency. [Google Official Blog] Keep reading »

Co-Founder Of Rap Genius Fired Over Jokes About Elliot Rodger’s Misogynist Manifesto

elliot-rodger-rap-genius

The co-founder of Rap Genius, the website that allows readers to explain what the hell Kanye means in his lyrics through annotations, was fired this weekend after posting jokes about Elliot Rodger’s 140-page misogynist “manifesto.” After emailing the manifesto to his parents, therapist and others, Rodger went on to kill six people near the UC Santa Barbara campus before taking his own life.

Rap Genius co-founder Mahbod Moghadam found this funny, apparently, because he read through the document and added annotations to Rodger’s writing. As first reported by the tech blog Valleywag, Moghadam noted that Rodger’s writing was “beautifully written” and “artful.” He also speculated a woman Rodger once knew would “go on to attend USC and turn into a spoiled hottie” and wrote about Rodger’s sister, “MY GUESS: his sister is smokin hot.” Keep reading »

Cool Or Creepy: New App Lets You Embed Yourself In The Life Of A Stranger

Would you share your life with a stranger?

We all got stern warnings about stranger danger when we were kids, but according to a research group at MIT, we could all use more contact with strangers, not less. That’s why they developed a new iPhone app called 20 Day Stranger, which connects you and a stranger and lets you anonymously observe each other’s lives. You get updates on what they’re doing, how they’re feeling, where they are (the app pulls photos from Google Maps and FourSquare instead of using exact locations), all delivered matter of factly, without Instagram filters or disingenuous Facebook status updates clouding reality. At the end of the 20-day period, each person has the opportunity to send the other a single message, in which they can include their real contact info (but only if they feel so inclined).

The goal of all this anonymous life sharing? Fostering connection, understanding, and empathy. Keep reading »

Cosmopolitan Declares Techie Guys Are “Trending” — Here’s What I Know About Dating Them

cosmo-tech-dude

Well, Mark Zuckerberg, you’ve finally made it: Cosmopolitan has written an article on the pros and cons — sorry, make that bros and cons — of dating a “start-up techie.” You may not have had much success with girls at Harvard, but according to Cosmo, your type is now “trending” as “Hollywood It Girls are snatching up web entrepreneur like they’re the latest iPhone upgrade.” That’s almost as monumental your whole being-worth-$27.8 billion thing!

I don’t usually have much to relate to in Cosmo articles (just can’t get that damn squirter thing to squirt) but this topic is actually something I know a thing or two about. You see, I’ve actually dated two different guys who launched their own start-ups — Ex-Mr. Jessica was one of them and the other sold his startup and is now some muckety-muck at Facebook. I’ve a fair amount of time around startup guys (they are for the most part dudes, although not always), and yeah, despite Jezebel’s snarking, Cosmo is on to something … particularly how a lady will always be number two in a tech dude’s life because “his devotion to his startup rivals Adam Levine’s love for Victoria’s Secret models” and “he’s always working.” Keep reading »
