Florence At The Intersection Of Fashion & Tech

Florence. Home then to the birth of the Italian Renaissance and now to a “cultural and technological rebirth”. The union of the fashion and technology industries was celebrated at the Luisa Via Roma Tech Summit in January. There, I moderated panels alongside Executives from Facebook, Instagram, Conversant and ShopStyle USA. Other panelists included Google, Samsung, Swarovski and Condé Nast. Industry insiders will tell you Italy is the hub of e-commerce expertise and iconic fashion retailer Luisa Via Roma is the e-embodiment of luxury retail translated online

Know Before You Go: The ABC’s of Social Media for Parents

As we approach the National Day of Unplugging on March 4, it’s that time of year to talk about social media. Last year, at this time, I was working closely with The Meeting House, a pioneer organization in social and emotional learning based in New York City, preparing to speak at their symposium on social media and child development ( Parents Magazine did a write-up here ). How to regulate kids’ social media usage is a perennially hot topic, with parents constantly looking for new guidelines in an ever-expanding digital frontier. I wrote two pieces on this issue that traveled far and wide (as far as Dubai!) and that were even translated into Portuguese. What I discovered is that we can always fall back on what we know — namely that common-sense rules about good behavior can help guide our actions online; but also, we can use social media to cultivate meaningful digital interactions : Social media can indeed have soul.

NASA Has High Hopes For Powerful New Telescope

There’s a new telescope on the horizon — and it’s huge. NASA is planning to launch the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope , or WFIRST, in the mid-2020s. The telescope has a primary mirror that is  7.9 feet in diameter and will offer a view of the sky that is 100 times larger than what the Hubble Space Telescope provides. The space agency released the  new video above  on Thursday to detail its ambitious plans for the telescope, which is meant to discover new exoplanets, unlock the secrets of dark energy and shed new light on the evolution of the cosmos. “Telescopes generally come into two different flavors,” Jason Kalirai, an  astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, says in the video. “You have really powerful, big telescopes, but those telescopes see a tiny part of the sky.

Dudes Are Sending This Creepy AF Tinder Message, Thanks To A Pickup Artist

Women on Tinder, beware. At the recommendation of a pickup artist, men are asking women to sleep with them using the creepiest form letter of all time. In said message, these dudes claim to be “genuine guy[s],” not “creep[s]” or “pervert[s].” Because nothing says “genuine” like a pre-drafted sexual invitation, am I right, ladies? On Feb. 15, the Instagram account @feminist_tinder  shared a screenshot of a message sent in by a woman who said she and her friends had received the same message on Tinder “word for word.”  “Hey, I know this is kinda weird and pushy haha, but would you like to have sex with me? I’m not a creep or a pervert, just a genuine guy

San Francisco Entrepreneur Suggests Removing ‘Riffraff’ As Homeless Solution

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Martin Shkreli of gentrification. Justin Keller , a self-described wealthy tech company founder and entrepreneur living in San Francisco for the past three years, has had enough of the homeless roaming his city. He published an open letter to Mayor Ed Lee and Police Chief Greg Suhr on Feb. 15, decrying the “riffraff” walking his streets and bemoaning a commute that forces him to see the “despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day.” “I’ve been living in SF for over three years, and without a doubt it is the worst it has ever been,” he begins. “Every day, on my way to, and from work, I see people sprawled across the sidewalk, tent cities, human feces, and the faces of addiction. The city is becoming a shanty town … Worst of all, it is unsafe.” Keller’s letter starts off with some legitimate concerns over the state of San Francisco

The Bottom Line: ‘Private Citizens’ By Tony Tulathimutte

If a friend or a relative or a paranoid new love interest ransacked your apartment, dredging up the diary you kept in college but never bothered to throw away, the collection of beer caps or stamps or thingamabobs, the extra-lacy underwear, would he be surprised by what he found? It’s a question on dating sites everywhere, a litmus test for secretiveness. But the truth is, no matter how much we strive for honesty — factual or emotional — most of us have sides of ourselves that seldom leave the confines of our own cagey heads, or at least our own search histories. Often, if Tony Tulathimutte’s new novel Private Citizens is to be believed, those selves-within-ourselves can be pretty nasty. His debut book follows four friends who’ve somewhat begrudgingly reunited in San Francisco a few years after graduating from Stanford. Will is a programmer whose porn addiction could only be cured by his unrelenting obsession with his newish girlfriend Vanya, a super-hot paraplegic girl who devotes most of her time and conversational energy to establishing herself in the startup world.

Whatever You Do, Don’t Ignore Facebook’s Privacy Notification

Facebook is rolling out a notification to smartphone users that you shouldn’t miss. If you use the company’s official app, you may soon receive a reminder to do a “Privacy Checkup.” Opt into the checkup and you’ll go through a simple, three-step process that will help you understand how you’re sharing information on the social network. Privacy Checkup was first introduced on the desktop version of Facebook back in 2014, but the mobile edition is new. Users started to receive the notification earlier this month. Here’s how it works. You might see a little blue dinosaur at the top of your News Feed that suggests you run the checkup

Delta Went Above And Beyond For This Breastfeeding Mom Of Triplets

A breastfeeding mom shared words of praise after Delta Air Lines went above and beyond to accommodate her need to pump. Mom Jenna Evans posted a now-viral thank you note on Delta’s Facebook page . “As a breastfeeding mother to triplets, it’s important that I not miss a breast-pumping session, especially when traveling,” she wrote in the post. “Yesterday, two flight attendants, Kaitlin K and Loretta, on my flight from Atlanta to Dallas-Love Field, allowed me to sit in an empty first class seat for more space and privacy while I pumped in flight,” the mom continued. “They offered me snacks and provided TONS of water during my pumping session.” Evans added that she received similar treatment on her return flight to back to Atlanta and thanked that flight attendant as well.
