Some people have asked to read the commencement address I delivered this morning to the 2013 graduates of Butler University. So here it is.

My own commencement speaker, who shall remain nameless, began with a lame joke about how these speeches only come in two varieties: Short and bad. This…

DO NOT MISS THIS. Also, I would hate to be a person who has to write a commencement address after this one.

This just happened, and I just did with it what I was intended to do with it. The circle is complete. 
UPDATE: Bex has the same dentist and to my “Isn’t this nuts? They must have hired a social media consultant!” she said “No, I recall Michael, he is truly an awesome dental hygienist.” So that is that.

This is only for people who are literally in the middle of having a heart attack and also prefer lemon lime flavor to cherry or grape. 
(Also, I have added this powder packet to the mobile pharmacy that is my purse in the hopes of saving a life and appearing on the cover of the New York Post with the word “HERO” next to a flattering photograph of myself, but mostly for the life saving part.)

A year ago, Tumblr did something unprecedented — we created an editorial team of experienced journalists and editors assigned to cover Tumblr as a living, breathing community. The team’s mandate was to tell the stories of Tumblr creators in a truly thoughtful way — focusing on the…

You know what would be awesome? If a company just hired the Storyboard team as a team. Companies have been known to poach teams of people who work well together (The Onion mass exodus to Turner/Thing X piqued my interest in this as a possible trend), so it’s not crazy. If I ran a company and was looking to build an editorial team, I’d be thinking about hiring this award-winning group of four as a whole and skip over all those months of strangers figuring out how to communicate in shorthand. 

Either way, I can see companies creating jobs just for these folks.

Why would anyone change this cat’s name?

Because it’s name used to be Pasta Batman.

This pet name is from the This American Life episode “20 Acts in 60 Minutes,” from 2003. Act 8: “The Greatest Dog Name in the World.” It’s hilarious. Listen here. (The Tate Donovan story, Act 1, is also hilarious.)

The Best and Worst Contexts For the Stitcher App Going Off By Itself and Loudly Playing a Podcast on My Phone

That happened to me last week:

BEST: All Things Considered at Work.

WORST: Yo Is This Racist? on a Crowded subway platform when I thought my headphones were plugged in and couldn’t figure out why everyone was staring at me for a full minute before I realized what was going on and frantically tried to turn it off for another 20 seconds.

Be careful out there, podcast listeners. I still stand behind both these podcasts, but am a little bit annoyed with Stitcher.
