Today was @khanacademy's highest traffic day ever, next week will be even larger (as more schools start). Super exciting!
I guess it's official: @ChristiesInc has no Asia Week Japanese art auction. Follows @Sothebys' shutdown. Interest in the art is dying :(
Amazon buying @Twitch makes a lot of sense. I put a lot of hours into watching Twitch streams/VODs. The future of media is weird and great!

I will donate $20 to a charity if someone can land an edit to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reptilians or en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World… in @congressedits
It's really easy for any cafe to win me over: Just play a good 80s mix and make sure there's a lot of Depeche Mode.
... The grant is to fund the production of open source tools for analyzing art photo archives. The results are already extremely promising!

Trying to break the habit of saying 'guys' for a group of people. 'Folks' is odd, 'Y'all' could work, but I'm not southern. Suggestions?

A joyous day: at @khanacademy we're dropping IE 8 support today! It's only 1.2% of our traffic. So exciting!
It’s July, 2014 is half over. It’s a good time to think about the projects that you’ve been wanting to release this year and finish them!
At the @khanacademy offices - I honestly think there are more new employees than "old" employees. Growing so fast, so many new faces!
In the Tenderloin, watching a seagull kill and eat a pigeon. Beautiful, scenic, San Francisco!
Heading off to SF until mid-August! Will be working at @khanacademy in-the-flesh. Will miss NYC and my friends so much! Be back soon <3
