    Facebook sparked a fierce backlash three weeks ago when it began enforcing a "real name" policy against performers and members of the LGBT community. The company initially dug in its heels,refusing to stop requiring people to use their legal names, inciting hundreds of thousands of people to flee to the quasi-anti-corporate network Ello . Now Facebook is feeling the heat and is slated to apologize for the situation later today, sources tell Valleywag.Read more...

I wonder if that kind of challenging of assumptions and holding people accountable for their positions is going on out of the public window in our organizations – from funders to researchers to service groups to academia. I wonder if the kind of serious debate that is healthy for arriving at well thought out conclusions on which to base decision making is happening behind closed doors…

You can’t get up one day [and say], ‘I’m going to be talented today and write a great piece.’ The only thing you can do is start composing and work your buns off working on it and studying the great music of the past and learning from it and then try to create sort of your own language.”

  • Sushi of Gari Supplants East Village Sushi Standby Kotobuki With Plans for Saki

    Devra Ferst
    1 Oct 2014 | 8:23 am
    The affordable 3rd Avenue sushi restaurant is being replaced. With its shiny Michelin star safely in hand, Sushi of Gari is gearing up for a new restaurant at 56 3rd Avenue. A sign in the window of the recently shuttered neighborhood favorite Kotobuki announces "Saki sushi restaurant produced by Sushi of Gari coming soon." Gari has been a staple of the upper echelons of the sushi scene for a long time and already operates four restaurants around the city, though this is the first without the name of sushi chef Masatoshi Gari Sugio in its title. It's also curious that the sign says "produced…

    Michelin Guide director Michael Ellis tells Eater why the 2015 edition of the restaurant handbook removed Daniel from its elite three star ranks, why Nakazawa was snubbed, and why Blanca, and Aquavit were upgraded to two stars. When Michelin debuted its New York guide in 2005, it received a mixed reception from some locals who were confused by the stingy rating system (one star is an honor?), while others were miffed by snubs of hometown favorites (no stars for Aquavit or Felidia?). Now, ten guides later, Michelin is getting a warmer reception. Aquavit has not one but two stars, and the…

    While preparing for his Cherche Midi review, Wells had an awful meal at Keith McNally's Lower East Side restaurant. Pete Wells likes Bowery blockbuster Cherche Midi enough to give it two stars, but that doesn't mean that he's a card carrying member of the Keith McNally Fanclub. To prepare for his review, Wells visited a handful of McNally's sister restaurants including Balthazar and Schiller's. Of the latter he writes: "The short-rib patty melt was the only good dish on a table full of disappointments at Schiller's Liquor Bar, but I enjoyed myself more than I have at far better restaurants."…

    It's expensive because the forger is famous. A strikingly good forgery of the Mona Lisa is currently hanging at Think Coffee in Greenwich Village. Mark Landis, forger extraordinaire, who has outwitted more than 40 museums with his paintings, supposedly created the piece in 90 minutes, reports Bedford + Bowery. It's up for grabs for $25,000 and the proceeds will go to his hometown museum, the Lauren Rogers Museum in Laurel, Mississippi, which he duped. Landis has been known to dress up as a priest when he presents paintings to museums, but since he's always donated the pieces, never sold…

Now here's a roundup of what the other critics were talking about this week: Pete Wells had mostly praise for Keith McNally's Bowery bistro, Cherche Midi: "The prime rib may be the only dish at Cherche Midi that could be accused of trying to make an impression. The dark, roasted edges had the irresistible intensity of the bark on great barbecued brisket, even on the night they were aggressively salted." He gives it two…

About six months ago, sources told the Post that Eataly might be opening a downtown location. Then in May, the Eataly team confirmed those expansion rumors, and casually mentioned that they wanted to bring the business uptown, too.

    Portland’s MAX Blue light rail line helped reduce driving far more than you would expect based on ridership alone. Photo: TriMet How much traffic does a transit line keep off the streets? Looking at ridership alone only tells part of the story, according a new study published in the Journal of the American Planning Association. The full impact of a transit line on motor vehicle traffic can far exceed the direct effect of substituting rail or bus trips for car trips.

It started more than two years ago when Ian Dutton moved some leftover ConEd cones a few feet into Bergen Street to cordon off the bike lane for cyclists: Photo: Ian Dutton The bike lane had become a parking spot for vehicles from the 78th Precinct, pushing cyclists out into traffic angling to get to Flatbush Avenue.

Map: Carfree Austin Network blog Carfree Austin has been taking a hard look at the proposal in a four-part series (1, 2, 3 and 4).

  • Traded my peach for an apple

    30 Sep 2014 | 7:02 pm
    When work sends you to NYC (for a measly one-hour meeting), make the most of those miles and extend it to include a weekend with one of your favorite ladies … at least that’s what I did. I can’t believe I haven’t hugged this girl since my wedding day! That’s just too long and crazy silly (and makes me feel like an old married lady). Thankfully distance and time are nothing when it comes to a solid friendship like ours. (; Instead of writing out a super long post on the many things we did, which was a ton x three days, I’ll just share a few of my favorites. There wasn’t a single…

    29 Aug 2014 | 6:16 pm
    A woman was fatally run over by a taxi on the Upper East Side — despite the heroic efforts of good Samaritans who hoisted the cab off of her, cops and witnesses said.

Nearly two dozen bystanders flipped the cab onto its side, and the woman was rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival, according to police. Cops did not immediately release the woman’s identity. It was not…

As we write in Footprints in New York, the castle isan architectural folly built by Vaux and Mould in 1867. It was designed to do nothing more than provide the optical illusion for viewers at Bethesda Terrace that somewhere deep in the park was a giant castle. It was the pinnacle—excuse the pun—of Olmsted’s…

But by the morning of the 19th the Apple store on 5th Avenue was a total mob scene.  The Apple staff had pretty much lost control of any sense of order. In fact, people couldn’t even figure out where the line ended, and that was because it didn’t.  The line for the new iPhone ran from the Apple store entrance between 58th & 59th Streets all the way up to 77th Street, almost a full mile…

As I enjoy the chilly breeze on my balcony and no longer have to continually blast the AC (I had to pay Con Ed way too much money this summer), it’s hard not to have the song “Autumn in New York” stuck in my head.The cliché signs of fall tend to be something along the lines of chunky knit sweaters, multi-colored leaves, and pumpkin spice lattes.

    Whenever you think about a lead marketing activity, you have to first evaluate and understand your need, and properly define your target audience. Are you targeting executives, decision makers, or technology users?

On the other hand, you have a host of list vendors who are ready to give away database for a price, and the outcome may not be as desired. Here are our…

    19 Aug 2014 | 2:53 am
    Your marketing database is the most essential aspect of a perfect marketing kit – yet the most neglected one. The marketing database holds the reins of our marketing spends, pushes our marketing programs ahead, and makes way for a number of opportunities to build the organization’s revenue.

This means that less than half of the marketers are using a proper process of professional segmentation of…
