Post-Holiday/Post-Finals Update

29 Dec

I’M NOT DEAD! I’M STILL HERE, FOLKS!

With that out of the way, I’d just like to say that I survived finals and the holidays, and that I’m going to be back up and blogging soon! I’ve been living off of Chinese takeout and running on three hours of sleep per night for the last few weeks, so there was just no way that I would have been able to post. Ack. Dark times, friends. Dark times.

I’m currently in NJ sleeping and eating, and I’ll be back in the city tomorrow. I’m going to splurge on Motorino for New Year Eve, so I may do a post on that or a Ghananian restaurant in the Bronx which I plan on visiting. Stay tuned, and happy holidays!

Finals, Finals, Finals!

7 Dec

It’s finals time yet again here at NYU! This means two things:

1. From now through the 20th, posting on the blog will be infrequent. Just a heads-up for those folks who have come here and seen that I haven’t updated in awhile. I haven’t abandoned this site at all. There’s more to come, but unfortunately it’ll have to wait until after exams are over. I have two papers, a presentation, the business plan, and a final exam to deal with.

2. Prof. Penenberg’s class will be over, so there will be no more posts about business plans, blogging, marketing, et. all. The blog will continue (whether you like it or not) as just a food blog and nothing more. Rejoice…or mourn. Whatever works best for you.

See you in a few weeks!

Business Plan Judgement Day

27 Nov

Better late than never, I’ve come out of my turkey-induced coma to briefly update about something that’s actually related to class. The sheer amount of turkey that I’ve consumed in the last 48 hours…oof. Let’s not even go there. Onto the more pressing stuff:

Brief Hiatus

16 Nov

Hey folks. I apologize for the lack of new posts this week so far. Unfortunately, this business plan is kicking my ass and for the time being it’s all I’m focusing on. Regular programming (for the time being) will resume on Friday. Please be patient.

Foursquare Equals the NY Times Style Section?

12 Nov

We had a great panel in class today featuring, among others, Rachel Sklar of Mediaite and Cody Brown of Kommons. Many interesting things about the future were brought up but one really struck me as being interesting…

The Mullet Strategy (And Other Things)

5 Nov

I never thought I’d have the opportunity to tag one of my blog entries with the word “mullets,” but thanks to Jonah Peretti’s visit to my class today I can do just that and more. Peretti, the founder of BuzzFeed and one of the co-founders of The Huffington Post came in today to give us ignorant undergrads a talk about how to make our content viral. All in all it was pretty funny, informative, and mullet-tastic.
