Week 89: Prospects & Promises

Thursday, January 11, 2018
Location: Children of Promise NYC (Bed-Stuy)
Event: Volunteer Orientation
Food: Cookies

Seeing a video about children with incarcerated parents nearly melted my heart of coal. Children of Promise provides after school programs and mentoring in Bed-Stuy for these kids. Smart organization, honorable mission, great cookies.

Location: Rise (Flatiron)
Event: Rare Digital Art Festival
Food: Bagel

I honestly left this event thinking I needed to invest a bunch of money in CryptoPunks and CryptoKitties. Thankfully I came down from the propaganda high before I liquidated my 401K. But there's apparently a lot of people that will spend real money to buy a digital picture that everyone can see but only one person can "own". My grip on reality is slipping.
