Interesting Stuff

  • Moshe passed along this really fascinating piece (despite its length) by Emily Gould, a former member of Gawker about blogging, blogging personal information, and the like. Worth the 15 minutes.
  • R' Horowitz is speaking tonight in Brooklyn for all who are interested about The Talk.

    With everything that is going on nowadays, many parents have been asking me if, how, and when to have "The Talk" with their children -- speaking to them about privacy matters and abuse prevention in a manner that is consistent with our values of tzniyus -- before the summer.

    I will be addressing this topic this evening, and the issue of supervision of teen children, in light of all that transpired in the Catskills last summer, when I speak in Brooklyn on "Meeting Summer’s Unique Chinuch Challenges" for the Ha'Or Beacon School.

    The lecture is open to the public and will begin at 8:00 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, May 27th, 2008 at the Young Israel of Midwood, 1694 Ocean Avenue. The admission is free; there will be separate seating, and light refreshments. A question and answer session will follow my presentation.

  • JBM interviewed Frum Satire. It's interesting how Heshy differentiates the public blog life from the private one.
