I will be on KCRW’s national news affairs program “To the Point” tomorrow Wednesday 11-12 with sociologist and fellow examiner of the modern human condition Eric Klinenberg. We’ll be talking about his excellent book Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone. The topic will be the growing global phenomenon of people living alone. As the author of Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics, I provide the on-the-ground commentator perspective as well as a global view from having interviewed so many quirkyalones. Let me be equally clear that although I am a kickass commentator on this trend and an advocate for quirkyalones and quirkytogethers everywhere (and I actually really love living alone), my heart is very open to finding my beloved and a future in which I might not live alone. Just had to throw that personal note in there!
I have a review of Eric’s book coming up and I have been so busy writing a book of my own I haven’t been posting much, but this too will come.
I’ve finally arrived in the tech world. I’ve been gossiped about on Valleywag, the tech blog in the well-designed, but icky Gawker empire. I agree with all my journalist friends that these bloggers are NOT journalists.
On Thursday, Valleywag reported that Glam Media bought my company StyleMob. They also reported that I continue on as the sole employee at StyleMob and I’m not happy about the Glam deal. Hmmmm. No one asked me. Here are the facts: I’m now working for Glam as a product manager in charge of social media and community. I’m also continuing to work on StyleMob. While my personal happiness level changes on a daily basis, I think it’s safe to say that I’m happy to have sold my first company. I do, however, love the idea of a blog reporting on my happiness though. The emotional paparazzi!
I’m looking forward to building even more web communities. This time I’m coming full circle with quirkyalone. Watch out world, for quirkytogether. . . !
