Hitting the road and headed East this Thursday with Dorian Gehring, Lane Becktrom, and Liam Cunningham! Excited to play at: a house show in Oberlin, the brand spanking new Bop Stop at the Music Settlement in Cleveland,  Meadowood Farms’ Lamb Jam at the Nelson Odeon in Cazenovia, NY; a brunch barn party at SkyDog Farms in Narrowsburg, NY; and then to my favorite Brooklyn venue, Pete’s Candy Store! 

Go see her and all my friends!!

"I went to a four-year university." "That job requires a one-year certificate." "It’s a two-semester course." "She’s a fifth-year senior." What do these expressions have in common? They use time as the yardstick for higher education.
Essentially, this means measuring not how much you’ve learned, but how long you’ve spent trying to learn it.
The conventions of the credit hour, the semester and the academic year were formalized in the early 1900s. Time forms the template for designing college programs, accrediting them and — crucially — funding them using federal student aid.
But in 2013, for the first time, the Department of Education took steps to loosen the rules.
The new idea: Allow institutions to get student-aid funding by creating programs that directly measure learning, not time. Students can move at their own pace. The school certifies — measures — what they know and are able to do.

If your image of a computer programmer is a young man, there’s a good reason: It’s true. Recently, many big tech companies revealed how few of their female employees worked in programming and technical jobs. Google had some of the highest rates: 17 percent of its technical staff is female.
It wasn’t always this way. Decades ago, it was women who pioneered computer programming — but too often, that’s a part of history that even the smartest people don’t know.
