Ten years ago, just before Thanksgiving, an extremely nervous Peter Durand proposed to Diane Cross at the top of the Hancock Building in downtown Chicago.
A man after my own heart... Ben had the gonadal circumference to name his service after a simian! We use MailChimp for our sporadic newsletters, too.
MailChimp was a hit, and he started focusing exclusively on it in 2005. Since then, MailChimp has grown from 9,000 users to more than 400,000.
MailChimp makes it easy to design and send beautiful emails, manage your subscribers and track your campaign’s performance. It takes powerful tools like segmentation, a/b testing and ROI tracking, and turns them into something anyone can use.
Ben’s interests include brand personality, monkeys and cars. His interests do not include golf.
Homo-Thespian: A new play, "Hominid," reenacts a violent incident that took place in a chimpanzee colony. Primate expert Frans de Waal and the play's actors describe what it took to stage a chimpanzee drama with a very human story.
Substituting for murderous, hairy apes is a chorus of bright and shiny affluent cultural elites in sparkling tennis whites.
The story, however, ends the same, with suicide, murder and the overthrown of a beloved leader!

OPENING RECEPTION FOR YEE-HAW EXHIBITION
THIS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6 from 7-9PM
75 9th Avenue (Between 15th and 16th Streets), New York, NY
From OCTOBER 4-JANUARY 2, 2009, Yee-Haw's work will adorn the vast and cavernous Chelsea Market, located in the Meat Packing District in Manhattan's West Village. Chelsea Market is an enclosed, urban food court and shopping mall in New York City. It is housed within the former Nabisco factory complex where the Oreo cookie was invented and produced. The 22-building complex fills two entire blocks bound by 9th and 11th Avenues from 15th to 16th Street.
"It is a world full of conflicts." notes Jon Stewart in his intro to this report. "Some are more important than others. And some are much, much less."
In the contentious field of science, there are many accepted truths. These two ape scientists duke it out over who is our closest ancestor. Fortunately, The Daily Show correspondent John Oliver is there to conduct an evidence-based debate: Chimps vs. Orangutans.
(A 'must-see' in that you must see the scientist with a mohawk who lacks any capacity for self-deprication or free-style rap skills.)
As part of the Explore Evolution exhibit at the University of Nebraska State Museum, Judy Diamond displays a segment of the human genome in line with that of the chimpanzee that matches very closely. The point is to show how similar two are with the few differences represented by a drawing of a man, distinguished geneticist Svante Paabo.
See video of scintist Richard Dawkins explaining the exhibit.
