Skype’s Modern Palo Alto Office design

Welcome to Skype’s Palo Alto office. Pretty dope isn’t it? Is Skype’s office better than Google’s in the UK though?

Skype recently hired architecture and interior design firm Blitz to renovate their current 54,000 sq ft space in Palo Alto. Their primary goal was to create a world-class office that would differentiate themselves from their Bay Area competitors. Ultimately, they want to recruit the best talent in the field.

The new space reflects Skype’s spirit of innovation in a highly functional yet creative workplace designed to encourage interaction and spontaneity. Specific acoustic requirements were made in order to support the audio and video capabilities of their 250 employees. The project is seeking LEED Silver certification.

Open Letter To Chris Brown From Kevin Powell

chris_brown_basketball_west_4th_street_courts_new_york_city

A letter from MTV’s Real Word: NYC and politician Kevin Powell. Only a rehabilitated “angry black man” can help this current “angry pusswad.” Read on…

KP:

Dear Chris:

I really did not want to write this open letter, and would have preferred to speak to you in person, in private. Indeed, ever since the domestic violence incident with Rihanna two years ago there have been attempts, by some of the women currently or formerly in your circle, women who love and care deeply about you, to bring you and I together, as they felt my own life story, my own life experiences, might be of some help in your journey. For whatever reasons, that never happened. By pure coincidence, I wound up in a Harlem recording studio with you about three months ago, as I was meeting up with R&B singer Olivia and her manager. You were hosting a listening session for your album-in-progress and the room was filled with gushing supporters, with a very large security guard outside the studio door. I was allowed in, as I assume you knew my name, and my long relationship to the music industry. I greeted you and said I would love to have a talk with you, but I am not even sure you heard a single word I said above the loud music. I gave your security person my card when I left, asked him to ask you to phone me, but you never did, for whatever reasons. And that is fine.

Elizabeth Taylor (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011)

Today, we lost a icon, fuck that, a super-icon. I can remember seeing all those Elizabeth Taylor commercials when I younger, and I always wondered who the lady with those amazing eyes was. That’s how I became familiar with this legendary figure in Hollywood.

Game Of The Year?

LOS ANGELES, CA - MARCH 22:  Kobe Bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers reacts after making a shot during a game against the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center on March 22, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via Getty Images)

Three overtime periods!? Games like these prove why some athletes need to keep their asses on college, its a MAN’S game. With stat lines like these: Kobe Bryant – 42 points, 9 rebounds and 9-for-11 from the free throw line in 48 minutes. Steve Nash – 19 points, 20 assists while playing 49 minutes. Mind you, these guys are well into their 30s. Originally, I had the first meeting between the Knicks & Celtics where Amar’e Stoudemire’s game winning three-pointer didn’t count. That was some of the best basketball I’ve seen in a LONG time. Alas, there’s tonight’s game where I thought Los Lakers would run all over Los Suns, but I was very wrong. As of now, the Suns are on the outside looking in from a playoff perspective, with games like this they’ll be right back in the hunt. RESPECT to both teams.

American’s favorite Canadian Robin Scherbatsky! I was watching the episode where Marshall takes her to the ‘Hoser Hut’ and I just had to make a post about her. I watch this show everyday, so why did it take me this long to make a post?

Video: Clark Kent Talks Jay-Z’s “Reasonable Doubt” Era & His Epic Sneaker Collection

You already saw the preview, now check out Javid’s full interview with the legendary DJ Clark Kent where he talks about convincing Jay-Z to take rap seriously, helping him record and shop his early demos and an interesting first meeting with then up and coming rapper Shyne. Then Clark gets into his fabled sneaker collection, how many pairs he has left even after giving away more than 2,000 pairs to charity and what pair of shoes he would wear if it had to be the same one for the rest of his life.

If some of you don’t know about DJ Clark Kent. Do your hip-hop homework.
