According to the SATI about page,
In August 2006, she started penning the blog SexandtheIvy.com while a sophomore at Harvard. Her first-person accounts of sexual experiences, depression, and the true state of undergraduate life at the world’s premier academic institution spurred campus discussion, prompted media attention, and garnered a loyal following. Quickly becoming a controversial figure, she has been criticized by some as “morally reprehensible” and praised by others for encouraging frank sexual dialogue.That's what SHE said. Though Lena is not the first nor the last to overshare, Sex and the Ivy is practically defines oversharing. Lena just types in whatever gross thoughts pop into her head, and in a sick way, it's fascinating. She lets us know way too much information way too soon. I can't unread what I've read, so instead I'm passing it on to you.
On a related note, Emily Gould wrote a brilliant piece this week for the New York Times Magazine about oversharing online titled Exposed. (It's a doozie and might take several sittings to finish... unless you have buns of steel.)
I love the piece's treatment of getting sucked into the interwebs comments vortex, being famous for fifteen people, and the public vs. private spheres. Emily's confession at the beginning that she was, "seeking gratification from strangers at the expense of the feelings of someone [she] actually knew and loved," lends an automatic authenticity and clarity to the piece. Perhaps out of habit, she is not afraid to shine a harsh objective light on herself. This is both the secret to her ingratiation and her downfall. Oh hubris!
The Firefox people have a clever little marketing ploy to announced their latest version. They are trying to break a Guiness World Record, namely, most software downloaded in 24 hours. When will that fateful download day be? Whenever they feel like it. Because they're Mozilla, that's why.
