So, What’s Alec Brownstein Been Up to These Days?

It’s been just over two months since Alec Brownstein left his senior copywriting gig at Y&R New York, a job he earned of course thanks to his little Google experiment. So, why the hell not bring you up to speed on his activities. Along with freelancing at Grey, Brownstein has co-created this site that teaches you how to pronounce what is perhaps the most popular surname amongst Vietnamese people: Nguyen. Brownstein and his co-conspirator Liem Nguyen are even selling t-shirts to hammer the message home. Help a brother out if you so choose (that dijon style intrigues us most).
