How NYC Bloggers Celebrate The Holidays

tree.jpgLast week we were tipped to the fact that 13 New York City-based blogs had joined forces to create the ultimate holiday guide for our fair city. If you have yet to check it out, we suggest you take a minute to peruse some of the helpful tips, event listings and gift suggestions that these crafty bloggers have dug up, just for you.

For example, if you’re looking for a place to volunteer over the holidays, GiveandGetNYC.com has some suggestions for you. Or maybe it’s DIY gift wrapping ideas you seek. So check out ImprovisedLife.com. And if you’re looking for things to do this season, there’s a list of things to see in Brooklyn from BrooklynBased.net, offbeat and multicultural events for families from MommyPoppins.com, big ticket shows from NewYorkology.com, places to get a drink around the city from NYBarfly.com and things to do on the cheap from TheSkint.com.

Planning a getaway? OffManhattan.com has you covered.

And for those of you with money to burn, here’s 21 gifts over $21 from ManhattanUsersGuide.com.

Along with every post, you’ll find links to all of the other participating blogs and their two cents on the how to do up the holidays in the city.

Happy Independence Day!

DSC03170.JPGWe’re off for the day celebrating the birth of our nation, but we wanted to leave you with something today … just in case you are chained to you desk.

This week, we were lucky enough to see Kansas State University professor and anthropologist Michael Wesch‘s presentation about YouTube and Internet culture at the Personal Democracy Forum. Wesch rose to prominence in the YouTube community thanks to a short video he made in 2007 called “The Machine is Us/ing Us.” While we wait for someone to post a high res version of his presentation from Tuesday, here is a similar presentation Wesch did last year at the Library of Congress. It’s long, but its worth it.
