about this blog

I am Alex Priest. I am a DC technologist, marketer, social media user, designer, student, professional, entrepreneur, and more. I love to learn, create and explore. I want to have good stories to tell when I'm old.

This is my unofficial free space. I'll post things I like, things I design, and a little of what I learning along the way. Enjoy.

    Vision

    Chris:  RE: Jay Carney's new glasses. They're awesome.

    Me:  Unlike Seth.

    Seth:  Whatever. I guess I'll suffer with my 10/10 vision.

    Me:  You mean short-sightedness? Because that's all I seem to hear from your party. Or maybe you're just blind because none of your party leaders have any real VISION.

Visualization of Twitter Town Hall topics
Press focuses on conflict/politics while citizens focus on jobs/issues. Shocked!

The disparity in questions about congress reinforces the notion that, despite being of enormous national import, congressional (dis)functionality isn’t on too many minds outside of the Beltway. The disparity in questions about jobs reinforces the notion that reporters aren’t always tapped into the issues most pressing for the general populace. The almost complete lack of questions about education is just depressing.
