the gud stuff: midweek roundup Jan 30, 2013


I’m back with some of this weeks standouts. Enjoy!


  • Kathleen Wynne won the Ontario liberal leadership bid this past weekend. You can catch her acceptance speech here.
  • The U.S. Defence Secretary has called for ending the ban on women in combat.
  • I’m really thankful my personal information wasn’t part of the near 600,000 students whose personal information was lost via their student loan data. This is not good at all.


  • Canadian Tire has agreed to an 8 year commitment as a premier national partner with the Canadian Olympic Team. I think its a good call, Canadian athletes are largely underfunded.


  • Slopestyle is making its debut at the next Olympics in Russia and 19-year-old Mark McMorris is setting himself up well for it.



  • Facebook is launching Graph Search and it’s pretty wild/creepy how much you can find out about people. Just look at some of these actual Facebook Graph Searches.
  • Like Tegan and Sara? Like Andy Samburg? Like pop culture references? Enjoy this.
  • While we are talking about Andy Samburg, in case you haven’t seen Lonely Island’s YOLO video you should really watch it now.
