Social Experiment of the Day: Providence-based mobile app consultant Jonathan Stark recently posted his Starbucks mobile-app code to his website just to see what would happen.
After a while he discovered that many people were putting in as much, if not more, than what they were taking out. By yesterday afternoon, “Jonathan’s Card” — which had an initial balance of $30 — had facilitated $3,651 worth of transactions, with nearly 200 donating to the cause.
“It’s been a bit emotional, actually,” Stark told CNN. “People’s reactions have ranged from accusing me of stealing to thanking me for renewing their faith in humanity.”
Stark denies any professional ties to Starbucks, but the company is happy to be involved just the same. “We think Jonathan’s project is really interesting and are flattered he chose Starbucks for his social experiment,” Starbucks director of executive communications Gina Woods is quoted as saying. “We’re curious to see how his project continues to evolve.”
Jonathan’s Card has a dedicated Twitter feed which provides real-time updates on the account’s present balance.
underwear right to my door, just like mama used to.
Name: Man Packs
Mission: Keeping the men of the world in clean underwear
How it Works: Listen up, men folk. Man Packs is a subscription service for your underwears (and socks and undershirts). Think of it like Netflix for your unmentionables…except of course you don’t send them back.
1) Choose your package 2) Choose your style of undies 3) Receive a Man Pack in the mail every three months. Easy as pie.
Man Packs recommends the Man Pack Package, which includes two underwear, two undershirts and two pairs of socks every three months, a combo and frequency they think is perfect for keeping your underwear drawer fresh. At $24 per package, we think it’s a reasonable price to pay for clean skivvies.
The inspiration for Man Packs came from similar “sockscriptions” that have gained traction in the UK. For now Man Packs offers exclusively Hanes products, so if you’re Fruit-of-the-Loom-loyal, you’re out of luck.
What brands would you like to see offered from Man Packs?
Apparently to be a cool new social network these days, you must be misspelled and have more Rs than necessary.

Stop What You’re Doing And Watch The Hell Out Of This of the Day: Ben Folds took to Chatroulette last night during a concert in Charlotte, North Carolina, to perform an “ode to Merton” — his Chatroulette-trolling, behind-a-hoodie-hiding sound-alike.

I was pranked called at 5 am at SXSW
What I think is interesting here is that like I have said many times, we now live in a very transparent world and every interaction maybe recorded, The question is, if I handled this differently would it have impacted how some may look at me?
