Yes, I will miss campus and sitting in rooms learning about all sorts of things with my peers, but there are some things that I’m ready to just say goodbye to.

Titus Andronicus will be in the Glicker-Milstein Theater this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at […]

Bwog’s very own stand-up comedian theater connoisseur Dane Cook reports from the premier. This weekend’s production of Family and Other Strangers, put on by King’s Crown Shakespeare Troupe, defers from the Bard for a moment to showcase the writing of Edward Albee. Pairing two of Albee’s earliest one-act plays, the show is a satirical ride […]
Bwog apologizes profusely for the late arrival of this review. This afternoon’s technical difficulties prevented us from posting it earlier. If you can hurry to the Wien Lounge for the final performance of The Winter’s Tale, do so now. It begins at eight—run! As odd as it may seem there are traces of Othello, Lear […]
Last night, Bwog enjoyed the literary and cuisinary culture of the Latino-Caribbean with the volunteers and novice poets of Voices UnBroken. Bwog arrived to the Voices UnBroken Poetry Slam a little late last night, but there were still plenty of maduros to be eaten and plenty of amateur poets to be heard. The reading drew […]
While the campus prepares for the visit of the two presidential candidates, students have already gotten started on the fall election. the College Democrats, MSA, and Free Culture are co-sponsoring a campus-wide voter registration initiative, modeled on the popular CUAssassins game that every year afflicts students with amusingly high levels of paranoia. Teams of students […]
Free theater is one of the many perks of a being a Columbia student. Camino Real is an opportunity to see the work of young professionals that should not be missed. The final two performances are today at 2pm and 8pm at the Riverside Theater on Claremont and 120th St. As Janis Joplin puts it:“Freedom’s […]

The unfortunate tipster has not been sued by the RIAA (yet?), but according said tipster, CUIT has reportedly confirmed that one […]
Free Culture at Columbia has come out with some pretty cool stuff in its brief history: the Core on Flash drives, CULator, this gem of a protest video. Now, under the guidance of founder Brendan Ballou, they’ve transcended the Columbia plane and gone global. Allied with One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), Ballou and co. are set […]
Free Culture at Columbia–the group that showed you how to hide from CUIT–is now handing out another 250 of its high-price-defying flash drives loaded with public domain versions of all the Lit Hum and CC texts. You’re not going to miss this this one, 2011–thousands of dollars saved and a movement joined (although it’s up […]
In case you don’t regularly frequent the world of tech-geekery, pay a visit: there’s some crazy shit going down in freedom-of-informationland. Bwog freelancer Kate Redburn summarizes. It seems Columbia students aren’t the only ones having trouble with copyright law. Yesterday, there was an internet revolution on Digg.com, the popular website-rating site, over the “digging” of […]
1. Free Culture Columbia, the rabble rousing group that brought you online privacy, is now saving you freshmen a lot of money: a little piece of plastic loaded with $300 worth of CC texts in the public domain (that’s pretty much everyone but Foucault, who’s still under the thumb of publishing companies). On Thursday at […]
If you haven’t had the chance to swing by their table for the cookies, stickers and flyers of information out on College Walk today, Free Culture @ Columbia is currently launching CU-LATOR, its new (and cleverly titled) software through its website. Basically, CU-LATOR is a program designed to encrypt web activity on your computer so […]
