Bwoglines: A Melange

That means “a motley assortment of things.” Seatbelts, everyone! Gulati says the U.S team was “capable of more” in the World Cup. Columbia is a partner in a jargon-y, confusing government project called the “NYC Media Lab.” Breaking: James Franco is self-important. He is also an artist. Joseph Stiglitz makes $109,919 a year is the […]

Here, we’ll prove it to you: — Columbia law professor (and subject of a 2007 Blue and White profile) Tim Wu wrote an op-ed for the New York Times about […]

48 is a good age

If you’re Sunil Gulati, of course. And he is, today, marking the first time anyone has been wished happy birthday for two consecutive years by Bwog, which hopes it will be as dashingly handsome as the U.S. Soccer Federation prez when it gets that old.

When melting into the floor isn’t enough

Bwog tipster Christopher Morris-Lent sent in the first–but certainly not the last–gem of the year from Sunil Gulati’s Principles class: Gulati, speaking about inferior goods to a [presumably female] student:  But would it hurt you to have a hot dog?  If I gave you a hot dog right now, wouldn’t it bring you some pleasure?

We know that look

Bwog would not want to be Landon Donovan–or anyone associated with the US Soccer Team–after our boys’ 2-1 loss to Ghana yesterday. Sunil was not happy. “This is where the entire world is watching,” said the United States Soccer Federation president, with the kind of icy disapproval reserved for those who confuse Lorentz curves with […]

Too Soon, Sunil. Too Soon.

John Klopfer reports: Gulati drew up this diagram for us in class today. Note the big smudges where Florida and Louisiana should be… He told us to stop making fun of his drawing, added Florida, changed his mind, erased it (“Who needs Florida, anyway?”), looked closer, smeared the crap out of the Gulf coast, and […]
