Evan Carmi ’13, also known on Wesleying as ehc, wrote an e-book called “How to Get a Google Internship,” which has tips for how to get software engineering internships at companies like Google, the New York Times, and start-ups. He currently works for the start-up Brewster, and has worked on the New York Times London Olympics website, schoolbook.org (collects data about NYC schools), and a bunch of other cool stuff. He also did this impressive thing:
Served as Chief Technology Mastermind for wesleying.org, a popular blog about student life at Wesleyan University. While an undergraduate at Wesleyan University, I moved the WordPress site to a dedicated Linode VPS and optimized the server to handle increased traffic. I also completed a major redesign of the site in January 2013.

Write Better Together: an inside look at a new generation of social networks and websites that empower writers
A talk by Molly Barton ’00
Ms. Barton is teaching the senior seminar for Wesleyan’s Writing Certificate this spring. Formerly the Global Digital Director at Penguin Random House, she founded a start-up inside Penguin called Book Country, “the most supportive writing and publishing community on the web” – where writers can get feedback on their manuscripts, and if they desire, publish them as e-books. Barton left Penguin in February to work more closely with the NYC tech and start-up community. She is working on a number of undisclosed digital initiatives with major media companies, and serving as strategic advisor to publishing related start-ups in New York City and Silicon Valley.

“Concerts on Foss: now more than ever!”
Word gets out pretty easily, so I’m basically just confirming what many of you already know. Here’s the Spring Fling 2014 Line-up, courtesy of Spring Fling Committee:
CHANCE THE RAPPER
This year’s lineup still follows the loosely defined Spring Fling template of “rap act, indie-ish buzz band, raucous opening act” of the past few years, allowing us to reuse this sentence again and again. Some quick overviews and music from the artists are after the jump.
