Hey everyone, Cohen here, creative director and head writer for Hiveswap. Hopefully you’re reading this after watching the new trailer. If you haven’t watched it, go watch it. If you have watched it, go watch it again. It doesn’t cost anything, and, more importantly, no one can stop you.
OK, now you’re back. Wow. Wasn’t that dynamite? I agree.
Anyway, just wanted to give you a quick rundown on the status of Hiveswap: Act 1. We’re very, very excited about
THE GAME: The game is good, folks. It’s gorgeous, and fun, and the music is outstanding, and people say it’s pretty funny, too? We’ll see! All that’s thanks to
THE TEAM: We’ve got a great team full of outrageously skilled people, and over the next few weeks we’re going to be talking to them here about the work they’ve done for Hiveswap: Act 1. If you’ve wondered, possibly aloud, possibly at length, about why we haven’t done more of that before, it’s because they’ve been too busy doing all that work! Busy, busy bees with no time for chatter.
It’s a practice that is potentially frustrating for fans, though, which is why we’re going to be parting the curtain a little more. Because, of course, what you really want at this moment is for me to
SAY MORE ABOUT THE GAME, IDIOT: Right! So, the game is nearly done. It’s taken us a while, but we’re committed to bringing you the game you deserve, even if it means delivering it later than you deserved it. Some things take longer to implement or polish than we anticipate, but our intent is not to mislead you. I promise. We want to keep you in the loop as much as we can.
But…it’s a difficult juggling act for us. We’re trying to make a game that is fun, funny, and beautiful, and we haven’t compromised on quality in order to get it out quicker. On the other hand, we DO want to talk to you about how it’s going! On yet a third hand (or maybe back to the first hand, now hidden behind my back), we’re also committed to not spoiling every mystery the game has before you actually get to play it. These interviews we’ll be doing are our way of striking the balance between these three hands (possibly two hands, with one in flux).
The next time you hear a release date from us, it’ll be because the game is about to launch. In the meantime, we thank you, one last time, for your continued patience and understanding.

The new Young American Tracking Poll (YATP) is a first-of-its-kind quarterly survey and report that focuses on the opinions and behaviors of Americans between the ages 13 and 25 on topics in politics, policy, and civic engagement.
From its annual surveying of young Americans conducted since 2013, DoSomething.org and TMI Strategy launched the YATP in order to elevate the voices of young people in discussions of national policies and priorities. The poll brings attention to the distinct ways young millennials and Gen Z participate in their civic communities, which often contrast from beliefs and actions found in the general adult population in America.
Most often, young people are defined as 18–29 and so thinly sampled that additional segmentation within the group is impossible. And for the voices of those under 18? Nothing.
Specifically, the YATP provides an alternative to the standard approaches taken by traditional polling towards young people. Most often, young people are defined as 18–29 and so thinly sampled that additional segmentation within the group is impossible. This approach mutes the nuances of youth experience and opinions. The circumstances of someone in her late teens are very different than someone in her late twenties. And even with more narrow age-bracketing, there are major differences between urban and rural youth, male and female, and so on.
And for the voices of those under 18? Nothing. Most national polls omit 13- to 18-year-olds entirely from sampling, thereby silencing millions of young people who disproportionately rely on and are impacted by policy decisions.
Summary of Key Findings
The YATP finds that young Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of Donald Trump and his policies. For all areas where a direct comparison is possible, youth disapproval of Trump exceeds that of the general population. Specifically, American youth disproportionately disagree with Trump’s actions regarding immigration and border security.
In the months since the election, young people significantly increased their participation in organized protests, their use of technology to take and promote positions on social issues, and their use of social networks to organize others to take action.
This strong disapproval of Trump corresponds with a perceptible increase in civic participation from young Americans. In the months since the election, young people significantly increased their participation in organized protests, their use of technology to take and promote positions on social issues, and their use of social networks to organize others to take action.
Self-identified young “liberals” — one third of all young people — are driving the increase in civic participation almost entirely. This group has been two to three times more likely to take action than self-identified “moderate” or “conservative” peers since the November election.
Additionally, across a broad set of issues and policy areas, America’s young people are increasingly taking sides. On nearly every issue/policy asked about in the YATP, the percent of young people with no opinion decreased following the election.
The biggest gains in agreement went almost exclusively towards traditionally liberal positions. On topics ranging from climate change, to immigration reform, to the legalization of marijuana, a new consensus is forming among young Americans.
On topics ranging from climate change, to immigration reform, to the legalization of marijuana, a new consensus is forming among young Americans.
On several issues and policy areas, young liberals diverge from young moderates and young conservatives. The Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and identification with feminism are resoundingly unpopular with young moderates and young conservatives but are popular with young liberals. On issues of religion and security, young moderates and young conservatives are noticeably more skeptical of refugees and concerned by terrorism than are their young liberal peers.
I’ve talked with someone on the french Netflix help center/customer service live chat and:
apparently the reason why it’s cancelled is because it’s too expensive, SO we should point out that at the end of s2 the sensates are all reunited in London! 1 PLACE! The location is something they can discuss with the directors and creative writers if that’s what it takes to save the show.
what works the most is being vocal on social media because the ppl who are in charge of content are on the @netflix social medias, not on the live chats etc. So they will see us directly.
they probably didn’t expect this amount of complaint.
The woman I talked with told me that everybody’s very disappointed on her team at the tech service, they want s3 as bad as us. And they tell the ppl higher up about our complaints.
She told me that since this morning, ¾ of the people she talked with were here to talk about sense8.
Basically, we’re doing good. Don’t give up. Keep talking about it! Keep calling Netflix!

Preservation Hall is a very intimate environment. There are no

TOGETHER WITH GUCCI WE’RE CELEBRATING THE BEAUTY OF DIVERSITY AND A KALEIDOSCOPE OF COLOUR FOR SPRING / SUMMER 2017
“The fashion industry has the ability to make the less visible, visible.” ~ Jourdana Phillips
“The inspiration for the story is the sentiment of Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, “If we are going to push the conversation forward then we have to look beyond simply talking about models on the runway, and focus instead on individuality and faces that show humanity.”
Tomorrow, June 29th at 3pm EST/12pm WST I will be answering any and all questions from the Tumblr headquarters in NYC!
A bit about me:
As the Founder/CEO/Creative Director of future-forward bodywear label Chromat, I believe strongly in acceptance and inclusivity on the runways at NYFW (and was just in the new documentary Straight/Curve about the negative effect that fashion has on teen girls), I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Intel on fashion technology, and I’m so excited because we JUST released a new collaboration with MAC Cosmetics!!!
I’m from Virginia originally and could have never dreamed that I would be here now, working in fashion. I studied architecture at UVA, volunteered in the Peace Corps, worked as a day laborer with a construction crew and now I live in Brooklyn with my amazing wife Christine McCharen-Tran!

Wanna know what the future of fashion and technology holds? ASK ME
Wanna know what Christine and I do for fun? ASK ME!
