Twitter Spotlight: Rod Benson

Who is Rod Benson aka @boomtho? Only the most popular pro basketball player in Korea. And an entrepreneur, graphic designer and writer too. Remember when I told you about Rod’s hilarious blog?

The dude is smart – he graduated from Berkeley. A 2012 Cal alumni publication article about Rod quoted one of his friends thusly:

“He was kind of a nerd,” says Renee Pesiri ‘07, a Berkeley law student who became friends with Benson during freshman year. “He taught me the Dewey decimal system.”

Too much Rod Benson? Never.

Twitter spotlight: Holly MacKenzie

I have met incredible people through Twitter and I have decided I need to share them — lucky you! First up, the lovely and talented Holly MacKenzie aka @stackmack.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
StackMack: Conversation, kindness and passion. If there can’t be some serious word play, I lose interest quickly regardless of the other things they’re bringing to the table. It’s cliche to say, but seeing how they treat the people around them. From the way they talk about their friends, to how they interact with taxi drivers, servers and strangers on the street, kindness owns my soul. People who are passionate about what they do or are trying to do make me swoon. Whatever you love, chase it. I love those people. I also love forearms and calves. Weird, I know.
