Thanks, Thanksgiving

Done. Dusted. Plate licked clean. Just as fast as it came along, Thanksgiving now recedes into the past like F. Scott Fitzgerald’s boats against the current. Unnecessary literary allusions aside (and didn’t the Baz Luhrmann version just suck?), not only did it make the stomach ache, it also made the mind think. Being from the…

Trendy International: A Passion for Fashion

I have always been interested in products and consumers.

I was heavily involved in Oroton’s entry…

Making The Mo’s of It

Double-takes. Stares. The occasional eye-brow raise. Such has been the life of over 100 HBS students who have taken HBS back in time and reinstituted a fallen institution to a central place in the campus identity: the mustache. These students aren’t simply retro hipsters trying to induce flashbacks in professors and alumni who were at…

The Schwartz Collection: Interview with Gerry Schwartz

At HBS, we are fortunate to be surrounded by a diverse array of contemporary, and often thought-provoking, art. A Marina Abramovic artwork casually hangs on a wall in Aldrich, a Vik Muniz on another – works that in a museum setting would garner hours of close looking, yet at HBS, more often receive the hurried…

The Rich Port

Daniel Selikowitz, like Rosalia in West Side Story, wants to go back to San Juan.  As an Australian booking a trip to Puerto Rico, my expectations were laughably clichéd. It’ll be wall-to-wall Cancun-esque resorts, I figured, packed with passport-less mainlanders looking for an easy vacation, a pool and some seaside casino gambling. Man, was I…
