Irving’s and the Twitter Special

A little over a week ago, Irving’s became the first business (that we know of) in State College to offer a special deal to its Twitter followers.


We thought the special was interesting– and delicious– so we visited Irving’s a few days ago to talk to owner Marya Schoenholtz about the promotion.

Irving’s isn’t the only business to use social media in State College. Check out this Collegian article for a few more examples (though most of them are only on Facebook and MySpace).

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
