Hey, Paul Krugman, Where Are You? 

Here's a video in honor of this week's Money Issue of Seven Days, which hits the racks tomorrow. It's from prolific singer-songwriter Jonathan Mann, who posts a new music video to YouTube every day. Every day. Which might explain why his choruses aren't catchier.

Today's song is about Jerry Springer. There was one a week ago about saving newspapers. In this one from March 17, Mann asks why the Nobel-Prize winning economist Paul Krugman isn't involved in the Obama administration in some way. Here's an excerpt:

Timothy Geithner is like some little weasel.
And wasn't he in a position of power when all this shit went down in the first place?
When I listen to you, things seem to make sense.
When I listen to him, all I hear is BLAH BLAH BLAH.
Hey Paul Krugman, where the hell are ya man?
Cause we need you on the front lines, not just writin' for the New York Times.

As of this morning, the video containing this timely little tune had been viewed more than 155,000 times on YouTube.

Thanks, Judith, for the tip.

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
