Slice of MIT, a blog hosted by the MIT Alumni Association, presents daily doses of MIT culture — discoveries, alumni stories and campus happenings — gathered by staff, students, faculty and, soon, by guest alumni contributors such as photojournalist Owen Franken '68.
The growing Slice of MIT (alum.mit.edu/sliceofmit) blogroll includes the Running a Hospital blog by Paul Levy '72, MCP '74 as well as Climate Progress, an insider's view of science and politics by Joe Romm '82, PhD '87. Jesse Smithnosky '04 writes about making a living playing poker on Taking a Shot while Correlate by Lou Paglia MBA '05 focuses on technology and entrepreneurship.
Astronaut Mike Fincke '89 enjoyed the Slice posts about President Barack Obama's phone calls to him and his International Space Station crewmates so much, he called the MIT Club of South Texas webmaster from space!
