… Hopefully. So, remember that “experiment [1]Tiffany Shlain [2] was supposed to be doing in conjunction with the keynote address she gave at general commencement about a month ago? Well, here are the results:

The good news is that Shlain forewent cheesy inspirational background music. It was an effective choice. The bad news is that all of these people are going to have their hopes dashed against the cruel, rocky cliffs of reality, like so many crippled sea lions in a storm-swept sea … filled with oil.

You couldn’t include one person who was all, “My hope for the future is that I’ll be working nine-to-five in a cubicle, because then, at least, I won’t be living in a box and bothering people with my pleas for spare change,” Tiffany Shlain? Really? Not one?! *Self slap!*

Whoa, sorry about that. We kind of let our senior year anxiety get the better of us, there. We feel a little better now. You can read Shlain’s account of preparing her speech and watch the speech itself on the Huffington Post [3]. Thoughts, anyone who was there?
