Harry Zieve-Cohen ’15: email@example.com
Klout, which ranks how prominent people are online, says that although I am particularly influential on the topic of “Jewish,” I also influence one hundred and eight people on eleven other topics. This makes me, for those keeping score at home, good for a Klout ranking of 56/100 (as of December 28, 2012). Of course, Klout probably is not an accurate representation of my virtual self which in turn probably isn’t an accurate reflection of my endearingly misanthropic real-world self. That self grew up Brooklyn, went to a Lower East Side Quaker high school called Friends Seminary, and attended (attends, really) the singular B’Nai Jeshurun shul on the Upper West Side. My day-to-day existence mostly consists of arguing, food, and media of various sorts—often books and newspapers. The stuff I read about (and watch) is also what I study at Midd—with uncertain success. My focus is Literary Studies but I also devote a good chunk of time to Philosophy and Political Science. I speak Spanish, but hardly fluently. That’s important to know, because conversing with me in Spanish is a good way to get me to talk less.

Keeper of the Web
Nathan Weil ’15: email@example.com
Unlike Harry, I have a Klout score of only 33/100. I am one-third influential. Tamer Nafar, an Arab-Israeli rapper, has said that if he can get 1 in 5 people at a concert to think critically about his lyrics than he has succeeded. By that standard a 33 on the Klout scale should put me over the moon – and it has. In an episode of The West Wing, Sam Seaborn calls his one good moment from an entire day in the Oval Office ‘a golf shot’. I will feel a similar sense of success if, as Keeper of the Web, I can help bring one great moment to Hillel this semester. If it ends of being more than that, well, that’s just one of the perks of the job. My name is Nathan Weil and I’m a sophomore Economics major/Mathematics minor. I love all things Kanye and Ratatouille is my favorite movie. If you can bish with that than let’s hang. Shabbat dinner on Friday work for you?
