Scott Glosserman
After co-writing, producing and directing the clever horror movie Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, Scott Glosserman (C'99, Friars) is soon to complete his next project (as a producer and co-director) and it has to do with a different type of horror - — me, you, and thousands of other users taking over responsibilities for Britannica and The World Book.

In his documentary Truth in Numbers?, Scott takes us on the journey about the phenomenon that Wikipedia has become.

Per Scott,
"The question of whether you and I should be charged with canonizing the sum of human knowledge or whether that should be left to the scholars/experts really intrigues me. I think it’s safe to say that we’re among a populist revival era right now and nowhere is that more acutely reflected than on Wikipedia. If knowledge is power and history really is written by the winners, then Wikipedia, already the second most widely read publication in human history, clearly demonstrates this power shift towards "The People". The documentary tries to explore implications of that, among other things."

Check out his trailer above!

Did you see Harris Cohen (C'95, DTD, Penn Medical Scholar, West Philadelphia Tutoring Project) on Jeopardy last week?

This family physician won the first two nights (Game 1: $9400, Game 2: $8400) until he was defeated on the 3rd show.

Check out the edited clip above from Harris' first night's win and find out the "silly" question Harris asked Alex Trebek when he first tried out for the show as a teenager!

Jeweler Kim Rittberg
There seems to be many Penn alumni with multiple careers.

Just a week ago, I posted a story about THESE former college roommate lawyers with a jewelry business.  Now news of another alum with a TV day job with a similar side passion for designing jewelry!

When she's not producing and writing for "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" on Fox News, Kim Rittberg (C'02, UA, Kappa Alpha Theta) is a jewelry designer with her own jewelry line - k ritt jewelry.

The line has been featured in Women's Wear Daily, Life & Style, Playboy, NY Daily News, nymag.com, Scheckys, CW11, NY1, Newsday, NY Post, worn by Heidi Klum and Sarah Silverman and has been sold at Henri Bendel in New York and other boutiques in Manhattan.

Click HERE to find out more about:
  • what inspired Kim to pursue her own dreams
  • her attention-getting signature piece: the "Asymmeterical Necklace"
  • her career working in television
And apparently juggling careers runs in Kim's family.  Check out the post I did on her Penn alum brother Matt Rittberg HERE.
