- Artist rendering, released by Theatre for a New Audience, shows a view of the planned 299-seat auditorium that will house the theater company in Brooklyn. Brooklyn Eagle

- Already with the nasty Jewish-themed political digs: Republican David Storobin is demanding that Democrat Lew Fidler apologize for saying Storobin was “embarrassed by his ties to skinheads and neo-Nazi groups and white supremacist groups." (All four of Storobin's grandparents' entire families were wiped out in the Holocaust.) CBSlocal

- Google stereotypes you by what you read: if you read about food you're a girl; if you read about tech or business you're a guy. But it seems like they're wrong much of the time, especially when it comes to women. Gawker

- Get ready to hear nothing but Facebook, Facebook, Facebook for the next few days: IPO to be filed today. NY Magazine
