(Dec. 7) A heartbreaking work of fundraising genius
Author Dave Eggers has helped open 826 chapters across the country. The organizations encourage elementary and high school students to get creative with their writing. 826DC launched just over a year ago in Columbia Heights. The non-profit showcases some of the fiction and poetry penned by D.C. students tonight during Baby, It’s Cold Outside, a holiday fundraiser at The Gibson in Northwest.

(Dec. 8) What does your data say about you?
Facebook can be a funny place. All those opportunities to "poke", "friend", and "ignore" are explored in e-GEAUX BETA tomorrow night at Artisphere in Arlington. The improvised theater production invites audience members to provide their own Facebook information for an interactive performance that promises to challenge assumptions about personal relationships, technology and social media.

(Dec. 7-24) Eclipsed by the Cloud
For some increasingly obsolescent technology there’s Eclipsed by the Cloud showing until Christmas at Touchstone Gallery in Northwest. The exhibit features totems made out of discarded devices, including rotary telephones, iPods and typewriters.

Music: “In Motion” by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross
