Tufts alum Dan Lewis, A00, the director of new media communications for Sesame Workshop, the non-profit organization which brings Sesame Street to the world, authors a daily email called “Now I Know.” Dan writes about the project:
We’ve all heard the adage “you learn something new every day.” It’s definitely true. Want to keep learning all sorts of interesting things? “Now I Know” is my free daily email where I share these things. No more than once a day. No spam. Things that I find genuinely interesting, such as:
Carrots used to be purple!
Kentucky isn’t contiguous — part of it is connected to Tennessee, but not Kentucky itself.
TV shows use the same prop newspaper, and have been for decades
Abraham Lincoln created the Secret Service — on the day he was shot!
And why the Leaning Tower of Pisa leans.”
