The Beat Coffeehouse and Records – Blog.
Check out “The Beat Coffeehouse” located at 520 E. Fremont and 6th. Not only is The Beat one of the newest local coffeehouses to pop up in town, this is one of the few places that offers you Open Mic Mondays (bringing you local poets, musicians and other artsy types), and live bands to indulge in while sipping on your Caramel Latte. And if you desire some groovin’ tunes while tightening up your blog, then you simply need to look over your shoulder for a wide selection of some of the best classics that VINYL has to offer. If you find one you like, you even have the option to take it home with you! As one of the many new businesses to open up, helping to revive the downtown Las Vegas area, “The Beat Coffeehouse.” is definitely a place to visit and watch…
The Beat Coffeehouse is open daily from 7am through midnight. Open on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am (closing at 5pm on Sundays)
As you may have heard, today marks the loss of one of the most revered minds in not only the tech information society, but also in to the world of activists who every day, commit their lives challenging others to make a difference.
Aaron Swartz was tragically found dead in his Brooklyn apartment January 11th, 2013, at the young age of 26.
The young demiurge is best known for his relentless efforts attempting to make information readily available to the public. He was also one of the founding partners of the information sharing site “REDDIT.” http://www.reddit.com. Some sites have stated that Aaron may have been suffering from a long-term bought with depression. He had previously gotten into some steam after removing files from the Massachusetts Institue of Technology’s JSTOR datatbase (JSTOR is a popular online database of scholarly journals and research studies). http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/09/aaron-swartz-felony/all/
This is a humungous loss to the world of activists everywhere. We can all learn from this tragic loss and should take the time to really assess what it means to be “connected” in the age of information technology.
Aaron Swartz may you rest in peace. You will truly be missed.

Activism is a thankless yet utterly noble job. Take time to do something for another, whether big or small, you never know how your actions will affect another.
