  1. If the internet is any indication, the progressives have already won.

  2. I've been messing with Google+ all evening, and I like it a lot. In comparison, Facebook feels unintuitive, bloated, and out-of-date. Not wanting to keep up with two social networks, I can see myself migrating over there permanently. Now if only everyone would follow me, I'd have no reason to stay here.

  3. TIL: Starbucks has a pro-gun agenda, and allows open carry in their stores that are located in states that allow open carry. Cool!

  4. Some of what has been said in this thread has been surprising, given that the people participating are supposedly rationally minded. Reidy has the right of it, and has explained it well, so not much else needs to be said. Still, I'd like to share my personal experiences, with the hope that someone might better understand how choosing volunteer work can be one of the most incredibly selfish things a person can do. I was born to dysfunctional parents, who divorced when I was 3 years old. My father disappeared, leaving my brother and I to be raised solely by an emotionally unstable mother who

      Oh to be able to play it for the first time again.

  6. This "Societal Impact of Technology" class is all over the place. Last week I was reading articles that were singing the praises of capitalism. This week, the assigned articles read like Karl Marx's journals.

  7. So, today I noticed that pirate boots have come into style. I see women wearing them everywhere. To any venture capitalists: I've got a great idea for a chain of eye patch and pirate hook stores. Get in on this quickly! I'm sure I'm not the only one to realize that these pirate boots are just the beginning of a pirate craze.

  8. If you are ever given the choice between renting a textbook online through CourseSmart and buying the text outright, don't think twice: buy the book. What could have been something very convenient is making me wish I was carrying around a 15 lb. book instead.

  9. This "Societal Impact of Technology" course is turning out to be very interesting. The first reading assignment highlights the importance of free markets to prosperity, and provides historical examples in support of the claim (Europe, China, and the Middle East in the Middle Ages). Good stuff.

  10. Does anyone have any recommendations for tech, engineering, and science websites? I need some new sources of info.

      This website is pretty cool for lectures on all sorts of subjects.

  13. I read Grant Morrison's "Arkham Asylum" last night, and I'm still thinking about it some 16 hours later. His story combined with Dave McKean's art impacted me in a way no comic ever has. It actually made me uncomfortable, and I'm not exactly sure what to think about that.

  14. One day I wanna copy someone's status word for word and see if they notice.

  15. It's a beautiful day here, and the forecast says it will get down into the 20s tonight! Huzzah! I thought Winter would never arrive.
