  1. 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.

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

  8. 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 In comparison, Facebook feels unintuitive, bloated, and out-of-date.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.

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

  10. I think the worst of my Batman fever is over. Unfortunately, I'm coming down with a huge case of The Walking Dead-itis.

  12. 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.

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

  14. 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.

  15. My total profile views are: 4444 Find out your total profile views http://apps.facebook.com/profviewsxcount/
