Na No Wri Mo

I am going to participate in Na No Wri Mo this month. However, instead of writing a thousand words for a novel, I am going to write a nice blog post about something relevant. Luckily, I’ve been so bad at keeping my blog updated this past year that I have plenty to write about. Over […]

Boycott the Left!

The people on the left side in this chart are spending $25 million to prevent YOU and ME from knowing what is in our food. This is anti-consumer. They SUCK and you should join my BOYCOTT of them. More information here. Boycott the left … side of this chart! (Sorry for the play on words […]

Macworld 2012 at Moscone Center West

And when you see her around the edges, you can’t help worrying how much longer she’ll be around. Macworld is turning into the iPad/iPhone show. I think three […]

It’s time to stop using GoDaddy

GoDaddy has been a supporter of nearly every intrusive government regulation imposed on the Internet by governments. Via Reddit: GoDaddy supports SOPA, I’m transferring 51 domains & suggesting a move your domain day.  And then again via Boing Boing, the adorable David Rusensko narrowly averted a Go-Daddy-caused meltdown that would have impacted tens of thousands of […]


Conservatives who turn livid when you bring up the Gingrich-hospital-wife-cancer-divorce story are the same conservatives who brought up Chappaquiddick at nearly every mention of Teddy Kennedy.
