What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo skates through hurdles and jumps fast over thin ice

Yesterday's linkee-poo didn't happen. Sorry about that. Seems that the Universe loves to make my life crazy just before I do anything for me (see earlier stories about Viable Paradise and note this weekend is Confusion). So busier than a one-legged man at an alligator farm. Or, something like that.

This is what the future of the web might bring with HTML5. While nice for a demo, it also has some interesting content. (Pointed to by Dan)

Patrick Nielsen Hayden expounds on SOPA/PIPA. Smart man he is.

25 things writers should start doing. From youknowwho.

The new American Family infographic of a Pew Poll."A new 'marriage gap'… is increasingly aligned with a growing income gap. Marriage, while declining among all groups, remains the norm for adults with a college education and good income but is now markedly less prevalent among those on the lower rungs of the socio-economic ladder. The survey finds that those in this less-advantaged group are as likely as others to want to marry, but they place a higher premium on economic security as a condition for marriage…" So, if you're a conservative who wants to "save marriage", I guess you need to line up with those who are for balancing out the income disparity, like OWS. You know, unless you're just blowing smoke about it and really don't care. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

In case you think we're all post-racism, think again. Having lived outside of Cincinnati (and worked inside) I can't say I'm surprised. (Pointed to by John)

Ah, the best health care system in the world at work. And just as a reminder, the ACA really won't change much of this. Except that instead of COBRA, you could get somewhat decent prices for individuals on state health care exchanges. While I haven't had the same problems to the same extent, I have dealt with the same problems with my own employer based health care (ie. not as a "former employee"). (Grokked from Jay Lake)
