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 is a small man with a dream

Still crazy (after all these years) at work. So a light one.

In case you're still belaboring the myth about how the Stimulus didn't do anything to help our economy, here's another chart which shows its affect on unemployment. So, now you know that every time someone stands before you and says the Stimulus "failed" or "Obama's economic policies are a disaster", you have the proof that they're lying to you. (Grokked from Chang Terhune)

In response to the understanding viewpoints article I posted the other day. The response, of course, is actions speak louder than nice words. Looking at the actions of conservative who are in positions of power gives one the impressions that many liberals hold. And then you have the right who always complains about perceived "liberal bias" (this time in education, again). "To start with, if you call anything that does not meet your preconceived notion from the hard Right 'liberal' — including centrist positions a liberal might well call 'conservative' — you're going to get a rather distorted picture." (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Google glasses which are only in prototype stage. Note to Tobias Buckell, there' your lamina. And, in this internet age, the commentary has already started. (Pointed to by John)

Copying is not theft. Another, "but the dictionary says…" argument. Following this rationality, a publisher isn't stealing from you when they print and sell 20,000 copies of a book, but only pay the author for 5,000. And, it makes a false equivalency between form and content. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Alligator Quotient: It's dark in here. And stinks of crocodilian breath.
