This video reminds me of this Hillary quote:

"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

Why So Blue?

A California man is blue....really blue.

People Power

Luis von Ahn is harnesing all your wasted time playing solitare to improve the interwebs one game at a time.

It's a Seti at home meets crowd farming approach to all our wasted time.

You're Fired

I have this same comic hanging on my billboard. I think I'll fire the employee who gave it to me.

Then What

Actual Headline: Giuliani, Huckabee Tied; Clinton Up. No word on what they did to her afterwards.

National ID

No, you do not have to give them your social security number.

Spider Cat

This morning the German Wife was talking very quietly to herself while making her lunch. I leaned over and said "what was that"?

Without glancing up she began to sing a little louder.

"Spider cat, Spider cat, does whatever a spider cat does..."

Cyber Sherpa

It's time for a new, anonymous, blog. Why? Because as this article points out, we're all a little Brad Pitt. I would rather my bosses, both current and future, knew as little about me as possible and when my current boss first came on board a year ago he mentioned that he had read some of my "website" stuff. So his first impressions of me came not from my work but from my blog posts.

My blog posts, as you will come to find out here, are always civil, usually thoughtful, and never crass. But that old expression about politics and religion hold true, and I leave those discussions at home....and anonymously on the web.

Cowardly? Maybe. But famous authors have often written using pseudonyms, especially when writing things of a political nature. And I kind of like my day job so I'd rather not lose it for some innocuous remark on a blog.
