Might just wait to see if David Kaneda puts anything up for sale first though… Hoping to dive in this weekend. Probably going to start with my old daily log theme, but any requests? Mouth starts watering. Remembers broke, mouth dries...

Call Me Fishmeal.: An Open Letter to Steve Jobs... →
Enforcing patents is wrong. You’ve famously taken and built on ideas from your competitors, as have I, as we should, as great artists do. Why is what HTC has done worse? Whether an idea was patented doesn’t change the morality of copying it, it only changes the ability to sue. But when you sue someone for doing something you do yourself, you become one of the bad guys. Can you name a company you...

A team of behavioral economists from Switzerland and Australia have published a new paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of...
Ironic Sans: Idea: The Email Abstract Field →
Sometimes I write too-long emails. Before I hit send, it occasionally occurs to me that if I got an email that long I would probably dread reading it. But there are times when a long email is necessary. For example, sometimes you need to tell a company every detail of how awful your experience with their product was before you ask for a refund. Or you need to explain to your boss how much money...
