Anil Dash: Free Publicity: Who do we help? →
moth: Anil points out that the Obama Adminstration is doing a lot more good for the world than Apple right now. If you missed his blog post earlier this week, it’s great and worth a read. I love cool stuff as much as the next guy. What leaves me at a loss, though, is how many otherwise sane and sensible people give their time and energy freely to help support a company like Apple that, despite...

The Perfect Vagina I found this documentary interesting as well as pretty shocking. Good to get some dialog about quite a taboo issue, one that we don’t talk really about with other women. Warning: some graphic images

How to Forget Fear →
psychotherapy: Imagine if you could rewrite your mind as quickly as a document on your computer. No more painful memories, no phobias or ingrained fears, just a blank slate where the scars that mark each human life used to be. This may sound like the stuff of Hollywood fantasy but last month it came a step closer to reality at New York University. By manipulating memory a research team managed...

Take my picture for when I'm famous
stopevencaring: So Barack Obama was one slick guy in college. Dude pulled off a Panama hat. No one under 40 pulls off a Panama hat. You look at his grin and it’s hard to believe he wasn’t banging the photographer. Gotta get me some pictures like that. So when I’m famous people can see I was always cool even before I was famous. You, camera girl, take my picture. Watch me smoke this. Watch me...

New data from research firm ChangeWave shows that users are definitely interested in Google’s mobile OS, with a massive jump in the number of potential buyers eyeing Android-capable phones in its latest survey. ChangeWave queried 4,068 current and potential smartphone consumers...
The psychology of ideology (The Guardian) →
psychotherapy: Steve Benen had a good piece noting that since Obama became president, US forces have taken out or apprehended several key terrorist leaders, but that the White House hasn’t called celebratory press conferences to draw conspicuous attention to them. Bush and Cheney, he avers, would make sure everyone knew about it. I think this is true. And if true, why? Well, the obvious...

From the Department of Tumblr Wishlists
poetbabble: I wish there was a Tumblr function whereby you could see how many times you’ve hearted/reblogged a specific person (not just crushes), for two reasons: 1. To determine at which point you have abdicated yourself and entered the swoon zone. Commence to either weaning or stalking IRL. 2. To determine what is redeemable / salvageable in your Tumblr relationship after someone has posted...
STOP SAYING THE DECADE DIDN’T START YET
dwineman: Listen. There are people who will tell you that “the decade” (whatever that means) doesn’t start until 2011. There are thousands of reasons to ignore these people, but here’s the best one: they’re wrong. A decade is an arbitrary span of 10 years. You can distinguish one such span from another by any identifying feature you choose. For example, the decade called “the Sixties” consisted...
