I don't know that there is anything out there that matches Twitter for the type of news I want to be aware of. I really think the quality of Twitter is entirely dependent on the people/groups you follow. Same with my RSS feed. I've curated the type of content I want to see. My mother and I always joke about her internet and my internet because we are exposed to radically different things.

When I worked at Microsoft as a v-dash I had paid sick/vacation/holidays, fair market wage and medical. If you don't have those things at working a contract at Microsoft then the problem is your agency and not Microsoft.

I had to defend I Know Why the Cage Bird Sings to the school board in ninth grade because a parent complained about the book. The teacher who taught it left that year so it became a moot point, but I'd like to think they would have let her keep teaching the book based on her students stellar oratory skills.

But the fact remains that Apple and publishers colluded to fix prices of e-books. And that's illegal.

I'm in the my job forbids it group. Which is a shame because I've always wanted to try edibles.

I look forward to a series of articles by The Stranger looking into the religious affiliations of all businesses in Seattle.

All of these things are placebo. You get better when your immune system has fought of the invaders.

I am delighted by everything in this video. So psyched for this new album.

Just had a burger at the Herfys in Redmond this weekend. Single burger with cheese and grilled onions. Correct proportion of all elements. Fries were average, but burger was A+.
