WHEN THEY SAY ‘MINIMUM SECURITY PRISON’ THEY ARE NOT JOKING.

I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE WE WENT TO JAIL AT ALL.
I KNOW, I THOUGHT OUR WHOLE THING WAS THAT WE COULD JUST TANK THE ECONOMY AND LAY OFF A COUPLE MILLION PEOPLE AND THEN JUST COLLECT OUR BONUSES AND GO TO CABO. ISN’T THAT HOW IT WORKS NOW?
WELL, YEAH, BUT TECHNICALLY WE FILED AS AN LLC NOT A PROPER CORPORATION SO SO WE CAN’T BLAME EVERYTHING ON A FAKE ‘PERSON’ AND BUY A NEW JET.
DAMN. WELL, AT LEAST WE WEREN’T SELLING MARIJUANA TO PAY RENT OR SOMETHING.
HA HA HA! I KNOW! WE’D BE IN JAIL FOR YEARS! REAL JAIL!
WHAT’S FOR LUNCH TODAY ANYWAY?
LOBSTER, I THINK.
AGAIN? JESUS. I’M GOING TO HAVE TO HIT THE ELLIPTICALS ALL AFTERNOON TO WORK OFF THAT BUTTER.
Droplet collisions captured instantaneously create beautiful fluid sculptures that, though common, are too fast for the human eye. Here a bubble was blown onto the surface of the fluid, then a droplet was released to fall into the center of the bubble, bursting it. As that droplet rebounded in a Worthington jet, a second droplet was released and impacted the jet, creating the umbrella-like shape in the center. See Liquid Droplet Art for more photos.

Hey look, it’s the Tumblr for The Finder’s “sister show” (big brother? cousin? mother?) Bones! Do we have one for The Finder? Assuming the network would run ours, and not the writers room, then I have no idea. Maybe? Probably not. We’re all of three episodes in to our first season, after all (although we’re shooting our last episode now and the show wraps in a week and a half!). Anyway, earlier today I met with two of the lovely gals who work at Tumblr, Rachel and Danielle, who had just come from the network (and pointed me in the direction of this Bones feed) - and we had a great chat about Tumblr and TV and Twitter and WhoSay and social media and THE FUTURE and all that jazz. Anyway. Tumblr is good stuff and hopefully we’ll be seeing more TV shows and TV actors and TV writers joining the bandwagon. I mean, it’s the logical next step wouldn’t you agree? Like Twitter, but with special features! Whatever, I’m preaching to the choir here, aren’t I?
A few weeks ago Appcelerator and IDC surveyed over 2,000 developers about their mobile priorities, Google and Apple’s consolidation of mobile, and the integration of social into mobile apps. The results have been released in the 2011 Appcelerator/IDC Mobile Developer Report.
- Two-thirds of respondents believe that Google can catch up to Facebook in social with Google+. When asked why, 68% of developers say that leveraging Google’s assets (eg: Search, YouTube, Maps, etc) trumps Facebook’s social graph lead. 49% say that Google shows more innovation than Facebook with new Google+ features like circles, sparks, hangouts, etc.
- While Google+ may be the future, today 83% of developers using social in their apps say they use or are planning to use Facebook this year. Twitter is second at 73%, followed closely by Google+ (when API is released) at 72%, LinkedIn at 30%, and Foursquare at 23%.
- When asked what social capabilities are most important in their apps, developers said that features that encourage repeat usage and offer fresh content are more important than location checkins and photo sharing. In order of priority, developers use social for: notifications (52%), status updates (49%), login/identity (44%), messaging (38%), news (35%), location sharing (32%), photo sharing (31%), and friend requests (26%).
- With relatively few new product announcements this past quarter, platform priorities haven’t changed significantly. iPhone remains tops as 91% say they are ‘very interested’ in developing for the device. iPad is number two at 88%, Android pulled up a couple points with Android phone interest climbing to 87% from 85% last quarter and Android Tablets rose back to Q1 levels to 74%. We added HTML5 mobile web as a new option to rank this quarter, which comes in fifth at 66%. The second tier remains the same: Windows Phone (30%), BlackBerry phones (28%), BlackBerry Playbook (20%), HP TouchPad (18%), HP Palm Pre/Pixi (12%), Symbian (7%), and MeeGo (5%) rounding out the list. The new addition of mobile web in the middle of the pack suggests developers are seeing the increasing requirement for both a mobile app and mobile website, though the former continues to be the number one priority.

Socialism as a social or moral philosophy was based on the ideal of human brotherhood, which can never be implemented by institutional means. There has never been, and there will never be, an institutional means of making people brothers. Fraternity under compulsion is the most malignant idea devised in modern times; it is a perfect path to totalitarian tyranny. Socialism in this sense is tantamount to a kingdom of lies.
