…that shared workspaces increased productivity, then why do they all have their own offices?
Gen. Keith Alexander addressed some of the allegations against the NSA at a cybersecurity conference today. Here’s the money quote. Ok, it’s really the only quote, but you get the idea: “NSA does collect information on terrorists and our national intelligence priorities but we are not authorized to go into a U.S. company’s servers and […]
Bwahahahahahahhahahahahahhahahahah You know, there was a time when I thought that the Wall Street Journal was a dull and stuffy publication that chronicled the comings and goings in high finance. It was a staid, responsible periodical that could be counted on to accurately recount the previous day’s trading on the stock exchange, but offered little […]
On one hand, it’s a little thrilling to see anyone described as a “rogue archivist.” On the other hand, the idea that such a thing would be needed is kind of terrifying, isn’t it? Carl Malamud’s rogue activities are restricted to publishing laws. And by “laws”, I mean things like “building codes.” The idea that […]

Normally, I’m all for compensating police for trauma suffered in carrying out their difficult, dangerous, and thankless job. Of course, in this particular […]
Ok, for the time being, I’m moderating comments. I will probably open itt up at some point, but since the volume is still really low, I’m using the moderate function just to ensure that I don’t miss anything. Pretty much any comment will be approved so long as it relates to the post. For example, […]
The Wall Street Journal has a nice article explaining why Hall and Oates belong in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It’s “nice”, but, except for a solid quote from Letters to Cleo’s Kay Hanley, it’s not terribly illuminating even if it does reach the correct conclusion. The tone of the article is defensive […]
