Have to admit--pretty intrigued by Ello.... Not many social networking sites have a "manifesto".
Simple, beautiful & ad-free.

I've got some great ideas for the movie, too, Jim, but so far no takers on the rights. Let me know if you haven't gotten your invitation to Ello yet--I still have one or two available.

Romney's comments: offensive to both women and men. Apparently in his world there is still a question of whether women should be in the workplace ("IF you're going to have women in the workforce"). Also in his world, fathers apparently never need care for their children. Yikes.

Story
Tagline
"If it's not fun, you're doing it wrong." Author of Super, instructional designer, experimental fiction writer.
Introduction
Aaron Dietz is the author of Super, a novel from Emergency Press about commitment, crisis, paperwork, and heartbreak. Dietz's super powers include a high metabolism and the ability to put things back where he got them. He's also pretty good at math.

As an instructional designer, Dietz has written online high school courses on computer programming, green design, and 3-D video game creation. It’s natural for him to write quizzes. He’s worked a decade in libraries. He’s also been paid to count traffic and once failed a personality test.

Dietz writes for TheNervousBreakdown.com, blogs at aarondietz.us, and is an advisory editor of KNOCK Magazine.
