My Cousin 
------------
I have a little cousin,
Her name's Abi-ga-il.
I'd love to have a dozen
and dress them up in teal.

We'll share our toys,
and chase the boys
and set up tents outside.
The two of us will count to ten
and send the rest to hide.

Trap bugs in jars,
climb monkey bars,
and show off skateboard tricks.
Play Candyland and Uno, and maybe pickup sticks.

We'll whisper secrets in the night,
watch movies, eat popped corn.
But all that stuff will have to wait,
'cause Abigail's just born.

I would usually email an article like this to the people who I think it would touch. I'm posting it broadly because I think it would be meaningful to most everyone I know, for different reasons.

We've gotten some excellent responses to our job posting, to work with Xcential on projects around the world to define the future of technology for legislation. If you're interested, don't be shy. There are a number of projects involved, including some contract (part-time).

Open Data and the Role of Government
In my last post , I made the point that government agencies should refer to, and use, official government sources for primary law, where available. The comments, including those by Tom Bruce of Cornell's LII, and Annette Nellen of San Jose State University,...

Stunning!
 
French artist Jonathan Bréchignac elevates the humble Bic ballpoint pen to a next-level art medium with his incredibly detailed and meticulously drawn series titled The Carpets. Yes, ballpoint pen! http://makezine.com/2013/11/18/next-level-ballpoint-pen-art/
