Anyone have a Doxie? Curious to hear your thoughts on it for going paperless?
I've been using my Doxie Go scanner for the past two years. It's a portable scanner small enough to keep in a drawer for when you need it. Doxie just updated..

I guess you'd end up with better quality than using a smartphone as a scanner, but I've found the results passable that way.

I have gotten a lot of grief for being outspoken on open but in all honesty it is something we must strive for in open source projects
One thing I have tried to advocate for no matter what project it is I’m contributing to is good process and transparency. You would think that things like good process and transparency come natural...

"We all deserve compassion, and to live online and off in a more compassionate world"
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

“I would like to thank the Mozilla Foundation for the first draft of my remarks tonight,” the chairman said, “and President Obama for his edits.”
Tom Wheeler was feeling the heat. It was August and the head of the Federal Communications Commission was sitting on the deck of his family’s vacation home on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Sweat dripped onto the paperwork before him. For months, the tall, bespectacled Wheeler had been consumed by an arcane but important debate over how to regulate...

Fubonn's is essentially a Walmart of Asian Foods and has a huge selection of food, beverages and other stuff from any region of Asia you can name. They have a great number of restaurants and other shops all within the mall.

Biddy's during the evenings is often packed but even worse the music is usually deafening and it takes forever to get a drink from bartenders who are inattentive. Maybe the experience is different during the day but at night I would avoid it.

I have been to Dig A Pony twice for events and the decor inside is really nice and the bartenders are very friendly. The biggest turn-off I have is the regulars which seem to be a mix of hipster and yuppies.

I really enjoy Bipartisan Cafe's line up of cold and hot beverages, sandwiches, soups and pastries. The staff their will make you feel at home and the decor is very old americana.

Paiton has been my neighborhood Thai restaurant that I like the most. The quantity and quality of food is always good and the costs are totally affordable. Paitong makes one thing most Thai restaurants do not which is a Gluten Free dessert that resembles an egg roll.

Local sustainable burger chain... Food is decent but not too much better than a major chain.
