"We believe the next chart is striking. Note that, for all its faults, Dukakis’ coalition in 1988 was fairly balanced. [...] But from there on, each election shows the gap between rural areas and urban areas expanding:"

For the democratic party, this should be a very telling and scary chart. They are leaving vast stretches of land behind, while at the same time not really gaining that much traction in the big cities.
As a few observant readers have noted, one thing that has been missing entirely from this series is race. This is a bit odd, given that virtually all election analysis this cycle has focused on that...

wow, and I guess in the US you need a Master's Degree in Analytics to figure THAT out.
Which might be one cause of the whole disaster..

The industry really needs to find better ways to work with ads and most importantly: Respect the users and their UX while doing so.
 
Adtech-Praxis: Statt die Produzenten guten Contents zu bezahlen, kann man einfach die Leser dieses Contents auf billigeren Werbeplätzen adressieren.

About a week after our launch, I was seated at a dinner next to a major advertising executive. He complimented me on our new site’s quality and on that of a predecessor site we had created and run, AllThingsD.com. I asked him if that meant he’d be placing ads on our fledgling site. He said yes, he’d do that for a little while. And then, after the cookies he placed on Recode helped him to track our desirable audience around the web, his agency would begin removing the ads and placing them on cheaper sites our readers also happened to visit. In other words, our quality journalism was, to him, nothing more than a lead generator for target-rich readers, and would ultimately benefit sites that might care less about quality.

Last Saturday, as the New England Patriots were sloppily beating the Houston Texans 34–16 in a playoff game, I wanted to look at the highlight video of a play using the NFL app on my iPad. To watch...

come on everyone, Events will be back!

Probably in slightly worse shape than before, and searching for stuff is still utterly broken, not to mention that the once nice and orderly timeline has arrived at the point where I more reliably find +Kristian Köhntopp s post crossposted on Facebook than here on G+.

And the same thing will now happen to comments, oh joy of joys. +Google+, you're gettin worse, not better.
 
It also means it’s time to say goodbye to classic Google+ on the web, which we’ll be turning down on January 24.

Well, that sucks.
From better commenting, to showing you more of what matters, to bringing back Events, we’re making a bunch of improvements to Google+ based on your feedback.

my favourite cover of the year so far :)
 
FEMININE ANTI-COSMIC NIHILIST MAGIC OF DEATH

You have been lied to all your life. You’ve been told that magic is meant to be in the hands of old bearded men of kindly paternal disposition, protecting the status quo. You’ve been told about young men destined for greatness and learning to command power that is rightfully theirs. When women are shown to possess magical power, they are scantily class Enchantresses, housewives duped by the devil, feeble old crones who hate the young, or precocious young girls eager to prove themselves to the boys.

Stories all constructed to comfort and pacify you. To give you heroes and role-models to rely on, to give you villains than you can sneer at and be confident of their defeat. They make you feel so safe.

But you are not safe.

Upon the solar winds ride the cosmic keys to our creation and times, received by women with but one desire: tear reality asunder. Now they have the means. They have always had the will. Existence is over.

Vaginas are Magic! is a book of blasphemous, dangerous magic featuring spells that only women characters can cast. It also includes a new magic system for use with Lamentations of the Flame Princess and all other traditional class-and-level tabletop role-playing games.

(Book's almost done, and I'll have to do a bit of fundraising starting when it's completely in the can, hopefully at the end of the week. There won't be a pile of extra copies this time out, so if you don't have a local store, joining the fundraising will be the way to get yourself a copy and help get this weird thing into peoples' hands worldwide. Much more info about the book when that starts. The pre-order/sponsorship drive will last one week.)

Gangs & Bullshit. It is fun!
Gangs & Bullshit. One of the nicest and also to me most intriguing RPG publishers I know these days is Paolo Greco with his Lost Pages. His stuff is whimsy, well made and often bafflingly strange. Where Lamentations of the Flame Princess stuff is heavy-metal gore weird, the Cthonic Codex for ...

We've got bugs, we got the best bugs. Boy, our bugs are so awesome, you wouldn't believe it.

Except you would, because you're an even better QA person, who can run the regular testplan for our apps and also want to implement automatic testing for everything.

And yes, there are cookies, and I'm not talking about the bits on your harddrive variant...

yeah... so: #FifteenminutesofGooglePlusHate  time:

A while ago, someone posted that idea where you played a group of henchmen, instead of a normal character. I commented on it, but is there ANY way to find that post again? By "hey, I commented on this"?

Maybe I should join a social network made by a search company instead...

Only good thing when you have a cold where you're coughing your lungs out - you can catch up on shows. Finished Designated Survivor Season One and boy did someone make up for 24 here.

No entry fee, and open 24 hours - the animals are all from the same climate zone as the park itself, and most of them even from the same region. All habitats are rather generous and nicely embedded into the local forest too.

Adorable Red Pandas. What more could you want?

Had the salmon, and it was delicious and presented really well, with the hollandaise sauce being tangy and tart, but not overwhelmingly so, the vegetables still al dente and with their full flavour.

Hier gibt es Mittagstisch in lecker und für faires Geld - immer weniger als 7 Euro für Suppe, Hauptmahlzeit & Dessert. Stets auch immer mindestens eine vegetarische Option die geschmacklich auch absolut gleichwertig zu den fleischhaltigen Varianten ist. Einzig der mitunter (baulich bedingte) hohe Geräuschpegel im Laden hält mich davon ab, permanenter Stammgast zu sein.
