The battle to defeat the now-final TPP begins. We want your ideas for slogans to put on our protest signs!
Trade negotiators from the U.S. and its 11 Pacific Rim partners announced their agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) today, concluding the final round of closed negotiations in Atlanta and marking the culmination of seven years of secrecy. Throughout all that time, the U.S.

Been working on this with +Tony Chuinard. Think of it like fantasy sports picks bit where you get paid if someone buys your pick.

Been an interesting project with AngularJS and Google App Engine.

My newly created Android app is now up in the Play Store.  

It's a flash card app that functions as you might expect, except that it creates a spreadsheet in your Google Drive for you to enter your flash cards so you can use a real keyboard to type them in.  Tabs/sheets in the spreadsheet turn into card sets and rows in the sheets turn into cards.

I made this because I wanted a flash card app but find it frustrating to type on a touch screen.  I considered allowing users to upload a file and have the app download it or copy data via USB, but that seems annoying to do.  The obvious option would be to have a server running a simple card editor webapp, but that means users creating/managing accounts and having to store all that data.  It turns out Google Drive Spreadsheets already does all that though and makes for a perfect personal database.  So, I made Cartes use Google's handy flash card editor storage system and now users get a nice interface that they're already used to and free storage for the data.

I made an Android app to help me keep track of how I'm doing for my health in the simplest way.  With this thing I just click the good or bad button and I can see a chart later if I am doing ok.

Knowing I'm going to make myself click the bad button tends to be enough to help me avoid eating a donut or something.

The same thing could be accomplished with an existing calorie counter app or something like that, but I found that I never took the time to enter in all that data.  I made this because it requires the absolute minimum amount of effort to keep track of my progress.  In the end, I don't care how many calories I ate; I know the m&m's are bad for me, I just need to make sure I don't end up eating 8 hand-fulls of them over the course of the day (that would be 8 bad clicks now).

I made if for myself, but it's up in the Google Play store for $1, so maybe I'll make a few dollars too, which I'll try my best not to spend on chocolate. :)

This week I'm at 2/3 good.  Last week I ended with 50/50.  I'm trying to do better this time around. :)

During the past few weeks as EFF has featured the TPP's Copyright Trap, we have heard from experts from Canada, Japan, Malaysia, and New Zealand about why life plus 70 year copyright terms make no sense for their countries. The U.S. is pushing for this anyway, and other countries are under massive pressure to cave in.
