So, a couple of things on this:

1. Did Google ever get things sorted out with Mountain View city council? Last I heard, the council was pretty much fighting any expansion they wanted to do. They were concerned that Google would one day die and Mountain View would be left with a huge swath of basically ghost town in their wake.

2. Uh, it's going to get really hot in there.

Yes, it could be 200 degrees in those tents.

Key provisions of the Patriot Act are expiring, including what the NSA exploits to collect data about every phone call we make. We need an expiration date on this unconstitutional surveillance. Tell Congress to vote against Patriot Act provisions that don't explicitly ban mass surveillance!

The president's rhetoric on the importance of securing mobile phone networks and devices doesn't match up with spy agency actions.

The user is drunk. An entertaining reminder about good UI.

In further news, the US House of Representatives has continued their plans to bring about the Apocalypse, passing a bill (on almost exactly party lines) to effectively ban scientists from being on the EPA's scientific advisory board. Under these new rules, anyone who has done research on anything which the board studies is considered to have a conflict of interest, and therefore cannot sit on the board. Fortunately, simply having a financial stake in the matters which the board studies does not constitute a conflict of interest, so the scientific advisory board continues to be open to corporate public affairs officers, demented preachers, or roving madmen off the street.

The bill now proceeds to the Senate, where it has been referred to the Committee on Environment and Public Works. This is the committee chaired by Sen. Inhofe of Oklahoma, author of The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future and other light classics, in which he tells us that because of the existence of God, the "arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is... outrageous." So in all, it's a good year for public affairs officers, demented preachers, and roving madmen off the street in all aspects of our government, and I forecast excellent career opportunities for each of these categories going forward.

The GOP-dominated House passed a bill Tuesday that effectively prevents scientists who are peer-reviewed experts in their field from advising the EPA.

They're not on the menu (they've been written on the board by the kitchen for at least 6 months, though), but try the pumpkin pancakes. They're really good, especially with the cinnamon butter they come with.
