I've done this three times now and I'm finally getting good at it.

I'm easily amused.

A tiny change to iOS Gmail's Archive button would make for a much better experience. Simply expand the touchable area and disable the Favorite star (update: while the Archive button is visible).

I'm switching to iPhone. Here's why.

I don't think the author is really serious about this statement: "It’s time for federal authorities to step in and move the show someplace else." (I hope not, that's not how I want government to work)

The rest of the article makes sense:
"Large tech companies like to be where the highest concentration of skilled tech workers is. Entrepreneurs want to be where the venture capitalists are. Venture capitalists want to be near both the skilled workers who can staff new firms and the established firms who may buy the companies. People with skills want to go where the venture capital and the employers are."

It's a virtuous cycle and that makes it very hard for cities like St. Louis, for example, to create a comparable tech culture.

Dammit. I'm down to "12 tweets" and I have no idea how to see or delete them.

Random trivia: Calling Twitter4J's getRateLimitStatus() counts as a ding against your Twitter rate limit. Simply removing that line allowed me to plow through 2500+ deletes without a single rate limit cap.

These 12 phantom tweets will drive me crazy.
