+Dwolla​​ is awesome, because...

"The idea of being able to pay ... without [them] receiving any sort of sensitive financial information"

"reducing payment and money transfer wait times from the usual 24- to 48-hours, to a transfer that happens nearly instantly"

"the cost that comes with trying to process a paper check, ... on average, it’s like seven bucks, so if we can get that cost down to $0.25 through a payment mechanism that doesn’t require you to protect financial information – why wouldn’t you?"
A new generation of payment technologies could help transform the federal government's image while simultaneously protecting sensitive consumer data.<br /><br />

Amazing, and a different perspective on historical archery.

Very interesting perspective on addiction, the real driver, and how to help.
h/t +Emlyn O'Regan
 
"The results of all this are now in. An independent study by the British Journal of Criminology found that since total decriminalization, addiction has fallen, and injecting drug use is down by 50 percent. I'll repeat that: injecting drug use is down by 50 percent. Decriminalization has been such a manifest success that very few people in Portugal want to go back to the old system. The main campaigner against the decriminalization back in 2000 was Joao Figueira, the country's top drug cop. He offered all the dire warnings that we would expect from the Daily Mail or Fox News. But when we sat together in Lisbon, he told me that everything he predicted had not come to pass -- and he now hopes the whole world will follow Portugal's example."
New evidence about addiction isn't just a challenge to us politically. It doesn't just force us to change our minds. It forces us to change our hearts....

I didn't vaccinate my son with those particular vaccines for precisely the same reasons!

Finally a sane and logical anti-vaxxer voice
We're not ashamed to say that there are many vaccines we haven't given our child. Here's why… Pertussis, also known as “whooping cough”, is a bacterial disease that can permanently injure or kill a child. Despite the pertussis epidemic currently sweeping California, we didn't vaccinate our son ...

Get your art seen!
 
Hey photographers!

The Southern Minnesota Poets Society does an exhibit every year called Image and the Word in which poets write poems about neat photos, and both are displayed in a for-realz art gallery for a few months.

If you've taken photos that tell a story or are otherwise inspirational, please submit them! 

(You have to create an account, but that's simply to keep track of the photo submissions with artists, etc. There's a possibility that folks might purchase some art, so feel free specify a price, if you like. The deadline is tomorrow, so don't delay!)
The Image and the Word is a photography-inspires-poetry art exhibit annually produced by Derek Liebertz and Yvonne Cariveau with the wonderful cooperation of the Southern MN Poetry Society and the Bend of the River Photography Club.

Deliberately making it difficult to stop doing business with you is not a good business model, +SiriusXM​.  It makes people want to complain about you to their social networks, while still going ahead and cancelling their subscriptions.

Yeah, that's definitely a turn off.  I was considering actually paying for that after my trial expired - between this and their shady marketing/harassment I've seen them do, I'm considering against it.  Shady businesses are going to be shady.

Being on the mailing list of Louis C.K. alone is entertaining:

"Dear friend,

Hi.  It's Louis CK here to make sure everyone knows that my show show tomorrow at Madison Square Garden has been canceled.  All ticket holders will automatically get a refund.  I am really sorry about this and I am surprised to learn as I write this that there is only one L in the word canceled.  I'll have to take my phone's word for it.  But it doesn't look right to me.

In any case, there seems to be a massive storm approaching New York City.  They are calling this storm "historic" which.... Well I didn't know you could call a thing historic if it hasn't happened yet.  But I'm not one to defy future historic events.  And I have to be respectful of the responsibility I have to the 15,000 people who are holding tickets to the show and could be stranded somewhere historically trying to get to or from my show.  I think it's clearly better that I alter history in the name of safety and cancel.  Besides, if you've ever tried to get your deposit back when you rent a banquet hall for a wedding that gets snowed out, you don't want to even know what the deposit is on Madison Square Jesus Christing Garden is.

So.  No show.  I will be on Letterman tonight, though.  So you can yell boo right at my stupid and very handsome face on your tv screen or on your paper towel or your watch or whatever you view Letterman on.

Also I will be contacting you very soon about my new standup special which will be historically available only on my website louisck.net very soon.

I really want to thank everyone who came to the shows at MSG.  It was an incredible experience.  The audiences were great.  And the crew at MSG is classy and professional.

Okay.  That's it.  I have to do some laundry now.

Take care of yourself and don't be a jerk to people.

Louis CK."

Good on EFF, for sticking to their guns.
 
"Lots of developers hold their nose and sign the agreement despite these onerous conditions, and that’s understandable, but we're the fucking EFF."
Today we launched a new app that will make it easier for people to take action on digital rights issues using their phone. The app allows folks to connect to our action center quickly and easily, using a variety of mobile devices.

I don't feed trolls. I burn them.
Introduction
I love disruptive technology, not just what's hot, but that which is truly revolutionary.  That is left intentionally broad-brushed.  Technology should make our jobs easier, our efforts more effective, and give us more time to enjoy life.  So I post publicly about technology, privacy, and the occasional red herring.

I work with storage, mobile, and "cloud", and tend not to dwell on one thing too much when something better comes along.
Bragging rights

The free move-in truck rental is very nice to have, but can be a little difficult to schedule. Melissa was very helpful resolving truck scheduling.

This clinic has welcoming offices and friendly, helpful staff. We generally get right into a room for appointments, and their pediatrics staff is amazing.

I have always been very satisfied with my service at Luther Hopkins Honda, and my latest visit is no exception. They do good work, they're friendly, and don't push unnecessary services.

Every time I have used or attempted to use their online service to send money, it is at least a 30-60 minute ordeal or not being to log in with the password I know is correct, resetting the password and the new password still not allowing me to login, finally getting through to the point where you submit a transfer, and being kicked back to the login prompt. If you want to have an extremly maddening experience, by all means, use Moneygram. Moneygram should just remove their horrendous attempt at an online service. They mujst make all oftheir money from phone and in-store transfers, because they seem to do everything in their power to prevent you from actually sending money onilne.

The veterinarians and technicians at CVVC are awesome. They clearly love animals, love what they do, and provide the best care.
