I finally got around to watching this 3 minute video that clearly and concisely explains the SOPA/PIPA brouhaha: http://bit.ly/s9ebnc
Please sign this petition to stop a bill that's so crazy that it could shut down Twitter and Youtube!

The Wall Street Journal reviews Sex, Bombs and Burgers. Some criticisms, but some praise as well.

RIM's new CEO says he doesn't want to turn the company upside, which is exactly what he should do.

Hey Peter. Bang on about RIM. Their core has always been the software and security. They should expand on BES and keep the contracts rolling.

I have to admit I enjoy being a "filthy blogger." ; )

Will SOPA stop piracy? No, but it may very well start a new Cold War.

Huge ski resort with lots of area to ski. Lifts are fast and the sun was shining on the day we went, making for a great day of skiing. No crowds. The only complaint is there are lots of flat spots on the easier runs, which is tough for snowboarders to traverse.

Fast and pleasant service, combined with quarter chicken dinners. What more could you ask for?

Best comic book store in Toronto. Huge selection of books and collectibles, plus a Dark Horse cafe on site.

My wife and I go here a lot, mainly because it's the closest theatre. It's very busy and parking is often hard to find. The last film we saw there (Miss Peregrine's), I had to leave the theatre to tell a staffer that the volume was too quiet. They had forgotten to turn some speakers on, apparently. The worst part of the theatre is that there are always talkers there, but the staff don't do anything about it even when you ask them to.

Love this place. An award-winning Ukrainian-run meat store with the best prices around. I get all my meat here.

Lots of things for kids to do but the admission is pretty high at $15. Good market store and excellent fries at the food stand.
