Great photo! (Of course, it helps to start with a great subject! <grin>).

Too cute, and a great lesson on design.
Wall-E. Woody. Any of the Incredibles. Most of us would call Pixar’s chracters “iconic,” but how do they fare as what’s essentially a bunch of icons? As it turns out, they fare remarkably well.

Although not really a "survival guide" to SXSW, certainly a good first-timer's guide, and what's more, an impressive use of Pinterest.

Dragon Dictation is amazing and free. I've composed many emails and text messages using that app. And if you're into counting calories, LoseIt is the best hands-down.

I knew JC Penny was sneaking up on being cool, but this is the best idea for QR codes I've seen since last year's Target toy catalog.

I wanted to look up my favorite commercial this year - some guys walk into a bar they don't know, try to fit in by. Slowly earn cred by one guy being dressed the right way, one guy orders a Modelo and the third guy has an encyclopedic knowledge of garage rock and plays the right jam on the juke. Anybody know it?

Funny - my marketing/creative/tech friends have become real friends. It's a blurred line these days. :)

Best SX Survival guide I've read so far, this one focuses on how to take it seriously. I'd love to meet this young pro - she sounds like she's going places.

I get so exhausted by this "global warming isn't real" argument from people. Especially those who read only the types of blogs that reinforce their worldview.

I basically just called half of my Facebook friends "fair weather fans" for the number of posts I saw last night cheering on the Texans by people who never post about football. How long before I get a defensive comment justifying themselves? T-minus...

The umpteenth reason why I'm going to frequent more local farmer's markets. #SLGT
Alex Schleber originally shared:
 
I've been saying for a long time that grocery stores are ripping off patrons with artificially high prices since the onset of the 2008 crisis/recession:

Up to the collapse in the markets, they could argue for higher prices with sky-rocketing commodity prices for corn, wheat, and everything touched by corn and wheat/grains (i.e. just about everything - feed for meats, dairy, beer, and high-fructose corn syrup in everything else). Which was itself caused largely by the oil price near $150/barrel, and the horrific idea to produce fuel inefficiently from corn, in essence a corporate gimmy by the Bush administration for their friends at Archer-Daniels Midland and the larger agro lobby.

But when those commodity prices collapsed (oil went back down to $40/barrel), did they go back on those prices to more normal levels again? No. The grocers (and major food brands, think Kraft, General Mills, etc.) saw it as one of the last ways to extract money from the now crisis-shell-shocked consumer who was retrenching rapidly in their spending habits. But, as they say, people have got to eat...

Since then, things have only gotten worse, as re-portioning tricks (selling you a smaller amount in the same size container for the same price, etc.) as well as further price hikes have kept food inflation at around 8-9%! (See here: https://plus.google.com/112964117318166648677/posts/RUB57kbFkVD .)

But now it appears that grocers may have overstretched the bow so to speak:

Consumers are opting to eat out more, because it can actually end up being cheaper than cooking at home. Why? Because the restaurant and other food retail industries (think Applebee's, Chipotle, McDonald's) are able to bargain much more effectively in the market with their own suppliers, and everything has to be kept much closer to real, commodities-pricing-based market prices.

Your local grocer and the food brands industry: Another example of corporations (and the people they are composed of) acting as predators on their fellow (wo)man... thanks for nothing.

But don't restaurants "reportion" as well? They adapt to costs by putting less food in the food. Reference the chicken nugget.
