Want something good to happen to you today? Well, if you go vote for this photo, you will get a huge amount of great karma from me. This is a photo contest for amateurs, and I shouldn't want to win, but I really do. I know I'm an amateur, but that makes it all the more fun. Thanks much, and I hope I can do something like this for you very soon.
Having a fling downtown, friends enjoy a game of shuffleboard.

Here's a post I wrote with Pat Armitage of +BlogMutt . I think it does a good job of showing how we can all just calm down a bit about algorithm changes, and realize that we do have great power. Also, there's a shout-out to the incomparable +Jay Rosen and to Ello.
Much like this all-powerful wizard operating behind locked doors, the algorithms of Google and Facebook control much of social media and traditional media, too, via search.

I've been wanting to follow up the book I wrote about water with an essay regarding the current situation in California, but I haven't taken the time. Now I won't because the incomparable Steven Johnson has written a remarkably spot-on analysis of both water and media. Highly recommended.
What the New York Times — and everybody else — gets wrong about California’s water crisis.

My first time being published on +Inc Magazine . Lots of fun, and hope I don't piss off too many VCs. 
There's only one source of financing that makes companies work--and it's not what you might think.

Here's a piece I wrote about Hillary's possible screw up. After the post was done someone told me that she could have been had by someone else. We may never know, but I did write a comment at the end of the post to make sure that was clear.
Hillary Clinton was a lawyer during Watergate, a high-profile first lady and a senator and secreta...

The other dark side of taking VC. You can get fired from your own company.

Went in to get a seat belt unstuck. They said the only option was to replace the whole thing for $700. They also found another $3,000 worth of repairs, all of them questionable. I checked the 'net and fixed the seat belt with a screwdriver. They then charged us $120 to come up with all these bogus repairs, and charged us $12 for materials. That's right: they didn't do any work, and still charged us for materials. We've had questionable dealings with them in the past, we only went there this time because we thought they'd fix a clear safety issue and charge VW, not us, but now when we do go to a dealer we'll be going to the other side of town because these people are not to be trusted.

They really love dogs there, and our little buddy always runs to get there, and then comes home dog tired. They understand dogs, and love them!

I had a bad case of the flu, and he did his homework to look up the latest from the health department about what medicine was actually working for my kind of flu. Treated me as an individual, and then followed up with a call later on. The best kind of local family doctor I could hope for.
