What we're seeing here is that Republicans don't have a strong grasp of the raga.

OK, so I just shared some honest spam on here (shouted out a client's announcement while disclosing the nature of the relationship). I decided not to publicly publish, instead opting for industry people and close friends, figuring them to be more understanding or forgiving, respectively. After selecting the appropriate circles (using the Chrome +1 plugin), I was about to hit share when I caught the checkbox (checked by default) to email 9 people not on G+ with the message.

OK, caught in time, but UGH.

I'm well past the point of using Google because it's awesome. I use it because it's ubiquitous (not saying that's a good reason...actually I AM saying that it's not a good reason).

I remember Eric Schmidt saying in an interview that if Google ever violated its users' trust, they would simply stop using its services, and it would stop making money. I thought he was right on. Don't anymore (not just because this).

I've been following with fascination the Data Wars, the race to know you best that consumer technology's biggest players are up to. From what I've read and absorbed, Facebook, Google, and Amazon lead the pack; Twitter and foursquare might make up a second tier of smaller operations with respectable data sets. Microsoft and Apple have jumped in with moderate success by leveraging their size to gain a foothold, but neither has really intimidated the peloton yet.

It never occurred to me that I might find a truly fearsome data warrior outside the tech sector...until today. #AMEX has a large group of loyal customers and reams upon reams of transaction histories.

Another revelation from the same interview: AMEX is like the HBO of the personal credit industry, making the bulk of its revenue from subscription fees (from both cardholders and vendors) incentivizing quality customer service and retention, while competitors rely on late fees and interest on customer debt, incentiziving shadiness and sucker punches.

Tony Bourdain shares some oxtail with Michael K. Williams (Omar Little on The Wire) in Crown Heights, run into Jamie Hector (Marlo Stanfield) at the same restaurant.  All these Wire hoppers are New Yorkers.
