Found this today... GIF Tuesday It's very clever.

Here are some of the videos we've done on the NSA + GCHQ + Edward Snowden and all of that spying they've been doing:

I just finished replacing 12 lights with LEDs. Collectively reducing my power consumption by 100 watts across my apartment. That means that I save $0.01 for every hour I have all the lights on in my apartment! Which is almost never, but in most rooms it means I cut power consumption in half.

key point: "There’s no saving an intelligence community that believes it can lie to the public and the legislators who need to be able to trust it and regulate its actions." -- Edward Snowden
 
Edward Snowden interview by ARD (video removed from youtube and vimeo so far): http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=f93_1390833151

Transcript: http://www.ndr.de/ratgeber/netzwelt/snowden277.html

"What was the decisive moment or was there a long period of time or something happening, why did you do this?" -- "I would say sort of the breaking point is seeing the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, directly lie under oath to Congress. There’s no saving an intelligence community that believes it can lie to the public and the legislators who need to be able to trust it and regulate its actions."

The Tulip festival was a lot of fun.  We visited a couple farms, then we went to Deception Pass State Park.  It was a great day for all!

Software Test Engineer | Seattle, WA | Open Source Advocate
Introduction
Hello!  I am a Software Test Engineer with a specialty in Networking technologies.  I primarily use both Windows and Linux machines for work and personal use.  You can also find me on a variaty of social networks such Blogger, Orkut, Myspace, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.  

I am a self proclaimed Googleholic, and I love to keep up to date with the newest products provided by both the Internet giant in Mountain View, CA and the software giant in Redmond, WA.  I also love to find new and interesting web and desktop applications to run.

When I'm not on the computer I play bass guitar, love to hike, and sometimes I ride my bike.  When I have longer breaks from work I like traveling to new places and improving my skills as a professional tourist!  Feel free to contact me for more information at:

Although the cupcake are a little expensive, you can tell they are made from quality ingredients, so I am not upset about the price. I love the coffee, smoothies, and Italian sodas here, and the family that runs the shop its delightful. They always have water for my dog, and there are plenty of seats with tables out front with shade from a tree and umbrellas. They also have air conditioning, which helps a lot on those hot days.

This transit center connects a number of areas that have high crime rates with the rest of the Seattle metropolitan area. Most of the time this is not a problem, but be careful at night.

I've been going to Jet City for years for the atmosphere and people that I find there. It's a unique experience where you can sit down with your coffee and enjoy a good conversation, sit and read a book, surf the web using the free WiFi, or just sit and admire all the antiques.
