Long read, but very interesting look at SEC college football.  
How some college football players are bought, in the words of a man who delivers the money.

Yeah - "surprise" was definitely not one of the emotions I had while reading this article.  I suppose that says it all.

Interesting.  Not sure I like it - hopefully it's not just another place to show ads as with the Facebook redesign.  

But +Twitter could make the profile page much more useful.  I would like to see them incorporate the ability to easily search your own past Tweets by topic.  Also, they should copy (and improve) Facebook's "timeline" links so you can easily jump to a certain date/time to see your past tweets.  It's way too cumbersome to scroll endlessly through your tweets.
 
Twitter has begun rolling out a new redesign of user profiles that looks quite similar to Facebook's user profiles: http://on.mash.to/1iptiOI

I cannot +1 this enough. "So there’s the entire problem, expressed in four simple ideas: the internet is a utility, there is zero meaningful competition to provide that utility to Americans, all internet providers should be treated equally, and the FCC is doing a miserably ineffective job. The United States should lead the world in broadband deployment and speeds: we should have the lowest prices, the best service, and the most competition. We should have the freest speech and the loudest voices, the best debate and the soundest policy. We are home to the most innovative technology companies in the world, and we should have the broadband networks to match."  

Ignore the expletive in the title - it's a very well written, serious argument.  Well done +Nilay Patel and h/t to Azmath Wazeer for sending my way.

I really enjoyed this episode with Louis CK.  His story at the end along with the animation was hilarious.   #seinfeld   #comediansincarsgettingcoffee
