We didn't start out so weird. It has something to do with the bizarre things they showed us on TV ... when we only had one kid-related show to choose from at a time.   #genx

We're doing it ... slowly, but surely. #dtla  
During the L.A. tech scene's fledgling days, entrepreneurs would joke about never going east of the 405.

We moved away from Silicon Valley to Los Angeles. Less entrenched Bro culture. Refreshing.

Start holding law enforcement accountable to the people, not just to themselves ... http://www.copscore.org/
CopScore helps to build trust between law enforcement officials and the communities they serve.

The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.   #homansquare  
A secret interrogation facility reveals aspects of war on terror in America.

+John Lilly​, we might even go as far as referring to ourselves as Germs... ;)
At any rate, we grow up handling such deliberately lengthy word monsters as 'Sauerstoffflaschenaufbewahrungstaschengriff' (handle of a storage bag for oxygen bottles), but everyone on Earth has only so much time, so the AküfiBw (Abkürzungsfimmel der Bundeswehr, "Federal Defense Force obsession with abbreviations") isn't merely a military manic matter but the entire society is thoroughly laced with it. Maybe it's something in our DNA or 🍻...

Introduction
John Lilly is a leading expert in engaging the music business with advanced campaign organizing technology. He shows recording artists, management and labels how to connect with fans using the same tools presidential campaigns use to rally voters.

As a street kid, John found community playing drums in various punk, rock and metal bands in Northern California, eventually organizing music projects and managing the legendary Bill Graham Presents office through its transformation into Live Nation Northern California.

A longtime social activist, John found his home at NationBuilder - a software startup in Los Angeles advancing the science of community organizing - and immediately began applying the world's first community operating system to the business of music.

John is now the point-person for hundreds of new music projects across the country, and the founder of MusicOrganizers.org

The comments I make here are 100% my own and could in no way reflect the views of those I work with or the customers I serve. No way.

Most of what I post here is humor, satire, rhetoric and political punditry, with an occasional rant about personal relationships or social justice. I ban trolls quickly, quietly and completely when I feel the need.

The two older women who run the deli in the morning ruin my experience for the entire store nearly every time I go into this location. I work next door, and there isn't really anything else open in the neighborhood, plus the deli food is decent and predictable. The problem is that these two women (not the younger ones, not the dudes) have zero social skills and should not be working with the public. I could make a long list of cliche anti-customer behaviors but you should probably experience it for yourself. My favorite part is when you first get there and nobody else is around, but they don't say anything for a minute or two after they've seen you. That's always a great way to start an exchange. These two are grouchy, grumpy, angry, bitchy, nasty - pick an adjective. Pretty unbelievable they still have jobs. Safeway must be union. I feel for the others who have to work with them. You'd think management would step up and impose some kind of hospitality training on people like this. Two stars because they exceed their 3 minute sandwich-making policy all the time, _providing free sandwiches_ to those who assert the policy.
