needs moar coverage.

do not allow this, folks! You know that "no taxation without representation" thing? This actually is taxation without representation. We are not represented by the online retailers who are forced to pass this tax onto us.

that line I said basically should mean it's unconstitutional, but the sad part is that it'll take years for that to be declared (during which sales will drop like a fucking rock). adding 7-10% on to online purchases is a lot, and it doesn't get recorded in paid taxes by the state either.

Having people listen to your music doesn't seem a sustainable way to make money.  having people come to performances, directly support you, or buy merchandise, all seem to work just fine.

Story
Introduction
I fit into a lot of different groups and interests:

  • technology
  • cooking and #foodporn
  • keeping ahead of tech trends
  • enterprise technology
  • politics
  • music
  • internet
  • complex computer stuff
  • challenging ideals
  • challenging misinformation

Pretty much all of this is me. I follow sites such as techdirt, slashdot, groklaw, fark, the verge - these are sites closest to the information I follow.  I highlight what I see from here, as well as various other entertainment stuff.

I'm big on Lessig's rootstriking, and the concept of using logic behind the decisions you make and things you support. I like the information diet's concept of being careful of where you get your sources of information. I enjoy a good debate.

If I haven't added you yet, it's because I probably am restricted from adding too many circles of people en masse. Comment here and I'll add ya.

What do I not want? People promoting businesses that make their own personal pages and then promote off both page + profile. Sorry folks, that will only get you reported for spam in my book.
