Every so often, he'd pull the beanie up to show me his face. He seemed happy.

My eyes are still safe.
 
"The Eyes of the Salary Men Are Killing Me"

This man sat next to Manoj on the train to Shinjuku. He spoke passable English, and started chatting Manoj up about his taste in music. Manoj, being a man who asks tough questions, asked him: "So why are you wearing a beanie over your head?".

The man answered, "The eyes of the salary men.. they are KILLING ME". 

After a week there being a subject of some fascination, I began to see what he meant.

Look who's quoted. +Brandon Downey, Tech Leader.
Their letter to senators seeking ‘substantial’ actions marks a shift for an industry long wary of Washington.

Well, duh, who'd want the NSA searching through their email?
The NSA's system is “a little antiquated and archaic."

+Meder Kydyraliev looks good in a suit. (And this is a good track too.)

Aw c'mon, this guy (whoever he is) is a dead ringer for Meder, especially during his poofy hair phase.

I imagine some of the businesses don't know they are exploited but would like to know.
 

Open letter to Glenn Greenwald about why he (and his editors) should reveal the identity of the standards, companies, and products that have been compromised by the NSA:

Whatever... if you don't know how to get lyrics without using an album specific app, you deserve to have no friends.

I'd gathered little bits and pieces of this, but this post cleared up a lot of things for me.
 
Posting this as a bookmark for myself as much as sharing with readers who may be similarly interested.

Small correction: The nickname "Abdoh" is a thing. As the article points, out, there is a whole family of mens' names of the form "Abd el X" for XN = {names of Allah} (where, famously, | N | = 99). E.g., "Abd el Hamid" means "Servant of The Praiseworthy". Well, "Abdoh" means "His Servant" and is a generic nickname for anyone named according to that schema.

Huh. 3 faulty ATMs in a row tonight. First at a 7/11 (one of those ATMs in a can), then an Alliant Credit Union ATM at work. The 3rd ATM I tried was another Alliant ATM in a different building at work, and it was up, then went down, then came up again. I grabbed my money while I could.

Is something up with the ATM network tonight (if there even is such a thing)?

FWIW, the machines moaned that they were broken before any cards went in.

Also, worshipping money makes no sense. I worship the corporations that control the money.
