Only a case study, but interesting how the tides are turning.
 
Some interesting statistics in this post
I was hoping Chris Pruett would post a version of his talk, “Fact and Fiction: Lessons From Wind-Up Knight and Rise Of The Blobs” but he has not done so yet. The talk is available on the GDC Vault so if you attended GDC you can watch it there. It's only 23 minutes.

Homeopathy worked! On someone. Maybe. Just kidding. It didn't.

They are scam artists. That is all you need to know. I don't even think that they know it.

Look at the awful anti-science propaganda DIRECTED TOWARDS CHILDREN at Portland Sunday Parkways. An apple-fish? A turnip-marlin? This is such a gross misunderstanding of genetics, and such a vomit inducing misrepresentation of the facts that I think it is time real scientist become MORE VOCAL. Directing this disgusting, uneducated propaganda towards our most important, and most vulnerable - CHILDREN - is vile.
You don't tell an engineer how to do his job. You don't tell a mechanic how to build cars. You don't teach calculus to others. You don't build rocket ships. You don't do any of these things unless you have had YEARS AND YEARS of education. So what makes you think you are suddenly an expert in one of the most difficult and rewarding fields in the world? You trust blogs. You trust word of mouth. You trust gossip. You trust rumors. But when it comes to empirical evidence you scream SCIENCE IS BAD. And then you become a hypocrite and use SCIENCE PAPERS that you MISREAD because you have ZERO YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN SCIENCE to say that SCIENCE IS BAD? WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM. You want to make a difference? You care and want to understand? Become a scientist. Make findings through careful experimentation and GET YOUR HANDS OFF OUR KIDS.
If you're so scared of an apple with a 'fish gene' in it, make sure you never eat fish and an apple at the same time, hypocrite.

That's sad and disappointing. What's frightening to me is that we have people like this on science committees in our government.

I went here. Had an excellent porter. A flight of bacon (w/ sour cream, maple syrup and a chocolate porter sauce). Followed with a sweet and savory Hot Scotchy (a mixture of their leftover brewing worst, some scotch, and whipped cream, only available on days they are brewing). Then drowned in their refreshing Hippity Hop Ale. Let's just say it was awesome.

This dude parked behind Megan so she couldn't get out, threw a big bag full of garbage into the middle of the parking lot, and then flicked us off when we gave him the "What the heck" look.

That's amazing! Sometimes I am really impressed when people are mean and inconsiderate. How interesting!

Barnes and Noble- I will never shop there again.
reviewed:
Barnes & Noble Booksellers Downtown
Midwest Plaza-United Properties Llc, 801 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55402
Last night I decided to search for a book at this store, so I started on the website, found the book for $37.06 with the options "Add to Bag" or "Pick up in store". I selected pick up in store at the Downtown Minneapolis MN location, entered in my information, signed up for a text message notification when it was on hold, and went to bed. This morning I had not heard anything, nor received an e-mail, so I decided to call the store. The clerk on the phone seemed a little upset that I called to see if my future purchase was on hold since they already had sent me an e-mail, but assured me it was there under my name. I had received neither text nor e-mail yet, but I blew the rudeness off since they had my book on hold. Today is my day off work, so my significant other and I decided to bus to downtown Minneapolis, a 45 minute commute, for the sole purpose of picking up this book. When we arrived at the store, we were directed to the register where the cashier found the book and told us that it would be $59.99 plus tax. I said there must be some mistake because when I clicked on "Pick up in store" the price was $37.06, a whole $22.93 different. She refused to match the online price from your own website, even after I explained that the whole reason we commuted to the store was to pick up the book, and if the price difference was apparent on the website, which it was not, I would have just ordered it online in the first place. She summoned the manager for us, and the manager flat out told us that she would not honor the price, said she understood why we were upset, agreed that the website was deceiving when I showed it to her on my smartphone and showed her what a customer sees, and then we were turned out of the store empty handed. I was so upset that I was shaky on my 45 minute bus-ride back home. This is the worst and most deceiving retail experience I have ever had.

I purchased the book on Amazon for even less, with zero hassle, and I suggest you do the same. No wonder why these brick and mortar stores are dropping like flies.

Wait staff is usually pleasant. The food can be excellent depending on what you get! Burritos - a must have. Their tacos - not that authentic, but great if you're scared of spice. Good happy hour, with cheap drinks, including a rotating margarita!

Great coffee and service. Huge tables for private or group study/meetings/gatherings. I've heard the dessert is great too, but I have not had the pleasure. The bathroom looks a little bit like a haunted house, but hell, it's October!

Bamboo workshop slash coffee house? And the coffee even tells me whether or not it is better in a french press versus a drip? Coava was a happy accident for me. I needed coffee, it was close by, and I bought some to bring home. Their product was so dang good that I've been coming back too frequently and suggesting to it to visiting guest curious in exploring the Portland coffee scene. Decor here is great - wood, warehouse and sleek. Great place to converse or study. Even meet a few people! See you at Coava.

Holy moly. Whole crabs. Coconut curry Brazilian fish stew. Crab po-boys. Fish tacos. I don't know what else to say because I feel like I should just leave and eat here right now! If you're out on the coast, this is definitely a main attractions. Go surfing. Go hiking. Go to Local Ocean Seafoods. Staff was very friendly, and I feel like I was with very difficult guests. Spectacular experience.

The chain itself is great! If you have a family, I would recommend this location, but if you don't like hundreds of screaming children running around banging on doors - shy away during the school year. Otherwise fast service, excellent burgers.

Disclaimer: I can only speak for happy hour and the one non-happy hour item I have had there. These are some of the most Americanized, but almost Mexican tacos I have ever had. This is not a good thing. While it is *almost* baja style, it more comes off as cheap imitation. Their carnitas is more like a watery pulled pork, and the al pastor tacos are some of the tamest on the flavor totem-pole. On the other hand, beer is only 3 dollars, and they have great margaritas... I will be back. But mostly because the great taco joints in Portland are too far from work. Staff has been rude and nice, but they are a new as of a few months ago so I will wait for that to pan out.

Spicy popcorn, pickled eggs, smoked mussels and perfectly mixed cocktails? Best happy hour in town! Try enjoying a cocktail here and then going to your next destination... you will be disappointed... and then go back to Clyde Commons! Wait staff rocks, excellent location.
