The SOPA/PIPA blackout today by Wikipedia, Mozilla, WordPress.com and many other sites is (I hope) drawing attention to proposed legislation that is considered a threat to "Internet freedom." That's fine, admirable, and (with any luck) will be effective at curbing SOPA/PIPA for at least another legislative season. The backgrounders I've read so far by Wikipedia and others explain pretty well why SOPA/PIPA shouldn't pass. What they don't say is th...

People often ask me about my research techniques. You would think this would be a relatively straightforward question, but the truth is that I have to keep changing my answer, because my techniques are constantly shifting as new forms of search or discovery become possible. Right now, I'm in that thrilling stage of writing-while-still-researching my next book, and I just went through a little episode of discovery that I think might be worth mappi...

"If there is one sentiment that unites the crises in Europe and America it is a powerful sense of “baby boomers behaving badly” — a powerful sense that the generation that came of age in the last 50 years, my generation, will be remembered most for the incredible bounty and freedom it received from its parents and the incredible debt burden and constraints it left on its kids." http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/17/opinion/sunday/17friedman.html

Simple idea for the Google+ team. Let me star posts to read later, like I do in Google Reader or Gmail (if stars are going the way of the dodo in favor of +1 that's fine, but we need something like this).

You can +1 it, then look at your +1'd links in the tab in your profile https://plus.google.com/113681534576549611571/plusones (replace your giant Gnumber with my giant Gnumber)

Whoa. This little tool is nice! Fits the way I use the web -- group-wise, sharing-wise, reading-wise -- far better than FB or Twitter. And as Kyle points out, the mobile app is tight. (How do I @KyleFlaherty?)

Heather photographed our wedding in Boston in January 2013. She was a pleasure to work with and we loved the photos. We put a lot of thought into our wedding, and tried to make it party that was unique to us. We were really impressed with the way Heather and her assistant captured that uniqueness in the shots they chose. Dealing w/ Heather on payment, contact, deliverables, etc was all very straight-forward. This is not always the case with wedding photographers. My two brothers-in-law curse theirs because of massive hidden payments that were required to get pictures after the fact. One last thing: Leading up to the event, Heather's organization and advice for us put us at ease.
