This is a joke, right?
After losing a sex-discrimination lawsuit in Silicon Valley last week, Ellen Pao continues on her crusade to bring gender equality to the tech world, but this time with a focus on her home turf.

Agreed but milk is a bad example since farm subsidies and governmental price regulations are involved. :-)

I've shied away from commenting on the Indiana situation, but I feel like this is a useful viewpoint.
Both conservatives and liberals aren’t being straight about the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Just out of curiosity, what would a good experience with the 'keychain' in OSX look like?  As near as I can tell it's only purpose is pissing me off.

Something fairly ironic about this.  Blog posts cute (though maybe a bit over the top) video about not judging other parents for their methods.  Comment section is overrun with breast feeding activist crying about the evils of formula (including blaming them for 'millions' of deaths in the third world).

Woh.  This is potentially big.  I haven't been a big fan of Eric Holder over all, but this would be a huge step forward.

Update: It seems like it's not as big a deal as I thought.  He's actually leaving something like 80-90% of the actual forfeiture in place and closing down just one particular avenue. 
Holder’s action represents the most sweeping check on police power to confiscate personal property since the seizures began three decades ago.

I know we're all supposed to be overjoyed that the FCC 'saved' the internet, but this article has some good arguments for why the reality is not so clear.  There are a lot of reasons to fear giving the FCC more control over the internet.  At very least I think it's fair to say classifying internet providers under title II is an experiment that could potentially go very wrong.
Did we really just enact 300 pages of legally questionable, enormously costly, transformative rules just to help Netflix in a trivial commercial spat?

Tonight I looked across the scene of disarray that is our living room, where my youngest child was climbing on the remains of a pillow fort that used to be our couch and my oldest was standing on a stool eating grated cheese directly off the counter.  I watched my two dogs brazenly steal food off the discarded dinners plates of the two afore mentioned children.  I turned to my wife and admitted 'We don't exactly run a tight ship here'.

Both boys were up a bit last night so I didn't get a ton of sleep.  Compounding that is the fact that the heat is on at the office today and my seat is directly under the vent.  It's a bit like sitting under a hair dryer.   The combination of the lack of sleep and the warm air is making it REALLY hard to stay focused today.  I can only hope if I do fall asleep I don't snore too loud.

I meant to share this earlier, but I always forget.  Flying home from San Diego, our plane got delayed so we spent quite a bit of time waiting at the gate.  Oliver was playing on his tablet while I was trying to keep Elliot occupied and Theresa was off getting us food.  There was a middle aged woman sitting next to us.  Without warning Oliver, put his tablet down and said 'I'm going to get a kiss from this man' (he sometimes says the wrong gender) then stood up on his seat and kissed the stranger next to him on the cheek before I could stop him.

I have no idea what possessed him to do it.  He hadn't interacted with this woman in any way before deciding to kiss her.  I apologized.  I wasn't exactly sure what to tell Oliver other than he shouldn't kiss people without asking them first.  I couldn't really be upset, the woman wasn't really upset, just kind of surprised and it was pretty darn cute.  Definitely a story I'll still be telling 20 years from now.

I think the funniest part was that he gave me warning but I still couldn't stop him in time. It took just long enough for me to comprehend what he was actually planning he'd already done it by the time I could act.
