Randomly, even though I'm ambidextrous, I draw with my left hand and math with my right, always have. I often can't even control where the pencil goes - as in, I'll look down and discover that it's migrated from hand to hand. Makes doing plane geometry hilarious, when you're drawing figures and writing numbers at the same time; the pencil sort of leaps from hand to hand of its own volition.

Dear Google: what the hell is the point of Plus without circles?

Skimming over a technical post about a Society that I live beside (and like a hopefully good neighbour, I know a lot of the people inside it pretty well) and wondering whether the OP was an OP... ;)

"Because I’m part of the new generation, I didn’t get to grow up with the MPC. But the way they grew up with MPCs, I grew up with #Ableton ." 

What the hell?

I grew up making beats by hitting a drummer, as is right and good. I don't even know what an MPC is, but I'm pretty sure it's newfangled.

And I wore an onion on my belt.

Went out to a concert last night. Beat Market (http://www.beatmarket.mu) was amazing (live-band electronica with silly outfits, big hair, and projections), and Nostep (http://www.nostep.ca) - well, I've rarely seen any kind of musician with more energy on stage, and I come from a punk/metal background. We were worried that Nostep would break his neck. Really did a great job of destroying the "one guy with a laptop" appearance of electronica. Worth checking out both of them!

Somebody please send Google+ a book on UI design. If the modal dialogue has only one option (OK, or Got It in Google's case) it really shouldn't be shown EVERY DAMN TIME. Yes I know how sharing works. I've been at this a while. So please, politely, piss up a rope.

Google's new "we send spam directly to your inbox, bypassing our own spam filters" feature. Isn't that great? Boy I wish I could get more spam from Google.

Hey awesome! Intrusive advertisements in my Gmail inbox! You just know that I'm going to buy something that is targeted invasively with no means to remove it!

Dear Google: here's a crazy idea. Give me an option to pay $5 for my email and NOT get your offensive goddamn ads. And the Google Apps route does not seem to guarantee freedom from your intrusions. Pogue mahone.
