I just looked at the nearly final returns, and compared with the predictions in http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/ that were updated as of this morning.

It looks to me like Nate Silver correctly predicted every single state.  Including Florida.  In the morning I'll check how closely he nailed the popular vote.  Right now Romney is ahead by a hair, but most of California is not in yet, which will clearly change that.

From an alternate universe, http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_21930284/seven-people-predicting-romney-victory-tomorrow?source=most_viewed can give a lesson in how NOT to interpret polls.

Good on +Jenna Wortham for exposing the insular inanity of an ad agency's homeless hotspots at SXSW. Jobs? Yes. Jobs as fixtures -- digital footrests -- for rich cyberistas? Offensive.

“What will make a difference is for ordinary people to pick up the phone and send an e-mail or a letter to their representatives about this. When you consider the magnitude of how many people use Wikipedia globally, there is a potential here for really creating some noise and getting some attention in the U.S.” -- Jimmy Wales on Wikipedia's decision to go dark on Wednesday.
