Took the words right out of my 1978 born self.
A reader writes: There is one big thing that has been missing from the Millennial thread. I was born in 1979 so I'm sort of right in the middle between Gen X and the Millennials. The generation of Americans a little bit older than me had their formative years conditioned by the Cold War; they were as Americans was defined in large part by opposition to the USSR. Being American meant being anti-communist. Those Americans a little bit younger than...

Investing in real estate at the micro-level? Sign me up.
Dan and Ben Miller began tugging two years ago at a simple question they believe is central to the failings of the American real estate industry. The brothers – sons of a well-known Washington, D.C. developer – had begun acquiring properties themselves in the city’s emerging neighborhoods where traditional capital seldom goes. Real estate developments are typically financed by wealthy investors who live in the suburbs, or by Wall Street funds eve...

I kept hearing +Tom Hill's voice in my head while I was reading this.
Chris Anderson can't wait: What we will do with our personal drones? That question is just as unanswerable—but just as tantalizing—as the same question about personal computers back in 1977. When the Apple II came out, the answer was not much more than "Program it!" But over time, as regular people found uses for PCs in their own lives, they came up with better answers: word processors, spreadsheets, videogames, email, and, eventually, the web. ...

Data Driven Crime Reduction!!!
Tim Stelloh reports on a police questionnaire developed in Maryland that appears to have been responsible for the state's 40% drop in domestic abuse: The first three questions concerned the most important predictors of future homicide: Has the abuser used a weapon against you? Has he threatened to kill you? Do you think he might kill you? If the woman answered yes to any of those questions, she "screened in." If she answered no, but yes to four ...

Heh: Filmmaker Michael Moore received $841,145 in tax incentives from the State of Michigan to make Capitalism: A Love Story, a documentary against corporate welfare, the New York Times reports.

"Our research on opinion poll data from earlier elections finds that lower-income Americans tend to vote based on economic issues, while richer voters consider social issues as well as economics in their voting decisions. This is sometimes called post-materialism: the idea that, as individuals or groups become more comfortable, they can afford to think beyond their immediate needs."

Completely non-partisan as always. (I'm being completely serious.)
Very slick. I make a good portion of my living narrating visual explanations (PPT) of complex concepts, and I appreciate a good presentation. The missing concept here: the trickle-down argument can make sense, in my opinion, in a more closed economic enviroment, or in a national economy less dependent on trade and less subject to international competitive pressures. In today's globalized economy, however, I think it's a distinct beggaring proposi...

I love this idea.
Fred Clark proposes giving the unemployed preference for jury duty: First, it reduces the frequency of jury duty for those with employment. They’d still be called to serve, but less often, thus reducing the total level of inconvenience and hassle due to missing days at work. And it would channel more of those tiny, inadequate stipends to unemployed people who could use even such trivial sums. His vision doesn't end there: I want to repurpose a...

Fantastic idea, yes?
Alyssa Rosenberg wants more web series adapted into cable series: I really think the networks would be smart to start using web television as a farm system. A season of web television usually adds up to about the length of a pilot. If a motivated web audience finds a show and proves willing to keep coming back for the bits and the pieces of a pilot over a period of time, that might be a good indicator that a core audience exists for a show that ...

Interesting effect in Australia.
How some countries boost turnout: Down Under, if one does not show up, even to cast a ballot for "none of the above," a fine of roughly $15 is imposed. The result has been turnout of 90 percent or more. High turnout is nice in and of itself. But Australian politicians of all stripes say that the main impact has been to turn the campaign, the issues and the discourse away from the extremes and toward the persuadable voters in the middle. After al...
