I grappled with what to have for breakfast this morning, until I saw that last remaining magnum in my freezer. And now..

Susan Crawford on why US Internet Access is slow, costly and unfair

This 25 minute video is a good watch if, like me, you've always wanted to know why companies like Verizon, Comcast and Cablevision overcharge their customers for internet access. Since it was invented here in the US, I am not surprised, but at the same time, something this important a part of our lives, from needing it(most times solely) to search for jobs to needing it in emergencies, should not only be affordable, but more accessible as well.

' Susan Crawford, former special assistant to President Obama for science, technology and innovation, and author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age, joins Bill to discuss how our government has allowed a few powerful media conglomerates to put profit ahead of the public interest — rigging the rules, raising prices, and stifling competition. As a result, Crawford says, all of us are at the mercy of the biggest business monopoly since Standard Oil in the first Gilded Age a hundred years ago.

“The rich are getting gouged, the poor are very often left out, and this means that we’re creating, yet again, two Americas, and deepening inequality through this communications inequality,” Crawford tells Bill. '

Doodle: Franz Kafka

Hoy celebramos el 130 aniversario del nacimiento de Franz Kafka, escritor austrohúngaro célebre por sus relatos surrealistas. 

En el doodle vemos una escena de La Metamorfosis, la novela corta más reconocida de Kafka, en la que el protagonista, Gregorio Samsa, amanece un día convertido en un enorme insecto, retratando la incomprensión que sufre por parte del mundo que lo rodea. La manzana que vemos sobre la letra L, representa la sabiduría que Gregorio debe alcanzar para sobrellevar su condición. 

La obra surrealista de Kafka ha trascendido la literatura, convirtiéndose en un adjetivo: "kafkiano", el cual hace alusión a un hecho por demás inusitado.

Pride Easter Egg

Discovered a fascinating little Easter Egg while I was working on a spreadsheet in Docs. It turns out that you can fancy up your spreadsheets with pride colors! I've decided to use the spreadsheet I used to plan my trip to Europe to show you how it works. You can fancy up your spreadsheets one of two ways:

1) Type the letters P-R-I-D-E in each column on the top row, then press TAB. 

2) At the end of the URL for the spreadsheet, type in &pride=true, then reload the spreadsheet.

As a spreadsheet junkie this made my day. Go ahead and try it!!
