If you think that money affects US politics too much, TODAY is the day to give a few dollars to the MAYDAY effort. They have a clever plan to get rid of PACs and they just need a little money from a lot of people. Just like Kickstarter, if they don't met their goal, they don't use the money. It's very low risk. Can you spare a few dollars to cement our independence from money in politics? #PledgeIndependence #MaydayPAC

Help us reduce the influence of money in politics and pledge today!

Totally non-partisan. Both parties are equally bad on this one...

Opposed to SuperPACs in the US? There may be a solution and it's citizen funded...
Government has failed us. More than 90% of Americans link that failure to the influence of money in politics. Yet the politicians do not talk about this influence. While our democracy decays, they spend endless time with their funders. These funders hold our democracy hostage.

My brother-in-law makes the most "life-changing" ribs in America according to a recent Esquire Poll. Congratulations, Ron! And to the whole Home Team Crew! #hometeambbq   #ribs

For those who have not heard the great architecture and design podcast 99% invisible- check it out! If you have and love it like I do, you can support the 3rd season through a kickstarter campaign through this Friday. I highly recommend it and they have some cool swag too.
An award winning radio show about design, architecture and the 99% Invisible activity that shapes our world.

Any Americans interested in seeing Thorium reactors at least considered by the US Government? Also, sign up at http://thoriumpetition.com/ so we can keep petitioning until we reach 25,000 signatures!

I don't always post, but when I do it's about geeky stuff. Case in point, this awesome visualization of Citi bike usage in manhattan over 48h.

For those of us who are US citizens, I'd just like to say that no matter who you vote for tomorrow or what you believe in, we should not lose sight of the fact that we are all Americans working to make a better country and a better world.
