Santa!
 
This just in: Santa has opened his Village for the world to see in preparation for his annual world tour at http://google.com/santatracker

The Village tour includes: Reindeer games, free calls from Santa, & some elf surprises. One elf overhead Santa: "Ho ho ho, who wouldn't go?"

I wish!
 
I must confess, I am dreading today's elections.
Not because of who might win or lose.
Not because as a Californian, my vote for President will count 1/3 as much as an Alaskan (actually it won't matter at all -- I'm not in a swing state).
Not because my vote for Senate will count 1/50 as much as an Alaskan.

But because no matter what the outcome, our government will still be a giant bonfire of partisanship.  It is ironic since whenever I have met with our elected officials they are invariably thoughtful, well-meaning people.  And yet collectively 90% of their effort seems to be focused on how to stick it to the other party.

So my plea to the victors -- whoever they might be: please withdraw from your respective parties and govern as independents in name and in spirit.  It is probably the biggest contribution you can make to the country.

[If you agree, pass it on to your newly elected officials.]

Too funny. I just watched a video about this through MaximumPC.com and came here to post it. http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/take_tour_through_googles_closely_guarded_data_centers   You are just too fast. The irony here is my Chrome browser wasn't able to view your pics. I had to use Firefox.   :(

Go YouTube and Felix Baumgartner! 834mph! 128,100 feet! 8 million concurrent viewers!!

"...viewers from around the world went to YouTube to watch a live video stream from the capsule and mission control. By the time Mr. Baumgartner made his leap into space, the audience grew to a peak of 8 million watching at the same time, which appeared to be a record; YouTube’s previous record for concurrent viewership was around half a million, set during the Summer Olympics earlier this year."
