... wait, what?
 
If the above (and below) images look a little bizarre, well, they should. They’re from long-ago German editions of My Enemy, My Ally and The Romulan Way into which the publisher inserted soup ads. Yes, really. The story came up again briefly in a series…
About the kinds of things that publishers can do to your novel after you turn it in, if you're not careful. In this case, soup ads are involved.

It's particularly evil to use the H-1B visa program (which is supposed to fill job vacancies with no qualified American applicants) to replace existing American employees with cheap foreign labor.
IT workers at Southern California Edison are being laid off and replaced by workers from India. Some employees are training their H-1B visa holding replacements, and many have already lost their jobs.

The inaugural PAX South was this past weekend. Jennifer and I had talked in the past about going to a PAX, though nothing ever came of it. This time, though, it made sense for us to go as San Antonio was only a couple of hundred miles away. We decided to…

My wife's aunt linked this to me on Facebook, saying I "might" like it. Wrong. I LOVE it and my son MUST have one.

While I'm impressed by how both Kung Lao and Kitana look, I can't help but wish that they had announced a brand new character.

Wow. Not only are these guys gigantic assholes for how they tried to screw the pizza delivery driver, they're clueless morons who actually thought other people would agree with what they did.
A Massachusetts car dealership was caught on film dicking over a pizza delivery guy in one of the shittiest ways possible. We might all have to re-calibrate our sense of what constitutes a dick move after this one.

I just saw this posted on Freenode's OpenVPN channel, and have to admit to amusement.
Activists from the Pirate Party's youth wing have wiretapped high-level political surveillance hawks at Sweden's top security conference. They set up an open wi-fi access point at the conference and labeled it “Open Guest”, and then just logged the traffic of about a hundred high-ranking ...
