Time to circle +George Takei! If you want the joy of Takei without having to go on Facebook, we need 250k people to circle him!

I just checked and between when I posted that and now (about an hour and 45 minutes) he has been circled by 6000 more people. Not enough, folks! MORE!

Not that he's making a bad point, but can we please get someone to acknowledge that being Indian doesn't accord you special rights anyway? The reason this whole "scandal" is frustrating me is that it seems to be accepted that somehow, checking a box or getting herself put on a list changed her destiny. Real Native academics are pretty rare, but I'm sure if Elizabeth Warren got privileges just by naming herself as Native American with her blue eyes and blond hair, the darkest skinned ones would be presidents of all the Ivy-League schools.

The only privilege that comes with actually being Native as opposed to not being Native is that you can actually get elected to tribal government. That's pretty cool, just in case I ever want to be Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation (which I have no aspiration to), but ranks pretty low on the list of ways to get ahead in life without working too hard.

Can anybody explain to me why target="_blank" was deprecated in HTML4 and then undeprecated in HTML5? Not that I'm complaining! More like wondering how we won this fight.

Well, I for one am glad to see it back. I really think it's a useful feature and I really, really disagree with those people who think I want to choose whether or not each link opens in a new tab.

Author John Scalzi wrote what I consider to be a fine and important series of pieces about the difficulty of being a "Straight White Male". I wish everyone would at least read it. He also wrote a couple of followups, and I'm including a link to someone who kindly put together a handy fact sheet.

I think if you make a post "Public", then anyone should be able to comment on it. That's why it's public. If you circle me but I don't circle you and I don't want you to see my content, it won't be public. It'll be limited to my circled homies. It's kind of stupid to make something public and then set your public comments to anything besides "anyone". I don't get that. Anyway, count me out. If I can't comment on your posts, I don't want to see them.

I guess I can understand that, but if I've circled somebody and then can't comment on their public posts because they haven't circled me, I just uncircle them. I've no interest in people I can't interact with.
