I didn't know anyone still made printed catalogs anymore, then this 12 pound tome showed up from Restoration Hardware. It claims to to have a significantly reduced impact on the environment, but not sending this much useless stuff through the mail would have even less impact.

You don't know how many times I have suggested someone use a CSV parsing library only to hear, "it's really easy, I'll do it myself".

If buffalo is such a great place for startups, why have so many people left it? Are they leaving because they are risk averse?

Title says it all
Recently, robust, independent and damning evidence emerged that skewers any justification that active fund management of listed assets is worth the candle. For dispassionate observers, it has been long overdue, but the source was unexpected: the UK’s

So true.  I don't invest in actively managed funds and the only account that I personally actively manage is my IRA. I'm using the Lichello AIM method for a year to check its real world performance.  In back testing its results look good.  A year is all I'm willing to commit 5-15 minutes of each M-F to manage it.  So far I'm pleased with it. The IRA gets 1/3 the input of the 401k and yet its value is at 1/2 that of the 401k, and the 401k funds have done very well. It is difficult to see its merit though in a constantly rising market.  I wish there would be 2 overall declines and recoveries to really let the method show what it can do.  At the end of the year I'll measure its performance and decide to continue using it or switch to index funds.

I've been walking along the Capital Crescent Trail looking for signs of its prior life as a rail road.  Here's a few of the more interesting things I've found.
I have walked along the Capital Crescent Trail near River Road many times but I have never noticed the bit of railroad siding that remains in one spot. See it? It is easy to miss, on the left about 5 feet above the trail an...

Not the purple line in this area (west of Bethesda). The purple line is only going to be east of Bethesda.

Just the thought of buying a truckload full of beakers is amusing to me
Forget the delivery drones and TV deals. Jeff Bezos' stealthy foray into the unsexy world of B2B distribution is likely his most disruptive move yet -- and it has an $8 trillion swath of the economy running scared.

This is a pretty cool sculpture at the National Gallery of Art on the mall.  As you walk around the house it seems to move and change perspectives. It is not the house that bends, it is only yourself.

This looks really cool, a device that has 4 cameras and lets you creat 360 degree video.
