You are the one to review Stealing Time magazine, to write about it on your blog or web site or Tumblr or Pinterest page, and make this magazine happen,...

I opened the Oregonian on Sunday and thought to myself, 'oh no. they merged the O section.' but it's worse than that -- they've downsized the "soft" content considerably -- Peter Bhatia calls it "consumer focused" (vs. the anti-consumer bent of the rest of the paper? umm... wait...). the worst is the merger of foodday and living on tuesdays. comics and movie reviews do not mix with food sections! I hate it. you?

so I'd love to hear your advice on consulting rates. I'm considering a few such gigs post-Blogher and would appreciate any thoughts. It would be product development / user experience analysis and social media marketing related. I want a number that says "I'm professional and smart but you won't feel nauseous after getting the bill." Thoughts?

I don,t like to tell this publicly,(It,s between Jesus and myself(,However you seem to have a spacial place in your heart for those who are less fortunate,
I try to get to the Jubelee center for the homeless,twice a month and offer my services as a hairstylist.It uplifts me probably more than 
The folk,s that I am serving!
Theres an expression that I,m sure youve heard,"There go I but for the Grace of god".
 Between the local population and the local police,these people have nowhere to go! 
I don,t have extra money to give,but I do have my gift,and it is my pleasure to share it with folks who are in need.
 You intrigue me I don,t know anything about politic,s and I refuse to watch the "New,s".
however I,m looking at some of your post,s and you seem to be a sweetheart.
Forgive me for bieng so bold!
Dom

here are the two shows i've decided i'll adopt this year: 'revenge' (just for the wickedness & the hedge funds) and 'prime suspect.' that second? it's absolutely everything i could want in a tv show. brilliant. maria bello's character is tough and vulnerable and i adored her immediately.

I completely agree about Prime Suspect. We saw it last night and I thought, "Finally! A network TV show I'd like to see again."

what do I wake up thinking about now that I can't think about AOL and the desires of the welcome screen staff any more? old thought processes die hard
