Hitch on AC360

I confess I cried watching it.  I have a somewhat irrational emotional attachment to Christopher Hitchens, he has such an eloquent and engaging approach to writing and speaking.  I don’t always agree with him politically, but I think everyone has to admire the honest way he’s approaching his own death. AC: In a moment of …

Gordon Smith

I had the unique opportunity to see a psychic called Gordon Smith.  I hadn’t heard of him until today, but I took the liberty of google searching him before seeing him and learned a bit about him.  He’s not just a psychic, he’s also a medium, which means that in addition to seeing the future …

GeekWeek Podcast

I’m on a Podcast. I haven’t listened to it.  Let me know if it’s horrifically embarrassing. This is geekweek. EDIT: If you don’t get my Charles Babbage joke, here’s who he is.

Why Facebook is Awesome

I also applaud your sturdy good sense in not swilling INCEPTION’s pretty kool-aid. Superbly executed hustle, but pretty paper thin (as, come to think of it, was Leonardo’s performance). – Eddy Von Mueller I just friended and got a message from a professor of mine from undergrad.  He was probably the snarkiest professor I had …
