Google +1 Button: Not Buzz

Google has apparently not learned its lesson when it comes to getting involved in social ventures, and is rolling out a new feature called the +1 button, which is essentially equivalent to Facebook’s “Like” button.  If you’ve got a Google profile, you can see what your friends with Google Profiles have +1ed and, unlike Facebook, …

Nerdy things that make me laugh: QI

Stephen I refute that with every fibre of my being. The actual answer is a field – Jeremy No, you can’t refute. That’s bad grammar, that, Stephen. To refute, you have to provide evidence. Stephen Yes… Jeremy You mean “rebut”. Stephen No, I mean “repudiate”. Jeremy Fair enough. Stephen Yeah. But a good point. Very …

Women and The Internet

It has long been a truism in the advertising world that men may make the money, but women control the purse strings, just watch any episode of Mad Men. All you have to do to see the truth of this is to look at those popular Old Spice Body Wash commercials, here’s a product aimed …

Two Random Images Just for You

These have nothing to do with anything, except I found them when trying to find a picture of a skeptical baby.  And that makes them even awesomer than they already were.  Which is pretty awesome.

From great ideas I had and never executed…

I bring you the Waiting for Godot video game. You may recall a couple months ago, an online video game based on The Great Gatsby went viral.  It is a strange game, and I watched someone play through the entire thing.  Because I'm more a game connoisseur than a gamer myself.  It was pretty funny, …

Children and the Supernatural

I read this really fascinating article about children and the ages at which they are prone to believing in the supernatural.  So often we think of faith as childlike, and no matter what religion or superstitions you hold to, those of other people always seems silly and naive.  Something a 4 year old might believe …

In LGBT News

I'm so late on all of this, but I'm going to talk about it anyway. 1. The stay will not be lifted on performing gay marriages in California.  It's been so long since the argument before the ninth, that one might easily have forgotten that we were a hairsbreadth away from allowing gay marriages in …

My Con Schedule 2011

  I'm going to have a busy summer! Secular Coalition for America's Summit in Washington DC from May 19-21.  I haven't been to DC since I was 13,  so this is exciting, and I've been invited as Future Leader and will get to talk strategy, which is also cool.  Still need to figure out travel plans, …

Busy!

Have you ever had one of those weeks where there was just too much going on?  That’s the sort of week I’ve been having.  It’s been good, great even, I’ve just had a lot on my plate.  I love the freelance writing I’m doing but, between working full-time and tutoring and trying to attend local …
