OK you hardcore webpage divas & start up devs, how can we get rich?

So, I think I have a job and I wanted to take a moment and thank all of you who have helped keep me afloat through 2013, which I hope will soon be the toughest year of my adult life fading in the rearview mirror. This particular job is a network support role and involves …

The American dream by region

SocialMobility

This image was going around a few weeks ago showing upward mobility by region. Notice how Yuppiehood is greatly diminished in conservative regions. Again, I’m not that partisan, it’s just that current GOP policies do not work:

For now, do you have any spare DDR3 RAM, or would you please consider hitting my tip jar above and improving my shitty circumstances.

Money doesn’t kill people, Austerity kills people

In most any civilized space-time that headline would be unassailable. Remove or reduce food, shelter, and medical care, and more people die.

Once again we see the bizarre creature that was once a consistent political partyP cleave into the beast with two heads. One head talks to the base and their propaganda organs in a language it hopes only they understand, cheering on the sequester and the downfall of Big Evil Government (When dems hold the WHtm). The other …

NASA and NewSpace to suffer under sequestration

This kind of gives you an idea of the broad reach of what will happen if, at the end of next week, Congress isn’t able to cook up another deal to punt decision-making another month or year or whatever down the road:
