Zut alors! French court rules against eBay in luxury goods suit This is actually quite a ridiculous ruling, in my opinion. My view would be that eBay should be treated in the same way that ISPs are. That is, they can’t be completely held accountable for the items posted on them. They should, however, be held accountable if requests are made to remove such and such an item, as ISPs are, but...

The Men of Journal Square
As I was walking to work today, I was stopped by traffic at the big intersection right before you get to the train station. Waiting patiently for the light, I notice two guys swagger up to me, all decked out in that new colorful hip hop trend every guy in this neighborhood has been up on (think: hoodies emblazoned with pictures of diamonds and dollar signs). Great. “Damnnnn girrllll, you...

So I just saw on my Google Reader the article Evolving Thoughts: The evolution of morality. I get so happy when I read things like this becoming ever more common place. It’s great and super eloquent when Richard Dawkins says it, but too many “believers” have been programmed to react negatively to anything he says just because of his shock-value, so it’s good to hear more...

READ: Hip-Hop Elitism: Why Soulja Boy is More Hip Hop Than You HA. I feel like that article just told me off, and I loved every minute of it. I would still hump Atmosphere’s leg anyday though, and still would never really like Soulja Boy outside of the 10Spot/blaring-inapproriate-hip-hop-inside-Andra’s-car scene. So I’ll leave you with two of my favorite excerpts: “If you feel like...
How 2.0: How to Make a Twittering Teddy Bear from My Home 2.0 DIY on Vimeo. I know it went from really cool to hate Twitter, to really cool to hate those who hate Twitter, and back and forth forever (heh), but really.. This is not the future of the web! You can’t take some 1990s term like “new media” and apply it to every new trend that comes out on the internet and somehow...

This has been up on YouTube for a while now, but I couldn’t resist to post here anyway. My favorite part is right around 2:30. I could take this time to be balanced and unbiased by posting some YouTube mockings of Obama (like when he claims there are 58 states and he’s visited 57 of them), but this really isn’t that kind of blog ;)

Many are shocked and outraged about the recent Pregnancy Boom at Glousester High, MA - where at least 60 girls all under the age of 16 took an oath to get pregnant and raise their children together. But it’s easy to forget it’s happened before! Yes, in 2005 an almost identical incident occured at Timken High School in Canton, Ohio, where 65 teenage girls all became pregnant in one...

“More than 4,000 children in China have been given the name Aoyun, meaning Olympic Games, in the past 15 years. It is not uncommon for Chinese children to be given names of common events and popular slogans - such as Defend China, Build the Nation and Space Travel. There are 290,798 registered Civilisations. The BBC’s Chinese service says that in recent weeks babies have also been...

Things I get really annoyed by:
People who are rude for really no reason People who Capitalize a Word just because they Think it it Important People who tell me to chill when I am far from worked up I have just encountered these things all within a span of fifteen minutes, although thankfully not wrapped into one. Geeze. I could list more but these are the present annoyances.
