If you're having trouble with Little Pork Chop this evening.

45 short years ago today

Like everyone who was alive in the summer of 1969 I remember where I was when Neil and Buzz got out of the LEM and walked on the surface of the moon. I was 14 years old, on a trip with my summer camp to the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI.

It was an amazing experience, in so many ways. I saw Muddy Waters, BB King, and Johnny Cash, and so many more (my memory is pretty weak) and then on the evening of the 20th someone put a small black and white TV on top of a VW microbus, and everyone left the show and gathered around, to watch, and even though we couldn't see much, we felt a part of something amazingly great.

1969 was a pretty amazing year. The moon landing, Woodstock, the Miracle Mets. At 14 I didn't fully appreciate that life wasn't always like this. :-)

Three posts I just wrote on Facebook

1. Rex should read this post Mike wrote about cycling in Kansas.

2. Scoble is missing his calling.

3. The Facebook editor is dangerous to ideas!

Including them here gets them into my RSS feed, much on-topic.

Why doesn't Google have a Share This Search button on their search engine? Didn't anyone ever think of it?

They're all scum, not just Comcast

I'm the last person to defend Comcast, but I just want to say that the behavior that Ryan Block documented in his taped conversation with them is industry standard.

AOL and MSN both did it to me ten years ago when I wanted to cancel my accounts. I hadn't used either account in years. But I dreaded interacting with them so much that they got a bunch of extra money from me. It's part of their business model.

  • I had actually never used the MSN account. It was set up automatically for me when I bought a laptop at Best Buy. I only discovered it when I was cleaning up my credit card statement and wondered what the mysterious charge was.

It's great that people are tuning into this now. Let's clean this cesspool of shitty customer service up. Get the FTC involved. (BTW, to all the libertarians out there, this is what you get from a "free" market.)

Why are Muslim soldiers called militants by the western press, and not western soldiers? What does the AP stylebook say about this?
