Mother Jones:

A Harvard business prof and a behavioral economist recently asked more than 5,000 Americans how they thought wealth is distributed in the United States. Most thought that it’s more balanced than it actually is. Asked to choose their ideal distribution of wealth, 92% picked one that was even more equitable.”

More charts…

Those circles yesterday were informative but I find this to be far more visually striking.


Part of my deal with Target is that they have to start affiliating themselves with LGBT charity groups and begin to reform and make amends for the mistakes they’ve made in the past … our relationship is hinged upon their reform in the company to support the gay community and to redeem the mistakes they’ve made supporting those [antigay] groups.

Target agrees to stop funding anti-gay groups following Lady Gaga deal – Pink News

Gaga is damn brilliant.

I find myself applauding Lady Gaga…This feels weird to me.

Will Target be stocking the giant egg?!


Stop to think about the vows. Till death do us part. In sickness and in health. I mean, think about that for a minute. Think about your work. Do you really want to be doing it until the day you die? No retiring if there actually was social security, no escaping to Boca Raton when you’re in your seventies and playing golf in the sun, no kicking back or making cookies for the grandkids. No resting. No breaks. No sick days or days off from manifesting that care that you’ve prioritized so highly. This is the real deal, ball-and-chain, for-fucking-ever. Are you really sure you want to commit?

If you answered yes, then finish that fucking project already.





Blogs Wane as the Young Drift to Sites Like Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr

We’re looking at 10-year lifecycles for media.  Portals big for 10 years, then gone. Blogs big for 10 years, already fading away.  Social networks?  Not sure they will last past 10 years, either.  They steal pieces of each other and evolve into amazing hybrids, like Tumblr.  It’s fantastically scary and incredibly exciting, because it brings people together less and less by demographics, and more and more by interest groups.

Steve, that photo makes me wonder how much of that 10 year cycle has to do with the devices we use. The predominant way that early adopters access the internet (and thus popularize sites and services) has shifted from shared desktops to single-user desktops to mobile phones.

Paging Mr. Reality…Mr. Augmented Reality. You’re on in 5…
