Tuned in, dropped out [Nov. 5th, 2014|09:49 pm]
Andrew
So, I changed my password on Facebook to some gibberish. That means that in order to log in again, I'll need to do some gymnastics. I'm sure I'll log in again, but for now it's been too much of a distraction to be considered productive.

But that means that I no longer have a reliably vocal source of "newsy" information. I just realized that the elections happened yesterday, so I went out to find what the results were. I first went to sfgate.com and could find no succinct summary of the elections on the front page. So then I went to nytimes.com. No simple summary there either.

I finally went to en.wikipedia.org, where the summary was quick and clear, and the links to the results were obvious and informative.

It seems that wikipedia is now better at disseminating factual news report than the reliable sources upon which it rests.

*sigh*

I actually leaned pretty heavily on your posts on Facebook. But it never occurred to me to actually contact you directly.

Expect a call in about 24 months. :)

Doing web front end work for a small start up. Not very interesting, but it pays the bills. Also dorking around with open face chinese, and seeing what the big deal is with draftkings.
