Joshua Kopstein:

This week, as Congressional incompetence threatens to plunge the US into another recession, it’s comforting to know that Democrats and Republicans can still agree on at least one thing: that the US government should have the unquestionable authority to spy on its own citizens — in secret, without a warrant, and absent of any semblance of transparency.

Shamefully true.

Ready for a sweeter take on the whole grilled-cheese-and-tomato-soup comfort food thing? 
Presenting Nutella Hot Chocolate + Grilled Marshmallow Sandwiches. Nom!

This looks pretty awesome.

Dave Pell:

For the past couple of years Isaac has been following his childhood friend Marvin on Facebook. And over that period, Marvin has shared a series of political links and comments that are diametrically opposed to Isaac’s core values. During the weeks leading up to the trip, Isaac was convinced that these political differences would be a thorn in the side of any experience.

But a funny thing happened when he got to Las Vegas. For the first time in years, Isaac saw his old friend Marvin in person. Within ten seconds of greeting each other, Isaac was reminded that in addition to a shared history and group of friends, he and Marvin have almost everything else in common. They talked for hours that first night in Vegas and the bonding session extended right through Sunday afternoon.

A great reminder that, as Pell puts it, “someone who only experiences the virtual you is not getting anywhere close to the full story.”

My life changed on April 9, 2010. At least, my work life did. And when you own your own business, your work life tends to bleed — heavily — into every aspect of your life. So when I received the announcement early on a Friday evening that Twitter had purchased atebits, it was a punch to the gut.

Sad story. Caring only about money only ruins relationships, people, and products.

I need to do this more often. It’s incredibly true.

Indifference toward people and the reality in which they live is the one and only cardinal sin in design.

This isn’t an album to lose yourself in. You can find yourself in this music.

Great write-up of one of my favorite albums to write to. The above pull quote could not have been more spot on.
