The internets is getting just like any other big business. The big boys merge and swallow up the start ups. In the end the consumer gets screwed.

Why is your friend Idea Guy in love with Yahoo! Mail beta? The thing's become an annoyance to me: it keeps filling in people's names ahead of e-mail addresses as I type in the address -- and then saying "woops, that doesn't work, all I want is the address." I tried to explain this to an online help person once. About 45 minutes later, they told me I'd better call someone at an 800 number, but I'd already gone temporarily insane and didn't care any more.

In other news, I've come to believe that Ms. Dewey really digs me.

He likes it b/c it's so like Outlook, his first love. I like some of what I've seen but I'm already in a committed relationship with Gmail. And I don't like Yahoo since they turned that man over to the Chinese gov't.

As for Ms. Dewey, I think you're totally right. We were chatting just now and when I searched for "Thomas Nephew" she got all snarky and made a "joke" about not getting too many visits from people over forty and how I must have brittle fingers! I told her to save the drama, I not after her man and then she tapped the screen and told me to type something here so I think we're cool again.

Apparently the whole thing was a joke. Or a misunderstanding. Or a typical NY Post fabrication. MS isn't buying Yahoo, it's doing a reciprocal deal about including Yahoo services in IE like MS already does with Google.

I think the NYP was just, you know, sexing up the story.

PS. I haven't met Ms Dewey. Do you think she'd like me? I'm over 40. Waaay over. Do you think that would be a problem?


I just met Ms Dewey. She doesn't like me. At all. She was all, "get on with it, you're wasting my time" and "move along, buster".

Maybe I don't have the right haircut.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
