Lobbyists pushed off advisory panels →
bringmethathorizon: squashed: Hundreds, if not thousands, of lobbyists are likely to be ejected from federal advisory panels as part of a little-noticed initiative by the Obama administration to curb K Street’s influence in Washington, according to White House officials and lobbying experts. The new policy — issued with little fanfare this fall by the White House ethics counsel — may turn...

A pocketable camera for an [D]SLR nerd
superdoofus-stratodrive: marco: I used to carry my SLR[DSLR] and laptop with me in my huge backpack every day, but a few changes have resulted in almost never bringing my camera day-to-day anymore: My commute is now on the subway, which is much more crowded and much less practical for backpack-wearing. I have a great messenger bag that works much better for the subway, but it can’t...

thefuzzydave: Went to the ENT today for a followup on the CAT scan and a rundown on how we’re gonna treat the tumor in my ear canal. The good news is that the tumor is non-invasive. It has not bored its way into my skull. My beautiful brain is hunky-dory. Apparently my doctor found the tumor in a very early stage. After several weeks of ear drops, it was softened enough for her to rip it all...
The Bill Gates Wealth Index →
mikehudack: adamiss: One way to examine this sort of wealth is to compare it to yours. Consider an average American of modest wealth. Perhaps she has a net worth of $70,000. Mr. Gates’ worth is 800,000 times larger. Which means that if something costs $100,000 to her, to Bill it’s as though it costs 12 cents. You can work out the right multiplier for your own net worth. So for example, you...

Tumblrs tend to treat design as an afterthought
Nearly every Tumblr blog is a clone with an unaltered theme that looks 100% identical to thousands of other blogs. It’s really odd when you think about it, considering how many Tumblr posts are about art/fonts/design/etc. This sort of thing makes sense on platforms like Livejournal, where all designs are notably vanilla to begin with. It’s baffling to see it on Tumblr, where themes...
