Soccer Ally

I’m not a super ally or anything. I haven’t marched in a pride parade. I don’t even own a rainbow flag to wave. But as most of my friends know, I stand up for the little guy. Whoever that little guy is, and whoever that little guy loves. I have near and dear friends and… Continue reading Soccer Ally

Blackout Success? Not quite yet…

From Fight For The Future (info@fightforthefuture.org) Today was nuts, right? Google launched a petition.  Wikipedia voted to shut itself off.  Senators' websites went down just from the sheer surge of voters trying to write them.   NYC and SF geeks had protests that packed city blocks. You made history today: nothing like this has ever happened… Continue reading Blackout Success? Not quite yet…

I was looking for a good solid review of Ghost Story (cuz I'm too lazy to write my own) and came across a decent one there on io9. But it… Continue reading The Dresden Files – What the hell is it?

The Totally Equalized Soccer Show

My new favorite soccer podcast is The Total Soccer Show. I found it while bouncing around blogs talking about the Soccer vs. Football debate and off of that, the American vs. British terminology debate.

I can spend up to 3 hours doing… Continue reading Podcasts in Public: A Cautionary Tale
