Denver Restaurant Bites Back at 2-Star Review With a Special Named After the Critic
"the Denver Post's restaurant critic William Porter gave Denver's the Squeaky Bean a two star review, writing that chef Theo Adley has "work that needs to be done...so the menu "eats" as well as it reads." In its previous iteration, under chef Max Mac-Kissock, Porter had given the Squeaky Bean a full four stars. And now, in honor (?) of the demotion, you can order a William 2-Star Porterhouse steak with a glass of William 2-Star Porter beer to wash it down." - Eric - Watch Me Now from Bookmarklet
Comedy and Democracy: The Role of Humor in Social Justice - http://animatingdemocracy.org/resourc...
Comedy and Democracy: The Role of Humor in Social Justice
"Humor is a social corrective. Through many examples, Goldman illustrates how humor can validate experience, help us to think more flexibly and reframe situations, illuminate the ways in which we live in the world politically, and be used to critique social injustice. Humor can diffuse the tension around controversial topics, such as in Laura Cunningham’s play and film about fracking, “Frack You.” Goldman discusses how satire can subvert authority and expose hypocrisy, highlighting comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert who obscure the lines between news and comedy. In stand-up storytelling, D’Lo uses his sense of humor along with his body to confront society while making a safe space for people to be open and absorb information. Goldman looks at the relationship between humor and stereotypes and the impact that humor about race and ethnicity plays in society. Examples include Alex Barnett, a comedian who is broadening the scope of audiences’ thinking by his alternative... more... - Eric - Watch Me Now from Bookmarklet

YOU DON'T SAY. - Andrew C (✔)
Windows 8 might (might!) be great on a touchscreen, but that was no reason to do away with traditional mouse-based UI for everyone who has a mouse and doesn't have a touchscreen. Idiots. - Andrew C (✔)
After that, they'll introduce a new rev that's focused completely on the desktop. - Professor A.I.
Well, at least it isn't the vile bloated mess that the Start Menu was in XP and 7 that I've always loathed. - Victor Ganata
The great thing about Windows 7 is that it runs software AND you can figure out how to use it. I'd pay more for Windows 7 than Windows 8. - Professor A.I.
Windows 7 does cost more than Windows 8.1 :D Anyway, I don't really have too many problems with Windows 8.1, although the OoM error I get whenever switching out of a game running true full screen is most vexing. - Victor Ganata
I only use Windows to run old obscure software which is less likely to work on new versions. When I want a good user interface, I retreat to the Mac running the VMWare running the Windows. :) - Professor A.I.
I'm finding it harder to find a safe haven of decent UIs these days. 10.9's Finder makes me sad, and I wish I wasn't so heavily invested in using iTunes. But I do appreciate how Windows has adopted OS X's dock :D - Victor Ganata
I have never really been into the Start menu, except to copy a shortcut from it, after installing a new app. I have always preferred using my taskbar in place of it. Been doing this since Win98: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u... - April Russo

Huge for enterprise with old web sites. Now IE11 will render based on old standards like IE8.
