On the train, on seeing my 1st gen iphone a 10 yr old says, "dude, you got to get you some 3g." My comeback, "Isn't it past your bedtime?"

Official Google Blog: Our position on California's No on 8 campaign
"While we respect the strongly-held beliefs that people have on both sides of this argument, we see this fundamentally as an issue of equality. We hope that California voters will vote no on Proposition 8 -- we should not eliminate anyone's fundamental rights, whatever their sexuality, to marry the person they love." -- Cheers to Sergey and Google for speaking out on this issue. This is an example of what makes Google such a unique and wonderful company. - Christopher Sacca from Bookmarklet
By the way, my buddy Blake built this fun site where you can make a button expressing your view on Prop 8 by displaying how many years you have been in a committed relationship (any relationship): - Christopher Sacca

google still has the coolest founders. Re: Android launch: "Sergey wrote an app that lets you throw phone up in the air, measure how many seconds until you catch it or it hits the floor."
That is awesome. - Bret Taylor
Totally awesome. - David Sifry from twhirl
BTW, won't that also tell you how high you threw the phone, assuming you're throwing it straight up... - David Sifry from twhirl
but when it hits the floor and shatters, how will you get the data?! better call in Geek Squad. - MG Siegler
@Chris, I think accelerometers measure acceleration, and there's no change in acceleration at the top of the throw. (Then again, I made it to class exactly once during three quarters of physics in college.) - Jim Norris
A must app. Even though that it is crazy…funny *smile*. - ivanandersson
Of course there is acceleration during the throw... constant acceleration. - Mario Romero
That is so cool. Someone write this for the iPhone, please. Though whether I would actually throw my iPhone in the air is another question entirely. - Roberto Bonini
I once left my phone on my car's roof. I wonder if this app could be hacked to prevent that (or at least prevent me from driving off) :-) - John Mueller
Great app... should incrementally increase phone sales as people smash their phones and have to replace them. - Jason Carreira
Jason: I think that is the point: I'm beting I can throw my iPhone higher than you can throw your G1. - Roberto Bonini
I love it - brilliant and insane! - timepilot

Boy do i hate Fireworks right now. If I tinker with text styling in a box for 25 minutes and hit cmd-Z I want to undo the last tweak, not irrevocably lose all my changes!!!1!(2/2)!! Also, there's no 'redo' in this case.
for all of its inequities, fireworks is still an amazing app. i don't know what i would have done if adobe had decided to discontinue it. - daniel silveira
agreed. However I would like it so much more if it didn't have this problem, and if the layers palette supported my mouse's scroll wheel. - Kevin Fox

"Mt. Etna Volcano erupting on the island of Sicily taken from Space Shuttle Endeavour" (900×580) [jchip8, Pixdaus]
wow, amazing picture. thanks for sharing. - Mark Douglass
Mark: I haven't looked for space shuttle pictures on-line yet. I bet there are some really cool ones! - Mitchell Tsai
The crewmembers of the Space Shuttle Endeavour used a 35mm still camera to record this image of Mt. Etna Volcano erupting on the island of Sicily on December 14th, 2002. The oblique, south-looking view shows Mt. Etna's dark ash plume rising above the general altitude of storm clouds over the Mediterranean Sea at sunset. (Image Science and Analysis Laboratory, NASA-Johnson Space Center) - Mitchell Tsai
For this picture and 14 others see "Recent Volcanic Activity" [Boston - 7/16/08] Thanks Mark Douglass for finding this page - Mitchell Tsai

I thought that line was weird, too. But it's clear there aren't enough female geeks to go around -- most male geeks must accept being with someone quite a bit less geeky than they are, assuming they find someone at all. - ⓞnor

I still don't understand LOLcats! Will searching for "can has" help me understand?! - Ana
I like that there's a two week delay between the meme and the naming of the meme: - Kevin Fox
There was a little drop there, just to give some of us hope that this might go away soon. No such luck. - Cyrus Lendvay
yes, there is certainly wrong with 'can has' and the internet !! - Peter Dawson

I know this is a week old, but just read it now. Incredibly insightful and interesting. - Bret Taylor
related to this, would it be possible for Friendfeed to copy my "likes" across the system?, I liked it when somebody else posted the same link a week ago, could my like also show up in your feed when you post that link? Then maybe separate the likes from those who liked your link directly vs. those who liked it elsewhere? Might be helpful in determining overall like-ability of a link - Adam Kazwell
Long one.. I wish there was a "Read Later" button on FF (and a corresponding "Later" tab). Hmm.. let's see how long it takes tonight to Greasemonkey what will be a very ugly hack. - Aviv
Instapaper is helpful for the "read later" option - Adam Kazwell
Aviv, that's what linkmarks (bookmarks) do! Just right-click in any browser, or better yet, use the Firefox add-on. - John Lam

The Audacity of Data - The New Republic -
"Like Bill Clinton in 1992, Obama's campaign boasts a cadre of credentialed achievers. Intellectually, however, the Obamanauts couldn't be more different. Clinton delighted in surrounding himself with big-think public intellectuals--like economics commentator Robert Reich and political philosopher Bill Galston. You'd be hard-pressed to find a political philosopher in Obama's inner wonk-dom. His is dominated by a group of first-rate economists, beginning with Goolsbee, one of the profession's most respected tax experts. A Harvard economist named Jeff Liebman has been influential in helping Obama think through budget and retirement issues; another, David Cutler, helped shape his views on health care. Goolsbee, in particular, is an almost unprecedented figure in Democratic politics: an academic economist with a top campaign position and the candidate's ear." - Bret Taylor
I love this: They're pragmatists--people who, when an existing paradigm clashes with reality, opt to tweak that paradigm rather than replace it wholesale. As Thaler puts it, "Physics with friction is not as beautiful. But you need it to get rockets off the ground." It might as well be the motto for Obama's entire policy shop. - Frances Haugen
Actually, Obama is guided very closely by Cornell West one of the great American Philosopher's at Princeton - Mark Gentry
I find it stunning that he's surrounded by so many economists, and has such a socialist agenda. Are there that many economists in the world who think that free-market capitalism is a stinky idea? Or did he just snag all of the non-capitalist economists for his advisory board? - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
Most economists believe that some market regulation is helpful. Opinions differ on specifics. The impression I get is that Obama's advisors are slightly left of center, if you had to pin them on a traditional scale, and not really anything a reasonable person would call "socialist" (though I hear the word increasingly used to describe any advocate of social programs). Cap-and-trade plans for emissions control, for example, are quite market-oriented. - ⓞnor
@nor: I can't speak for whomever else you hear the word 'socialist' from, but I define a socialist as someone who wishes to transfer to governmental control or financial oversight large chunks of what should be parts of the free market. This would include health care, retirement investing, and charity, amongst other things. It's hard to say that a lot of Republicans don't also fall into... more... - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
meanwhile, his trade policies are populist and very much at odds with what that article claims. - Gregor J. Rothfuss
"Though rational self-interest was the central tenet of neoclassical (i.e., modern) economics, they didn't take a wrecking ball to the field and replace it with some equally sweeping theory of human behavior. Instead, they labored to bring economics closer in line with how the world actually works, one small adjustment at a time." - Clare Dibble
