But who out there would take a run at acquiring VMware? - Julian
EMC acquired 80% in 2004, but they keep separate books. I think they'll split off again at some point. - Eric - Watch Me Now

RealClearEducation - Kids Don't Learn Better Just Because They're Young 'Little Sponges': What Really Works
"Yet when the adult did the exact same thing, but also made plain to the child her actions were for the child’s benefit, that she was teaching, then the child understood that magnetism held special significance for spoodle-hood. I think this study has an interesting implication for differences in kids’ preparedness for schooling, associated with their home environment. We tend to focus on differences in the richness of experiences available to kids. That’s important, but this experiment provides a concrete example of small differences in parenting may have important consequences for children’s learning. “Little sponges” don’t learn certain types of information, even in a rich environment. They have to be taught." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Big food: Michael Pollan thinks Wall Street has way too much influence over what we eat - Vox
"Pollan has an interesting take on genetically modified foods. The promises behind GM foods  —  much less need for pesticides, much higher yields  —  haven’t come true save in isolated cases. But they have driven a massive change in food production. "What genetic modification of crops has given us is dramatic consolidation," he says. "Monsanto has used the huge profits from Roundup Ready seeds to buy up a sizable portion of the seed industry." This is something, Pollan says, that you see again and again when you look at which food innovations get attention  —  and funding. A close look often shows that the problem being solved wasn’t a problem in how we grow food, but in how companies grow profits." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Pertussis outbreak in Contra Costa County. Began at an elementary school. This is why I never wanna leave the house with the baby.
Not surprising. All the high-and-mighty anti-vacc assholes live in CCC. - Hookuh Tinypants
Scary! And my mom wants me to take the baby into the nursing home! Hell no. - Yolanda
Unfortunately, Hookuh, I'd have to disagree: I'd bet Marin County has more than its share of them as well, and there are a few such asshats in Alameda County, I'm afraid. (The latter would concern Mary Carmen more...) - Walt Crawford
Actually, our vax rate is pretty high. I looked into it when we moved. I suspect it may have a lot to do with all of the immigrant pops here....must get vaxed before entering/upon entering. Works for me. - Mary Carmen

Brain-dead this morning. Apparently, it shows, because my co-workers keep asking me if I'm feeling OK.
