At least I recognize my biases. Thinking that ads are a horrible way to make money because they very rarely, if ever, work on me? Bias. Which of course leads to whether Flickr's new biz model will work or not. If they can make the ad based model work, the new free perks are genius.
I think the next person who gets a country song stuck in my head should be punched. "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down" is might effing depressing, and "Wagon Wheel" is silly. How can a wagon wheel rock anyone? All they do is roll! I don't even like country music. Grrr.

The corporation I work for is holding a company wide vote over .... [drum roll] ..... nothing less than a desktop background color. Can you fucking believe it? (Apparently, there are no more pressing issues to resolve.)
