KillStarter.com: Crowdsourced Assassination

Day 7 of 30 of Writing Challenge I was talking with my roommate today about how upset I still am about the state of software patent laws. Specifically I’m pissed that companies like Intellectual Ventures even exist. Their entire business relies on having more money and more patents than the people they shake down. They [...]

Software Patent Law Sucks: I Hate Companies Like Intellectual Ventures

Day 2 of 30 of Writing Challenge I finished listening to NPR’s This American Life episode about patent trolling today. You would think it’d be boring, but This American Life always manages to draw me into what you’d think be boring shows. The premise of this episode was the examination of how software patents and [...]

Why I Hate Food Trucks

This was an old post I had wrote in January. I still hate food trucks, but since I hear less about them my hate as dissipated some what. Enjoy! Along with my hate for Twitter I’m gonna add Food Trucks which seem to be all the rage these days to my hate list. “Buy why? They are [...]

Future Checkin Makes Foursquare Future Pointless

I love it how Techcrunch sometimes misses the bigger picture story on the tech news they cover. Actually, scratch that, I don’t love it, I think it’s annoying.  But maybe that’s their strategy totally miss something so other people (like me) will write something in response to it.  Well it worked… Bookmark It Hide Sites

iPad Not so iHot

I don’t consider myself an Apple “Fanboy,” but I do happen to like quite a few Apple Products.  For me it’s not about just being blindly loyal to a company for the sake of being loyal (ie Fanboy-ish), but really just choosing to purchase products that I think are better and do what I want [...]

Twitter Is For Dummies

I was amazed to find that there was a Twitter for Dummies book out there…but then again there’s just about a [fill in the blank] for Dummies book for everything (my personal favorite is Cleaning Your Cat’s Litter Box for Dummies). As you guys know I’m a SUPER BIG AWESOME-O BEST-EST Fan of Twitter (see [...]

LMFAO Please Stop Making “I’m in Miami Trick” Versions

I have to get something off my chest.  It’s been bothering me for the past few months and I’ve been meaning to write about it, but hadn’t made the time.  Better now than never.  So here it goes… Bookmark It Hide Sites

Board of Business Center Disclosure Scam

It seems like more and more scams are welcoming themselves into my life recently.  This one is probably one of the scumiest scams I’ve come across since it’s one of those scams which look convincingly realistic. Bookmark It Hide Sites

The John Mitchell Email Internet Lotto Scam

Apparently I have won a combined total of 1, 252,000 euros plus 2,500,000 dollars.  I’m rich!  The best part was I didn’t have to enter any contests or lottos.  Just by using the internet and my “patronage of internet services” I was selected as the winnder.  All I have to do is email the claims [...]

Some People Hate Twitter More than Me

So it’s no secret that I’m not the biggest fan of twitter.  I have my reasons, but I feel I’m somewhat rational about my hatred towards it (can hate even be rational?).  Anyway, I monitor my blog traffic and the google terms that send people to my humble web space.  This one entry in the [...]
