It’s getting to be that time again. November 6th is the day of the annual Extra Life fundraiser. The gist is that people all around the world game in our own particular way (video games, board games, you name it!) and ask people for donations to fight childhood diseases. An example of using incentives for donations: [Read More…]
One of the most interesting people I follow on Twitter is wealthy businessman, Mark Cuban. Cuban is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA and a very sharp dude. Not only that, he’s a skeptic, as he showed in a youtube video when the NBA signed a deal with “Power Bracelets”: He’s also [Read More…]
Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert is pushing for a ten commandments monument on the AR capitol grounds. This, he says, is about history, and not religion.

He’s spent the last two years as an instructor and the director of the Audio Engineering and Music Technology program a Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, [Read More…]
Ok, so the Reason Rally is coming up. You may recall that I’ll be there squawking the national anthem. They’re doing one last fundraising push that is actually going very, very well, but more would still make a big difference. Our coalition members and just a handful of key donors have financed the majority of [Read More…]
