Stephanie Guttormson on youtube!

Stephanie is a long-time friend of mine and is the operations director for the Richard Dawkins Foundation.  She’s damn good people and she now has a youtube channel that’s taking off.  Very analytical and fact-filled.  I subscribed.  I don’t do a whole lot of stuff on anti-vax (even though I think anti-vaxers are wrong and [Read More...]

Picking up a groomsman today.

Hey gang.  One of the down sides of living in the untouched wilderness of Northern Arkansas (as my parents do) is that the nearest airport is 2.5 hours away.  One of my groomsmen is flying in today and I’m making the run up to get him as well as visiting some old college friends.  So [Read More...]

John Oliver on net neutrality.

Ok, gonna post this before we get on the road.  I get asked a lot to explain net neutrality, and this is one of the best explanations I’ve heard: Watch the vid, then click here and make noise. If you want a glimpse at who is responsible for this?  Look at your local internet/cable provider: [Read more...]

Find me a wedding ring!

Ok, Michaelyn and I are driving 2.5 hours to the big city today on the hunt for wedding rings (squeee!).  We’ll visit my brother and watch the LCS today before heading out to stores.   But stores suck and they’re so unoriginal.  Here’s where you come in. We’re having a Doctor Who themed wedding.  We don’t [Read More...]
