Get on the Cluetrain

I like being able to pay bills online. So why do so many companies keep changing the way they do this every few months? I have to reenter card and personal information, learn my way around their revamped website, and sometimes even change the settings on my machine to be able to use it at all. How is it that businesses don't get this should make it easy for people like me to give them our money?

Stop It Already

The majority of television commercials don't make me want to buy the products. Actually, they kind of make me wish the advertisers would spend their time hurting each other instead of annoying the hell out of me.

It Never Ends

Life seems to go in a series of widening and narrowing circular motions. Things seem to change but really aren't that different. And some people seem to never get past a certain point. No matter what they change, they can't seem to go past the stage where whatever it was happened. And that has an effect on the people around them. Often a sad thing.

I'd like to find the people who think that Cleverbot can pass for human and see if they can pass a Turing test. I think it still has a ways to go. Try it for yourself.

Have you ever done a thing that you know better than to do, a thing that you know you will regret later just because you're bored?

Alumnus, Alumna, Alumni, Alumnae

Alum is hydrated potassium aluminum sulfate and has been used in cosmetics, food additives, flame retardants, taxidermy, and a variety of other uses. The term "alum" can also be used to refer to a whole category of sulphate compounds, though strangely none of them had ever graduated from college.
