Thanks for the votes and feedback on the polls widget. The issues with these widgets is that they need to update every time someone votes. This goes against the page caching that many sites like mine use. The purpose of page caching is to make your page loads quicker and use less of your bandwidth. I think I will try this one for now. I will throw the first real poll up tomorrow. Remember, it’s just for fun.

Sean Parker unloads on Facebook “exploiting” human psychology
Sean Parker was the founding president of Facebook. Here are some quotes from the article:

“How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?”
“you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology.”
The Rich And The Rest Of Us
“The three richest people in the US – Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Warren Buffett – own as much wealth as the bottom half of the US population, or 160 million people…Our wealthiest 400 now have more wealth combined than the bottom 64% of the US population, an estimated 80m households or 204 million people,” the report says. “That’s more people than the population of Canada and Mexico combined…The report says the “billionaire class” continues to “pull apart from the rest of us” at the fastest rate ever recorded. “We have not witnessed such extreme levels of concentrated wealth and power since the first gilded age a century ago.”
Ivy Leaguers, LMAO
The Geeks at Dartmouth Collage found out that cantennas actually work. Made one of those back in the day when I was trying to get into wardriving. This “discovery” has been all over the web this week.
