I read this article on cnet about cars with wireless technology. I think its a little crazy. I’m thinking anyone who has ever seen a computer crash, or their cellphone hunt for a wifi signal will be with me on this one. As someone who enjoys much of the latest technology, cars talking to other… Read More


I had a talk with my father in law a while back and he had me listen to a song called “analog man” which you can watch here. My father in law joked that he felt like an analog man in a digital world. He regularly converts his records to mp3s so he can listen to… Read More

In the story I linked to, the image from salon.com student (Cody Wilson) makes a statement that the issue is bigger than guns. I want to suggest he is… Read More
