Politics, bleh.

August 20, 2008

I totally agree with Seth Godin today:

The reliance on negative stories in politics makes me sick. I think we should be above that. The fact that negative stories have influenced every election of my lifetime, though, means that I’m wrong, we’re not above it.

It physically makes me sick thinking about it. I just want to shake somebody and scream, “Stop! You’re hurting us.”

Why do they have to resort to tearing each other down? Isn’t it an obvious lose-lose? We have to choose one of them, but if both of them have all these flaws, they are both a mistake. It makes us feel dumb, and it forces the eventual President to overcome a handicap right from the beginning.

Future Presidential candidates, don’t hurt the American public! Maybe John Stewart could step in here.

Blog Action Day does Poverty!

August 15, 2008

If you don’t frequent the blogosphere, or are new, you may have missed last year’s Blog Action Day. It’s a non-profit event that invites bloggers of every kind to post about the same issue on the same day (October 15th). Last year the issue was the environment, but this year they’re doing something much closer to my heart: Poverty.

Yesss. *Fist pump*

Check out the awesome video they put together: Blog Action Day for Poverty.

Joe Sangl starts a new series: Restructuring Debt

August 13, 2008

Joe Sangl just started a new series Restructuring Debt. This is absolutely the first thing you should do if you’re trying to become debt-free. Figure out what your high-interest loans are and see what you can do to reduce them, consolidate them, or transfer them to other organizations offering a lower rate.

Check out his new tool (linked to in the post). I’ve taken the liberty to do it myself: check it out.

Facebook Worm Spreading

August 7, 2008

There’s a worm spreading around Facebook, and I felt it necessary to warn my friends about it. It basically tricks you into downloading their trojan (bad software, not a condom).

Here’s a brief article with more details from TechCrunch.
