Late to the party on this one, I know, sorry. It turns out that conservative (read: religious) states have the highest porn rates in the country. Probably because they’re not allowed to have deviant (read: fun) sex at home. Meanwhile, people living in enlightened areas of the country have other outlets for their sexual urges, … [Read more…]

Last night, I had the privilege of marching with over 200 members of the community to protest the passage of the discriminatory Prop 8. Little disrupts the quiet of conservative Irvine outside the confines of the UC campus, and the unique nature of this event was underscored by the presence of an ABC News team … [Read more…]
Synchronized debating. This is exactly why the internet is so important. Why fair use is not just some abstraction but something that affects each of our lives. And, it’s funny.

I also find it … [Read more…]
dunno how long this will be up, but right now, you can Google stuff in 2001: it’s like a window to the past (most of the links are dead, so you’re really searching Google’s cache, but still fun 🙂 via
