(Wasted) Time is Money

“Monetization” is big these days. The idea of taking your spare whatever – empty web page spaces, e-mail backgrounds, Facebook profiles – and turning them into cash, is irresistible during these turbulent times. Personally, I think we should demand to be paid when we wear a “brand name” T-shirt, jacket, or other item of clothing that sports a corporate logo.

People of the Book(mark)

You gotta read, mama always said. Reading is fun – and fundamental, teacher would ceaselessly intone. Do you want to be a dope all of your life, watching TV all day? Pick up a book – right now!
Ah, the voices of childhood. Of course, like any good son/student. I listened to the powers that be and read books. Lots of books. And what did I get for my trouble? Bifocals!
