Can you blog about being fired and still take the high road? Derek Powazek and Heather Champ skirt the line.

Of course, a mention in the NYT is also a nice thing for a musician.

Flickr Kills Yahoo! Photos - Poorly In My Opinion

Yeah, I'm sorry, but this is a piss-poor way to shut down a photo service. You're Yahoo. You should a) keep the photos themselves online at those URLs forever, and b) Offer a one-click import to Flickr option.

May 1 is now officially ‘Loyalty Day’ in the U.S.

Are they kidding? Is this an April 1 joke? Well, at least it makes a nice change from the other 364 Fear Days. update: I overreacted, this has been the name of May 1 in the U.S. since the red scare days of 1958. But it's still shocking.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
