An explanation of why the overall workforce hasn’t increased in size. I know the answer – corps are holding onto their profits, handing it out to investors and shareholders and getting more efficient. Why do they need to hire more workers?
Back home now…..
Google is announcing a FIFTH city – this time Grandview, MO. Now mind you – Shawnee and Grandview ain’t cities – but who’s counting?
I wonder if I’ll get called for deposition. I actually have evidence regarding this case. One day at Max’s at the Airport I meet this guy named Michael Arrington. Along with him is his “girlfriend” – and what a girl she was.
Back in SF – getting work done
Spring is finally showing up – right on schedule…. Back in SF again – my old home. Weather is perfect.
Clearly the ‘Industrial Internet’ is a buzz word who’s day has come….
My wife and daughter are going on a Girl Scout overnight camping trip – only one problem. Its snowing.
Grooveshark Broadcast – is trying new things out and skirting the laws… only a matter of time
As a young man I began smoking reefer, being too young to be a Hippie and eventually figuring out that I was too old to be a Yuppie. Instead I became a Me generation software entrepreneur who tried to change the world – in my own way. It was from my father and grandfather’s idealism, my mother’s community activism and the spirit of creativity that I based my life upon.
For 44 years – that creativity has been driven by reefer.
This is the first 420 day that Marijuana is legal somewhere in America. I’ve been going to Amsterdam since 1975 (the same year Steve Jobs and Dan Kottke went to India) so this is truly a momentous day. Congrats to the States of Colorado and Washington and congrats to the various Marijuana Industrialists, Howard Rosenthal, NORML and the others – who helped get us to this day.
Once legal marijuana research and investment starts to increase, I think we’ll see a whole lotta benefits to legalization besides tax dollars – but cash is a great place to start. Cash is what created this prohibition in the first place and hemp will now become a major legal plant for medicinal herbs, rope, clothing, food and lord knows – what else (can you spell “massage oil?” Cellulose?)
We’ve only just begun.
No longer do we have to hide under the bridges – to enjoy a smoke.

BTW that’s a chunk of Hash…… Afghani is memory serves me well.
Google picks up the steam – buys Utopia from the city of Provo, Utah. Not sure how many of oyu have been tracking this evolution of gigabit networking (call you say “Digitale Trieste?”) _ but for me – Project Utopia in Provo, UT was one of the FIRST muni broadband plays – ever! Now it’ll be Google third city. Indeed they’ll have to spend some money ‘upgrading’ – as they sure as hell haven’t been running pieces of glass into people’s homes in Provo, but hey I bet the backend and middle level stuff is just FINE. Thank you Google – and as the “perfect storm moment” slips away from Kansas City – I just wanna say “I told you so……………” KC moved WAY TOO SLOW! And is STILL moving too slow! But needless to say – I’m prejudiced in my thinking…………
theCivicCommons is no more – Dan Moulthrop is now the CEO of the City Club – congrats to Dan
Attracting more Immigrants to Northeast Ohio - good luck with that!
Both our girls are in Girl Scouts (our youngest is “just” a Brownie) – now it looks like they can earn badges for videogame programming! As Macklemore says “this is fucking AWESOME!”
Aviary Photo Editor 2.0 looks great! Complete re-write!
Fertilizer plant exploding – 60-70 people dead – all on viral video “Dad – please lets get out of here!”
God bless this country. Who wants to bet on who did the terrorist bombing in Boston? Right wing whackos or Islamic Jihadists? My money is on the former. Afterall – it is Tax Day – and they want their representation – and gun laws – but no Jews, Women or anybody who doesn’t look like them.
Indeed – its good to be back home.
Its great to hear that city officials are concerned over unemployment and skills gap. These are TRUE leaders. How long did it take them to figure THAT out?
