Weekly Summary, 2/21/10

Well, I’m late posting this weekly summary, but I figured I’d go for it anyways.

Foxconn Workers Don’t Get Mad, They Get Even (By Burning Their Factory Down)

Gun Ban in National Parks Ends on Monday – The little blurb on this blog posts highlights what’s wrong with our legislative process. Congress passed a bill on credit card reform last summer. Someone attached a rider to that bill to allow guns in National Parks. How are those related, why was that allowed to be attached to this bill?

Confirmed: Google Reader is Going Real Time (Updated) – I use Google Reader a lot, and it going real time has been nice. All of my blogs are now using PubSubHubBub so they’re practically real time now.

Radiolab Product Safety Announcement – I thought this was funny. I loved to listen to Radiolab while driving, maybe that isn’t the best thing to do.

Tumblr Screws Hipster Underclass to Appease Hipster Overlords at Pitchfork – Depending upon who you listen to Tumblr took a subdomain/user name from a user to give to a company for their own use.

Verizon and Skype make sweet music together with new mobile app – I was sort of excited for this, until I read that they’re not going to allow for domestic Skype-Out calls and that it won’t work at all over 3G.

I snapped this picture at The Abbey Theater.

I wonder who shoveled this? And if that free Daily paper is that much better than the other two in there.
