Winner: Fact checkers. They've been in high demand and kept busy. I hope they're being paid per fact checked. Winner: Twitter. Once again, Twitter proved its relevance. Without Twitter, I would have thrown something at the TV or died from implosion, you know, all that screaming inside my head and my chest. Loser: All of [...]

The fifty people that were murdered in Orlando were our people. They're not just "those people". They're you and me. I can see many thinking, "Why should I care? I am not gay. My children are not gay. I don't know any gay people." Gay rights are human rights. When you implicitly condone violence perpetrated [...]

Dear Mark Z, congratulations on the new baby. And kudos for knowing Chinese. I've just added you to the list of "See? These people can learn to speak Chinese. Why can't you?" to show my kids. Oh, don't worry. I am not asking you for money like Kanye West just did. To be fair though, he's [...]

Finding a book on Kindle is like finding a guy on Tinder. You have to make quick, uninformed decisions based on woefully inadequate amount of information. To extend this bad analogy further: reading the book "reviews" on Amazon to determine whether a book is a good fit is akin to asking a guy's flock of [...]

If you, like me, are obsessed with documenting your otherwise mundane life with your phone+Instagram, secretly wishing the filters would make your life seem less ordinary, then you probably have also been looking for a way to share your Instagram feed on your blog.

  Dear Internet, please stop sharing, re-posting, re-tweeting, liking, +'ing, quotes about travel that do not check privileges inherently associated with the ability to pick up and go. I love travel. I enjoy travel. Heck, I focus in the travel product area at work. But I also understand that the ability to travel is a [...]

“Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” -- Margaret Atwood I came across a helpful, objective, step by step analysis of "Reverse [Fill in the blank]ism" complaints and the fallacy in those complaints. Often in the call for "compassion", for understanding, for listening to the [...]

I've read the Millennials are the color-blind generation, and it's always bothered me a bit. To be honest, I was hoping that I not be the person to break the bad news to my kids why this optimism is misplaced. Millennials, as a whole, feel that colorblindness is something to strive toward, yet they believe in "celebrating [...]

So were men consulted when mother's day was invented? Did they agree to the deal or was it simply a unilateral contract? Maybe it seems unfair to some that they have to be on their best behavior the whole day? What's up with "I" have to do everything around the house? The whole 24 hours? [...]

(Click on the flow map to see the larger version on Wikipedia) This flow map was recently touted by Dr. James Grime on Numberphile as "The Greatest Ever Infographic".
