And our middle managers can't even remember to put the new cover sheets on their TPS reports, even after receiving 3 memos about it.

Yeah, I am gonna need you to go ahead and come in on saturday so we can stay competitive with India and China.

I am just glad I do not have to worry about any of this because I have people skills GOD-DAMN-IT.

Journal: Religion and Politics 11

This chick, Mara Vanderslice, was on Colbert last night saying that religious people should love Democrats, because the Bible says we should care about poor people, and Democrats care about poor people.

Religious people in America care about poor people, she said, and they "care that this administration has made a decision to condone the use of torture."

IBM Many Eyes After One Month 35

Posted by Hemos
from the measuring-the-web dept.
ReadWriteWeb writes "IBM's Many Eyes app, a 'shared visualization and discovery' service, has been running for a month now. In this article two of the IBM researchers behind Many Eyes, Martin Wattenberg and Fernanda B. Viégas, showcase some of the best visualizations so far. They also talk about the future of 'social data analysis' on the Web. Wattenberg and Viégas believe that Many Eyes is not just social software, but 'societal-scale software.' They say that Many Eyes represents a break from conventional visualization research. Traditionally, computer scientists concentrate on scaling in terms of data, making visualizations work for bigger and bigger databases. IBM's agenda with Many Eyes is to scale the audience, not the data."

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
