Corrected. Thanks for noticing.
I think you meant "rich people." Every Democrat I know works for a living or is retired after a lifetime of work.
Better late than never, although this was *way* late...
I know the cab and limo business pretty well (check my
My little group of owner/drivers competed successfully with Boston Coach, Carey, and other national companies. I have no doubt that I could compete successfully with Uber, too. Lyft? A low-rent gypsy cab service. I could beat them, too, but why bother? I did a little gypsy cab work many years ago, but didn't love it.
The transcript was late, but it's up now.
I wrote to my Congressman, Vern Buchanan, earlier today and told him to kick these guys in the ass for me.
One generally isn't ironic/sarcastic when "pushing" a company or its products.
A lot of Slashdot back end code is being rewritten, and HTML5 is supposed to be part of the deal. All the people who actually work on the site and read your comments agree that Flash video is [insert bad word here].
Why bother? Because it's a challenge and it's fun. I'm working on a customized bike with stabilizer wheels instead of simply buying a trike like other Old People.
Why? It's a challenge and it's fun.
Wow. My whole laptop cost less than a Kinesis keyboard.
Thousands of viewers, 10 or 20 complaints. That seems like a pretty good ratio to me.
And, of course, if you have good ideas for video interviewees, why don't you send them to me instead of complaining? Please make sure to include contact info. My email is robinATroblimo-com.
That wall of screen was a tradeshow display -- by Google, of course. But check this link (it's in the intro text) again: https://groups.google.com/foru...
The idea isn't that every Web designer in the world should have his or her own wall of screens, but that you and other people who make sites and games and such might collaborate on setting up a group of displays that includes some of the most popular OSes, browsers, and device form factors.
I have always been shocked at how many people who make websites design for a browser, OS, and screen size just like theirs. I remember a conversation in 1998 or so with with a web designer who said, "But our target audience is like you and me - they all have big monitors."
I said, "Really?" and hauled out my little laptop. "What if I'm looking at your site in a hotel room someplace instead of in my home office?"
"Oh," he said.
While I was going through this video to add titles and intro/outro music etc., then writing the text intro, I kept thinking about the anybrowser movement and the guy I first heard about it from, Jeffrey Zeldman - http://www.zeldman.com/
I think I'll do an interview with him. He is like the original godfather of web design, and a great guy in general.
Yes, pocket change in a national election. But as Larry said, they're only trying to influence a few Congressional races this year, and more of them in 2016.
For those who don't know: At the bottom of every page there's a link from "Beta" to the real Slashdot site.
