This is a quick 'n' dirty placeholder for a personal homepage, which syndicates the most recent posts from my Google+ feed Posterous blog and shared articles from Google Reader. Real homepage coming when I get around to it.

+Kevin C. shared the following:"It's not entirely clear what the proposed rules allow, but it sounds awfully close to allowing last mile ISPs to double-charge for service. (also known as violating net-neutrality) I pay for Internet access, not Internet-but-too-slow-for-Netflix access. This is ridiculous. You can't ethically charge the internet services I choose to use extra for sending me the data I asked for."If the FCC was actually doing its job and supporting citizens, it would have declared internet service a common carrier already."

Original Post from Andreas Schou:

Unsurprisingly, there is very small demographic difference between the people who have been unemployed for short and long durations. They are about the same in terms of education, about the same in terms of hours worked, about the same in terms of industry. The difference?

The long-term unemployed lost their jobs at or near the bottom of the labor recession. The short-term unemployed did not. That's either (a) all there is, or (b) there is some je ne sais quoi which correlates heavily with whether you lose your job during the recession. 

Occam's Razor favors (a) over (b).
