Overheard at Sundance, 2007: No seriously, hear me out. Let's say Sith artifacts can enable their bearers to travel through time (there is semi-canonical precedent for this), why not reboot the franchise? I'm SURE I can get ABC on board,... Continue »

Back in the day (1994), we had to get our R.E.M. information from the listserv (that's email for you kids) run out of Lynchburg College in Virginia. I've carried this manila folder containing the R.E.M. FAQ and 3/4" of lyrics around from place to place while finishing college, working in Europe, getting engaged, married, moving 3 times, adopting 3 kids,... Continue »

I particularly like the alt text: The comic is a matrix, each entry is how one kind of employee views another. Product managers view themselves as orchestra conductors. Site reliability Engineers view the product managers as a person asking for a space shuttle launch. Software engineers view the product manager as a person sitting in front of a computer, checking and responding to email.

I am so tired of hearing about bacon. Look, I get it. You like the taste of bacon. You'd eat bacon for every meal. You'd eat it in ice cream, on donuts, and in chocolate. Any food in which bacon has not been a traditional ingredient for more than 10 years, you would definitely be game to put bacon up in there and eat it.
