Matt Haughey asks the question: What if you invested $10,000 (in AAPL) the day before the keynote, then sold at the end of the keynote day?

Patrick Smith writes an excellent piece in the NY Times about the state of airport security. You might remember Patrick has a column in Salon called "Ask The Pilot" and a book by the same name.

If you're a nervous flier I can't recommend his book enough. Ever since I read it flights have been much more enjoyable and easy to get through.

Security not so much.

A Flickr photo-set of Wright's Hollyhock House. found on H+H.

The town I grew up in has a mortuary designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It's very beautiful inside and inconspicuous from the outside. I have to remember to take photos of it someday—though every time I'm there it's not a very good time for snapping photos.

Here's a fascinating Anti-Biography of B. Travan, best known for his book "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre".

While I was visiting my parents we watched my dad's favorite film: The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Now that I'm back at home I've gone off on a John Huston/Walter Huston/B. Travan Wikipedia excursion.

I'm signing up for Catalog Choice, I'll let you know how it goes. The site helps you opt-out of receiving paper catalogs by mailing the companies requests to remove you from their rolls. found on the unstoppable links.

I like the composition of this short bio of Yuri Gagarin and Alan Shepard. It would be interesting to see many people featured this way: some passing away on the left and new people in history being born on the right. found on coudal.

Google Reader's new friendz feature is the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my life! I think it's worth pointing out that when we don't like software, people can turn around a fix quickly. I think Paul's take was best: had Google made it work correctly from the start or soon after launch, people wouldn't have adapted to the broken-ness of the software.

I just like noting things like this to file away in my own development experience. Of course I'm joking about it ruining my life, but I did hide all my friendz; if I want to know what they're sharing I'll read their weblog.

I liked this Google Adwords campaign even if it might not have been real. It won an award so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Hilarious accidental revealing of a thief. Hard to believe it made it past all levels of production. found this on waxy.

I would play this game that David describes on Ironic Sans. Why have I not seen his weblog on people's best of lists?
