You are doing the dark lord’s work and it’s very entertaining. Keep it up! Read more

Sam Wang’s site is a better quality read. It might be little dry and academic for some, but unlike Silver, he doesn’t inject punditry into his analysis. The discussion in the comments is usually intelligent too. Read more

Might not be the news/information we need, but it’s definitely the news/information we deserve. Read more

I’m enjoying finding favorite Gawker writers on the blogs that survived after the auction. Like stumbling upon an oasis in the no more Gawker internet desert. I’m also getting up to speed on all the sports news through osmosis, so there’s that too. Read more

I'm applauding this news! My handful of shares of Tesla stock have done nothing but climb in the last year and my instinct says this is a good move and makes me consider buying more. I could regret that in the future but I'm willing to take the chance. I also work for a patent law firm and patent disputes are among Read more
