It’s safe to say that the pilot of the Enola Gay who dropped the atomic bomb over Hiroshima would not have agreed to immolate a hundred thousand people with a flamethrower one at a time.

This right here is why I’m off the Obama train.

And you are CRAZY if you vote for Hillary and think this bullshit will improve one single iota.

Sorry, The Presidential Salute Isn't A Real Thing

But here’s the issue: There’s no regulation that stipulates presidents must salute the troops. In fact, for the first 192 years of our republic, it didn’t happen. None of the first 38 commanders in chief did it. And some of those dudes had some serious military experience. Eisenhower? Grant? I mean, Teddy Roosevelt was a war hero. Surely he felt compelled to click his heels together and cut a perfect knife-handed salute when he passed a uniform service member, right? Wrong. It was literally something that Ronald Reagan made up one day.

The only way to fight the venture capital model is not to support the product in the first place. Venture capital is private subsidy that keeps the startup alive long enough until enough people have joined their platform. At this point, it’s too late. By being part of the platform we have created its value. This is the value that is sold in an exit. The only way to resist this system is to not build that value in the first place. Once a network has grown to the sort of size Facebook or Twitter has, there is very little anyone can do. But we have an opportunity to make sure that new networks that are funded by venture capital do not reach that point.

I’m sorry, Paul, but by taking venture capital you have made a crucial mistake that is incompatible with the goals you set out in your manifesto and I will not support yet another venture-capital funded network only to be disappointed at the time of the inevitable exit.

So here’s what I’m doing: I’m leaving Ello. Before it can grow. Before it can exit. And I suggest that you do the same.

Or, even better, do not join it in the first place.

Also included on Tom Hawking’s list of “Worst Key Changes”

ariverisariver:

Berlin : “Take My Breath Away”

Celine Dion : “My Heart Will Go On”

Whitney Houston : fucking “I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU”

I don’t give a shit about your indie snobbery, if you can’t admit that the key change in “I Will Always Love You” isn’t effective as SHIT, your musical opinion is rendered NULL. AND. VOID.

ROFL.
