The Fall of Western Civilization - it's official!
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 09, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
"MR. POTATO HEAD ELVIS PRESLEY Figures Launch August 2010" (see linked article). If this is the product Western Civilization is producing during an economic crisis, and people actually want it and will buy it, I think we can officially declare...

Today the recession hit rock bottom as I went to the bank and discovered that they don't really want my money. I was just getting a CD and the woman kept referring me to some investment adviser who could help me invest my money. This means: THE...

S&P 500 is 24 percent below its level 10 years ago
FRIDAY, MAY 21, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Well, for all of my working career, I was told about the magic of compounding (the story of the grains of rice and the checkerboard, etc.) and how, if I invested in stocks, I would have a huge "nest egg" for retirement. The benefits of the...

Google ruined by cluttered interface
THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Google has completely ruined itself. Always known for its sleek, functional user interface, Google has swallowed a poison pill and gone to the same clutter as all the other search engines. The screen now has a useless sidebar that takes up screen...

Groom: Vicksburg, 1863 (Review In Progress)
MONDAY, MAY 17, 2010

Dumping Google's newly cluttered interface
WEDNESDAY, MAY 12, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Something is in the water, I guess. First, oneplace.com completely ruins their web site (apparently by going down a checklist of bad web site design, and implementing all of them - I blogged about this elsewhere) and Google has changed their...

Oneplace.com: A Horrible Web Site Revamp
MONDAY, MAY 10, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..

Wendy's Hates Mothers!
SATURDAY, MAY 08, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
I took my mother by Wendy's at lunchtime to get her a fish sandwich for a Mother's Day. She found out Wendy's no longer had their heavily-advertised fish sandwiches and went away empty-handed and disappointed. This is not the first time this has...

"socially unskilled computing experts"
FRIDAY, MAY 07, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Hmmm... an October 2009 PDF just hit a computer science RSS feed I look at. I was looking through the PDF and saw: "The era of socially unskilled computing experts must give way to a new era in which computing people can influence society and...
