This is an actual tweet made by an actual Texas state legislator in response to the public showing up to the Texas State Capitol building in favor of a filibuster of an abortion bill. Regardless of your views on the bill itself, I think all decent people can agree that the public showing up to a public place to express a political opinion in a nonviolent manner is the exact inverse of “terrorism.” Shameful.
The Governor thinks the SC Department of Revenue data breach is like Hurricane Hugo.

Ever wondered what Chuck Woolery was up to?
I don’t agree with his politics but the videos are pretty entertaining.
Will be keeping an eye on the debate for a little while tonight. What better way to try the new WordPress live blog plugin than to try live-blogging the debate? Here we go…
ProPublica has a nicely designed interactive list of likely SOPA and PIPA supporters in both chambers of Congress. Current TV has a cool explanation about how ProPublica’s app, dubbed SOPA Opera, determines who is a supporter and who is an opponent — pretty fantastic stuff (especially if you’re into sentiment analysis).
While Congress is arguing points of policy labeled with “job-killer” rhetoric, perhaps they should look into what international patent trolls are doing to independent developers here in America. Independent developers have driven so much innovation in the last decade and have been a real bright spot in a very dismal economic climate. Craig Hockenberry, he of the Iconfactory, has a very sobering first-hand view of this as his company is the target of such litigation. He likens the current climate as “coding in a minefield,” an assessment with which I am in complete agreement. How do vague software patents held by non-practicing companies possibly contribute to an economic climate conducive to innovation and growth?
