Hodgepodge

There were a few things I ran across over the last few days that are worth sharing but need not much by way on commentary.

1: A little cartoon that I, disturbingly, agree with.

2: A newspaper in New Mexico “seizes the day” with their proclamation that “Obama Wins”. They also noted:

the newspaper has a goal of reaching one million readers with each edition, but prints just 10,000 copies of each of its issues.

So, “each copy must be read by 100 different and distinct people. This places an enormous burden on our intrepid readers. However, it is a burden that we must insist you carry. So, please, read quickly, care for the physical condition of the paper and pass it on to your next chosen reader.”

The liberal leaning alternative newspaper ended by imploring its readers to get out and vote, “even if we did spoil the ending for you.”

3: Well designed transparency—Good Guide gives more visibility into corporate political leanings.

4: Speaking of good design; a cool visual metaphor for memes (make your own interpretation).
