Many Hands Make Light Work

Wow, am I flattered.

I've been reading Robert Stacy McCain's blog for a while now, since one of my friends had been peppering me various RSM posts, which always seemed to be relevant to our recent conversations.

The post that sealed the deal, and got RSM's blog onto my RSS feed, however, was this one about Christina Hendricks, whom I'll always think of as "Mrs. Reynolds" from Firefly.

Today on his blog, after I tossed him an e-mail introducing him to AddThis, he posted this:

Thank you, Eric Reasons! thus thanking me twice over. (Once with his public offering of thanks, and a second time with the Hendricks clip).

Funny thing is, I never mentioned my infatuation with Hendricks to him. Clearly, he's simply a man of excellent taste.

In case you're unaware of who Mrs. Reynolds is, enjoy this snippet of the best TV show to ever grace the airwaves.

Mal Reynolds: "There's no bliss! I don't know this girl!"
Jayne: "Then can I know her?"

A Christmas Present

What more could I ask for? Wine. Innovation. A blow against government over-regulation. A story about a penniless Yugoslavian immigrant. Capitalism. And whooping some French ass. All from Reason.tv. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night. http://reason.tv/video/show/red-white-and-sacrebleu

The Re-Opening Experiment

We should remind ourselves that, this Memorial Day weekend and the weeks that follow, we are subjects in a grand experiment to see how good we are at social distancing as stay-at-home orders are being slowly lifted. The state's stay-at-home order was never meant to keep you, individually, safe from infection. It was meant to keep hospital's safe from being overwhelmed by too many of us needing them at the same time. In Michigan, the daily new cases of COVID-19 are higher today than they were when we locked down in late March. We are testing whether or not we can open up (with all of our new precautions and protocols) without spiking the rate of spread, but make no mistake: it *is* an experiment, and we *are* the test subjects. Please don't get careless as things start to open up. We need to get our economies back on track, but we are still a long way (and a vaccine away) from being out of the woods. Stay vigilant, folks. Wash your hands. Wear a mask. As has always been the

Crowdsourcing Curation: The Social Graph as Gatekeeper

I've written before about the compromise we tacitly agree to when amateurs take over the roles formerly held by professionsals . The Internet promotes this takeover by lowering the cost of production and transmission to near zero for nearly every user, for everything from words (blogs) to pictures (Flickr) to video (YouTube). As Clay Shirky put it so well : As freedom to produce increases, average quality necessarily goes down. For example: Thanks to Flickr, we now have access to a mind-boggling array of beautiful pictures, but that's partly because we simply have access to a mind boggling array of pictures, period . Some of these, of course, are beautiful; but there are a lot more of Aunt Bettie's 43rd picture of a bundt cake than of an Annie Leibovitz Rolling Stone cover. It is at this point that many people interject: "This is the problem with the internet! It's full of crap!" Many would argue that without professional producers, editors, publishers, an
