    Steve Spielberg was rejected from USC three times.

    Never let rejection get you down. Similarly, if you see someone get rejected, never let that lower your opinion of them.

    France Formally Requests US Military Aid for Mali Invasion

    “the northern Malian desert poses little threat as it is and could become a magnet for terrorists if the US gets too heavily involved”

    I’m not sure how anyone could seriously consider increasing intervention there. Did they forget Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam?

    Aaron, Manning, Assange, Kyriakoy, Occupy, all persecuted, hounded, some tortured. For what? For speaking truth to power, for revealing corruption, war crimes. For liberating information.

    Meanwhile, Yoo, Addington, Libby, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gonzales go around signing book covers and giving lectures about national security. The murderers, torturers and torture apologists are celebrated. The whistleblowers crushed.

    Blankfein, Greenberg, Pandit, Mozilo, Geithner, go around lecturing us about financial responsibility, instead of rotting in jail for fraud, theft, embezzlement, corruption, bribery and multiple criminal conspiracies.

    This is the disgusting injustice the underlies Aaron Swartz’s death. A Department of Justice that makes a mockery of the word “justice”, where the rule of law has become a joke, where the greatest criminals of our day wear ties and suits and are *absolutely beyond prosecution*, while the poorest get relentless, unforgiving, zero tolerance prosecution for the tiniest of misdeamenors.

    Aaron was cursed with the ability to open his mind wide enough to see the world in all its ugly injustice and reality. His idealism, passion and honesty made him speak truth to power, so he was crushed.

    There are only two crimes that are punished in this country now: being poor or challenging the powerful.

    $5 melanoma (skin cancer) diagnosis from a certified dermatologist? Sounds like a good deal. Visiting real doctors is incredibly expensive. Study: Many Skin Cancer-Detecting Apps Are Not Accurate

    AAPL is holding steady at exactly $500 – Apple is due to report its Q1 2013 fiscal results on January 23. Seen a lot of iPhones around – I’m guessing it’ll go up after Jan 23rd?

    Saw the “Overly Attached Girlfriend” meme ad for the Samsung SSD 840 – pretty memorable actually, and an SSD isn’t a bad idea.

    Zynga overextended itself and is cutting costs – something a lot of companies are doing now (or in the near future).. cheap money (artificially low interest rates) encourage overextension. It feels good in the short term but is bad in the long term. Zynga shut down their Japan office.

    TechCrunch – games are getting shut down – reminds of when AWABA was shut down when I was a kid. It was sad. It happens. It’s a cycle. We ought to expect it by now.

    Zynga Inc. (ZNGA) is at $2.45 right now – still a $1.92B company. But while games make a lot of money, they don’t make THAT much. They support a lifestyle business – not a big company. It’s a hits-based industry. You need to keep your overhead low – ridiculously low – like $0 low.
