"Cohen in fact has Asperger's syndrome, a condition on the mild end of the autism spectrum that gives him almost superhuman powers of concentration but can make it difficult for him to relate to other people."The references to his revelation coding is a bit much for me but 40 million people are believers so there you have it. Ironically, he doesn't get high off his own supply:
'The one person who hasn't joined the plundering is Cohen himself. He says he has never downloaded a single pirated file using BitTorrent. Why? He suspects the MPAA would love to make a legal example of him, and he doesn't want to give them an opening. He's the perfect candidate for downloading, though, since he doesn't care if he sees TV live, doesn't subscribe to basic cable, and already sits at a computer all day long. The only shows he watches are those he buys on DVD. He particularly loved the first season of Paris Hilton's The Simple Life. "You can watch that show for six hours," Cohen says, "and your brain is still empty."'Word. I was listening to: Man vs. Ape by Eyedea & Abilities when I wrote this
"Laliberté early on devised the formula that would launch his quirky circus into international prominence: Promote the show and not the more easily replaced performers; eliminate spoken dialogue so that the productions appeal to diverse audiences; and most important, cut out expensive and controversial animal acts. "I'd rather feed three acrobats than one elephant," he said at the time."Oh and Suzanne, you've prolly already heard about this [n] times since it appeared in Business Week so forgive the repetition.
"Oprah's recommendations had a bigger impact on the sales of books than anything we have previously seen in literature, or seen since"I was listening to: Poor Righteous Teachers - Gods by DJ Premier when I wrote this

You've probably already heard the news that Google's gonna index a whole bunch of print books. The future is here and it's literary baby! What's most interesting to me about this is the fact that Google's relationships are non-exclusive. That means that other folks that wanna use the work that Google does to get the books scanned are free to do so. Cool. Also cool:
“Google officials say the books it will be scanning from its partnering libraries will be integrated into its overall search engine. But it won't run advertising or try to market books when it directs users to the text of the book or to places where users can buy it.”
Do no evil indeed.

Well, helping me at least. Hey PJ, can you find out more about this?

I've been in the precarious position of working at places where I couldn't talk very openly about the products my team is working on or the success our businesses is seeing. Of course this is difficult for a blabbermouth like m but I've learned to control my impulses. When industry data comes out though, there's nothing wrong with proving links for the readership here. And that's just what I'm gonna do here. “iPod” was the most searched-for term on Black Friday according to a few different significant websites. Oh and to quote my favorite line from the above article:
“Offline, the holiday retail story isn’t quite so jolly.”

Two celebrities sit next to each other on a plane:
“Hi, my name is Bond, James Bond.. says one.
The other replies, ”Hi, my name is Damme,
Claude Van Damme,
Jean-Claude Van Damme...“
The last thing the world needs is a faking-pre-pubescance boy band...unless that band is from Iraq. Listen and see what purifying effect an oppressive regime has on the creative spirits of Nadee, Hassa, Shant, Akhlad, and “Art”. Art...riiiiiight.
