Just Who is Affirmative Action Helping?
I just came across a post that really struck a chord with me. Here’s a snippet: “You have to look under the surface,” my young friend cautioned. “Many students are black, it’s true. But where did they really come from? Are these the descendents of slavery? Are these students, like me, who couldn’t afford to… Continue reading Just Who is Affirmative Action Helping?
Google’s Pretty Shrewd
Google’s starting to remind me of the megalomaniac Brain, from Pinky and the Brain. They’re recently made a new push into the advertising game with their AdSense program: Google AdSense is for web publishers who want to make more revenue from advertising on their site while maintaining editorial quality.

The RIAA Will Track You Down
Here’s how the RIAA plans to track filesharers. I wonder how long it will take someone to come up with a way to mask IP addresses from Kazaa? 10 minutes? ( There’s no stopping what can’t be stopped. No killing what can’t be killed.)
The Fallacy of Race
I’ve recently come across a few articles related to the PBS series Race – The Power of an Illusion (there’s a wealth of information on that site). I wrote a bit about that powerful documentary over on my Trader Mike blog. I thought I’d highlight it again over here. That documentary should be required viewing… Continue reading The Fallacy of Race

Treo 600 Review
PC Magazine has a full review of the Treo 600. Like I stated before, this looks like the best ‘smart phone’ made so far. I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
