I signed up for the Davenetics mailing list a few weeks back, and have really been enjoying it — it’s written by Dave Pell, and it’s just a half-dozen or so links every day to news pieces related to the tech industry. Not bad, not bad at all.

Salon has two good “Mothers Who Think” columns in their recent stack of archives. First is Richard Knows Best, a pretty damn great column about the scheming guy who won Survivor and the disservice the schmuck did to his child by exposing the kid’s past on a national television show.

Heh, that would look great on a resumé! “My early achievements include…”
