I was curious what was going on in the Ukraine, so I stupidly opened cnn.com. Let is BBC news, right is cnn.com
This site, man.
Are people really this fucking dumb? I see this nonsense daily, and it happens with more regularity as the days progress. I’m sick of people feeling oppressed and then believing that it’s okay to fight that with their own prejudices.
Sick of all these fucking labels that do nothing but divide people even further. You aren’t some social crusader. You’re part of the problem.
And the sad thing is that you think you’re part of the solution.
i think I’m gonna be sick.
this is rly disgusting
I’m physically ill.
I think it might be time for a plague or zombie apocalypse so these “activists” can finally discover real suffering.
And to the person with the Auschwitz comment: you are either the world’s largest troll, or the worst person in the world.
I’m sure someone will get mad at me for this… but I’m pondering that the moment an allegation of rape comes out against any athlete there are immediately condemned as guilty by a vast majority of feminists* and all you read about is “rape culture”. Yet when allegations come out against Woody Allen or even worse, when allegations are proven to be true against an abhorrent person like Roman Polanski those two are defended and their work continues to be celebrated?
*yes I’m saying a vast majority of people without any factual standing. But after reading the comments here at gawker and reading elsewhere about celebrities defending Allen, I’m jumping to conclusions.
EVERY STORY HAS A NAME
FiftyThree’s story began with Paper. What began with three guys building an app out of a New York City apartment has gone on to become one of the most celebrated applications on iOS, defining mobile creativity and winning Apple’s 2012 iPad App of the Year. Paper embodied our belief that technology should support the human need to create. It’s a beautifully simple app that lets anyone capture their ideas and share them over the web. For millions of creators around the world, Paper is where they call home for their ideas—100 million, in fact, over the last two years. Paper has come to represent endless creative potential, and we couldn’t have asked for a better beginning to our story.
Stories have twists.
So it came as a surprise when we learned on January 30th with everyone else that Facebook was announcing an app with the same name—Paper. Not only were we confused but so were our customers (twitter) and press (1,2,3,4). Was this the same Paper? Nope. Had FiftyThree been acquired? Definitely not. Then, what’s going on?
We reached out to Facebook about the confusion their app was creating, and they apologized for not contacting us sooner. But an earnest apology should come with a remedy.
Stories reveal character.
There’s a simple fix here. We think Facebook can apply the same degree of thought they put into the app into building a brand name of their own. An app about stories shouldn’t start with someone else’s story. Facebook should stop using our brand name.
On a personal level we have many ties to Facebook. Many friends, former students and colleagues are doing good work at Facebook. One of Facebook’s board members is an investor in FiftyThree. We’re a Facebook developer, and Paper supports sharing to Facebook where close to 500,000 original pages have been shared. Connections run deep.
What will Facebook’s story be? Will they be the corporate giant who bullies their developers? Or be agile, recognize a mistake, and fix it? Is it “Move fast and break things” or “Move fast and make things”?
We’re all storytellers. And we show care for each other by caring for our stories. Thanks for supporting us.

Spread the word Human Beings :)
Earlier today, I saw new advertisements on TV for Apple’s iPad Air and Scientology. Since they were already so similar, I decided to chop up the visuals of the Apple ad with the audio of the Scientology ad. The result is above. I think it works pretty well. Personally, I find it inspiring.
And remember kids, there are higher states of existence.
How I’ve felt all day after a good workout yesterday
Your Missouri Tigers are the 2014 Cotton Bowl champions! To celebrate, here’s an awesome video of Gary Pinkel after Friday’s win.
I have watched this about 15 times today
Does anyone know how to prevent Photoshop from hiding property windows or panels when you Cmd+Tab away? Or switch apps via the dock? So annoying when I’m using the information from photoshop in code.
