young man at job interview

Life is all about change and, for those who haven’t noticed, today’s career is less about the employer than the individual’s marketable skills. Recent graduates looking for "security" or "permanence" are unlikely to find these things in today’s economy on any continent. Perhaps our grandfathers took jobs at one company out of high school and [...]

solar energy panels

For those of you that keep tabs on my articles, you've probably noticed quite a few talking about solar energy. I'm excited about it... it's going to be a bright future, so to speak, and though this future affects everyone, today I'm going to zero in on Australia a bit. Few people question the wide [...]

withdrawing cash money

Ah, credit cards... one of my favorite topics. I love writing about them, because they're an endless source of material. You see, even in our supposedly educated society, people are absolute idiots when it comes to using them. I've written about this at length on numerous occasions, but then I'll read another ridiculous story and [...]

textsecure private messenger

As much as I hate to admit it, I'm guessing you don't really give a shit about privacy, or at least the privacy of your text messages. I think it's fair to assume that you won't be marching or protesting any time soon. Even after the leaks, revelations, whatever you want to call them, nothing [...]

TrackMeNot – A Browser Addon to Confuse Search Engine Tracking Thumbnail

I'm going to tell you a little secret: I hate advertising. Given that banner advertising pays for the roof over my head, and the dinner on my table, you may find that surprising - but it's true. I run adblock on almost every site I visit - save for a few that I really and [...]

world view experience

I think it's safe to say that we have all day dreamed about going into space at some point in our life and letting our imagination run wild with our crazy thoughts. Ever since I was a teenager and I found out about the capabilities of the Russian Mig-25 fighter jet, I wanted to fly [...]
