Gallows Humor Quote of the Day

leave a comment »

Much of what WikiLeaks has uncovered is enormously unsettling, but I just laughed out loud when I read this quote from a NYT profile of WikiLeaks head Julian Assange:

“When it comes to the point where you occasionally look forward to being in prison on the basis that you might be able to spend a day reading a book, the realization dawns that perhaps the situation has become a little more stressful than you would like.”

It’s a bit of welcome gallows humor in the midst of a story of two stupid wars that should be making us all angrier by the day.

Return to Boing Boing: Week One

leave a comment »

My return stint at BoingBoing is now half over. Here’s what I wrote about this week:

Skit Ideas Not Even Good Enough for Saturday Night Live

Greatest Song of All Time of the Day: “Blue Monday,” New Order

Curating a TEDx (or, From Arrogance to Humility)

Too Much Darkness?

Mr. T: Gold Salesman. Supposedly Legitimate Financial TV Network

Yeah, I know, not a lot compared to last time. But I’ll have plenty more next week. In particular, I’m curious what BoingBoing readers will make of my day job.
