  • Today's comic is YOU are a computer criminal! by Ruben Bolling:
    Comic - YOU are a computer criminal!
  • Hot science talk:
    Neuroinformaticians from Radboud University Nijmegen provide a mathematical model for efficient communication in relationships. Love affair dynamics can look like a sinus wave: a smooth repetitive oscillation of highs and lows.
  • Do you have a green thumb and a willingness to walk on the not-entirely-legal side? Here's a job for you:
    Wanted: A green thumb with extensive knowledge of the black, or at least gray, market.

    As Washington state tries to figure out how to regulate its newly legal marijuana, officials are hiring an adviser on all things weed: how it's best grown, dried, tested, labeled, packaged and cooked into brownies.

  • Have you seen this mouse?
  • Aw. Sad:
    George Zimmerman is running out of money to pay for his legal defense, his lawyers say on a website set up to solicit donations.
  • Uh ... what?
    Montana State Rep. Jerry O’Neil (R) is sponsoring a bill to allow defendants to “bargain with the court” to receive “corporal punishment in lieu of incarceration.”
  • I'm no camper, but I'm pretty sure manly man camping does not involve craft cocktails:
    The Wilderness Collective is a company that specializes in curating artisanal manliness by coordinating expeditions that invite robust young gentlebros "to find out what [they] are made of; to be measured by the wilderness." For $2,500 ($3,500 with bike rental), you can "reclaim masculinity through adventure." Included in the cost is a videographer on-hand to record the masculine rebirth for sick Facebook videos. [...]

    And once camp is broken, out come the "craft cocktails and artisan food."

    We were dead tired but our headlights guided the way through these twists and turns all the way through to this second camp. and when we showed up the craft cocktails and the Artisan food and there were such welcome friends under this endless starry sky.
  • Eleanor Roosevelt's love letters are breathtakingly beautiful.
  • On today's Kagro in the Morning show, we had Greg Dworkin on yesterday's Senate hearing and Newtown's town hall, plus the "controversy" over whether or not 12/14 parents were heckled. The crazy stories keep pouring in, too. Did you know dropping your gun in the bathroom is the new hotness? Also: state nullification of federal gun laws, and how to build better gun policy. Then, spending cuts vs. growth, and the looming sequestration.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
