mikehudack: aatombomb: First Newsweek, now this. What’s up, Atlantic? You better get on the ball. I’d like to thank The New Yorker for reblogging me (via a Newsweek reblog!). You guys are awesome!

“Energy In Common: It’s like Kiva, but Greener”: http://bit.ly/bCBASe Wanna see more like this. Maybe the industry needs to mature more.
Weight classes in prisons to slow down the rates of prisoner-on-prisoner rape? http://bit.ly/cHYuOZ Sounds pretty good to me.
Read these, in this order. Love this type of talk: http://bit.ly/8X9uDG, http://bit.ly/9yBFlf, http://bit.ly/aWcPFW (via @ezraklein @cdixon) I very clearly remember going to my Goldman Sachs interview, winter of Junior year, and thinking to myself, wow I could not have less interest in investment banking if I tried.

On Spirit for iPhone
On Friday I spent a couple of hours going through some arduous and eventually ineffectual sets of instructions for tethering the iPhone to a laptop. Today I discovered that there is an automatic tool called Spirit, which was just released within the week. I hereby share it with other iPhone users who want to jailbreak. Find it here.
