I'm writing the gist of this in the future by a few days. I just had a conversation with someone I respected. He equated - because his religion compels him to - homosexuality with child molestation. He steadfastly believes that homosexuality is 100% choice, and is never biological. He's quite firm on that point.
I no longer consider this person someone with whom I wish to speak.
So given that background, I read Anil Dash's piece on being more tolerant, or less of a jerk, with interest.

The Second iWork ’13 Update introduces a lot of nice things.
Hopefully, this indicates that iWork is not languishing as it did for many years.

A friend and I are writing a book. It's called Lowest Score Wins, and it's nearly done. We launched it with an Indiegogo campaign last December.
It's a book written by two people, and as such, we use the word "we" quite often. Yet… there are plenty of parts of the book that can only be told by one of the authors. An "I" segment.
How do you work these into the book?
You're going along saying "we we we we we" (all the way home!) and then suddenly, you want to relate an "I" story. How?

In the next month or two, Dave Wedzik and I plan to begin selling our book, Lowest Score Wins, via the website http://lowestscorewins.com/.
We'll have two products (a paperback and a hardcover), so we want a little store that integrates with PayPal (preferably) to handle sales with shipping to the U.S., Canada, and other countries (probably flat rate to the U.S., flat rate to Canada, and flat rate to "rest of the world"). We may have more than two products if it's simpler to create a "product" for "5 Paperbacks."
We'd also like to create a "member's section" of the site. Members won't need to pay anything (though that may be nice in the future), they'll simply need to enter a secret that we print in the book in order to register an account. Anyone with a registered account can then see the "members-only" content.
What are my options? The main part of the site will be relatively simple. I'm comfortable with WordPress, and we have some themes that will work quite nicely, so I'd like to consider leaning towards WordPress plugins for each of the two functions above.

What a great joke this would have been… if only Tiger and Augusta National had a sense of humor.
Seriously, though, the guy couldn't announce this yesterday?!?!

Initially I was surprised by the ending. After about two minutes, I came to the conclusion agh which I think I'll remain: the ending was perfect.
Though HIMYM suffered from some average seasons (or episodes, at least), it was a great nine-year run and one of my favorite TV series of all time.
And the ending was perfect. Timing matters. Cherish those you can when you can.
