    I’m a miserable, angry pessimist, but this made me smile.

    So nice I watched it twice!

    I think she should have sung the title-text at the end though.

    Also, one of my Captcha words is ‘fezes’. It’s gonna be a great day!

    This actually increased my optimism regarding the future of mankind.

    But whether or not that increase was statistically significant, I’m not sure. I’m still bootstrapping the critical values.

    Oh my god, I hated this. Why? I love xkcd. I love positive messaging for technology and the future. So what was it about this that set my teeth on edge? I don’t know!!

    (I have similar, but not as strong, reactions to This American Life and McSweeney’s. A sense of preciousness? Must think on it more.)

    this is a Good Thing.

    also, @endymion: whaaaaaa? I can usually understand how people feel about things from other viewpoints, but none of that makes sense to me! this american life and mcsweeney’s both kick ass. and so does this xkcd thing.
