unamiccia Why "Sadly"? (254 comments)

Why can't we celebrate how the Internet continues to resist freighting information with advertising? That's one of its best attributes.

Former WaPo Staffer Rob Pegoraro Talks About Newspapers' Decline (Video)

unamiccia Read All About It in the Video (79 comments)

Ironic that you can't actually read Mr. Pegoraro's comments. Sometime in the last five years or so it became easier to videorecord something than it is to write the same something down. Which may have something to do with the decline of newspapers.

Should Congress Telecommute?

unamiccia Re:Why not? (213 comments)

I wouldn't want Representative Pearce's commute, and his huge district means long travel hours even when back home with his constituents. However, making Congress even less collegial than it's become sounds like a bad idea. There is a world of difference between negotiating on the floor of the House versus a 435-thumbnail Google Hangout. The effectiveness of your political representatives depends on them forming alliances, winning over opponents, remembering the names of their colleagues' kids, and generally treating each other like human beings. These relationships are still stronger when developed face-to-face, and probably always will be. If I disliked my representative's politics, maybe I'd like her to laze around in the district. But I strongly support her, and I'm glad she spends long days in Washington, DC doing the hard work that being effective requires.

Additional Lab To Be Added To the ISS

unamiccia Why Don't They Leave the Shuttles Up There, Too? (81 comments)

I don't get why we're not planning to dock the shuttles to the ISS and leave them up there, too, with their useful engines, robotic arms, and so forth. The space museums would be sad, but someone would undoubtably think up some cool things that could be accomplished with them up there.
