It was very funny the other day overhearing that NY1 has an $8 weather budget. Forecasters are often given a bad wrap for misrepresenting what's actually happening in the sky. They certainly don't enjoy being wrong, but alas it ends up happening anyway. Want to know what you need to wear? Try sticking your hand out the window and feel the air. Carry an umbrella if you're uncertain, and try some other sources. I have been a big fan of and has recently become a favorite. NOAA is a little less commercial. I would recommend a glance at them if you're curious.

On a more tangible note, I have been getting a lot of great insight from DemocracyNow!'s podcast. Yesterday's broadcast had yet more information about the power of blogging and vlogging. They were broadcasting from Stamford in Palo Alto, California because of the NetSquared Conference. Looking over their site, she's also going to be a speaker. There was a good dialogue going back and forth about citizen journalists cropping up worldwide through the likes of and bloggers exposing oppression the world over. There were notables instance of political imprisonment of Egyptian and Chinese bloggers for expressing opinions incongruous with the country's line. While it's possible this post may show up in a random search I'm glad to have the right to express myself as I desire (as yet, I have published little that would be read as offensive)...
