Hi! I’m Devin and I work at Mozilla. I’m sensibly impulsive, consistently non-committal, and passionately impartial.

4/20 at CU

I love my school and the police that protect us from… ourselves. Smoking pot is a lesser crime than littering, yet they’ll dedicate these resources to catching a few teens? Last year the only person given a citation was a kid who set up a snack stand to sell chips. He didn’t have a vendor permit…

GM Chief Apologizes to Holders
GM’s CEO apologized to shareholders for a series of accounting errors.
Oh, in that case, GM, don’t worry about it. Thanks for the apology! Because that what helps companies survive right? Apologies?

Songbirds May Be Able to Learn Grammar
The simplest grammar, long thought to be one of the skills that separate man from beast, can be taught to a common songbird, new research suggests.I’m having way too much fun with this whole “blog” thing.

Funny City Names

At work I found some fun city names. I figured I should keep a list of some of the better ones:

MySpace Deodorant

As a follow up to this post (and this article) my brother has created, by far, the best MySpace profile out there (http://www.myspace.com/deoderizer). I hope ‘Right’ starts sending me ads and coupons soon! Maybe he’ll even fill out my ‘ten things’ bulletin!

Carnival of Marketing

Bob Pritchett (Fire Someone Today) is hosting this week’s Carnival of Marketing, check it out.

MySpace to Advertise?

Interesting article on how MySpace is thinking about… gasp… making money through advertising. Good thought! Their revolutionary thinking has essentially taken what Facebook has already done… and made it uglier… probably with music playing in the background: “To expand ad sales … [MySpace] plans to [turn] advertisers into members of the MySpace community, with their own profiles, like the teenagers’ ? so that the young people who often spend hours each day on MySpace can become “friends” with movies, cellphone companies and even deodorants. Young people can link to the profiles set up for these goods and services, as they would to real friends, and these commercial “friends” can even send them messages ? ads, really….” Yeah, that’ll fly. “I can’t wait to add my deodorant to my friend list!” Jackasses.

Studying Follow-Up

I nearly forgot I had written about my secrets to exam success: Studying for Tests. If you initially doubted me, that’s fine, I would be hesitant too. Let me assure you I received very high A’s on both accounting tests the second time around. As mentioned, take the first test and set the pace for the rest of the semester… do yourself a favor and focus on all those other important things during your extra time. That’s what I do!

claimID Invitations

The first two people to use this link will be able to register a claimID beta account. It’s sorta dumb but sorta useful. I’ll play with it a bit more. At first glance, it does little more than my About page.. but I realize not everyone out there has an About page.

Bloggers Remorse Squared

I have this weird feeling about blogging. I’ll write about topics but then I take a look at my visitors… many are here for the wrong reasons. I get 10 kids every day asking for MSN invites, I have another 20 Googleing myspace error messages and finding me. The rest are all here to take my free FIRO-B test.
