Re: Small Won (Mark Schmitt & Brink Lindsey)

I wish BHTV would investigate technology that would display the percent of time each 'head' is taking during these dioblogs. Brink would have been embarrased had there been such a thing. 50-50 isn't...

Re: Science Saturday: Climate Chaos (Jamais Cascio & Mike Treder)
