Want to spend the rest of your life on Mars? In about ten years, you might be able to.

Here’s a piece about that plan to put people (permanently) on Mars. It could be a fun idea for a science fiction story, but it’s really freaky in real life.

How about that: “America’s tech talent shortage is a myth”. Looks like big tech companies propagated this myth of a “programmer shortage” in America in order to justify passing an immigration bill that would allow them to legally hire foreigners and pay them lower salaries.

A piece that isn’t anti-MBA. How refreshing.

Foreign Policy magazine has two epic articles about Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. I’m posting this for my mom, who I know really likes Lavrov.

Lastly, I finally signed up for Goodreads, so if you’re on there, add me as a friend.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
