Spam promises result more alarming than hypertension: "weird food killed my dad's high blood pressure."

DC United to build soccer stadium at wonderfully named Buzzard Point adjacent to Ft. McNair. I've long felt the point is ripe 4 development

Introducing my daughter to "Fawlty Towers." No need to explain. Any episode is a good introduction. Start laughing. Don't stop laughing.

"Self-driving cars could create 1GB data a second" (http://ow.ly/ng9j8 ) JK--The Internet of Things will be driven by #BigData on wheels

I'm a shoeshine boy of the technocratic elite. I'm also a drum major for truth, justice, and the American way of doing #bigdata analytics.
