The Last Airbender up for nine Razzies

re: Cameron's Avatar

I also paid to go see it (in 3d) but can't even really comment on how bad it was as I had to walk out due to suffering from a crippling headache, which I understand many others suffered also...

thanks Ian

it wasn't clear to me whether the 4th amendment protection also applied in civil cases.

Does anyone know what the effect of this decision will be on e-discovery rules and the ability of organisations to perform ESI related investigations in general?

Minor annoyance

Can the tick boxes for "remember me" and "post anonymously" clear when de-selected as opposed to changing colour?

the Dutch

Why do you guys imagine that the Dutch would NOT have any interest in these materials? We regularly spy on all our so called allies and they spy on us. Of course all parties vehemently deny this.

reasons for leaving

With respect to "alongside the politicos resignation favourite of wanting to spend more time with his family" - when was the last time anyone saw a really honest reason given out for a senior exec leaving?

agency aversion

As someone on the hiring side of this equation, after binning the N,000th rubbish CV which was obviously trawled up after a very simplistic keyword matching exercise, I've finally and completely given up on agencies. We only accept direct applications and bear the burden of all forms of candidate suitability checking ourselves. I wish we'd done this ages ago - oh well, you live and learn.

AC where would you go?

Assuming one is able to hurdle the fence, where is the democratic grass any greener? I'm struggling to find a country where democracy isn't a farce as you describe above.

Skewing statistics: Booze, money and sex

vision?

So the government are a bunch of lying sacks who abuse statistics to their own end - so what Tim? We all know this and we're all sitting around bemoaning the fact. The most interesting piece of this article was your suggestion that there should be a "none of the above" box built in to the election ballot. That at least takes us into a different landscape. Spend some time thinking about what that would actually look like and write that next time. Provide some kind of compelling vision of the way it could be and I'll read for sure. This scrawling "the government sucks" in the dirt isn't worth your time or mine.
