  • This week we will investigate what tools wearing khakis and button-downs call “the business world” (as if a world free of enterprise exists) by analyzing some basic entry-level jobs and their descriptions. This is Part 1 in a series.

    PART 1: Why intelligent people can’t get work

    Humanity has lost its faith in humanity.

    The signs are everywhere: Posters in bathrooms telling us how to properly wash our hands. Frozen meat packaging instructing us on how to thaw it. Our mother’s constant (and not-so-subtle) reminders that sex can lead to pregnancy – even when she knows you lost your virginity 10 years ago. It’s obvious that mankind has lost faith in the mental capacity of its peers.

  • Technology has fueled a revolution in the way we communicate and stay in touch with those we care about. In work and play, technology is there to capture the moments and bridge the gaps of time and space.

  • The Goal: Your current blog at abc.blogspot.com is hosted on the Blogger platform but you now want to move this blog from Blogger to WordPress (self-hosted) with a personal domain name (say abc.com).

    The Problem: WordPress.org provides an easy option to automatically import all your old blog posts and reader comments from Blogger into your new WordPress blog but there are still some bigger problems that are hard to ignore:

    1. Some of your previous articles on the blogspot blog could be ranking very high in search engines for certain keywords but once you shift these articles to a new address, you might lose all that organic search traffic.

    2. You cannot use a 301 redirect with Blogger to inform search engines that your site has permanently moved a new web address thus losing PageRank and other Google Juice.

    However if you are feeling a little more adventurous and want to develop your own Facebook App that works the way you want* and doesn’t carry any third-party branding or advertising, here’s a an easy tutorial to help you get started.
