Still not sure what I wanna be when I grow up

Depending on how you count, in a year or two I will have been an impresario longer than I was a hacker.

So what should I do in Season Three?

iOS 6 ad-tracking opt-out

It's plainly posted, right behind the sign that says "Beware of the Leopard Mountain Lion":

Settings → General → About → Advertising → Limit Ad Tracking → On

It's far from clear what, if anything, this actually accomplishes, but it's a thing that exists.

Update: Oh, hey, here's another:

Settings → Privacy → Location Services → System Services → Location-based iAds → Off

This is a level of obscurity worthy of Facebook. Well played, Apple.

Why isn't DPT crowdsourced?

I wish I could just take a picture of the license plate of cars parked in the bike lane or otherwise engaged in obvious jackassery, MMS it to DPT, and cause a ticket to be issued. All the information is there: timestamp, GPS, photo. It could work just the same as red-light cameras.

Someone please make this happen.

I'm coming for you, UPS.

You have a nice day too, Sir

As the guy swung his door wide into the bike lane and I swerved around it and yelled "HEY!", can you guess what the guy's retort was?

That's right:

"Fuck you!"

DNA Lounge: Wherein we engage in some archæology.

Devon just found this under the stage: A Technics SL-P 1300 DJ CD player, manufactured in 1990.

I thought dinosaurs were extinct!
