i couldn’t help but chuckle after reading this and staring at the irony smack in the middle of the article (source: msnbc):

In a rare occurrence, the CIA fired an officer who acknowledged giving classified information to a reporter, NBC News learned Friday.

and where’s the irony you ask…well if you read further…

Sources said the CIA believes McCarthy had more than a dozen unauthorized contacts with Priest. Information about subjects other than the prisons may have been leaked as well.

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the firing.

yep, that’s right, notice the bold part…lmao.

i’ve noticed a design trend along “web 2.0” sites…














notice all the ‘choices’ in-your-face design.  not that there’s anything wrong with that.  just an observation.  i think like anything in the world, people see good things and they emulate them.  this is no different when people see good, simple, ui designs and emulate them as well.
