As a followup to my previous post on Google employee campaign contributions, I found a bug in my scraping script, and reran the data with the most recent FEC data (this is accurate as of scraping beta.fec.gov five minutes ago).

  • LIBERTARIAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE, INC.: $27,860
  • DCCC: $34,108
  • DSCC: $36,220
  • NRSC: $38,400
  • RO FOR CONGRESS INC.: $41,900
  • AMERICANS FOR RESPONSIBLE SOLUTIONS-PAC: $52,450
  • FRIENDS OF SCHUMER: $65,300
  • BERNIE 2016: $153,157
  • HILLARY FOR AMERICA: $249,957
  • GOOGLE INC. NETPAC: $604,671

I was playing around with the new https://beta.fec.gov and found that it was pretty easy to get a bunch of data about who is donating to what.

Wired is doing some great stuff with Star Wars right now. Chris Hardwick's editorial is hilarious. Cartoon Network's Toonami did the same thing for me as Star Wars did for him. Also, the lego photos are a work of art, albeit I had seen them before.

I was reading Projects and Companies by @sama, and I really liked his thoughts on how what you call a thing defines often how you interact with it. I'm not sure how true it is, but it's an interesting thought.
