A more useful homework assignment would be to have these future taxpayers calculate how much their moms and dads are spending to prop up Obama's green jobs industry and its elite Democratic campaign finance donors/investors. The White House projected 65,000 new jobs from nearly $40 billion in green job stimulus spending. Instead, fewer than 3,600 jobs were created. Get out your calculators, kids: That's $4.85 million per job.

Data is an invaluable tool for web designers who are making decisions about the user experience.
A/B tests, or split tests, are one of the easiest ways to measure the effect of different design, content, or functionality.

Making up Stories: Perception, Language, and the Web

We learn and retain information best through stories, because they turn information into more than the sum of its parts. But what makes a story a story, and what does it mean for the digital world we've built?
