Villainous Company: Quote of the Day
What we have here are members of two very different self-selected tribes, which we might call (a)the tribe of the challengers, as its members believe that people grow by facing difficult situations–including situations in which success is not guaranteed, and (b)the tribe of the brittle, as members of this tribe tend to implicitly or explicitly believe that people are so fragile that they must be protected from setbacks that might threaten their self-esteem. And, thinking about this story, it struck me that membership in these tribes very much cuts across the usual demographic categories of race, ethnicity, income, and sex. ... market research, surveys and trends

EMERGING MARKETS-Latam currencies rise on yuan move, pare gains
SAO PAULO/MEXICO CITY, June 21 (Reuters) - Latin American currencies rose sharply on Monday after a move by China to ease control of its exchange rate but gave up gains as doubts about the strength of the world economy kept investors cautious.

If you agree with me that their explanation is bogus, please post some links and a persuasive argument supporting "our" position. I fail to see how this is not a blatant violation of the SEC's NBBO rules, since whoever sold at $2.65 was clearly ripped off. I missed the opportunity of buying the stock at a low price, as the stock has since rallied 50% from my buy point. -- begin explanation -- I am a supervisor in ...
Fair Market Value for a Custom iPhone App? | Ask MetaFilter
I've been asked to do an iPhone app for a local business. I'm capable technically, but I have no idea what the market rate for this kind of thing is. If you've done this/had this done for you, or know of someone in either position, what is a fair price tag? It's a reasonably basic app, no OpenGL or anything crazy. It really, really varies. We've spent between $1,200 and $50,000 (and counting!) to develop apps. I think you need to speak to other developers and find out how they charge (per hour? by complexity? flat rate with deadline? retainer?) rather than asking the people who pay for such development ...
