Because I meant to post these on Friday but ran out of time...
- The governor of Washington state is going to sign the marriage equality bill today! Woohoo!
- Loooong article on how Wall Street bankers are no longer "masters of the universe" because of, among other things, the Dodd-Frank legislation. Bonuses are way down, etc. This seems like a good thing, not least of which is the quote:
“If you’re a smart Ph.D. from MIT, you’d never go to Wall Street now,” says a hedge-fund executive. “You’d go to Silicon Valley. There’s at least a prospect for a huge gain. You’d have the potential to be the next Mark Zuckerberg. It looks like he has a lot more fun.”Fun aside, I think Silicon Valley creates a lot more value for the economy than bankers do.
