Matt Taibbi on how the student loans bubble became the worst example of government-corporation collusion for a long time and how it threatens to burst and bring down the economy in a worse way than the sub prime collapse.

Lean Domain Search

A very basic but useful tool to search for .com domain names. Takes a word you want to include and looks for combinations with other common words that are free. Once you’ve found a great domain register it with hover.com – they’re a much better registrar than most and won’t try and sell you a whole host of things you don’t need.
