Is it time for the internet plus one?

A question that is rolling around in my head:

Weight loss practice

Let's see how disciplined I actually can be.

I am one overweight fellow.
I need to fix that.
Today I weighed in at 300.0 pounds

This is actually an improvement over my all time peak of 315.

Target weight is 195.
Weekly goal is 2 lbs loss per week.

Daily weigh ins start now.

The foreseeable challenge is when life happens and I get knocked off rhythm. Getting back into pattern always defeats me up to now.

Well that blew up

Lost my post for the third and the partial for the fourth. Time to regroup and create something that is not so susceptible to fat finger errors.

RCP 2012.01.02 review

This is a daily report I'm starting up in order to find and create Citizen Intelligence government oversight widgets by simply taking the meat of what's already getting written and putting it into a form that a computer can automatically update a widget automatically and inexpensively. Articles that have no potential widgets are labeled as no substance because, for my purposes, there's nothing usable there.

I have a conversation on Quora where the person I was talking to deleted a comment and is now claiming that they did not. Here's the relevant screen shot just so it can be preserved at an url that she can't get rid of.
