Shameless Self-promotion Sunday #6

Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 14 years ago, in 2008, on the World Wide Web.

O.K., so, what did you all write about this week? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments.

    I got sidelined by a Business Week article that I read last week, and what began as a single post on debt collection practices spawned a series of posts on the other pseudo-scams that credit card issuers use to keep people in debt. It’s a little off-topic for me, but I’ve enjoyed describing the horrors of the penalty rate scam.

    This was a busy week for me, so I only got one, somewhat superficial post in. It’s basically just a link to The Story of Stuff with a couple of my own comments on it. However, this week or next I hope to start a monthly book review. Also, I think this “Shameless Self Promotion” thing is such a good idea that I’d like to start my own – on Wednesdays so as not to compete with this site. I certainly appreciate the opportunity to tell people about my work – thanks.

    It wasn’t actually this week, but I haven’t been writing much lately, and every police/law-enforcement abuse like this one infuriates me, so I’ll post the link here.

    I simply offered my commentary on a story I read on Radley Balko’s blog, theagitator.com, about the abuses and lack of accountability that characterize the War on Drugs: Gonzalo Guizan: another death by drug war
