Social Capital and Rationality

In the first chapter of Sociological Insight, Randall Collins explains that groups and societies are based on reasoning and rational agreements, but also lie upon a non-rational foundation. When faced with a decision, an individual is influenced by certain conditions that make them choose a non-rational path to come to a rational outcome. He also explains that rationality is limited and only appears under certain conditions. Two types of rationality described were functional rationality, consisting of calculating how a result can be achieved most efficiently, and substantive rationality, which considers the ends (Collins 1992 p3-29).

UW Madison 2007 Season Football Tickets become pricey

My father informed me that I received my UW Madison Season Football Tickets in the mail. I checked over on Exchange Hut, UW student's largest ticket exchange website, and found out that a Fall 2007 set of Upperclass Student Season Tickets were recently sold for $550, Yikes! The large price on season tickets are partly due to an e-mail glitch the UW Athletic Department made. Of their entire list of students to send e-mail to, they only sent out an e-mails to 20% of the student body informing students that tickets would go on sale the upcoming week. When tickets went on sale, they sold out in 3 days, and many hardcore fans were never informed that they went on sale. That sucks. So now there are a bunch of students who have season football tickets, but would rather sell them to hardcore fans that really want to be at the game.

Want Your TV Links?

Your Tv Link is another TV Links site. When I went to visit the site though, about 2 seconds after it loaded, a full size pop up ad jumped out at me. I tried to press the skip ad button, but the ad kept reappearing and wouldn't let me load the site. Now, however, Your TV Links has gotten a recent upgrade. Compared to the old site which housed links to pirated content around the web, now the site is in the form of a blog. Your TV Links now posts weird, funny and wacky videos that someone who wants to waste a couple hours of their life can sit and watch the minute long clips to give them a good chuckle.

The Campus Atlas

After 4 month is work, I am ready to unveil my next creation, which is called by the name of "The Campus Atlas". The Campus Atlas is a new website based in the heart of the UW-Madison Campus that delivers UW-Madison College Students useful information about the surrounding campus by listing featured restaurants, and hot links to around campus and the web. Some cool features include Google Web, Local and Video search. Searching the entire amazon product catalog base, searching Madison's Craigslist, and having a wikipedia search. Besides searching the web through Campus Atlas, you can also do Professor Ratings search's from Rate My Professor .com , hot links to around campus and the web, a database of embedded flash games, a news feed reader to many popular Madison newspapers and blogs, and drink specials for bars around Madison. Yes, now you can see why this project has taken me 4 months.

All Online Games – Alluc for Games – allonga org

Alluc.org has been working on some side projects as of lately. Their most recent being "All Online Games" or the hyperlink is Allonga.org which was launched today, Monday September 10th, 2007. From the looks it it, the new All Online Games site is using the same content management software that is used to house all the Alluc links. They are already boasting a database of over 17,000 links, quite impressive, however the main distinction between Alluc.org and Allonga.org is that all the links to Allonga.org are not illegal, and don't ride along the lines of linking to illegal content, but more on the links of linking to poplar games that can be found at legitimate sites.

Free Music on Pandora Internet Radio Station

For the past couple months I have been using the new Pandora Internet Radio Station. Pandora is a free service that streams music to your computer, the kicker, it creates a radio channel based on a specific artist and then plays relevant songs based on that artists style. For example, say you like Eric Clapton. Enter in Eric Clapton and Pandora will instantly start playing music from Eric Clapton's collection and also other music that is similar to Clapton's style. Pretty cool eh? It only gets better.

Holy Schmoley It’s Been A Long Time

Wow, it's been over 2 and half months since I've written a post on this website. I've been pretty busy with school, and one of my websites started getting an enormous amount of traffic, so I've been trying to keep that site updated. I also tried to do some updates to the administration panel for this blog and during construction I got sidetracked and let the admin panel in limbo, but I have it fixed now, no worries!.

Free Laptop Nation, another scam?

I was listening to the radio on the way to the grocery store this past weekend and heard another amazing commercial telling me that I can get a free laptop by going to the website: Free Laptop Nation! I was like, no way, there going to just give me a free laptop? I wrote a blog post about a sister site of free laptop nation called, I want My Free Laptop .com. That post has been blowing up with people wondering if the site is really a scam or not, the post has over 36 posts, most from people saying they are poor or in college and really want their free laptop that these commercials are offering.
