I went to an open house for web design graduates from the Art Institute of LA and found it to be really helpful to be able to meet with recent grads and have them show me their work. I wish all different types of schools (business, engineering, programming, etc) would do something similar. It would really help employers.
I saw an interesting article today in the newspaper that banks have greatly slowed the foreclosure process.
I actually think it is their business strategy going forward- if they foreclosed immediately on everyone who deserved it it would flood the market with homes. The massive increase in supply would knock home prices down even further, causing many more people to strategically default on their mortgages. The banks would be forced to write off even more mortgages, perhaps forcing the banks themselves into bankruptcy.
So what does the banks slowing of the foreclosure process mean to the rest of us? The housing market is still in a bubble and has a long way further to fall.

In yet another instance of scummy activity by public employees, the executives in charge of CalPers recently ordered all emails over 60 days deleted. There are multiple investigations into their activity now and they have decided to destroy the evidence.
