Gross Income (Live from Nerdmelt)

A very special 100th episode of We Have Concerns, recorded in front of a live audience at the Nerdmelt Showroom in Los Angeles!  Anthony and Jeff discuss the potential to sell your feces to science for use in treating patients with C diff.  Donors can earn up to $13,000 per year for their excrement, but the standards are quite high for what constitutes sellable poop.

Special thanks to Christian Spicer and Punchclub Sketch Comedy for inviting We Have Concerns to be a part of this live event, and Ryan Kolak for recording video.

A new web service will provide baby name suggestions only for combinations that are still available as unregistered .coms, helping parents ensure their child will not have to grow up with a messy, misspelled or complex digital profile.  Do Anthony and Jeff think this is a good way to select names?  Should people start protecting their children's brand from birth?  Is there any way to stop the use of the term "branding?"

Garbage In, Nothing Out

Jeff and Anthony take a look at an article which suggests the more we consume, the less we create.  Would keeping track of all the time spent screwing around on the Internet change your behavior?  Do you need to absorb media to to be creative, or does bombarding yourself with stimuli reduce your productivity?
