-The L.A. Times reports on immigrant labor in an interesting piece.

-President Obama's budget plan apparently isn't universally approved of.

-Good old Willie Nelson broke in the Austin City Limits new venue.

-The developer of the new Austin Marathon app answered some questions.

-It's been a while since Newsgeist first reported on this, but the robot is finally taking on the human in today's match on Jeopardy.
