The only thing that is certain is uncertainty!


“Are you ready for your senses to be hacked? Technology is changing the way we interpret and interact with our surroundings. This is happening at a faster pace than our culture can address its proper role within society.”//transensing

“Rapid-fire TV news bulletins or getting updates via social-networking tools such as Twitter could numb our sense of morality and make us indifferent to human suffering, scientists say.”//CNN


“The Harris Poll, however, revealed that half of Americans (51%) do not use Twitter or have a MySpace or facebook account. Just under half (48%) of adults have either a MySpace or Facebook page with 16% of adults updating their page at least once a day. Only 5% of Americans are currently using Twitter.”//BlogHerald


“According to a recent study by computer security firm McAfee, the amount of spam emails sent last year (62 trillion) created the same amount of carbon emissions as 2 billion gallons of petrol burnt in a car engine. Overall, the amount of energy expended in the creation, transmission and processing of spam for last year is equivalent to the energy usage of more than 2 million typical homes.”//io9

The Zeusaphone is a high-performance solid state Tesla coil that can actually play music through its high voltage electrical discharges.

“The World Bank’s pathbreaking “Where is the Wealth of Nations?” convincingly demonstrates that the “mainsprings of development” are the rule of law and a good school system. The big question that its researchers don’t answer is: How can the people of the developing world rid themselves of the kleptocrats who loot their countries and keep them poor?”//reason

“Pirates were the first people to rebel against this world. They mutinied – and created a different way of working on the seas. Once they had a ship, the pirates elected their captains, and made all their decisions collectively, without torture. They shared their bounty out in what Rediker calls “one of the most egalitarian plans for the disposition of resources to be found anywhere in the eighteenth century”.

They even took in escaped African slaves and lived with them as equals. The pirates showed “quite clearly – and subversively – that ships did not have to be run in the brutal and oppressive ways of the merchant service and the Royal Navy.” This is why they were romantic heroes, despite being unproductive thieves.”///Johann Hari:::the independent

“The judge ruled that despite the fact that the Pirate Bay does not host the copyrighted materials, that it nevertheless assists in the distribution of illegal content.”//guardian


“Freetards may look like a bunch of hippies from the outside but the root of their ideology looks is closer to Bukaninst anarchy – destroy everything in its current form and then do – um – something else (TBA).  The hippy angle that everything should be free is patently unsustainable and merely serves to hasten the destruction which they seek.  None of this self-serving bunch of tossers (hippies, freetards or Nazis) has ever managed a coherent statement on a viable alternative to that which they attack.”//theregister

“It is based on a game structure that nurtures make-belief and collective creativity: the whole community of performers and audience discuss as if the performers just had presented a performance, and as if the audience had seen it. This discussion allows them to invent the performance together.”//ausland-berlin

“Indeed, what we see in Germany today is the triumph of market forces over philosophy.”//SFS
