Great read on the NSA issues from a time long before Snowden: "The NSA and Me" by James Bamford
James Bamford literally wrote the book on the National Security Agency, spending 30 years obsessively documenting the secretive agency in print. Today, for the first time, he tells the story of his brief turn as an NSA whistleblower.

Finally a wearable that makes sense. The moto 360 is a smartwatch that features a circular display and actually looks good. And it has all the features you'd expect from such a device...

Introduction
Founded Altova GmbH in 1992; member of the W3C XML Schema WG that defined the XML Schema 1.0 specs; co-creator of the popular Altova XMLSpy tool suite for all things XML; President & CEO of Altova, Inc. Having been involved in XML from the beginning in 1998, I'm a true XML aficionado and am always interested in new technologies, trends, and innovative uses of XML. My love for technology is not restricted to just XML, however, and I'm especially passionate about creating great developer tools that improve the overall software development cycle in many different aspects. Oh, and I do love gadgets, too...

The new menu includes local and super-fresh fare, and you can now either get a reservation on the restaurant side or just drop in on the bar side and sit in the lounge. A new addition to the menu is the raw bar that includes fresh oysters, as well as a hugely increased wine list. You will want to make your reservations soon, because this is (again) the hottest place in Marblehead (and surrounding towns)...
