Rejected New Submission

Baja Cantina
Google Maps Location: 7166 Carmel Valley Road, Carmel, CA
36.534055, -121.850530

Baja Cantina has been a local gathering spot for decades.  It is completely unique in it's character and decor.  There are more car and movie related memoribilia than most auto related museums would carry.  There is more to see here than at most portals plus the food is great!

There are also minimal portals in this area.

Microsoft, Google, Facebook and now Yahoo have distanced themselves from ALEC.  Amazing what some public pressure will do.
Another tech giant is parting ways with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Yahoo's withdrawal from the group was confirmed in a statement to Common Cause late Wednesday. "We've decided to discontinue our membership in ALEC. ...

Excellent article by +vivek wadhwa on solar energy and abundance. 

However I think he misses the mark slightly.  "By 2020, solar energy will be price-competitive with energy generated from fossil fuels on an unsubsidized basis in most parts of the world.  Within the next decade, it will cost a fraction of what fossil fuel-based alternatives do." 

I know in many if not most "3rd" world countries solar is already less expensive then current fossil fuel energy costs.  In fact in many regions of Central America solar is almost 20% - 30% less on a cost per watt basis than traditional grid tied energy sources.  Many of these existing sources of energy are diesel type generation so the carbon cost is also considerably less.
The incredible drop in the price of solar energy will shake up our world.

+Bill Shevlin Sorry, just a riff on the many and varied visions of Paradise.

As far as I've been able to tell, the promise of "unlimited energy" is just as empty and potentially toxic as promised rewards in an afterlife.

Not to say anything against renewable energy -- we need to do as much of it as we can. It's just that we need also to control our expectations about it, understand that no way will we be able to keep the party going once the fossil fuel era closes.

Thanks +Garrett Markle for the post. Someday I could see pirate Internet just like there used to be pirate radio.
 
Google Requests FCC Permission to Test Wireless Internet
Google wants to experiment with internet delivery via its Titan drones. Last week, Google requested FCC permission to use two blocks of frequencies for a 6-month test period over New Mexico east of Albuquerque.

Always better to let go of hatred.
 
It's okay to be angry. But sometimes you have to let hatred go or else it'll eat at you from the inside. This +TED  talk from Zak Ebrahim explains why, and how you're better off without it.

Good for Google they finally dumped ALEC for their climate change denial. Surprised it took so long.
 
ETOM Quote of the Day:
"The company (Google) has a very strong view that we should make decisions in politics based on facts — what a shock. And the facts of climate change are not in question anymore. Everyone understands climate change is occurring and the people who oppose it are really hurting our children and our grandchildren and making the world a much worse place. And so we should not be aligned with such people — they're just literally lying."
- Eric Schmidt, executive chairman at Google, commenting on Google leaving ALEC
