So, anyone here an Ingress player? Anyone here play for the Enlightened? Want to make appropriate circles so that I don't spam everyone else with my nefarious deeds....

Singapore is testing whether mass surveillance and big data can not only protect national security, but actually engineer a more harmonious society.

This far too, far too late. This moronic policy has made your social network irrelevant because many of us did exactly what +Eric Schmidt suggested and selected a different social network for our primary use.

This is a damned shame, because the the Plus team designed a much superior platform from a technological standpoint. All of the advantages were squandered due to autocratic decision making and a frigid support service.

I realize one of the decision makers who responsible for this boondoggle, +Vic Gundotra, has already left the company. I urge Mr. Schmidt to resign for failing Google by preventing this from happening, and I hope the stockholders will remove him from his position for this latest blunder.

This mess has caused many to view Google as an enemy, and it will be a Herculean task to repair this damage; I suspect it will be impossible.

I expect you will, instead continue to Be as Evil as what remains of your user base will allow you to do. I challenge you to prove me wrong. #nymwars   #incompetence   #beingevil   #privacyconcerns   #anonymity   #bigbrother  
When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

I found this article to be very interesting, especially regarding the excavations at the temple sites, especially the rather large one on top of Mount Gerizim....

This post should be repeatedly thrown at BMORG until everyone there has read it, taken it to heart, and followed its advice to the letter....

Why was MegaUpload really shut down?

In December of 2011, just weeks before the takedown, Digital Music News reported on something new that the creators of #Megaupload were about to unroll. Something that would rock the music industry to its core. (http://goo.gl/A7wUZ)

I present to you... MegaBox. MegaBox was going to be an alternative music store that was entirely cloud-based and offered artists a better money-making opportunity than they would get with any record label.

"UMG knows that we are going to compete with them via our own music venture called Megabox.com, a site that will soon allow artists to sell their creations directly to consumers while allowing artists to keep 90 percent of earnings," MegaUpload founder Kim 'Dotcom' Schmitz told Torrentfreak

Not only did they plan on allowing artists to keep 90% of their earnings on songs that they sold, they wanted to pay them for songs they let users download for free.

"We have a solution called the Megakey that will allow artists to earn income from users who download music for free," Dotcom outlined. "Yes that's right, we will pay artists even for free downloads. The Megakey business model has been tested with over a million users and it works."
