Apparently I’ve earned the dubious distinction of having become an expert in project failure. I’ve always had an interest in project failure—Jenny and I have been doing our “Why Projects Fail” talk…

Contact your congressman and let them know that encryption is important to your privacy.
 
Draft encryption bill could spell the end of privacy and security as we know it
Apple's battle with the FBI has focused the attention of the technology community on encryption. But while just about all of the big players in the tech world backed Apple's refusal to create a backdoor for the FBI into iOS, Congress has a very different idea about how encryption and governmental access to data should be handled. This is perfectlt demonstrated by a new bill.

The more I dug into this story, the uglier it looks. There is more, much more, to be found, here's what I have to date. I just updated the story with information about his arrest. There are still many unanswered questions.
Just prior to his death, Murdock had started sending increasingly erratic tweets from his Twitter account.

Really cool! Hopefully coming to a smartphone screen soon.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have created a new form of carbon that can be used to make diamonds at room temperature.

This firm represents lowlife leeches who are looking for a free ride. This is why Michigan has some of the highest car insurance rates in the country. Sadly, the lawyers at this firm can not even file simple paperwork correctly. They take shortcuts and just cut and paste from previous cases and don't bother to check if they got the details correct.
