Police in some towns are creating safe rendezvous spots for craigslist transactions.

I suspect this won't be as useful for the sex service ads.
Craigslist is convenient, but it can also be dangerous.

Scalia needs to get out more.

Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the minority, disagreed, describing hotels as “an obvious haven for those who trade in human misery.” Such places, he inveighed, “provide housing to vulnerable transient populations” and “are a particularly attractive site for criminal activity ranging from drug dealing and prostitution to human trafficking.” They offer “privacy and anonymity on the cheap,” have been “employed as prisons for migrants” and served as “rendezvous sites where child sex workers meet their clients on threat of violence.” ❞

"I would say what is being done by the Australian government goes further than making it difficult to create art. They are in fact doing what they can to shut down dissent. Dictatorships regularly employ this tactic in order to entrench their power. People find it easy to see art as a luxury, but artists are the people who ring the alarm bells, hold a mirror up to society, create alternatives, and engender resilience, bonding, and cooperation. Healthy societies have a healthy artistic community. If you are seeing less and less new art, local art, community art, then understand you are in a country that is self-destructing. If artists are being silenced, then you are in a country that has turned into a despotic regime."
Traditionally arts have always had a difficult time in gathering money for the creation of new works and the support of our artists. Main sources are governments, rich philanthropists, audiences, and extra jobs. With governments and benefactors it always feels like begging.

When you think you've seen all the crazy, there's always one more.

That brings me back to this Hoax shooting. The shooter is an actor, the supposed victims are not dead- they are simply in a sort of witness protection program in some paradise with millions of dollars. Those phoney sell out actors who stayed behind have some work to do on all the major networks, but when the coverage dies down and the shadow government (Rome) gets ready for their next illusion, then they will get to go be with their "lost loved ones" in their paradise of choice. To bad for them, they will realize they are trapped if they ever do grow a conscience, or if they don't grown one and repent, they'll find themselves in a liars hell forever - I wonder if it's worth it to get out of Charlestown with a few bucks - I mean do these people know what the Ustashi are?? the Nazis??

Anyway, I'm getting a bit off track, but you get the drift (or maybe you don't). Look, Adrian Rodgers the L.A. Hoax shooter, Sandy Hook was a total Hoax, Boston Bombing was totally a Hoax, The Arura Hoax shooting didn't happen,Jared Lee Loughner shooting with the fake head wound idiot congress woman Gifford didn't happen, the Freddy Brown Shooting (the black guy running away from white cop) didn't happen! These are a few of the Staged Events, being done by Actors in front of the Big Screen- The News Media! Don't get me wrong though, sometime they do kill people, but the government is almost always behind the killers - like Columbine. Now, though they are able to get away with not even having to have an incident to really happen- in the past people weren't fooled as easy as now. ❞

I kind of grok that, Kee, but you'll drive yourself mad eventually if you continue to try. And not in any healthy way, but in a The White Plague kind of way.

"I'm not a racist, but..." translates to, "I know I'm a racist but I don't want to let myself believe it. And I certain;y won't admit it to you."

Artifacts: Cleaning Up What's Left Behind 
In Japan an increasing number of people die alone. Many are not discovered for weeks or months after their deaths. This happens, in part because of Japan's aging population: 1 in 5 people is over the age of 65.

However, another factor is the alienation of men in their 50s and 60s who had given their entire lives to their jobs and lost all sense of worth when they lost their positions in the economic collapse. 

"Although the apartment is crammed with ephemera, it is empty of identifying belongings. There are no letters. There are no postcards. There are no family photographs, no paintings or pictures. The nicotine-stained walls are bare but for the ominous shadows of the workers, whose faint silhouettes are the dead man’s gruesome legacy. Family, so important in Japanese tradition, is absent here."
...
"During the boom years many of these workers sacrificed family and friends for the growth of their companies. However, when the Japanese economy eventually crashed in the early ’90s, many of these salarymen lost their jobs or were forced into smaller, less prestigious roles with less social security. Having lost their status they found they had no purpose in life."

“Around 90 percent of the cases I deal with are men,” Koremura says. “Unlike women, men seem incapable of integrating themselves into a community when they live alone.”

A fantastic invention: Jie Bao (of Tsinghua University) and Moungi Bawendi (of MIT) have invented an optical spectrometer small and cheap enough to attach to a cell phone, which can nonetheless perform comparably well to serious professional equipment.

Spectrometers are amazingly useful devices: they simply break light up through a prism, and report on how bright the light is in each frequency. That lets you recognize chemicals (each molecule has a distinctive color "fingerprint"), measure temperature (when you heat an object, it glows with a spectrum that's a simple function of temperature), and even measure the speed of objects. (If you know something's color when it's still, its colors in motion are shifted by the Doppler effect, just like an approaching siren's pitch goes up and a receding one goes down. The fingerprints of chemical colors give you an excellent reference point for that)

Bao and Bawendi's device is completely different from traditional spectrometers: Rather than using a prism and precision optics, they use an array of 195 carefully chosen inks and a CCD light sensor. The result is rugged and cheap – a few dollars, instead of a few hundred or thousand.

This is a tool that could revolutionize all sorts of devices; the authors give an example of a tool that could identify skin cancer just by pointing at it. (Cancers contain specific chemicals which produce specific optical fingerprints, after all!)

And more to the point, it's neat.

Dear Drs. Bao and Bawendi: TAKE MY MONEY!

Via +California Academy of Sciences.
A spectrometer that fits in your mobile devices could let you scan yourself for skin cancer.

Lawsuits are starting to overturn the "poor stay in jail awaiting trial, rich get out" bail model.
Anthony Cooper was going to jail because he couldn’t afford to buy his way out. After being picked up for public intoxication at a bus station in Dothan, Alabama, at about 1 a.m. on June 13, Cooper was told that unless he paid $300 in bail money, he would have...

"We hate drugs, homosexuality, abortion, and race-mixing because these things go against God’s law and they are destroying all white nations. But rather than focus on hate, we try to focus on the love of our race. Love for our God and Country. Our goal is to help restore America to a White Christian nation founded on God’s word. This does not mean that we want to see anything bad happen to the darker races, we simply want to live separate from them. As GOD  intended."

Let these people broadcast their identity and ideology far and wide. Let them demonstrate what the progress of civilization is up against in clear, precise terms. There are many who believe these people don't really exist today or don't understand their full intent.

Introduction
Protections for anonymous speech are vital to democratic discourse. Allowing dissenters to shield their identities frees them to express critical, minority views . . . Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . . It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the Bill of Rights, and of the First Amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation . . . at the hand of an intolerant society.
1995 Supreme Court ruling in McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Commission

On Pseudonymity, Privacy and Responsibility on Google+. This covers every argument against pseudonyms that I have heard, and gives lots of examples of real people whom Google doesn't believe are worth allowing here.

Read two bloggers talking about what it's like to get a dozen or so threats of physical violence every week…from people who have found out where you live.
and what it's like when your business gets destroyed by someone spreading lies and creating fake web sites.

On privilege, a word I always used to hate.

How Google needs to fix "common name" enforcement.

It's Google's service, why do I feel I have a right to ask them to change?

How has the internet changed what it means to be "public"? (At the end of an example of the importance of anonymity in influencing scientific change.)

Why is Google hiding their "real name" requirement from new users?

I founded or cofounded seven of the ten startups I’ve been involved in. I have dealt with everything from financing (VC pitches, finding private investors, cutting deals with corporate investors, and by-the-bootstraps) to marketing and sales, public presentations, tutorials, panels and standards committees. On the technical side I have ranged from pure development, to managing development and IT groups, to providing architecture and technology solutions for developers. I believe in flat hierarchies, well-defined processes, and building fun corporate cultures.
