This is why it's important to specify the Three Laws in the correct order.

Maybe he should have better understood this area before proposing the law in the first place, eh?
Proposed revisions would effectively end Illinois lawsuits against Google, Snapchat and Facebook.

I heard last night that the original reps and senators who proposed and caused the creation of the TSA now say it was a mistake and they want to get rid of it.

There's a fine little "contest" at the moment on reddit/imgur where people show there working space. There's one unspoken rule: Working space as in truck, ship, train (so far). Afaik it started with this: and then some people posted their cab shots: http://imgur.com/84tG1JE http://imgur.com/r/all/wKRTM3c http://imgur.com/DD4Hct8 http://imgur.com/kPRK6My http://imgur.com/nCwbho9 and it goes on :)

"It gets worse. If Thiel’s strategy works against Gawker, it could be used by any billionaire against any media organization. Sheldon Adelson, Donald Trump, the list goes on and on. Up until now, they’ve mostly been content suing news organizations as plaintiffs, over stories which name them. But Thiel has shown them how to go thermonuclear: bankroll other lawsuits, as many as it takes, and bankrupt the news organization that way. Very few companies have the legal wherewithal to withstand such a barrage."
His campaign against Gawker, disguised as philanthropy, should scare us all.

I don't really have much of an issue with this. I look forward to the prospect of litigation finance being crowdsourced and what that means for the public interest.

I must have missed the outcry over outlawing the hotel industry?

With all the talk about Facebook now tracking non-users, it's worth reemphasizing how Google protects your privacy with their +1 implementation: https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1319578?hl=en
