WASHINGTON—Anxiously anticipating the Supreme Court’s decision on the issue, the nation was reportedly on edge Wednesday as it waited to see whether the court would legalize gay marriage now or in a few years.

Apparently, even ER nurses are Googling their patients to find out if they’re criminals, or if they’re famous, or just if they’re anything interesting at all.

I’m sorry to learn that +Circa has been unable to raise another round of funding. They are a competitor, true, but it’s incredibly difficult and painful to start a company and their app is well done.

I suspect Circa’s experience shows that hiring something like 20 writers/editors to select and summarize a subset of the day’s news may not be the most viable approach. One thing I’ve learned while building https://recent.io/ is that it’s more expensive initially to write code, but less expensive once the recommendation engine is complete (even with Google App Engine frontend instance hour costs!).
Mobile news app was unable to raise new venture capital funding.

Absolutely great read ...

"According to law enforcement and intelligence agencies, encryption should come with a backdoor. It’s not a new policy position—it dates to the Crypto Wars of the 1990s—but it’s gaining new Beltway currency."

Tonight a reader tipped us off to a video posted by comic Tamale Rocks, who uncovered a two-way mirror in the women’s bathroom at Chicago bar Cigars and Stripes.

A photographer and creator by trade and for fun. If I'm not out shooting or tinkering, fixing someone's computer problem, I'm interpreting at the Shinnecock Nation Cultural Center & Museum, collaborating with my brother at  Woodknot Design or getting lost in a pair of  headphones.
