Not sure if this is legit or not but it's hard to turn down the possibility of unlimited cloud storage for my media...

I've long been an admirer of Alan Watts but it blows my mind how good of a handle he had on economic mechanization and it's effects. Apparently, he had his head wrapped well around this topic prior to the 1970's. In this speech, "Money, Guilt and the Machine," he even talks about a guaranteed basic income which is an idea just now hitting the zeitgeist half a century later.

I've known a lot of trolls during my time on the internets, but apparently the NSA and the GCHQ (Britain's NSA) are the biggest internet trolls of all. Glen Greenwald lays it all out - including the GCHQ slides and related documentation - and it's frightening to say the least...

So I'm reading a Wired article entitled "Killing Net Neutrality Helps Underdogs Succeed" (http://goo.gl/PBSDHP). The title alone makes me quite skeptical and most of the arguments seem contrived and rather specious. Who in the tech world actually thinks killing net neutrality was a good thing? That's fucking ridiculous! Then I notice one of the two authors is from George Mason University’s Mercatus Center, which is largely funded by the Koch brothers (http://goo.gl/RWYjTS). All of a sudden, this nonsense makes sense contextually. Of course corrupt billionaires and their cronies would like to see a corporately controlled internet. Shame on Wired magazine for giving these lying bastards a platform. Disgusting.

Not a bad setup given I'd never brewed until two weeks ago. I'm cold crashing five gallons of Triple Hopped Ale tomorrow, force carbing it on Tuesday and Thursday, it's on tap; I am pleased.

Well, it looks like German newspapers have their facts straight: “A small group of uncompromising Republican ideologues in the House of Representatives are principally responsible for this disaster. They are not only taking their own party to the brink, but the whole country. Unfortunately the leadership of this party has neither had the courage nor the backbone to put them in their place.”

What's the difference between congressional republicans and terrorists? I don't have a joke for this, I'd just really like to know...
