It’s Time to Encrypt the Entire Internet ...
The Heartbleed bug crushed our faith in the secure web, but a world without the encryption software that Heartbleed exploited would be even worse. In fact, it's time for the web to take a good hard look at a new idea: encryption everywhere.

What’s Driving Google’s Wild Moonshots? Desperation ...
A Google ad isn’t worth as much as it used to be. In its quarterly earnings report yesterday, the company said the “cost per click” of an ad on the site dropped again, a years-long trend that shows no sign of reversing. The decline contributed to Google missing Wall Street’s profit expectations. But it wasn’t the only factor.

+Carlos Zorrilla I use this site sparingly but then again I never aimed for a lot of attention from strangers. To each their own really, I just prefer to focus on building relations with people I may someday meet rather than gain attention from strangers spread around the planet if that makes sense.

* 6-Mile-Long Solar Panels in Space Could Have Beamed Energy to the U.S. * ...

Imagine a fleet of 60 six-mile-long satellites beaming 300 gigawatts of electricity to Earth. It sounds like sci-fi, but NASA and the Department of Energy looked into just such a system in the heady post-Apollo, pre-Shuttle days of the 1970s.
