Classic.
These YouTube videos give you a glimpse of what today's popular websites and services would have looked like back in the 1980s. Tubular!

My thoughts on Amazon and the wild world of bestseller lists... 
My book, The Digital Mystique, has now been out for a month and it has been fascinating to watch the online sales through Amazon as an author as well as a digital media strategist, techie and data geek. Now I can say legitimately that my book is a bestseller – even though it was published by a ...

Great idea in theory but how will rockets navigate through all the satellites? More space debris?
Summary: Sources told the Wall Street Journal that Musk is working with Google’s former satellite executive to build a factory that could pump out small satellites.

I think you guys really don't understand just how much space is in space :D


This is needed in such a big way.  Especially as Net Neutrality is slowly eroded.

Wheeler from the FCC is a huge douche that has allowed huge data caps and double dipping from ISPs. 

Many areas are starting to look into co-ops and municipally owned ISPs.

Ultimately these companies like Comcast, Time Warner, and Verizon are looking for ways to improve their performance after people are loosing interest in cable and Netflix is doing great.  If you don't know what I am talking about look into some graphs of Netflix before and after it paid to have the ISPs stop throttling their speeds.

It isn't a matter of technology either.  Fiber optic cables can carry terabytes of information a second and to route traffic it requires an extra port on the node. 

This is just the companies that don't compete and have a monopoly.

I like the concept and the look but it's a little confusing the execution... unclear when you're replying vs. forwarding. I'd prefer a desktop view.
