Conlangers, take note - Paramount's lawsuit over Anaxar is going to force the courts to actually decide what side of the law (artistic creation or technical depiction) a language is considered.
The latest salvo in a lawsuit over a Star Trek fan film has brought out constructed language nerds in force, and it makes for some really great reading.

Geese nested on BioWare's roof.  Rather than shoo them, they set up a webcam and are streaming it to epic music.  The little goslings have hatched.

At the weekly work luncheon, the topic of extracurricular activities came up. And I was just outclassed. Tor Project, water.org, helping legal immigrants stay legal, helping with disabilities, all these concrete ways to help people and make the world objectively better.
