"It would be probably be better if the authorities accepted this is a new situation, that this is history happening. History is a thing that happens in waves. Generally it is best to go with these waves, not try to make them turn back – the Canute option. I'm hoping that the world's leaders will realise this."

Video of cops cold bloodedly beating the hell out of students at Berkeley today. The students link arms and are just standing there. The police jab them brutally. There have got to be a lot of people seriously injured here. People are saying the police taped over their badge names and numbers. Nothing... nothing justifies this.

Splendid infographics comparing corrections and higher education at Fast Company. Spending, effectiveness and world ranking are all highlighted in a well-cited CC:BY-NC-ND page. The title is something of a false comparison, but forgivable in light of the quality content. PublicAdministration.net deserves plenty of praise for these.

Apparently, the US thinks that running a website linking to copyrighted material should be grounds for extradition to the US on criminal charges. Under this conception, is anyone safe from getting prosecuted under US laws? Note that US copyright laws are much stronger than most EU laws which -- for instance -- tend not to criminalize merely linking to content.
