Just finished Yoon Ha Lee's short story "Between Two Dragons", a space opera inspired by Korea's legendary Admiral Yi Sun-Shin! Great stuff!

Australian consumers should be able to legally circumvent geoblocking restrictions that prevent them from using foreign online streaming services like US Netflix, according to the Productivity Commission.

The Federal Government's Productivity Commission is urging lawmakers to make it clear that using VPNs to bypass geoblocking is not piracy.

CHOICE has welcomed the Federal Court's decision to hit Colgate-Palmolive with an $18 million fine to fixing the price and supply of laundry detergent: https://goo.gl/vWlgBo

The fine follows an investigation by the ACCC who alleged Colgate, Cussons and Unilever entered into arrangements to cease supplying standard concentrate and transition to ultra concentrate laundry detergents without passing on cost savings to consumers. https://goo.gl/5GAIsM

This is the equal third largest penalty that the court has ordered for cartel conduct in Australia.

Ants have no central planning, but they can find the optimum path to your picnic with surprising speed (swarm intelligence and emergent behavior). With no central planning, this technique is infinitely scaleable.
The thought occurs to me this would be useful for an arbitrarily huge interstellar empire that had a "survey service" tasked with exploring unexplored solar systems. 

The point is that central planned organization are NOT infinitely scaleable, thus putting a size limit on an interstellar empire.

A new paper shows that the recent discoveries of exoplanets combined with a broader approach to the question makes it possible to assign a new empirically valid probability to whether any other advanced technological civilizations have ever existed.

The Federal Court has ordered Reckitt Benckiser to pay $1.7m for engaging in misleading conduct for its Nurofen Specific Pain products.

It's deeply concerning that consumers were duped into paying more for Nurofen's pain relief products in mistaken belief that they targeted a specific type of pain.

CHOICE gave Nurofen a Shonky Award back in 2010: http://goo.gl/bSdOJd

Do you think Nurofen should've gotten a bigger fine?

Well this is hardly a big whopping surprise … given how difficult HBO (and Foxtel) have made it to access this kind of content in an affordable and accessible manner.
