Anil Dash writes that a cynical blogger in-joke—”never read the comments”—has become a “bad habit,” an excuse for giving free rein to abusive conduct. honestly, I get it — m…

I've always loved watching the hakas being performed.
Some day, I'll see one done live.

I'm a big fan (reader, listener, etc.) of +Sam Harris​. This podcast is of an excellent conversation with David Deutsch that Sam recorded recently.

Highly recommended for its discussion of scientific thinking and epistemology.
In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris talks to physicist David Deutsch about the reach and power of human knowledge, the future of artificial intelligence, and the survival of civilization.

The pursuit of happiness might be enshrined into the US Declaration of Independence and arguably the basis for western civilization, but for legendary German director Werner Herzog, the concept is...

Glad to see that intuitive thinking doesn't fail.
Binge On doesn't even pass the sniff test. Same goes for music streaming, imo.
The debate over the potential harm of T-Mobile's Binge On continues, with a new study from Stanford University claiming that the perk violates key net neutrality principles and is "likely illegal."...

The people who should really stay out of the encryption debate are the CEO's of the major telcos. Like Stephenson; people who won't think twice about violating their customers' privacy at the sketchiest government request.
AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson doesn't think Apple CEO Tim Cook should be making long-term decisions around encryption that could ripple across the technology industry. "I don’t think it is Silicon...

This.
Much respect lost.
On Monday, the Electronic Frontier Foundation published an investigation into T-Mobile’s “Binge On” video service, which allegedly optimizes videos for mobile download and does no…
