An interesting commentator on Big (personal) Data, the Internet Age, privacy, tyranny and economic cataclysm, and decision-predictive manipulation and consequences -- like in Minority Report, the movie based on the short story by Philip K. Dick:  Jaron Lanier.  I'm reacting to an essay of his I read in Scientific American.  Unfortunately, the article is not available (yet) for free, so I've linked a section of The Guardian for your perusal instead.

Visual mapping of the interconnections among the largest corporations in the world.  Fascinating.  147 of these are "heavily" interconnected, and according to the article presumably heavily change-resistant.  They own and control most of the others (ed: 1318 companies in total).

How Linux is built!

Interesting video about Linux and how it is built. Explained in a very easy way so you can understand that stuff also as a non-techie ;-)

A working quantum Internet has been running for two years now at Los Alamos National Lab -- said to offer perfect session privacy due to quantum indeterminacy.

He made $14M last year, and according to the article isn't "known for being a philanthropist".  I think what I admire is his sense of gratitude to those who made his bonus possible.  No one accomplishes anything without sustained/deep help from others.
