Just picked this up for myself. It's next on the list! :D
 
Having a little pre-holiday sale of THERE GOES THE GALAXY until this Friday. So you can snag the ebook version (Kindle or Nook) for just $0.99, which is a LOT of sci-fi/humor value for under a buck. (Plus it's gluten, peanut and soy-free.) 

For old-school print fans like me, the book also comes in a paperback version (though that's not on the dollar menu).

If you would kindly pass along the deal to your favorite sci-fi lovers, I'd be mightily thankful.

Links are as follows.

Signal boost.
 
Crowdsourcing to foil a theft!

tl;dr someone stole a deployed soldier's trailer from his yard with this completely hand-made down to the poles tent in it.

This is terrible,My Lovely Lady, Lady Kira Raven,(We live in Oklahoma).I am Lord Charles Raven, and I am currently on deployment in Afghanistan running convoys through the badlands. After we got married we lived in Germany where she sewed, and painted her own pavilion and worked at the army wood craft shop to make all the poles and the center wheel. She painted the pavilion blue and with a sun and stars design, it is freaking awesome. This morning she posted that someone stole our trailer full of our SCA equipment out of our yard, including this tent that she hand crafted and has had for years. If anyone knows anyone in Oklahoma, please share this around in case they see any SCA equipment or trailers.The trailer was a little red 2 wheel ,Box trailer with a pirate flag painted on one side, and our medieval crest painted on the other side.

Posted to public, please reshare! If you're in the OK area, keep an eye out!

Notified in particular my SCA circle. If you see it, let him know: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151092737472462&set=a.10151090285742462.435822.687077461&type=1

I got 29 out of 32. Of the 3 I got wrong I only didn't know one even after I saw the correct answer. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.

Iran blocks Google, will launch domestic internet in March 2013.

Please re-share.

#iran   #china   #internetfreedom   #euromaestro  

Iran plans to switch its citizens onto a domestic Internet network in what officials say is a bid to improve cyber security but which many Iranians fear is the latest way to control their access to the web.

The announcement, made by a government deputy minister on Sunday, came as state television announced Google Inc's search engine and its email service would be blocked within a few hours.

Google and Gmail will be filtered throughout the country until further notice, an official identified only by his last name, Khoramabadi, said, without giving further details.

We see more and more countries going down the same route that China has done to block internet access and really control the content to which people have access.  

===========================================

See the post by Reuters.

===========================================

Let's defend freedom of expression.

I was asked by some Iranians that use Google plus to help.  Google has already been blocked now in Iran.  
I don't often ask for shares but I feel this is important.

Please share this post and share any thoughts on what can be done.

Dear +Google+ ,

Please stop censoring people for posting images that some individuals find offensive for reasons that are, well, let's be honest here, the reasons are entirely subjective. 

For example - I find images of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to be loathsome and offensive. Does that mean you'll start banning images of political candidates? 

The line between art and pornography is arbitrary at best and subjective at worst. This is true of many of our categorizations. A prime example: the difference between free speech and a threat of violence is often determined by the forum in which it is presented as well as through the character and occupation of the presenter. Ted Nungent telling President Obama to suck on his assault rifle (homosexual subtext aside) is an example of something that was ruled as free speech because the general population considered Ted Nungent to be incapable of unlikely to turn his words into action.

With this in mind, there is a happy medium. A compromise, as much as that has become a dirty word in American culture today. By placing an option on an individual's account settings that would filter anything listed as "possibly offensive" or "adult". A further addition in the form of being able to flag one's entire stream of posts as "possibly offensive" would save those of us who just generally piss others off the trouble of having to selectively tag our posts for this automated filter you could very easily create.

Then everyone is happy - except the control freaks who simply enjoy forcing others into their moralistic or cultural paradigm.

Please stand up for organizing, rather than banning, the world's information - you know, kind of like what Google originally set out to do.

Sincerely,
Dave Kuszmar

PS - Please stop banning +Moan Lisa or any related accounts.
