I make #bacon. I’m thinking about turning it into a small side business. Looking for feedback.
Hi, my name's Jon Ursenbach. I've been curing, and smoking, artisanal bacon for the past year. It doesn't have all the junk that you normally find in store-bought bacon: preservatives, being mostly wa...

Dude, look at all the posts here about bacon and tell me you're not siting on a gold mine in direct sales.

This Apple v. Samsung ruling reminds me how much I absolutely hate software patents. There isn't anything in the world that stifles innovation than them. Their existence is causing the valley to go into a cold war where everybody hordes piles and piles of them waiting for somebody to make a move. Mutually assured destruction. 

Makes me sick to my stomach.

So Instagram is now going to use photos taken by its users in advertising, and they may or may not disclose to viewers when the advertising is happening.

I have no idea how this will work, and I'm once again glad that I don't use Instagram... but I know a lot of people who do, and many of those people are celebrities to some degree.

Here's what I'm wondering: if Kaley Cuoco uses Instagram to share a photo of her and Melissa Rauch doing something silly, does that mean that Instagram can take that photo and use it to advertise for something silly without compensating them for what becomes a use of their likeness for commercial purposes? I can see that being a pretty serious shitstorm if it happens.

This sort of dovetails with another concern I have about the automatic opt-in nature of much of our digital life: if I'm in someone's address book, and they use an app that grants the developer full, unfettered access to their address book, I've now had my information given without my consultation or consent to a developer, and I never even knew it was happening. 

Just as we have a "do not track" option for our webbrowsing habits, we're going to need to have something similar for other aspects of our increasingly-digital lives: from contact information to our location to moving and still images of ourselves. Because it's no long enough for me to be careful with my opt-ins and online sharing; now I have to ensure that every single person around me is careful, as well.
