Drawbacks: a lot of words, can't glance through it in 2 minutes. Benefits - enlightenment on privacy :)

And this is OUR representative... I wrote an angry email. Hope I'm not the only one.

I guess this is kind of obvious, but a lot of people still believe in the inherent "democratizing" power of the Internet, in the network age, which means the end of all hierarchies, and in facebook revolutions. Here is a good analysis of the belief and it's not pretty...
Groups like Occupy Wall Street embraced the open-source logic of the Internet as an organizing principle. It explains a lot about why movements fail.

While preparing for voting, I learned quite a few surprising facts. Did you know that a few months ago California spent $500M on a court case automation system and then cancelled the project (when the price tag reached $2B)?

I agree with you, +Boris Mazniker . The doctors are a kind of pathological anomaly: they have a guild that keeps their numbers artificially low in order to keep the incomes artificially high. I suspect that if school education were completely privatized and the schoolteachers formed a guild, the same thing would happen. Their social status would go way up, and they will get all the respect doctors get nowadays (respect is closely correlated with money in our society, says Captain Obvious), but would that necessarily attract the right kind of people -- I'm not so sure. So I don't know. It seems our value and reward system is so out of whack that every good intention will turn into something ugly. Oh well...

The cult of equity is dying. Like a once bright green aspen turning to subtle shades of yellow then red in the Colorado fall, investors’ impressions of “stocks for the long run” or any run have mellow...

Да, я там был на конференции лет 7-8 назад. Там много чего красивого. Рядом Ассизи - родина Святого Франциска, основателя ордена францисканцев, в честь которого назван наш город.

Madeira was discovered by Portuguese sailors in the service of Infante D. Henrique (Henry the Navigator) in 1419, and settled after 1420.

Ordered a grilled cheese sandwich for $6.95. Was hoping for a slice of tomato, little salad or something. Got nothing other than 2 small slices of bread with cheese in between and a few chips. Seems deficient compared to other places.

Уже с 1 августа начнут появляться бахчевые развалы, на которых все желающие смогут приобрести сочное лакомство — арбуз. Но медики советуют не спешить с их покупкой, так как ранние арбузы могут быть опасны для здоровья. На что обращать внимание при выборе арбуза, смотрите в нашей инфографике http://ria.ru/infografika/20120720/703647551.html
