Anyone know of an NYC photographer/videographer who would be willing to cover a Feb 17th benefit for Rainforest Action Network gratis?

The recent supreme court decision about strip searches makes me queasy, and Wolf's essay really captures my concerns about its implications. But her point about the use of the term "detainee" was new to me, and truly terrifying:

"The most terrifying phrase of all in the decision is justice Kennedy's striking use of the term "detainees" for "United States citizens under arrest". Some members of Occupy who were arrested in Los Angeles also reported having been referred to by police as such. Justice Kennedy's new use of what looks like a deliberate activation of that phrase is illuminating.

"Ten years of association have given "detainee" the synonymous meaning in America as those to whom no rights apply – especially in prison. It has been long in use in America, habituating us to link it with a condition in which random Muslims far away may be stripped by the American state of any rights. Now the term – with its associations of "those to whom anything may be done" – is being deployed systematically in the direction of … any old American citizen."
Naomi Wolf: Believe me, you don't want the state having the power to strip your clothes off. And yet, it's exactly what is happening

I love Amanda Palmer. And, funnily enough, I think there are a lot of lessons for fundraising here.

Yeah, I don't see it. 

Neat photos, though.

Wow, this is a really compelling way to represent income and health disparities - probably even more so for someone familiar with London's tube stations and their neighborhoods. I would be really curious to see a similar map of the BART system. (via FlowingData)

Now here's an exercise program with some good incentives.
Sep. 14, 2011 - Gamers have long been stereotyped as people who do not like to leave the confines of their couches. The most exercise they get is when they walk to the door

Watching Peter Segal talk was a trippy experience - my brain refused to connect the voice with the picture, and I kept feeling like it was dubbed.
