THIS WEEK'S ISSUE: THE NEED TO BEAR WITNESS IN SYRIA

For the past year, we have chronicled the brutal violations of human rights and democratic freedoms that are occurring in Syria. We have published photo-essays and analyses that document the violence of the discredited Assad regime. This week, our cover story is told through a special eyewitness, French photographer William Daniels, who was on assignment for us in Syria. Daniels was under siege for several days in the battle-scarred city of Homs before escaping back to France. Some of his colleagues were not so lucky. He was at the same house where journalists Rémi Ochlik and Marie Colvin lost their lives. He stayed with his wounded colleague Edith Bouvier until she could escape with him.

His dramatic story is a microcosm of what millions of Syrians are going through—only they cannot escape the iron hand of their government and their suffering is far worse. We tell this story to not only document the atrocities occurring in Syria but also highlight the fact that journalists like Daniels, Bouvier, Ochlik and Colvin have been the primary means by which the world even knows what is going on there. Unlike the aborted Green Revolution in Iran or the Arab Spring in Egypt, Syria is far more isolated and repressed, and few people can film, tweet or e-mail evidence of what they are seeing and experiencing. That is one reason, as this story reveals, the Assad regime is deliberately targeting journalists.

Sometimes I feel like an Internet referee. Play nice, kids.

There's a great conversation about Pinterest happening here, mostly lead by women who don't like it.
 
Men are from Google+, Women are from Pinterest

Is it true?

Social media is having a rocky week. Twitter just announced it will censor tweets in certain countries to comply with national laws, Google's reputation has taken a hit over Social Search and Facebook's Timeline switch has everyone panicked.

What does this say about the state of the social web, and does it have you concerned as users? Tell me which kerfuffle you think could actually have lasting consequences.

Of all the three companies, i will trust only one company.Atleast 80% of the developed world loves google.99% of the developing world loves google.They are not afraid to give any personal info if at all they are willing to take.The more they improve adwords for revenue increase the more free products or features google will give.This is just my opinion.I do not have stats to prove the percentages.

I have a feature piece in the latest issue of TIME, which is on newsstands now ... about Facebook.

Read a preview of it here, or steal someone else's copy of the magazine.

Do we have any followers in Kansas City?

Google just started laying miles of fiber-optic cable across Kansas City, Kansas and neighboring Kansas City, Missouri to (hopefully) embarrass current ISPs for crappy service. KC residents, will you sign up for the service? We'll need you to keep us informed once it's available.

I used to be a very shy person, but when I realized opportunities began to slip me by I snapped out of it. Looking forward to reading this article.
