Cue the ad industry freak out... again.
The adoption of ad-blocking technology is rising steeply. Some see an existential threat to online content as we know it, but others see a new business niche.

uBlock (Safari) and uBlock Origin (FF, Chrome) blocks the most. Just using Safari to view my G+ stream, I get over 2000 blocks a day.

This makes me sad. Even though they will eventually make it to PBS... 
Under the deal, production will increase to 35 episodes a year from the current 18, and a spinoff show and another new educational series for children will be created.

But... but... Jim Henson was a HUGE supporter of public television.... He specifically created Sesame Street to resonate with the kids in the city who don't have access to all the cool, fancy toys! I... I... /cry

Good use of visualization. Also, interesting to see what could end up being "timeless"...

I suspect this is because they've been getting so much blow back on their "Do no harm" mantra. When you own the major firms that create robots for the military, "Do no harm" is a little hard to swallow.

Japan's latest pop sensation isn't some typical, fresh-faced teeny bopper -- it's 33, young-at-heart grandmas.... average age: 84. Meet KBG84.  All they want is for you come and join them dance -- much
