Part of me says "really?!?" and part of me knows more than one occasion where this might've been handy. :D

RT @RepZoeLofgren Read my full statement from today's hearing on #SOPA http://t.co/YtmXpPbJ (via +Brian Hawthorne)

The matter before us today is enormously important. H.R. 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act, would reshape our country’s legal framework for online innovation and commerce, and perhaps the technical structure of the global Internet as well.

Unfortunately, the panel of witnesses convened for this hearing is severely inadequate. Civil libertarians and law professors have said this bill is inconsistent with the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Network engineers and security experts have said that the bill could imperil cybersecurity and the technical infrastructure of the Internet. Consumer groups have expressed worries that the bill could raise the prices we pay for goods online. Human rights advocates have said that the bill could legitimize Internet censorship by repressive regimes around the world. Libraries and educational institutions have expressed concern that they could face new criminal and civil liability for innocent conduct. Venture capitalists and technology entrepreneurs have said that H.R. 3261 could stifle investment in legitimate Internet businesses and online services.

None of these voices are represented at our hearing today. Members will not have the opportunity to explore any of these concerns in detail. In their place, a single Internet company—Google—was invited to testify, on a panel with five other witnesses testifying in defense of H.R. 3261.

I second this idea...

Over and over and over throughout the day here at Lego Education's STEM Summit, the conversations have revolved around how standardized testing is actually standing in the way of our helping support STEM education

So, is all this new data from Zynga news or noise? I'm a bit skeptical and have always thought that this was just another bubble. But they're still growing (in revenues) and pulling in cash, so can Zynga leverage the cash to successfully decrease its reliance on Facebook and its 3-4 top titles?

Netflix kills Quikster... But is it too late?
I just received an email from Netflix stating that DVDs will be staying at Netflix since, "for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult" (you think!?). I'd planned on killing my membership and this hasn't changed my mind. I wonder how many others feel the same way.

I think there are a fair few members that'll quit because they just don't like how Netflix handled everything. But I also think that there are also many members who were really just catalyzed out of inertia when all this news hit and used the price increases and general chaos.

Kinda wish I could have a Shared Music filter on my +Stream so I can see the music folks are sharing from Google Music easily.

This is not really 'new' news but this post seems to have some decent thoughts about why Lego Universe didn't make it. The idea that positioning (and pricing) it as an MMO resulted in a perception of this being too hardcore rings pretty true.

If you know a 14-18 year old, have them submit a YouTube video with a cool experiment to be done in space. Will be judged by some amazing folks like Stephen Hawking, and if they win it will be live streamed from the space station on YouTube!

You can all help inspire our next generation of leaders to get excited about science and engineering and have some fun too! Thanks to our Googlers, the space agencies, and the other sponsors for doing this. And check out the video which has already been watched a million times!

Bay Area food question - where is the best ramen in the SF Bay Area? Assuming I get responses, please try to +1 instead of repeating previous recommendations. Thanks!
