It's funny where these screen shots show up. If we thought it'd still be hanging around this long after the event I think +Pete Warden and I might have put more effort into the UI. Oh well...

Grounding the discussion into the capabilities of the technologies would not just appeal to geeks; it is an entirely practical and pragmatic approach to the issue. Taking any kind of cue on morality from the hypocritical (and frankly, more often than not misleading) Daily Mail is not just pointless; it's counter-productive.
