the insensitivity is deeply disturbing.
Jason Calacanis originally shared:
 
Shocking photos of employee costume party as a law firm that specializes in foreclosures were published in the nytimes (and shared on Boingboing and here on Google+ by a couple of folks like +Wil Wheaton).

Do these folks realize that they are no different than the folks who are losing their homes? I mean, many Americans are only one layoff away from losing their homes. This reminds me of the cops giving Occupy Wall Street protestors a hard time, while their pensions, salaries and benefits are being annihilated due to us not taxing the rich and the greed of wall street (via their pension funds).

We're all in this together.... even the mega rich. If thing continue the way they are folks are not only going to be protesting in front of the homes of the rich--they are going to start burning them down.

This is a serious situation for America. We have to get our act together and I am in full support of the Occupy Protests--even if my protest is trying to create sustainable jobs for Gen-Y folks who in many cases don't want them.

Really interesting point for the importance of handles in self-expression.

+Jennifer Volk Thanks for sharing, first time I've heard Chris talk about anything, and it was very insightful view of what has been going on. I do recall the old days of the web and that it wasn't as locked down as it is now. The blending of the organic and digital world is increasing each day as we react with more technology.

Bradley Manning Had Secrets
The story of Bradley Manning, not as a Wikileaks ’hacktivist’, but as a young American soldier simultaneously going through a crisis-of-conscious and a crisis-of-gender-identity.

Using Adrian Lamo’s chat logs of instant messenger conversations he had with Bradley, the film explores issues of personal and political secrets, digital identity and alienation.

Thats the same video I posted but spatry has a walkthrough at: http://youtu.be/QKpXiUD6Tc8
The bit torrents at the commodore site are the only ones so far. I don't think anyone else would host the full iso when bit torrents are available. But there is a virtual disk image, details at: http://virtualboximages.com/Commodore+OS+Vision+VirtualBox+Virtual+Computer

It's mint linux based on ubuntu 10.10 mavric: gnome 2.3+awn+a lot of compiz effects+retro theme+ton of apps

list of the games: http://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/mmt7n/the_retro_vision_of_commodores_new_os/c328xpk

list of the IDEs and emulators: (no roms included for the emulators in the images)
http://openattitude.com/2011/11/23/the-retro-vision-of-commodores-new-os/

and according to distrowatch:
"Commodore OS Vision uses the classic GNOME 2 interface and features extensive Compiz/Emerald desktop effects. It includes dozens of games of all genres (FPS, Racing, Retro etc), the Firefox and Chromium web browsers, LibreOffice, Scribus, GIMP, Blender, OpenShot and Cinellera, advanced software development tools and languages, sound editing through Ardour and Audacity, and music composition programs such as the Linux MultiMedia Studio.

The list is interesting. A few remarks:
a) as humans we innovate first to send "tourists" to space rather than crash proof cars
b) we already have 7 billion brains (probably 8 billion by 2020), yet we think about making computers that have the same computing power as humans? I mean, what do we expect? they'll inject wisdom in our societies?? or do we need 7 billion more brains ?
c) my preferred innovation is making disabled people walk.
