Now that computers are ubiquitous, what are good ways that people can learn? According to these folks, it's not obvious that video is the way to go. (h/t MIT Media Lab)

"She said she wanted this job because it is the only job she's seen where you get to sit all day."

There are millions of people who could be contributing to society, but instead are on government disability assistance because they don't have the education needed for a desk job and can't succeed in other jobs. Could crowdsourcing and online education come together to create opportunities for them?

Help me pick a new phone?

I'm concerned about labor conditions for those who make the electronics we buy. What manufacturer does the most to ensure justice in their supply chain?

I've heard about Apple's struggles with bonded labor and "conflict" mining (http://www.macrumors.com/2015/02/11/apple-2015-supplier-responsibility-progress-report/). How does that compare with the rest of the industry?

Secondary considerations are longevity (my Motorola Droid X has lasted 4.5 years), voice and radio quality, and security.

Hive Plots. Behind the complaint-laden prose lies an interesting and probably valuable alternative approach for visualizing networks. (And I'm wondering if I can draw out any ideas for visualizing collections that don't have explicit connections.)
