Does the US really love journalists and free speech?
After supporters protested his “sham” trial, Abdulelah Haider Shaye would have been pardoned. Then Obama intervened.

Betteridge's Law of Headlines is most apt here

Disney quotes "The Art Spirit" by Robert Henri and four artists paint a tree from nature...so good
So turns out Disney artists are ridiculously talented. And also ridiculously stylish. Who shows up to paint wearing a suit?!

Just found this free* steganography tool, and thought that this might be the right crowd to share it with.

* as in free speech, also beer. No ads.

I honestly didn’t know that cats would want to eat bananas. I thought they were indifferent to sweet things.

Just look at that banana mush thickened with potato starch and then extruded from a 3D printer. Just look at it.
We've seen many people use food as 3D printer feed in the past, such as chocolates, candies and even ice cream. But can you imagine 3D printing anything

Ambition is a short sci fi film that celebrates the pioneer Rosetta mission and its ambition to land on a comet for the first time in human history.

I’ve seen it. It’s a really good little film.

Just as #Anonymous are closing websites in defence of free expression, and #Cameron is seeking to crack down on private communication in defence of free speech, so the French are cracking down on inflammatory speech in memory of #CharlieHebdo.

It is a characteristic of extremists that they do not understand irony.
Arrest of French comedian Dieudonné over Facebook comments portends bigger crack down on dissent in Europe.

‘Bill Caming became AT&T's attorney for privacy and fraud matters in September 1965. Greenstar had been in operation for about a year when he was briefed on it. His reaction was immediate: "Change the name. I don't even know what it is, but it just sounds illegal. Change the name." More innocent-sounding code names like "Dewdrop" and "Ducky" were apparently unavailable, so AT&T and Bell Labs opted for something utilitarian and unlikely to attract attention: Greenstar was rechristened "Toll Test Unit."’
28 January 2013. ATT Project Greenstar Secretly Spied Millions of Calls. Greenstar prefigures current ATT's once-secret participation in intercepting vast telecommunications data for the National Security Agency. More: https://www.eff.org/nsa-spying/faq ...

Though you might like to see this portrait I created of Gertrude Stein out of coins for Target Margin Theater: http://targetmargin.org/
First, Gertrude Stein. We read the writings of Gertrude Stein and we have loved reading the writings of Gertrude Stein because they are funny and fun and they are like thinking and we do like thinking and fun together. Next many artists. Many artists work with Target Margin Theater and they ...

A paper that largely consists of the words “Get me off your fucking mailing list” repeated 863 times has been accepted by a journal that claims to be peer reviewed. The move might appear to offer hope to scientists struggling to get marginal work published, but really just exposes the extent of scam publications pretending to be contributing to science.

The US is slowly catching up with Canada!
A bill passed through the US House of Representatives is designed to prevent qualified, independent scientists from advising the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They will be replaced with industry affiliated choices, who may or may not have relevant scientific expertise, but whose paychecks benefit from telling the EPA what their employers want to hear.

Boosting the signal.
 
This happened last night in Mexico: People took their discontent, and anger, and indignation and took the streets. This was not, however, everything that happened; there were also some violent incidents which I'm pretty sure some news outlets will decide to focus on, ignoring what happened for hours: people marching, people chanting, and people protesting in peace.

So, yeah, this happened last night, this is what most media, at least national media, will choose to ignore, and this is what I want you to know, because every single person in today's events deserves it.

How piracy fuels terrorism.
Illicit foreign films offer young North Koreans like Park Yeon-mi a rare window on the outside world. She believes the exposure has changed her generation, and there’s no going back

the argument boils down to "enterprise: good; government: bad; technology will save us".

Whatever, it's Forbes.
