Why the Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted

http://tech.slashdot.org

"Social media is ill-suited to promoting real social change, argues Malcolm Gladwell in this article from The New Yorker magazine. He deftly debunks conventional wisdom surrounding the impact of Twitter, Facebook and other social media in driving systemic social change, comparing them to the organizational strategies of the 1960s civil rights movement.

The man was a passenger in a car driven by his girlfriend, who was stopped for making an illegal turn. After obtaining the girlfriend's (driver) identification, the police officer questioned the passenger as to his identity. The man refused to comply. He was then arrested, and later convicted at a bench trial, of Refusal to Identify Self, a Class C misdemeanor.

Are Independent Thinkers Mentally Ill? by Mark Nestmann

http://www.lewrockwell.com

There’s a long and sordid history of governments using psychiatry for political repression. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual defines “oppositional defiant disorder” (ODD) as “an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior toward authority figures.” ODD can evolve into “conduct disorder” (CD), which DSM defines as “wherein the rights of others or social norms are violated.”

Uh-oh. So violating “social norms” is now a mental illness as well.

Steve Jobs keeps caught with ninja stars in carry-on luggage

http://gizmodo.com

Steve Jobs was stopped at the Kansai International Airport last July, after security found ninja stars in his carry-on luggage. And boy he got pissed-off.

Jobs said it wouldn't make sense for a person to try to hijack his own plane, according to the report. He then told officials he would never visit Japan again, the magazine reported.

Video - Orange County Civil Disobedience Campaign: Phase One

http://www.cityhallsandwichclub.com

On August 23, 2010 Liberty activists from the Orlando area gathered in front of Orlando City Hall to intentionally violate a City Ordinance banning "Group Feeding" (25 or more persons) within a 2 mile radius of city hall.. All local media was alerted prior to our demonstration and City Hall members were even invited to join us.

We violated this law and were able to feed over 100 homeless people without any confrontations with local law enforcement. We hope to continue this trend and explore the freedom of assembly by applying the same tactic to Public Assembly Ordinances.

Apple's Steve Jobs has been driving without a license plate for years

http://gizmodo.com

His 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG has been shot without proper attire more times than an HP marketing contractor.

The only thing more abundant than the photos are the myriad theories behind how Silicon Valley's most notorious PL8 H8TR generates this special vehicular-code distortion field.

Free Staters in custody after city council disruption

http://sentinelsource.com

The article in the Keene Sentinel about Ian, Sam and Monica's arrest. It was edited at 9:20pm (during the show) to say that THREE were arrested, rather than just two (which is what was written when Marc read the article on the show). In fact, it was edited very shortly after Sean pointed out that 3 were arrested.... I guess the folks at the Sentinel listen to FTL?

The graffiti on the sign outside the Boulder County Justice Center has been there for four days, but only now have authorities caught onto the vandal's irony -- and they are not amused.
