Facebook is Dead.

http://dangerousminds.net

THE BIGGEST ‘BAIT N’ SWITCH’ IN HISTORY?

"...a near infinite variety of organizations; individuals from all walks of life; and businesses, both large and small, began to detect—for it was almost imperceptible at first—that the volume was getting turned down on their Facebook reach. Each post was now being seen only by a fraction of their total “fans” who would previously have seen them."

http://www.democracynow.org

New Mexico residents are trying to a break free from Los Alamos’ nuclear legacy by creating more environmentally sound ways of living. At the forefront of this struggle is renegade architect Michael Reynolds, creator of radically sustainable living options through a process called "Earthship Biotecture." Reynolds’ solar homes are created from natural and recycled materials, including aluminum cans, plastic bottles and used tires. These off-the-grid homes minimize their reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels by harnessing their energy from the sun and wind turbines.

New Technology Should Be Presumed Illegal Until Congress Says OK

http://www.techdirt.com

Whenever possible, when the law is ambiguous or silent on the issue at bar, the courts should let those who want to market new technologies carry the burden of persuasion that a new exception to the broad rights enacted by Congress should be established. That is especially so if that technology poses grave dangers to the exclusive rights that Congress has given copyright owners. Commercial exploiters of new technologies should be required to convince Congress to sanction a new delivery system and/or exempt it from copyright liability. That is what Congress intended.

Apple rejects app that reports US drone strikes.

http://www.techdirt.com

"It’s the third time in a month that Apple has turned Drones+ away, says Josh Begley, the program’s New York-based developer. The company’s reasons for keeping the program out of the App Store keep shifting. First, Apple called the bare-bones application that aggregates news of U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia “not useful.” Then there was an issue with hiding a corporate logo. And now, there’s this crude content problem."

Szasz On Gender Identity Disorder

http://reason.com

Szasz's analysis is highly relevant to the story Mark and Stephanie covered Sunday about the prisoner receiving gender re-assignment surgery. To call this required medical care is to identify the person's condition as a disease. Is that really where we want to go? It wasn't that long ago that homosexuality was considered a disease. I think Szasz would say the prisoner in question was unhappy with his/her lot in life, which is a fairly common condition that should not be medicalized or politicized.

The ugly math of low sales, high costs

http://finance.yahoo.com

General Motors Company sold a record number of Chevy Volts in the month of August. This is not good for the company's bottom line, however, as GM is losing as much as $49,000 on each Volt sold, according to industry analysts and manufacturing experts. GM is estimated to be years away from making money on the Volt, and will soon face new competition from Ford, Honda, and others. The Volt's steep ($39,995) base price and complex technology have kept buyers away from Chevy showrooms.
