Anti-Google Graffiti In NYC

Google’s logo has been showing up around New York City with one very shaming alteration: the two Os in “Google” have been replaced by surveillance cameras.

what is ur stand on SOPA & PIPA?
This is all because of two pieces of legislation: the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House and its Senate companion bill, the Protect IP Act (PIPA). The purpose of these bills is to make it harder for sites — especially those located outside the United States — to sell or distribute pirated copyrighted material such as movies and music as well as physical goods such as counterfeit purses and watches. Even most of SOPA and PIPA’s strongest opponents applaud the intentions of the legislation while deploring what it might actually accomplish.

Although its sponsors have said that they would amend the bill, as currently written, SOPA would enable the U.S. Attorney General to seek a court order to require “a service provider (to) take technically feasible and reasonable measures designed to prevent access by its subscribers located within the United States to the foreign infringing site.” Until this weekend, one of the ways to do that would have been to cut the DNS (domain name server) records that point to the site, but that provision is likely to be removed after the Obama administration weighed in on the issue over the weekend, saying “Any effort to combat online piracy must guard against the risk of online censorship of lawful activity and must not inhibit innovation by our dynamic businesses large and small.” The administration also echoed concerns raised by a number of security experts, including some anti-malware companies that the bill could disrupt the underlying architecture of the Internet.

The White House statement coincided with sponsors agreeing to remove the DNS blocking provisions. Still, the bill could require search engines like Google to delete any links to the sites.

From the iPhone to the Met: Changing The Way We ‘See’ Art Online

http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/google_goggles_met_76000_artwork.php

Smartphone apps like Google Goggles have fundamentally changed the way we look at art, providing instant information about the work itself.

Go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, or the Getty Museum, and download the Google Goggles app for Android or iPhone. Snap a picture of the art that you’re looking at. Goggles will pull up the work of art’s history, bibliography of its creator and perhaps even a story of the collection from the Met’s mobile-optimized website.

Freedom: who could object? Yet this word is now used to justify a thousand forms of exploitation. Throughout the rightwing press and blogosphere, among thinktanks and governments, the word excuses every assault on the lives of the poor, every form of inequality and intrusion to which the 1% subject us. How did libertarianism, once a noble impulse, become synonymous with injustice?

In the name of freedom – freedom from regulation – the banks were permitted to wreck the economy. In the name of freedom, taxes for the super-rich are cut. In the name of freedom, companies lobby to drop the minimum wage and raise working hours. In the same cause, US insurers lobby Congress to thwart effective public healthcare; the government rips up our planning laws; big business trashes the biosphere. This is the freedom of the powerful to exploit the weak, the rich to exploit the poor.”

    Thanks for sharing this… A very astutely argued essay, which leads to a poignant conclusion…

    “Modern libertarianism is the disguise adopted by those who wish to exploit without restraint. It pretends that only the state intrudes on our liberties. It ignores the role of banks, corporations and the rich in making us less free. It denies the need for the state to curb them in order to protect the freedoms of weaker people…”

    The author, George Monbiot, whom I had never heard of before, is one of today's finest activist philosophers. I'll be reading more of his work!

Karl Lagerfeld was a guest @LeWeb this week, a top flight internet conference held in Paris. It’s a scintillating discussion for all fashion+techy+geeks. Notice how everyone applauds for the fact that he owns 4 iPhones….not for the fact that he owns 300k books in his personal library!

Egypt Clashes Enter 3rd Day as Military Faces Pressure—Egypt‘s military rulers struggled Monday to contain an explosion of protests demanding their ouster, as demonstrators clashed for a third successive day with security forces around Tahrir Square and new clashes broke out across the country. The ripples from Egypt’s Arab Spring are far from gone
