Nice write up by Scott Thill — he asked us some of the best questions we’ve ever been asked by an interviewer. Check out the link for the interview.

Indeed, this was a really fun and stimulating interview. I encourage you to check it out!

If media conglomerates as massive as Time Warner and Fox need to get bigger to combat the power of Comcast, what do you suppose that means for the much smaller Web-based services that will be fighting for the necessary bandwidth to survive?

Comcast is going to destroy the Internet. (via wilwheaton)

Sounds like it’s time to break up some monopolies and start enforcing the Sherman Anti-Trust Act again

I’m just sayin’

That sound you’re hearing is the sound of SHOTS BEING FIRED

This picture, taken at a presentation by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, has gone viral on Twitter in the wake of emergency legislation being pushed through parliament.

Metadata is often dismissed by politicians because it doesn’t include the content of a phone call or email, only basic details such as when the conversation took place and who it involved. But this picture demonstrates why it is important.

It comes as the government rushes through an emergency bill to force mobile phone companies and internet providers to record the metadata of citizens’ communications.

The draft legislation was introduced yesterday with cross-party support and MPs are expected to pass the bill on Tuesday.

NOTICE

deantrippe:

If women and minorities taking on major superhero character roles (while the main characters are still prominently featured and going on new journeys) is offensive to you: PLEASE JUST UNFOLLOW THIS BLOG. No need to reblog me just to complain about “political correctness” and “pandering” and both of them being “shoved down your throat.” Write your own post. I’m not interested in your note.

On the subject of Falcap, specifically: Were you whining when Bucky Barnes took over the job? Do you even read the comics? You loved Captain America: The Winter Soldier, though, right? So maybe there’s a reason why this particular change is getting under your skin. Sam Wilson will be the seventh person in Marvel Universe continuity to be called Captain America. And he’ll be awesome.

If you can’t like Captain America anymore because he’s black, there’s a word for that.

Full Trailer: ‘Big Hero 6' - Nov 7

If you kill a person, you’re a murderer. If you steal, no one would hesitate to call you a thief. But in America, when you force yourself on someone sexually, some people will jump through flaming hoops not to call you a rapist.

As reported by Al Jazeera America, colleges across the country are replacing the word “rape” in their sexual assault policies with “non-consensual sex” because schools don’t want label students “rapists”.

If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.

And by probably I mean definitely.

  • Abraham Lincoln never fought vampires or zombies 
  • Adolph Hitler was not machine gunned to death in a movie theater in Paris
  • Marty McFly did not invent Rock and Roll
  • Richard Nixon never dispatched Dr. Manhattan to end the Vietnam War

You never complained about these changes to history, so shut the fuck up about a black man playing a fictional spy, you idiotic, racist pricks.
