Picking their scabs: The Seattle Times, one of two Seattle newspapers embroiled in a month-long strike, said Wednesday that it plans to begin hiring permanent replacements for striking workers. The Post-Intelligencer said it was considering a similar move.
One unanswered question is how the Taliban accessed the Internet from within Afghanistan at all.

I’m happy to say I feel I finally found my new home in a Virtual Worlds company called Kitely.
Trello, an early Unsplash partner, already does this. It lets users add background photos to Trello boards, and it built the search feature into the slider menu on every board—exactly the kind of integration the API released Tuesday will allow.

By Monday afternoon, “nearly all” translated into roughly 90 percent, according to Bob Visse, MSN product manager. Those lucky few will find their MSN Messenger behaving as normal – except that one in ten of their contacts will be listed as being offline.
“On the Internet my work would be worth 100 times more. And on the Internet there is never a rainy season,” said Sojuel, whose husband, a bean farmer, was tortured and shot by Guatemalan soldiers during a bloody 36-year civil war that killed 200,000 Guatemalans.
The company uses three separate server farm locations for events like the U.S. Open, in case there is a problem with one of the networks. Technicians can take an entire farm offline and still have one running system and one backup system.
