Most Americans have long ago given up fighting the notion that their behavior is tracked by advertisers as they move around the web. The subject of our children’s privacy, on the other hand, remains a political and cultural firestorm.

After an online search, he found his subjects in, of all places, Utah. He ventured to the the town of Samak in northeastern Utah, where he spent the weekend with residents of the fantastical land of Palanthar. He photographed Arcadius Valden, a wizard; Dr. Victor von Vargas; a traveling medicine man, and Sunddrek; an elf warrior; among others as they discussed magic and mystery as part of their ongoing live action role-playing game, or LARP.
But most glitchers aren’t cheaters, Hunt said. They’re just avid gamers hungry for new experiences and the respect of their peers. “People have played a game enough that they know the ins and outs of normal gameplay, and they’re trying to find something new,” Hunt said. “The other part of it is they want to be recognized – they want to have their name posted somewhere.”
“People jump through hoops to do business with Wal-Mart all the time,” said Robert Hetu, an analyst with the research firm Gartner Inc. “That should absolutely accelerate the competition from Azure.”
They met for lunch. Manisha and her mother on one side of the table, Ritesh and her father on the other. And at the head of the table—surprise, surprise—a special guest who ‘just happened’ to drop by. The numerologist.
According to a letter that an FTC lawyer wrote in 1999 to a Dallas investigating firm, a reporting agency that uses stored data for background checks is clearly breaking the law if it doesn’t immediately update its data from public records before it reports the information to employers or notify applicants when it provides the public record information report to employers.

Creating the map consumed a year and cost $3.5 million, with help from Microsoft and the University of Vermont. Allenby’s team pored over aerial imagery, road maps, and zoning charts to establish rules, classify objects, and scrub errors. “As soon as we finished the first data set,” Allenby says, “everyone started asking ‘when are you going to do it again?’” to keep the map fresh.

You know those neighbors. The ones you see out in their backyard, picking their homegrown cherry tomatoes from their bountiful garden as you schlep off to the grocery store to buy the same exact thing…in a plastic box. What if instead of feeling guilty about the waste you’re about to add to the environment (not to mention your comparative laziness), you could just pay your neighbor for a serving of locally grown vegetables? That’s the idea behind Kayleigh Thompson’s new concept, Hyperlocal Market. Thompson is a recent design graduate from the Royal College of Art in London, but before moving to the city, she lived in a small town where locally sourced food was commonplace and interacting with the people who lived next door wouldn’t earn you the title of “that annoying neighbor.” “I wanted to challenge the way we consume food in London,” she said. “Originally coming from a small rural village in Yorkshire, my experience of how I buy and consume food has dramatically changed since moving to the city.”
Manisha tried to guess what air-related reading the woman had gotten. Engine failure. Improperly stowed tray table. Single-serving salted peanuts. No, wait, they don’t serve those anymore.
