None of this is to say that technology can’t be an important communication channel between the public and elected officials, or that it doesn’t intensify political conversations about issues that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. And PlaceAVote may very well serve both of those purposes, even if it doesn’t influence how Congressmen vote. “We’re ok with that,” Davis says. “It’s 1,000 times better than [Congressmen] who don’t want to know what their constituents think.”
Aside from its cartridge, pipette, and temperature issues, many of the other technical snafus that plagued the miniLab could be chalked up to the fact that it remained at a very early prototype stage. Less than three years was not a lot of time to design and perfect a complex medical device. These problems ranged from the robots’ arms landing in the wrong places, causing pipettes to break, to the spectrophotometers being badly misaligned. At one point, the blood-spinning centrifuge in one of the miniLabs blew up. These were all things that could be fixed, but it would take time. The company was still several years away from having a viable product that could be used on patients.
The relationship began when Guardian investigative reporter Nick Davies tracked Assange down last June, about two months after WikiLeaks had published its first significant leak -– a classified video showing a U.S. helicopter shooting and killing civilians in Iraq – and shortly after the arrest of suspected leaker Pfc. Bradley Manning. Davies sought out Assange to propose a partnership with the Guardian to publish other documents Assange might possess. He asked Assange for a description of what kinds of documents he had in his cache.

One of them is MFI-Soft. The company’s focus: a vendor of information security and telecommunications “solutions” for law enforcement agencies, VoIP (or voice over internet protocol) carriers and internet service providers.

TUNIS, Tunisia –- When Zine El Abidine Ben Ali’s dictatorship began unraveling here last month amid violent street protests, Tunisia’s internet administrators saw a massive spike in the number of sites placed on government block lists. But, in contrast to the embattled Egyptian government, the Ben Ali regime never ordered internet and cellphone communications shut off or slowed down, the head of the Tunisian Internet Agency says.
Inside.com went to considerable expense to help draw interest to its webzine by creating a print version.

“There’s a number of other artists who,
despite the fact that they’re signed by a major record company, still have avery substantial problem: being re-signed. And then there’s an enormous groupof artists – the largest group of artists – who heretofore have never been ableto be signed because there’s a significant barrier to entry in the recordedmusic business: the A&R director and the programming director.

What I’m doing is I’m looking for the keyword, ‘press’ on the website: IBM.com. That tells me where their press release section is. Then I go to a press release, and I find out Jane Doe is the media relations person. And it’s email@example.com. So, it’s usually the same thing for the CEO. So you just do first name _ last name @ the company name.com. I’ve found that very short emails, 1- to 3-sentences, are short enough that they can take action on it.
“What’s really fascinating is how often the educated patient makes the exact same decision that I would have for them,” he said.
The crowd was a funny mix of 3,000 or so artists, students, old-schoolers and model types, and Iggy wanted to check everybody out. He asked for the stage lights to shine on the audience with the greeting: “Hey hardcore! Hey debutantes! Hey shy people!”
