Other papers have taken the opposite approach. At the Los Angeles Times, for example, new registrants must give their name, e-mail, address, birth year, phone number, gender and annual household income. DallasNews.com, the website of The Dallas Morning News, which has a similarly lengthy registration page, also asks readers about their hobbies and interests.

O’Reilly was standing a few feet from Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page this past May, at a small cocktail reception for the press at the annual Google I/O conference—the centerpiece of the company’s year.

Writing in a blog post on the game’s website, studio head David Anfossi cites polish as the reason for the delay, stating that “it will require more time in tuning, iterations, and refinement to meet our high standards.”
And that’s exactly what the Engelstein family did. The above-pictured sensors minigame represents the more casual end of the Space Cadets spectrum, where a player must use his senses to feel shapes in a bag and pull out the right ones. In the weapons game, a player solves small puzzles to load the torpedo tubes and flicks a disk to fire the weapons, hoping to land that disk as far along a damage track as possible without going off the board.
Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it wasn’t that it lacked punch, maybe there was no need to collectively champion or salivate over The Deuce because we simply don’t need to anymore. It could be that TV’s in the best state it’s ever been. There’s something for everybody—bona fide character depictions, empathetic storylines, relatable themes. The moments have become so normalized that they too have become unrecognizable.
This week, BitTorrent rival Azureus announced that it had partnered with several media companies to stream HD movies over BitTorrent networks. The Azureus client, while robust, uses a much larger code base, making it more difficult to run on smaller devices like handhelds or mobile phones.
Over two hundred books, prints, drawings, and other art objects portraying the human body are on sale today in New York City at Christie’s, one of the world’s top art auction houses. We’re talking about some of the first anatomically correct images of the human body from the time when “physician” was often synonymous with “grave robber” since it was illegal to dissect any cadaver other than those of executed criminals and those were often hard to come by.
Research in Motion has had a rough year. The BlackBerry PlayBook launched in April to lackluster reviews, a release riddled with executive missteps and most importantly, a poor selection of apps.
Another issue is that websites and mobile app developers have created web pages or apps based on connection speeds from their native countries. As a result, many of those apps and websites won’t be able to meet users’ requests and demands in Rio. Jones cites popular ridesharing app Uber and how European and U.S. visitors will find calling a car to be a difficult process given slow connection speeds.
“This is a warning to the tyrants of this country and other countries that support such criminal disasters with injustice and oppression,” they went on to write. “We invite all anti-tyranny hacker groups all over the world to join this movement.

The network picture is actually a bit murkier than that. You’ll only be able to watch live, prime-time programming if you live in a major city where the networks own their local stations. If they’re affiliate owned, you’ll only be able to watch on-demand replays the following day, according to The Verge.

Here’s another find from my library—but this one is a new book. April and Esme are tooth fairies, off to deliver their first tooth. It’s a very cute story that puts them in the modern world with cell phones and highways and anxious parents, and I think the story does a great job of portraying a modern tooth fairy family in a very sweet way.

“But this is simply bizarre,” defense attorney H. Dean Steward argued in a written brief (.pdf) filed Sunday. “[Megan] had committed suicide, and Drew logically feared that the account could connect Grills and her to the suicide. As Drew learned, the connection to the suicide would trigger extraordinary public approbation. … Drew has not received hate mail and threats by people furious that she violated MySpace’s Terms of Service. To put it simply, it is completely absurd to think that Drew acted as she did because she feared that it might be revealed that she violated the Terms of Service of a website.”
Both Twitter Inc and Facebook recently detected and disclosed that suspected Russian operatives, working for a content farm known as the Internet Research Agency in St. Petersburg, Russia, used their platforms to purchase ads and post content that was politically divisive in a bid to influence Americans before and after the November 2016 presidential election.

A second former Blackbird employee, however, tells Danger Room that he repeatedly went “outside the wire” in Iraq to search for the missing. This ex-employee not only claims that he was in on the manhunt for Issa Salome, the Iraq-American contractor kidnapped in January 2010, he also says he was part of the team that eventually recovered the remains of Capt. Scott Speicher, the U.S. Navy pilot shot down in Iraq during the Gulf War. These assertions could not be independently verified.

While the book takes a wide look at the subject of steampunk, with coverage of the inspirations, the fashions, the fiction (books and comics), the movies, and the art, for me… it’s all about the essays. Wonderful essays on everything steampunk, written by well-known names in the movement who are living steampunk every day – Jake von Slatt, Sean Orlando, Catherynne M. Valente, and more.
