“I’ll drop-kick a begging gypsy—for scamming people, selling drugs and stealing. I’ll spit into a prostitute’s face. I’ll mace a bum for stinking up the place and spreading disease ...” These words are typical of blog posts by Alexander Bosykh, 33, who has been appointed head of Russia’s Federal Agency for Youth Affairs.

In China, some 'IT expert' utilized hacking technology to break down the internet censorship and upload several information that is forbidden to be accepted in China. Is this hacking behavior symbolized a revolution for freedom, or a potential hazard of digital citizenship?
India's Proposals to UN Can Permanently Endanger Internet & our Freedom of Speech online

Big brother spying. Internet censorship at its finest.
Why are people flipping out over the NSA spying? Your hole life is on the web these days. I could use a baby monitor to hear people's phones'. I am a crazy artist, so they already know I want to take over the world!
The internet & things like Pinterest are an interesting phenomenon. You see the internet as your buffer because it seems to make you anonymous as you watch what people post. You think you're hidden because you don't talk or interact with them directly, but sometimes it's a bit hard to tell .... am I the one that is watching or are others watching ... ME?! Fascinating thought. Interesting dichotomy, isn't it? Sometimes I think it would be easier just to talk to each other but that's just me.

How Illumina's Gene Sequencing Technology Could Transform Health Care
Genome sequencing costs are falling faster than Moore's Law would have predicted.
Here is a wonderful example of inflation. Siince 2001, the cost to transcribe a genome has fallen from 100 million dollars to $1,000. No one knows the price at which it will become the routine first step in a physical exam. No one knows what the health benefits will be, but our cost of living will continue to fall!
