Hillary's announcement numbers were revolutionary. They literally redefined the standards for digital politics and came close to rock star status.
This week delivered a prelude to today's announcement of Hillary Clinton's campaign for president, thus beginning our long national nightmare of breathless fluctuations in swing state polls, manufactured scandals, and faux outrage over faux stories.

The publishing industry is reeling today after news broke this morning about Kindle Author, Amazon's new service that automatically generates high-quality fiction using complex software algorithms. It's like Build-A-Bear for ebooks.
Forget the logical, legal and/or political implications of her actions. From a purely technological point-of-view, in a world in which we are all deathly afraid of losing our files to some unforeseen digital disaster, who consciously completely clears two years of emails, forever?
Travel to the origin of chocolate to soak up the culture of cacao and discover how to make it yourself.
Power to the people is a wonderful concept, but total unadulterated power to the masses will always result in an unreliable representation of the truth. It's as simple as pride or ego.
There are some interesting technologies available (and on the horizon) that might provide a solution to the problems related to physically distributing products. In particular, drones and 3-D printers hold a lot of promise in the not so distant future.
