I never met Edward Snowden, but I did know quite a bit about Aaron Swartz. In fact, he worked for me, for a period of time, a few years ago. And he was brilliant, as you'll see for yourself. I'm sure that whatever this film may say about him, it can barely do justice to what a special human being he was.
What I don't love is the swarming vehicle that is the Internet. Why is our culture, especially the Internet, so paradoxically hateful? Someone says one thing that might be considered out of line and the Internet goes ape shit on the person.
Having an online presence is now a must-have for real estate agents, developers and sellers, as the sector begins to acknowledge that the Internet is an integral part of the modern house-hunting process for emerging markets.

If advertising of yore tried to prey on insecurities and the psychology of the public, today they're scouring the glut of what we're discussing each day for keywords that might as well be invitations to solicitation.
While I am very much alive, I find it interesting to consider the data trail as a shade: It continues to exist, perhaps forgotten, in cyberspace and meatspace alike and, as with the memories of those who outlive me, the data will remain long after my body does.
Presented by Shared Studios, this canny invention of communication by Yale law student Amar Bakshi disrupts the excesses of Facebook Theater and clever Twitter banter. "The shipping container is a readymade design. It is a relatively inexpensive, uniform space that exists all over the world..."

The race to the White House officially begins today, with Ted Cruz being the first candidate to announce his candidacy for what many expect to be a crowded Republican primary. But already the Ted Cruz camp is playing defense. Behold! www.TedCruz.com.
While these accounts were deleted by Facebook, the actual account creation process has not changed very much, if at all. Programs pass updates to the people who have purchased them, and "likes" sellers simply create more accounts at the click of a button.
Our kids aren't all that different then we were at this age. But their access to social media makes their quickly made decisions capable of being a little bigger, a little louder, have a little more impact, a bigger punch, if you will.
Photos of my immediate family members that had passed away were sent to me with vile messages -- some blaming me for their deaths. I was tweeted pictures of my house, along with messages asking if I would rather be shot or stabbed.

SAN JOSE -- Europe will need a workforce trained for careers in the new digitized economy. It is estimated that Europe will have an e-skills gap that, if filled, could lead to 850,000 potential jobs in 2015, rising to twice that by 2020.
