The Deletionist Wars on Wikipedia make visible the underlying culture wars that impact so many parts of our lives, our laws, our media and the way we think. Technology can't fix us. We have to fix ourselves.
While all eyes are on London for the Diamond Jubilee and the Summer Olympics, here are a bunch of royal getaways that you don't want to miss.
Kate and William may be having a small, intimate celebration to mark their first anniversary -- but that's no reason to stop you having a proper feast.

It's like being a proud B-cup and finding only push-ups when you go bra shopping. If you have small breasts, you must want bigger ones; if you don't have a man, you must want one.
We give you the definitive retrospective of the most significant year in recent memory, 12 powerful months marked by fighting for freedom, protesting inequality, watching in awe the fury of nature and wincing at sex and abuse scandals.
