Here is the original Wash Post op ED on the police mindset. http://t.co/ZE62LxN3CB Very reasonable and not at all like the link bait versionapologies for retweeting. You are right. That quote was taken very much out of context. The original article is quite reasonable.@nytimes cartoon on #Ferguson http://t.co/P08kf2oAGE The new Miranda warning. Militarization of police in US must stop!
@anildash Yes. Talking about America as a police state, and how we have our own version of the "sectarian violence" we deplore elsewhereLA drivers are crazy! While waiting to cross Wilshire, I saw two drivers honk and gun it to race past people turning as the light changed!
An Uber API makes you wonder what would be possible if every other previously under-leveraged resource became programmable.

@rubyweb Thanks for the heads up!OpenBCI: Brain-Computer interfaces made easy, DIY http://t.co/eBF8TbwVxq via @jennwebb@brunes @LisaSpangenberg That is an artifact of Amazon discounting, not something publishers do!@lucasarruda @LisaSpangenberg That's more than 3x printing costs.@lucasarruda @LisaSpangenberg Distribution costs unchanged.

MT @McCormick_Fdn: Is it time for #Civics and #CivicEngagement to become a priority? http://t.co/FF3r0w0d41One of the great Twitter threads of history. https://t.co/R0NEulrH8g
Retweeted by Tim O'Reilly@edemeulle @LisaSpangenberg Outsiders vastly overestimate % of list price that goes to printing. Discount given to Amazon is 3x printing!@edemeulle @LisaSpangenberg Meanwhile, re "No excuse", costs are closer than you think. Printing savings offset by higher author royalties.@edemeulle @LisaSpangenberg No question that low prices can increase impulse buys. But by how much? The devil is in the details.@timoreilly Really wish people would stop asserting that ebooks are cheaper. Most of the cost in making book is acquisition and editing.
Retweeted by Tim O'Reilly@Arthur99100 Manufacturing cost is about 15% of a paperback. Larger ebook royalties make costs more comparable than most think.@matthew_kelsey I don't know that I agree with that.Reflections on education from Tricia Kelleher @StephenPerse, inspired by her visit to #scifoo http://t.co/Pn64p8fzA6 A good read
