Obama’s expansion of the surveillance state

Julian Sanchez has an excellent piece over at The American Prospect on the Obama administration’s surveillance power grab:
At issue is the scope of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's power to obtain information from "electronic communications service providers" using national security letters (NLS), which compel private companies [...]

True/Slant, an incredible news site with an amazing team, is closing up shop soon. I was privileged to be part of that team on the night the site launched last year and to be among the site's talented cadre of writers, many of whom are saying "Goodbye" here. I have been [...]

Good (not bye)

True/Slant began on July 1, 2008.  Lewis, Coates and I sat in a room with nothing but an idea. We got to work (collecting Steve and Michael on the way) and on April 8, 2009 we launched our alpha site. Twelve hours later we were called boring by Business Insider's Dan Frommer. [...]

Well, hello, Columbus. ( Click here if you’re not a Philip Roth fan.) Some people were surprised when Columbus, Ohio, appeared on the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) list of the top twenty-two energy “Smarter Cities,” sharing the spotlight with towns better known for their deep green glow.

The duct-tape wallet

As the T/S farewells pile up, and tears are shed and toasts are made (midnight July 31 is endgame; even Gawker gave kudos), I have realized one thing about all my outdoorsy bloggin': I never once talked about duct tape. The reason being is that duct tape is as regular as [...]

Arizona now toughest in the nation - on energy efficiency

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
While the national media are focused on Arizona because of the state's controversial immigration law, there was virtually no coverage of a momentous leap in an area President Obama himself has declared "sexy." I'm talking about Arizona's adoption, Tuesday, of a toughest-in-the-nation rule on energy efficiency. The new rules require state-regulated utilities [...]

Mark Zuckerberg may be regretting his decision to keep his Facebook profile privacy settings so low. Last month, Mark Zuckerberg announced in a status message that his new iPhone wasn't rocking his world. He wrote on his Facebook wall, "This week I got an iPhone. This weekend I got four chargers [...]

The stupidity of crowds helps kill a planet

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Passing climate-change legislation should have been a no-brainer. If our broken political system blocked a carbon-tax (even something as sensible as a carbon tax made revenue-neutral by tax swapping with something like reduced payroll taxes) then a market-based cap-and-trade system should have been a near unanimous choice. The science and [...]
