Inside Popcorn Time, the Piracy Party Hollywood Can't Stop posted 03/23/2015, 1:10 PM (Wired)
[Category: Science/Technology]
Popcorn Time was an instant hit when it launched just over a year ago: The video streaming service made BitTorrent piracy as easy as Netflix, but with far more content and none of those pesky monthly payments. Hollywood quickly intervened, pressuring Popcorn Time’s Argentinian developers to walk away from their creation. But anonymous coders soon relaunched the copyright-flouting software. Today, Popcorn Time is growing at a rate that has likely surpassed the original, and the people behind it s... (more)

Yes, North Korea Has The Internet. Here's What It Looks Like. posted 03/23/2015, 1:10 PM (Vox)
[Category: Science/Technology]
North Korea is so paranoid about its citizens accessing the internet that merely owning a computer requires permission from local government authorities, and all personal computers are registered with the police as if they were shotguns. Private ownership of fax machines is banned outright, and sending a single fax requires high-level authorization. Meanwhile, pirated DVDs of South Korean TV dramas are so illegal that North Koreans caught with them in regular police sweeps can be sentenced to ye... (more)

Genetically Engineering Mosquitoes To End Malaria Could Have Unintended Consequences posted 03/20/2015, 1:58 PM (The Independent)
[Category: Science/Technology]
A new way of creating genetically modified insects could wipe out many mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria within a few years but it could also unleash potentially devastating unintended consequences, scientists have warned.

Researchers have devised a method of bypassing a fundamental barrier to the rapid spread of genes within a population. They believe that it could be used to spread malaria-resistant genes in mosquitoes to prevent transmission of disease to people.

The Fiddling with Temperature Data is the Biggest Science Scandal Ever posted 02/09/2015, 5:36 AM (The Telegraph)
[Category: Science/Technology]
When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.

Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on hi

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a story Jan. 16, The Associated Press reported that the odds that nine of the 10 hottest years have occurred since 2000 are about 650 million to one. These calculations, as the story noted, treated as equal the possibility of any given year in the records being one of the hottest. The story should have included the fact that substantial warming in the years just prior to this century could make it more likely that the years since were warmer, because high temperatures tend t...

Neil deGrasse Tyson Attacks 'Startup Culture,' Demonstrates Lack Of Understanding About Innovation posted 10/17/2014, 12:48 AM (Techdirt)

Let me say, first off, that I'm generally a fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson. The guy is obviously super smart, tells very entertaining stories, and, in general, I really like the fact that our culture has turned an astrophysicist into something of a rock star. That's awesome. And I say that even after I read Sean Davis' rather epic takedown of Tyson's apparent penchant for fabricating quotes and stories (when it's not necessary) and bad math (that last one is less forgivable for someon... (more)
What a fascinating takedown of this phony scientist, I hadn't seen any of the articles linked, though I've always despised the man because he's virulently anti-science in the sense he acts as though theories about facts are facts (for example, global warming). I don't necessarily even fault him for his made-up quotes, it can be excused by a faulty memory, on the other hand acting like scientific theories are facts and saying one must believe in them to be considered "pro-science" turns "science" into a religion, when the opposite is the case. Skepticism and the need for absolute proof before belief is a requirement if one is to draw conclusions about what is fact. Scientific theories on the other hand are people's guesses as to the nature of facts, to confuse the two and act as though scientific theories are facts is not to advocate science but it's opposite. - Chris
