Image source

Whats New? covering whats new in tech- can you fathom getting rid of your smart phone…

It’s a small wireless modem that gives you broadband access to the Internet via the 3G network.

When combined with an iPod touch (or tablet) the Mi-Fi makes a brilliant "only when required" mobile internet connection. The battery lasts 8 hours, and you can recharge it on a USB port.

Looking for Meaning in Awakening

Image source

One traveler’s tale into the outskirts of Japan and being awake…

Do you know what your goal is in life? Or do you know what it’s like to search for one? I sure as hell haven’t found my goal yet, but I’ve travelled a slight bit around the world (if you can call it that) and my way of traveling usually means that I encounter interesting souls. Uninteresting souls too, of course. One thing I’ve noticed is that it’s always quite easy to recognize people who have ‘awakened’, so to speak. This ‘awakening’ is impossible for me to define, but I hope I can at least convey a part of the concept. Awakened people are people who have thought about life and have realized that they have many choices. And they’re not entirely sure that the choice they’re currently on is the right one. They’re aware of their place in life, and their own (in)significance. All this sounds a bit silly, but condense these sentences and a whole lot more similar sentences into a concept in your mind, and you will be able to classify people into two groups: those who are awake, and those who aren’t.

Blogger Fined

Libel and creating a "defamation zone" these are the charges brought against Johnny Northside. Read below for part of the story:

Moore, after being fired by the Jordan Area Community Council in January 2009, was hired at the U of M’s Urban Research and Outreach/Engagement Center to study mortgage foreclosures. When Hoff found out, he wrote a post accusing Moore of being involved in a "high-profile fraudulent mortgage," one of several that resulted in a 16-year prison sentence for former real estate agent Larry Maxwell. Moore was not charged in the Maxwell case.

Hoff said he told the truth and had documentation.

District Judge Denise Reilly threw out four of the five statements, saying they were either opinion or the comments of others on the blog. With respect to the remaining statement, the jury agreed with Clark’s claim that Hoff had committed "tortious interference" by meddling with Moore’s employment. Clark pointed out to the jury that Hoff, in a later blog post, took partial credit for Moore’s firing. (Source)

Tufts Fail

YouTube Preview Image

A couple of weeks ago we had Entrepreneur Fail, so to get going this new feature ‘fail’ we’re writing about the school Tufts University located outside of Boston- they canceled their naked quad run after years of tradition and exploits. Sources say the police were "uncomfortable" about the event.

Fair compromise: drunk Tufts kids can run drunk and naked through the quad while cops compete to see who can hit the most students with a Taser. Everyone wins.
