The Future of Ideas
Lawrence Lessig | Submitted by: Soylent
"No modern phenomenon better demonstrates the importance of free resources to innovation and creativity than the Internet.

"Wendell and Cass would be more comfortable in a Greenwich Village one bedroom apartment than their current home at the New York Aquarium.

Racially pure video games
Guardian | Submitted by: Soylent
"One of the games, Ethnic Cleansing, is advertised as the 'most politically incorrect video game ever made.' Players kill black and Hispanic characters before descending into a subway station 'where the Jews have hidden'. Black characters make monkey and ape noises when shot. The advertisement continues: 'Then if your (sic) lucky you can blow away Jews as they scream 'Oy Vey!' on your way to their command centre."
