Google's CEO: 'The Laws Are Written by Lobbyists' - Derek Thompson - Technology - The Atlantic

"The average American doesn't realize how much of the laws are written by lobbyists"
Yeah, thats true - people probably don't understand that. Congressional offices don't have enough staff to write the reams of legislation they put through. Those guys are merely a deliberative power brokering process. The actual law writing gets done across the street by lawyers who, incidentally, make a lot more money. People talk shit about lobbyists, but lobbyists are basically how laws get made. Should Congress employ more staff and pay them more? If they tried, everyone would be up in arms that they are becoming corrupt! For all the talk about "special interests" I'm not aware of anyone who has a serious proposal for an alternative.
But this article has more juicy nuggets:
"Google policy is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it," he said. Google implants, he added, probably crosses that line.
At the same time, Schmidt envisions a future where we embrace a larger role for machines and technology. "With your permission you give us more information about you, about your friends, and we can improve the quality of our searches," he said. "We don't need you to type at all. We know where you are. We know where you've been. We can more or less now what you're thinking about."
Researchers publish comprehensive study on sexual behavior and health of Americans ages 14-94
2:01 am EDT, Oct 5, 2010
About 85 percent of men reported that their partner had an orgasm during their most recent sexual encounter, but only 64 percent of women report having had one. Researchers said the difference is too great to attribute to men having had their last encounter with another man.
Eight percent of men and 7 percent of women identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual, but a much higher percentage report engaging in sexual activity with someone of the same sex at least once. The study found that 15 percent of men aged 50-59 have received oral sex from another man at some point.

Hunter S. Thompson's brutally honest Canadian job request
7:24 pm EDT, Oct 4, 2010
As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. If this is what you're trying to get The Sun away from, then I think I'd like to work for you.
Google is introducing a new format for images: WebP.
Images on the web in this format — which CNET reports will be officially announced later today — will have smaller file sizes, load faster and relieve a lot of overclocked networks. They won’t necessarily look better — WebP images are as “glossy” as JPEGs — but the files might be around 40% smaller than JPEG files.
