Power Generating Mushrooms in New Mumbai on Vimeo: During the Indian Civil War, the Dharavi slums of Mumbai were flooded with refugees looking to escape the conflict. The Mumbai authorities, distracted by defence of the city and facing an already over-populated and poverty stricken slum could do little to maintain a semblance of civilised life in the area. Sometime later a cache of biological samples appeared through the criminal networks of Mumbai, in the vain hope that it might provide new marketable narcotic opportunities. The collective drive and expertise of the refugees managed to turn theses genetically-engineered fungal samples into a new type of infrastructure - providing heat, light and building material for the refugees. Dharavi rapidly evolved it's own micro-economy based around the mushrooms. This documentary tells the story of some of the characters involved from Mumbai and the rest of the world and how Dharavi came to be such a unique place.

Shareable: The Artistic Case for Abolishing Copyright: It's not that I don't think that musicians, songwriters and composers should be compensated. But I don't think it has anything to do with ownership. These are not things that are owned by the composer; they're simply things that are created by the composer, and there should be credit assigned to that labor and that imagination. At the same time, the way the system excludes many of the people that are actually necessary to the creative process, but never get credit.

DefCon 20 Badges, the Big Reveal: A Secret Society, Crypto Challenges and Easter Eggs | Threat Level | Wired.com: As talks at the DefCon hacker conference have become increasingly sophisticated and technical over the con's two decades, the conference badge has evolved to keep pace, morphing from simple PVC and metal plates into electronic gizmos with chips, circuit boards and games begging to be hacked.
So this year [Ryan Clarke (aka LostboY, or LosT for short)] designed an electronic badge that includes an embedded game. But figuring out the badge's secrets requires hardware and software hacking skills, as well as puzzle and crypto acumen appealing to the math and language geeks in the crowd. His plan is to force attendees with different skills to combine their talents to crack the badge's mysteries.
