Oil Wars on Vimeo: In recent months we've seen a spate of assertions that peak oil is a worry of the past thanks to so-called "new technologies" that can tap massive amounts of previously inaccessible stores of "unconventional" oil. "Don't worry, drive on," we're told.
We can fall for the oil industry hype and keep ourselves chained to a resource that's depleting and comes with ever increasing economic and environmental costs, or we can recognize that the days of cheap and abundant oil (not to mention coal and natural gas) are over.
Unfortunately, the mainstream media and politicians on both sides of the aisle are parroting the hype, claiming – in Obama's case – that unconventional oil can play a key role in an "all of the above" energy strategy and – in Romney's – that increased production of tight oil and tar sands can make North America energy independent by the end of his second term.

Sascha Lobo: Das Internet ist nicht schuld! - SPIEGEL ONLINE: Die derzeitigen Gefechte um das Netz - von Internetsucht bis Leistungsschutzrecht - werden getrieben von Vermutungen und Behauptungen. Sie werden geprägt von Leuten, die sich schlicht weigern, die Funktion und die Bedeutung des Internet für eine digital geprägte Generation zu erfassen. Dabei geht es trotz des Begriffs "Generation" nicht nur um das Alter, denn das Internet ist eine Haltungsfrage und keine Altersfrage.

What Is Value? What Is Money? | Conversation | Edge: What is value about? and how do we measure value? Traditionally, the way of measuring value has been not been through measures of value, but actually through measures of appropriation: measures of the amount of money that you can appropriate through that business, not the value that it generates in society. We're starting to see this difference.

In Search of the Living, Purring, Singing Heart of the Online Cat-Industrial Complex | Underwire | Wired.com: The obvious place to begin an inquiry into the Internet cat is with Maru, the most famous feline on the Internet. Maru"s shtick, in brief: Maru gets into a box ("大きな箱とねこ," 8.1 million views). Maru gets into a box ("箱とねこ8. A box and Maru 8," 3.1 million views). Maru gets into some boxes ("いろいろな小さ過ぎる箱とねこ. Many too small boxes and Maru," 7.9 million views). Maru tries to get into a box ("入れない箱とねこ. The box which Maru can"t enter," 2.2 million views).
Maru, which means "circle" or "perfection" in Japanese, is a Scottish fold with nonfolded ears. He is 5 years old and lives in an undisclosed Japanese city that is, by consensual rumor, almost certainly not Tokyo, because no indoor cat in Tokyo has that much space to jump into boxes, especially not the bigger ones. Maru has upwards of 168 million YouTube views and, according to other rumors, has generated enough ad revenue to buy his owner a new apartment. His is the seventh-most-subscribed YouTube channel in Japan.
