Does Airport Security Really Make Us Safer? →
The short answer is: “No” To walk through an airport with Bruce Schneier is to see how much change a trillion dollars can wreak. So much inconvenience for so little benefit at such a staggering cost. And directed against a threat that, by any objective standard, is quite modest. Since 9/11, Islamic terrorists have killed just 17 people on American soil, all but four of them victims...

From Futility Closet: Moscow’s stray dogs have begun using the city’s subway system. Zoologist Andrey Poyarkov of the Moscow Ecology and Evolution Institute, who has been studying the city’s 35,000 strays for 30 years, says some dogs scavenge downtown during the day and board trains in the evening to travel to industrial complexes in the suburbs, where they sleep.

Louis CK's experiment worked
Louis CK’s experiment worked: I really hope people keep buying it a lot, so I can have shitloads of money, but at this point I think we can safely say that the experiment really worked. If anybody stole it, it wasn’t many of you. Pretty much everybody bought it. And so now we all get to know that about people and stuff. I’m really glad I put this out here this way and...

Link: Bandwidth Hogs Don’t Exist
Christian Sandvig at Social Media Collective: As of this fall AT&T U-Verse has joined my cable Internet provider, Comcast, in imposing bandwidth caps of 250 GB per month on broadband Internet customers.

The new owner shuts the product down and the founders issue a glowing press release about how excited they are about synergies going forward. They are never heard from again. I’d rather pay than see ads, and I’d prefer either over having a cool service get bought out...
