Study Confirms Tea Party Was Created by Big Tobacco and Billionaire Koch Brothers
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, February 14 2013 @ 01:08 AM EST
A new academic study confirms that front groups with longstanding ties to the tobacco industry and the billionaire Koch brothers planned the formation of the Tea Party movement more than a decade before it exploded onto the U.S. political scene.

Far from a genuine grassroots uprising, this astroturf effort was curated by wealthy industrialists years in advance. Many of the anti-science operatives who defended cigarettes are currently deploying their tobacco-inspired playbook internationally to evade accountability for the fossil fuel industry's role in driving climate disruption.

The study, funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institute of Health, traces the roots of the Tea Party's anti-tax movement back to the early 1980s when tobacco companies began to invest in third party groups to fight excise taxes on cigarettes, as well as health studies finding a link between cancer and secondhand cigarette smoke.

Adobe CEO refuses to answer Australian pricing questions - Youtube 4:05
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, February 14 2013 @ 09:22 AM EST
In a press conference in Sydney today, Adobe chief executive Shantanu Narayen refused to answer questions about how the company can justify charging Australians up to $1,400 more for its traditional software than US residents, instead pushing his view that Adobe's Creative Cloud software, which is broadly harmonised with US pricing, is the future for customers.

An interesting article in the MIT Technology Review discusses how the U.S. government's demand for zero day exploits is making the Web more dangerous for everybody.

So the news we were all dreading came to pass. Opera will drop Presto, in favour of WebKit. Four becomes Three. Only one browser engine remains where the dominant contributions come from an independent vendor who donít have a vested interest in a large native ecosystem. What does this mean for Opera, and the Web at large?

Python Name Under Attack
Authored by: llanitedave on Thursday, February 14 2013 @ 11:11 PM EST
Python Software Foundation seeking help in Europe Seems like a new kind of troll. A UK company wants to trademark the name "Python" for its own software and services. I don't know UK law, but I don't see how a sane judge could possibly agree to this.

Of course we need to communicate -- that goes without saying!
