No, this isn't Photoshop. This is the Arctic right now.

Sea ice levels over great swathes of the Arctic ocean are at historic lows (in the 40-year-long satellite record) for this time of year.

Hackers, Freedonians and Everyone Else...

You may not know me but I produce and edit a Free Software podcast called Libre Lounge. I want to take the podcast in some new directions, either LL itself, or a new podcast with a similar aim, but to do that, I'm going to need some help- production and editing especially. If you have those kinds of skills and can help, please send me a direct message or email me at emacsen@emacsen.net!

I missed this Microsoft blog post last month. Their data show that the FCC estimate of the number of Americans without broadband access is very low. FCC says 7.5% of Americans lack broadband, based on polling. Microsoft estimates, based on their usage data, that 49.5% of Americans lack broadband!

They make suggestions for how the FCC can improve their methodology.

For some reason I'm just noticing Wikipedia edit tags for the first time.

They are little labels that automatically get assigned to an edit.

Since January there's one for anonymous edits from Congress. Thanks @legoktm!

Do people have success with scuttlebutt (manyverse) or any similar social networking alternatives? I like the fact that they don't rely on centralized servers (yet another account) but it feels like the friction might be too high for my friend groups... Any success stories?
