The tremendous success and lightning fast expansion of Facebook empowered the social networking giant with an impressive user base. Needless to say, in a digital world where web traffic equals money, such a user base attracts spammers, virus/spyware seeders, and other ethic-less online marketers like honey would attract flies.

Thanks for a great site which I read daily. I have composed an open letter to Netflix regarding their lack of support for any platform outside of Internet Explorer 6/7 for Windows. I detail their potential lost business, but more importantly, the effect on consumer choice that a company as large as Netflix can have on the community. I go one step further to express how lack of consumer choice keeps companies such as Microsoft producing inferior software, because they know that 'they can.'
Thanks for considering it — hopefully exposure on/. could bring this issue to light and get some things done. Letter is here.

Apparently the algorithm NASA was using the crunch raw climate data suffered from a Y2K bug that skewed the numbers. The operators of climateaudit.org were forced to reverse engineer the algorithm after NASA's James Hansen (best known for his claims of White House censorship) refused to share it. NASA has since admitted to the error and republished the numbers. The changes result in a 1-2% downward correction in overall warming trends. 1934 also surpasses 1998 as the warmest year on record and 5 of the top 10 warmest years in the 20th century occur before WWII."
