Lets say this scenario: you a have few "conflicting" social circles and you are not suppose to have gatherings with one circle or another. You don't want either circle to know you still have social ties with the opposite circle, however they found this out thru the unconsented photo tagging, and causes unwanted "attention"
Well, i guess its quite common in real life as your social circle expands and conflict of interests deemed to arise, but shouldn't new functions make your life easier than causing extra havoc?

+ - Man open sources his genetic data on GitHub-> 2

An anonymous reader writes "There are many services popping up on the Internet allowing you to store data about yourself or the projects you are working on. One of the most popular among the development community is GitHub: a distributed version control system mainly for software development allowing you to share and collaborate with others online.

While GitHub can be paid for as a service for private projects, open source projects get hosted for free. So there is a general mix of both types of project and over 1.7 million repositories currently stored on the service.

Manu Sporny, founder and CEO of Digital Bazaar, has decided to use GitHub to store a project of a very different nature. Rather than a piece of software, he is listing his own genetic data as an open source project. He has released all his rights to the data and made around 1 million of his genetic markers public domain.

As to why he decided to do what many may feel is a risky sharing of data so personal and unique to himself, Manu explains:

        I’ve thought long and hard about each of those questions and the many more that you ask yourself before publishing this sort of personal data. There are large privacy implications in doing this. However, speaking solely for myself, I think the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

Manu hasn’t gone into great detail as to his thought processes yet, but promises to on his blog at a later date."

That was very popular on the Sega Megdrive and Genesis consoles. It was a little bit similar to Super Mario games in the gameplay, but only a little bit, because there was many differences. When you play this game you can control a blue hedgehog character named Sonic. This funny video game's hero can jumping, running fast, rolling fast, etc., that is really great! This game is still popular today by the remakes of the Internet's free online games! SonicGames1.com has a very great collection of online Sonic games on the Internet. All games are free to play here and no need to download, because you can play in your web browser (maybe you need to update your flash player to play these games). You can find a game here what is very similar to the original Sonic the Hedgehog video game, but you can also find here very different online Sonic games too. For example Sonic 3D Snowboard Game or Sonic Tetris Game. They are not similar to the original game, but still very entertaining. The original Sonic was 8 bit game. The players use their skills to control the hero character Sonic. It is very funny to see the game in action. Sonic is moving sometimes very slow, sometimes very fast. You need to collect circles with Sonic, but keep away from the enemies because you can lost your gold circles every time when you don't use your quills to protect yourself (by rolling Sonic). If you would like to play the online game that is very similat to the original Sonic, just open this website and choose the third game named Sonic the Hedgehog Online Game. If you start the game you can choose what character you want to control. You can choose Sonic (like in original), but you can choose Tails, Knuckles and Cream the bunny too. This is great! If you would like to play an online game that is not similar to the original Sonic, just choose for example the Sonic 3D Snowboard or the Sonic Sky Chase in the second page. Sonic Surf, Sonic in Garden and the third paged Sonic Crazy World Games are also very funny. I think this is a great online collection of Sonic Games . The free online games can bring great opportunities to have a quick relax in our sort breaks of work time or our school time. Usually it's easy to find online games what we like, because the Internet has many of them. Just open your web browser, search and play with your favourite online games. Don't forget to have the latest flash player for your browser. Have fun!"

One Night Stands May Be Genetic 240

An anonymous reader writes "So, he or she has cheated on you for the umpteenth time and their only excuse is: 'I just can't help it.' According to researchers at Binghamton University, they may be right. The propensity for infidelity could very well be in their DNA. In a first of its kind study, a team of investigators led by Justin Garcia, a SUNY Doctoral Diversity Fellow in the laboratory of evolutionary anthropology and health at Binghamton University, State University of New York, has taken a broad look at sexual behavior, matching choices with genes and has come up with a new theory on what makes humans 'tick' when it comes to sexual activity. The biggest culprit seems to be the dopamine receptor D4 polymorphism, or DRD4 gene. Already linked to sensation-seeking behavior such as alcohol use and gambling, DRD4 is known to influence the brain's chemistry and subsequently, an individual's behavior."
