+ - Offering wi-fi access as a small business

Submitted by motorsabbath
motorsabbath (243336) writes "We are opening a small business in a downtown area. Metropolitan wi-fi locally ran out of funding and ended. We are considering offering wi-fi access to our customers. If someone commits an "internet nasty" while using our wi-fi, where does the liability lie? No lawyer we ask has any idea. Our ISP has no idea. Anyone here offering wi-fi to customers as a small business? Does one have to use some sort of paywall with a disclaimer to get around legal liability? For the record, these disclaimers never hold up in court...."

jamie writes "A grassroots campaign has begun to get Stephen Colbert to hold a rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to counter Glenn Beck's recent 'Restoring Honor' event. The would-be rally has been dubbed 'Restoring Truthiness' and was inspired by a recent post on Reddit, where a young woman wondered if the only way to point out the absurdity of the Tea Party's rally would be if Colbert mirrored it with his own Colbert Nation.'"

Russian Scholar Warns Of US Climate Change Weapon 415

According to Russian political scientist, and conspiracy aficionado Andrei Areshev the high heat, and poor crop yields of Russia, and other Central Asian countries may be the result of a climate weapon created by the US military. From the article: "... Areshev voiced suspicions about the High-Frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP), funded by the US Defense Department and the University of Alaska. HAARP, which has long been the target of conspiracy theorists, analyzes the ionosphere and seeks to develop technologies to improve radio communications, surveillance, and missile detection. Areshev writes, however, that its true aim is to create new weapons of mass destruction 'in order to destabilize environmental and agricultural systems in local countries.'"

He's dead, Jim.
