Have you paused to consider that this inability of yours to research useful information by yourself, other than through the kindness of strangers here on /. is part of the problem? Your google-foo is deficient & you visibly lack access and/or ambition to use the resources known as libraries. Try working on these points and knowledge & wisdom will come in time.

How do the Strontium and Cesium go away with reprocessing?

10 seconds of your time would have taken you to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N... where you would have discovered that methods have been devised to separate them out and thus in large part detoxify the remaining waste (given that we should already be recovering the other useful elements).

It only "goers" over my head if you're a patronizing dweeb. Dropbox's user base is completely mainstream & not just concentrated on basement libertarian/anarchist dwellers. Dropbox is not git you self deluding twit.

It is not I that is wrapped up in politics, it is the fringe of "I'm not anonymous but I wish I had the balls to be one" activists such as yourself that views life through these distorting glasses. Do I know what corporate boards Condi Rice or to pull someone off the opposite side of the spectrum, George Stephanopoulos is on? No. It's not news for nerds & it doesn't matter.

Does it matter to you? Visibly, yes. but other than for a fringe like Timothy it does NOT interest the rest of us who are nerds but are not left wing fringe activists.

Try using an ipad. You'll find that Beta is being forced upon all ipad users. I've moved to the iPad for most of my web browsing but the /. beta badness means that I don't read /. on it any more. How are you going to react when Beta is forced upon everyone? Will you still be making snide comments about the people that beta has been forced upon? Will you abandon /. like I have on the ipad? Will you explain why you are leaving /. and then abandon it as many are doing?

Or will you appreciate the top notch work that Timothy is doing bringing /. down to a level worthy of digg?

News for nerds, stuff that matters... RIP.

Now it's whipping up mobs and abandoning it's historic readership by forcing beta on us. I've already removed /. from my rotation of news sites on my iPad due to beta being forced upon me there. Looks like I'll need to abandon /. on weekends when Timothy is active.

This map had purpose: to try and shame the countries with a free press that perform mass surveillance, but in particular the US & UK.
The map had a form similar to that of the London tube & DC subway.

That the data used to create the map is based on incomplete and false data is more important to most than that you think the form is inaccurate.

Had the map been labeled in chinese or spanish or some other language on a non-english website, you might actually have a comprehensible point. Given that it is labeled in english where the tube map is a recognizable cultural reference point for a significant part of of the population, all that comes across is your distaste of london or the london tube map.

I've never lived in England yet even growing up in the US I recognized the tube map style as distinctive. Your metaphors may be clear to you, but not to others so labeling them as ignorant when it is you that is being obscure is just ego stroking.

The data used to create it is from Reporteurs sans Frontières. France's DGSE performs the same mass surveillance of the internet & telephone data as the US & UK but nobody talks about it because:
A: It's legal here for the government to snoop on anyone they want. Foreign nationals, French citizens, whatever...
B: The government has a level of control over the press not present in the US/UK and discourages reporters here from talking about it.

RSF knows that this is the case but somehow France is conveniently left off the list of surveillance states? Suuurrree...

On a side note:
I have moved much of my home browsing over to a tablet. Beta is now being foist upon me even when logged in and the /?nobeta=1 URL trick no longer functions. Way to go slashdot, I've been a regular for close to 2 decades but now only visit when sitting down in front of a PC/Mac. Still losing readership? I'm an example.
