Submission + - When a primary source isn't good enough- Wikipedia-> 4

unixluv writes: Evidently, Wikipedia doesn't believe an author on his own motivations when trying to correct an article on his own book, claiming they need "secondary sources". I'm not sure where you would go to get a secondary source when you are the only author of a work.

Submission + - Sex with Robots?

unixluv writes: "Are we nearing a future that includes having sex with robots ala Bladerunner? Some seem to think so. David Levy has caused a stir with his book 'Love and Sex with Robots'. More discussions have followed with an interview with the author. Maybe we should find a better term than sex robot or replicant? How about RealDoll? These and these are not your dad's blowup dolls."

Submission + - Is ISP Web Content Filtering Here? 1

unixluv writes: "An ISP is testing web content filtering and content substitution software, see http://lauren.vortex.com/archive/000337.html. While it seems innocent enough, is this the wave of the future? Will your ISP censor your web experience? Now consider it in the context of The MPAA asking for ISP Content Filtering on /. this week. Is the RIAA next? Will this spawn a war of web tools to circumvent ISP tools?"
