Their whole model was built on the idea that cities would decide to create segway lanes.

Their whole model was built on the idea of having a mass-market outlet to lower the production cost of the underlying technology for use in electric wheelchairs. That line about redesigning cities was Steve Job's.

It's *US*, yes, You and Me, who is responsible for this mess. You see, it's *US* who have allowed the politicians we have elected to carry out all these bullshits.

Nope, MY representative is a good guy. I wrote to the previous guy to see what his position was on this shit, and he told me it smelled like flowers, so I helped someone else get the seat.

radiation maps (and the raw data) from NISA was published regularly.

And radiation maps made by independent organizations showed contamination much worse than the official publications.

I'm not going to research this for you, but plenty of people were saying that the evidence showed meltdown and uncontrolled fission right from the start, and the officials denied it until the end of may.

I keep hearing of complaints about TEPCO misinformation etc. Reading the IAEA and NISA reports has seemed fine to me, where is all this disinformation coming from?

They denied the meltdown for months. They denied the leaks of radioactive material, they denied there was a risk from tsunamis, they just lied about everything for as long as they could.

Amnesty International blasted Assange for repeated leaks where he didn't redact civilian volunteer names, leading to civilian volunteers coming under death threats.


WikiLeaks won Amnesty International 2009 Media Award. That's what the organization thinks of the other organization. What did happen, and you're misremembering it the way t was designed to be misremembered, is that one individual that worked for AI made a comment blasting Assange. That individual did not represent the organization. And the death threats were the same hypothetical threats that were U.S. official FUD all along, nothing real.
