Submission + - What to do with 40-year-old Cuban air?

KGBear writes: My friend has an old scuba tank that was filled by his father in Cuba, in the 60's. Now he's moving and, being tired of carrying the thing around with him, has given it to me, provided I find something of scientific interest to do with it. Certainly in the /. crowd there is someone who can put old Cuban air to good use?

Submission + - Are governments trying to take over the Internet?

KGBear writes: The last few years have seen a remarkable raise in legislation aimed at controlling what I can do on the Internet. From the grand daddy of them all, the DMCA to the unborn ACTA, the recent passage of the deBill in the UK and recent efforts of all kinds. I think I understand the motivation behind the actions of Iranian, Chinese, and Venezuelan governments; but what of the so-called "free world?" Is it really just clueless politicians falling prey to Hollywood lobbyists or is there some hidden agenda? Maybe the sensible, logical and knowledgeable /. crowd will have some insights I've missed.
