National Public Radio's Digital Makeover
FTA: 'This is an organization that's in transformation into becoming a fully functional news content organization, not just a radio company. As part of that, we've been training our journalists to become multiplatform journalists, not only radio—not that radio is not important to our core.'

Tor: Bridges
Nice...I wasn't aware of the addition of bridges: 'Bridge relays (or "bridges" for short) are Tor relays that aren't listed in the main Tor directory. Since there is no complete public list of them, even if your ISP is filtering connections to all the known Tor relays, they probably won't be able to block all the bridges. ... The addition of bridges to Tor is a step forward in the blocking resistance race

PressThink: "Where's the Business Model for News, People?"
FTA: 'It’s worth going back to the first business model in reportage: the merchants, traders, and other “men of affairs” in early modern Europe who employed letter-writers in cities where the man of affairs did not happen to be located. These letters—the most famous example is the Fugger Letters from the latter 16th century—conveyed much the same news that a trader would want today: prices, conditions for trade and transport, what the local authorities were up to, rumors of war, court news and gossip, natural disasters, and anything the people were seriously buzzed about.'

Darknets and the future of P2P investigators - Ars Technica
FTA: 'LimeWire's new software illustrates a growing trend: "darknets" are becoming simple to setup and use. As millions of people now find that they can easily create their own private share networks, what's in store for content industry investigators who rely on public P2P networks to find suspected file-sharers?'

Joss Whedon's Plan to Monetize Internet Content (Watch Out, Hollywood)
FTA: (Whedon) 'I'm not a business man. I'm also not a techie. My ideas on how to monetize the Internet for independent productions are ideas that other people have already had. But I am in a position to try to take advantage of them in such a way that we get a toehold in this medium and [establish] a system of creating some original content before the giant companies sweep in and fence it all off.'

apophenia: Internet Safety Technical Task Force Report
FTA: 'I'm used to folks dismissing qualitative work because they don't understand it, but I've never before witnessed so many people reject solid quantitative studies done by reputable organizations that are replicated with different sampling techniques across different studies. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect someone to say to me, "Go find other data."...This shouldn't be about whether or not the Internet is "safe" or "not safe" but whether or not the kids are ok. And many of them are NOT ok.'

Locus Online: Cory Doctorow -- Macropayments
Some good points. I've enjoyed watching Cory develop his argument that the whole "information economy" idea in general (including micropayments) is a mostly misapplied metaphor.
