Liam Stacey wrote vile things. But do you know why he went to jail? "All the TV and newspaper reporters, columnists and opiners quoted his first tweet ("LOL f*** Muamba. He's dead. #Haha" – Stacey didn't use asterisks) and referred vaguely to "racist tweets" after that. But what were they? Did the reporters know but choose delicately not to repeat them? Or did they not know? Do the columnists who applaud the sentence know? Or have they – as I suspect – just seen the bowdlerised media, like the rest of us, and are satisfied with the hazy summary? What terrifies me is that people are nodding happily all over the country, pleased to see a clampdown on internet trolling at last...Anyone who's pleased to see a person jailed for a piece of writing, without bothering to seek out the precise words that were deemed illegal, should be ashamed of themselves." #liam #stacey #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #media #democracy #politics #troll #outrage #blind #web #social #twitter #vulgar #uk #pub
The reddit discussion thread with over 1000 comments relating to The Guardian's decent, but still pandering or conservative article about Liam Stacey. Ridiculous that this guy is going to jail in a first world country like the UK. #politics #reddit #outrage #discussion #debate #social #media #twitter #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #democracy #failure #blind #troll #web #vulgar #uk #pub
Made by a Hacker News member. He just charges the initial cost of the app, under $5 as a one-time fee and then everything else is free [for now]. As long as you don't abuse, he lets you freely use API and/or use as many pushes as you want. You can pay the $5 for other people via application. Guessing this gives it like normal, so it'll be for whatever platform. #growl #syncing #push #mobile #iOS #android #notifications #hacker #news #member #$kippt_bookmark_lists #push_notifications #apps #mobile_apps #web_apps #APIs #API_driven #ecosystems #SaaS #pub
Guy seems quite "off". Crazy even. Rambles on about suicides in the AI community and Google having a perhaps implicit role in it all or something #Social #news #crazy #interesting #suicides #death #conspiracy #cover #up #unsure #pub

Summary: CVS pharamacist thinks the prescription is a fake. She arrives at CVS with crutches and an IV sticking out of her arm. An officer is there who arrests her saying the pharamacist hasn't made a mistake before and sticks her in jail overnight. Next day it is found she is innocent. So now she's obviously suing CVS. Though really the cops are just as wrong. Basically acted like the local CVS/pharamacists [paid] arms. -- Anyway, the comments are mainly filled with people angry at the cops, CVS, and the pharmacist. Many comments calling them idiots, power hungry, etc. But really, this stuff wouldn't be such an issue if we didn't have so many restrictions and laws in place with drugs. #politics #drugs #pharmacy #police #laws #news #corruption #status_quo #pub

"CEO Shane Smith's goal of "total media domination" took a major step forward on Thursday with the announcement that Vice had raised $500 million in funding evenly split from A&E Networks and technology investment firm Technology Crossover Ventures (TCV). ... A&E and TCV each took 10% stakes in Vice, valuing the Brooklyn-based company at $2.5 billion. ... The move paves the way for Vice to appear on television screens across the U.S. A&E, a joint venture between Disney and Hearst Ventures, operates 10 cable channels including some with broad distribution. A move into television beyond its HBO show is seen as a natural move for Vice. ... Vice has enjoyed a meteoric rise in value in the past year. The company had taken no known major investments until August 2013, when 21st Century Fox took a 5% stake that valued the company at $1.4 billion." #funding #media_companies #money #news #valuations #web_2.0 #pub
