Podcast: Second Season

Tower of Technobabble - SOPAbox

And we’re back! We kick off season two by following the money in Congress for an Internet-crippling law, look at North Korean brotherly love, find an unfortunately named town in China, learn about trading sex for nuggets, and see what a brother has to do to get a tax break in Kentucky.

• SOPAbox:
– Former Internet Rights supporter Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) gets most money in Senate from Pro-SOPA lobby:
– Former senator — now MPAA head — Chris Dodd is angry the politicians he bought and paid for didn’t follow through:
– Dodd is the target of a petition aiming to investigate him for bribery (which is just good, ol’ fashion lobbying, which, of course, is a form of bribery):

• Town in China gets renamed:

• Kim Jong Un poo poo’d by brother:

• Woman Offers Sex for McNuggets:

• Kentucky education vs religion:

TED Talk – “What does a bill like PIPA/SOPA mean to our shareable world? At the TED offices, Clay Shirky delivers a proper manifesto — a call to defend our freedom to create, discuss, link and share, rather than passively consume.”
