It's the answer told by version 4.0 of The Conversation Prism. It is the only research-driven map that explores the evolution and rise of social media. ...

Share Snowden guilty in court of public opinion
2013-6-26 09:11
He had his chance and he blew it. The NSA’s intrepid whistleblower, who had the biggest non story of the century, is currently thought to be sharing his laptops, phones and hard drives with the Russians, knowingly or not, just like he probably did with the Chinese, knowingly or not. If anyone believes an NSA spy passed through China and Russia without the contents of his person being dipped by the intelligence men in suits then I would suggest a career at McDonalds or Bur ...

Black, gay who cares? But NBA’s $3m pay obscene
This week the sports world was supposedly stunned to discover that the NBA has a basketball player who is black and gay. Shock. Horror. Hold the front page. Black and gay. Who would have thought it? What’s next? A Headline: The US president Barack Obama is secretly gay. Kobe Bryant is bisexual. I would believe it. I would believe anything now knowing the NBA has been secretly courting homosexual Jason Collins &nb ...

The Liver Birds perch on top of the clock towers to look over the River Mersey in Liverpool.

  • NSA surveillance desperately needed to discover why this is news 2014-4-28 05:52

    The White House staff on average prefer decent society. The Obama family and administration are for the middle class, upholding the American principle of each individual having a fair chance to have good results of good work done in an honest trade system. The National Security Agency is for the security of the nation. Canada may be imploding due to Canadians' -- on average -- inability to agree upon something... it's a cultural habit to disagree. Cf the National Energy Programme debates in Pierre Trudeau's era when Canadians would have mutually profited by simply agreeing on something instead of nothing. Who be Edward Snowden? Time will tell.

  • Snowden guilty in court of public opinion 2014-4-27 07:37

    You are an effective writer however Snowden's fate is not necessarily as bleak as you have it seem. It is up to Edward Snowden who got caught stealing and lying. If Edward Snowden corrects his mistakes in public and rebalances his own public accounts by himself, without requesting instructions, and separates wrong from right by himself without needing explanations, he can ask the public to allow for him being able to start to live a new life. We the people know we sometimes do some things in childhood we stop doing when we grow up.
