Frames Made With Flames!

... and I bring you ... fire! Before I teach you to burn, it's probably a good idea to say: Do this outdoors, with a bucket of water near by just in case you overdo it. This will generate a fair bit of smoke, and possibly the odd unexpected flames. Also, practice first on some offcuts of the SAME piece of wood to get a feel for the timing, and to see what the effect will be like. Woods vary, and it's hard to know exactly how it will turn ou...

New 'The Mist' trailer is a friggin' gorefest

Wow. If you expected The Mist, the Stephen King novella-based TV show which hits Spike on June 22, to be tamer then the 2007 movie of the same name, think again.  The new trailer for the show is an absolute gorefest, with enough violence to put Doom to shame and enough missing eyeballs to scare away...well, anyone who doesn't like missing eyeballs.   The premise is the same as in King's novella (and the movie, which is unrelated t...

Emmanuel Macron and how political campaigns will never be the same

Emmanuel Macron has been elected as the president of France. While you’ll be able to read plenty of profiles about him over the next few days, I wanted to use this opportunity to look back at the campaign and how technology has profoundly changed politics. Every major campaign brings its set of changes. Barack Obama used big data and micro-targeting in his 2008 campaign. Then social networks became a great way to address messages to v...

A ‘fake news’ crackdown could follow Macron’s election win in France

Some in Silicon Valley breathed a sigh of relief as French voters overwhelmingly backed Emmanuel Macron as their next president over the far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen. Whether that’s short-lived, however, depends on what Macron meant when he pledged to “regulate the internet” this month. In the final days of a blistering campaign, Macron found himself on the defensive against the elusive, conspiring forces of “f...

Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

We've got a double winner on the insightful side this week, with PaulT taking both the first and second places spots. In first place is his response to our thoughts on why Netflix was unconcerned about the hacker trying to extort them by threatening a leak : "That, in turn, is largely because Netflix's flat-rate, relatively-inexpensive pricing model provides enough value that users don't find piracy to be the superior alternative (read: the...

Why are some of sci-fi’s beloved female leads deadly, beautiful, and hopelessly naive?

Tron: Legacy’s Quorra and The Fifth Element’s Leeloo have a few things in common, despite their films being separated by 13 years. Both serve as supporting roles to fairly generic heroes; both are fierce and capable in combat; both have haircuts that would make the average person look incredibly stupid; and both are inexplicably wide-eyed about the world. Jonathan McIntosh, who goes by Pop Culture Detective on YouTube, published...

While You Were Offline: Um, Steve, Your Whiteboard Is Showing

Was it only just last week that folks were debating the quality of the first 100 days of the Trump administration? It seems so long ago. Remember those days when everyone wasn’t talking about health care? Good times, people. Good times. Is it our age or the state of current events that makes it feel as if time is speeding up? Perhaps it’s the internet. It moves so fast that it’s impossible to keep pace. That’s why we...

Alien: Covenant May Be the Biggest Disappointment of the Summer

Here’s a sentence I’m just incredibly sad to type: Alien: Covenant is bad. It’s not terrible. Director Ridley Scott didn’t make some kind of hugely annoying, incoherent movie or anything like that. There are a few pockets of enjoyment in what unfolds on screen and watching it is semi-pleasant. But after the credits roll, mulling over everything you just saw, the film continues to sour like milk left out in the sun. I...

San Francisco train service plans to run solely on clean energy

This isn't exactly an overnight revolution, then. However, BART notes that it would actually outperform California's plans for a standard of 50 percent renewable energy use by 2030. Also, any improvements will likely make a tangible impact on the state. BART uses more power than the entire city of Alameda (over 400,000MW/h per year) -- even that 2025 target might help a lot. It's also important to note that BART expects to run both trains a...

Kinetic Fence Art / Deer Deterrent

Just about anyone who gardens has contended with all kinds of critter invasions. Over the years we’ve dealt with rabbits, squirrels, cats (ours), and worst of all, deer and elk. We tried electric wire fencing and the deer soon learned to just jump through it, since they have to be grounded to get shocked. Finally an elk tore it all down and we started over. We used 50"X16’ hog panels for the bottom and cobbled together a top system using co...
