See on Scoop.it – Infographics and Social Media Facebook, Twitter and Google employ teams to work directly with Super Pacs to target key swing state voters online (Finlay says: Conservative Super Pacs turn to social media and internet to expand reach http://t.co/oAI8Wcwk...)… See on www.guardian.co.uk
Former Reagan Administration Paul Craig Roberts stated in a interview with RT News that there is a concerted effort to shut Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, up and that if the legal attempt fails, he’ll be assassinated by a CIA assassination team. Roberts explains to the anchorwoman. “There is a concerted effort to nail...
Kevin Smith has always been on the somewhat forefront of social media and advertising. I’m not sure that’s the best way to put it…more like he uses unconventional means to get his message across. I’m sure you all remember the whole Southwest debacle that he took to Twitter and his blog. And if you haven’t...
Courage to Resist, the support group set up for raising funds in support of U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning (the man behind a large number of the recent WikiLeaks documents), has been closed down. “We’ve been in discussions with PayPal for weeks, and by their own admission there’s no legal obligation for them to close...
This is all getting a little scary if you ask me. Governments being able to turn off the internet like a light switch in the bathroom…all willy nilly. It’s a bit too 1984 if you ask me. This graph is from last week, and they’re back up now, but it is still very frightening that...

I’ll be candid with you: This is an awful development for those of us who...
BARACK OBAMA:  The chicken crossed the road because it was time for change! The chicken wanted change! JOHN MC CAIN:  My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road. HILLARY CLINTON:  When I was First...
One of the interesting things about Craig Ferguson is that, not only does he semi ad-lib his way through extremely funny monologues most nights, he also periodically injects his humor with life or history lessons. He did this one night when he started the Late Late Show by explaining, in a very succinct manner, why...
If you are active on Digg.com you receive a steady stream of email notifications telling you that people are now following your account, because they are “interested in what you are up to on Digg!” or some such.
