Boing Boing Archives Analysis (https://sites.google.com)

The purpose and point of this video was to make a video about some of the things we learned about a few of the countries we´╗┐ studied this year in our AP comparative politics class. We picked Nigeria because it was the country we found the most interesting. And also because our teacher has been multiple times and never stops talking about how much he loves it. — By Nii at 3:08 PM Sat

Art Assemblage: Do Not Screen (http://donotscreen.net/)

Hundreds of film clips, found in an abandoned northern Michigan barn, seem to depict some sort of ceremony involving a lurking building and a well-dressed crowd, may depict something creepy. Or cool. Or both. (I'm not affiliated with the project except as a participant, and you can participate by going to their website.) — By RebNachum at 12:48 PM Fri

(the deleted video of this desperately needs to be excavated!) A woman traveling on New York's Metro North train line was recorded by a fellow passenger telling train employees that she is too "well-educated" to be told to quiet down and not use profanity in her cell-phone conversation. "Do you know what schools I've been to? How well-educated I am?" she asks the train employee, who is seen explaining to another employee that she asked the passenger to stop using the "F-bomb." — By elk at 12:53 PM Sat

Someone with a HongKong IP address copied user data from Mt. Gox's database, accessed an account cont. 7.7% of all Bitcoins, sold them, bought them back, tried to change them to US$, crashed the Bitcoin exchange rate from $17.50 to $0.01 within minutes. Mt. Gox is undoing 3500+ transactions that occurred since then, resetting the rate to $17.50. BC is trading ~$14.50 now. The user data (4MB text file) are being circulated, sold. Bitcoin's anon. transactions also easier to track than people thought. — By Amelia_G at 11:17 AM Mon

Fixing the US patent system (http://badpatents.blogsp)

Jim Hall (founder of the FreeDOS project) has a new blog, Bad Patents, which is focused on patent reform, especially in the area of software patents. He notes that the USPTO is currently inviting public comments on a proposed rule to streamline patent reexamination proceedings. In addition, the America Invents Act, which has passed the Senate, is currently held up in the house, and he urges folks to call their representatives. — By satellitenoise at 5:53 PM Fri

"The [13-year-old] boy was removed from his social studies class by a uniformed police officer. He was then escorted to a closed-door conference room and questioned for 30 minutes by two police officers, the assistant principal, and an administrative intern. JDB was not given Miranda warnings, or permitted to call his grandmother, who was his legal guardian." Lower courts admitted his confession because he should have known he was free to leave. SCOTUS sensibly ruled that this is ridiculous. — By Manny at 7:53 AM Fri

A Visual History of Science Fiction (http://chronicle.com/art)

Ward Shelley's unusually tentacular family tree, "The History of Science Fiction, pictures the history and constituents of sci fi, from the original impulses he labels "fear" and "wonder," through expansion in the Enlightenment and the Romantic and Gothic periods, to the bewildering increase in the number and kinds of authors comprising the modern genre. Part of the "Places & Spaces: Mapping Science" art project, that seeks to visualize "human activity and scientific progress on a global scale." — By Zachary Bos at 4:53 AM Wed

Iceland Crowdsources its next Constitution (http://www.guardian.co.u)

So what do you do if you're a small Scandanavian nation racked by financial and political crisis? You put together a council to hammer out a new constitution, of course. But any old parlimentary democracy can do that. Living up to it's reputation as a forward-thinking haven for 'net freedom, the constitutional council is soliciting input from the public... using Facebook and Twitter. — By OhMeadhbh at 8:26 PM Wed

"In a time when youth is glorified and valued as an indispensable asset, to get old is increasingly hard. In this project I invite women that married a few decades ago to be photographed with their original wedding dresses. Husbands might have gone but the dress was kept. A garment that carries memories and made its wearer feel special. A woman that carried with her love, happiness hope of an endless future...or perhaps anger, fear or sadness." — By IainJ at 4:43 AM Thu
