If you aspire to be one of those types that uses little ascii faces and pictures online, will help you fill your clipboard full of UTF-8 gibberish that you can paste all over the web with reckless abandon.

What was the first thing sold on the internet ever? A computer? A car? Nope, sorry. It was a bag of pot.

In the UK, many items on Amazon suddenly appear for a price of one penny. Retailers rail, while Amazon blames third-party software.

So the boss at work installed a filter that prevents you from visiting on the company time. Fret not and don't rely on just one proxy service because the filter gets updates and begins to block them as well. You now have access to hundreds of sites that will allow admittance for you.

John Oliver tells it like it is: If you rely on advertising to pay for your broadcast or website, you end up beholden to them. Of course, he makes the point much funnier than I can.

YUP | 2 YO.
There's a new app for your IOS/Android device that only serves one function: to send the word "YO" to your internet pals. It's obviously more clever than I can see, because they just pulled $1m in funding for the app.

In which Hank debates Hank on one of the most important debates in the United States today, whether to keep the internet open or to allow cable companies to open fast lanes (and slow lanes) for different parts of the internet to flow through.

Please make a public comment here!
The filing number is 14-28

Tell the FCC that they should reclassify broadband internet as a telecommunications (or "Common carrier") service. Right now broadband is regulated like TV or radio, which doesn't make sense.

This is a public comment for the public record... official government stuff... so you'll have to include your actual name and address.

You can also email the FCC directly here:

One of my longtime favorite places on the web, (.org is for fascists), has announced it will be shutting down shortly after the turn of the year. In an oldschool internet dying the death of a thousand cuts, losing fazed is a huge gash indeed.

It's no secret that I don't trust google and don't exactly count myself as one of their fans. I worry about any for-profit enterprise that aspires to be the sole repository for the entirety of the world's knowledge. That being said, though, I find their image search to be pretty damn handy, and they've just added a couple of really good features to it - the ability to search for transparent images and animated gifs. Begrudging kudos to you, you megalomaniacal corporate juggernaut.

In a cold and cynical world, where social media are becoming increasingly more popular. Where real friends and socializing is replaced with likes and meaningless comments. Many people find themselves standing on the outside looking in.

How do you get enough thumbs up to get through a gray day? Who will leave some nice words on your photo when it has been out there for 30 minutes and nobody sees the value of your contribution?

There is hope. They call themselves the Facebook Patrol, they are wearing caps and are Norwegian.

The Facebook Patrol - there's no one like us.

It might feel like our communications systems have evolved past the point where we'd need tons of cables, but it couldn't be further from the truth - undersea cables are an integral part of the internet's backbone. But where are they, exactly, and which cable links which hubs? TeleGeography makes a great four-color graphic every year that show exactly that. You can zoom in on the map using your mouse scroll wheel.
