Randall Munroe tackles those “silenced” for holding controversial opinions.
“I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”
These days the Internet of Things is getting closer all the time. Practically everything is wired and managing them all is somewhat a pain.

As you know it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of what our children are accessing on-line and thus potentially leading to cyber bullying and exposure to content that is inappropriate for their age groups.
Our new product Skydog (we are exclusive Irish distributors) seeks to solve that problem by assisting parents to monitor their children’s on-line activity, prevent them from accessing undesirable websites and restrict the amount of time spent on-line on all of their devices.
Born from the notion that “hiring shouldn’t suck,” Clinch offers a hiring experience that is more engaging, more honest, and basically more human – for both jobseeker and employer alike. Our in-house photographers and copywriters work alongside companies to create a profile on Clinch that provides unique insight into their workplace and culture. For the job seekers themselves,
Clinch provides a sort of “window on the workplace,” allowing them to get a real feel for the company and the people who work there. The more informed people are, the better choices they can make when it comes to submitting job applications.
Their robots.txt though shows their true feelings stripped of the marketing:
Paul Bolger (a former animator with the Don Bluth Studio as well as his own studio Dagda Film) along with Barry Devlin (the Horslips front man) are attempting to bring their vision of the Cú Chulainn legend to life in a new graphic novel triology.
They spin the story as:
In this forgotten world where war once ruled peace reigns supreme and this is killing Morrigan, last of the Long Lived. In a desperate bid to stay vital she kidnaps baby Cú Cullan and exposes the child to her darkness imbuing him with unnatural strength and agility, but at a price. He inherits her dark hair, eyes and unpredictable brooding nature. He is not easy to be around. Although physically smaller than his peers he has the status of a giant. Friend and foe fear him. Since killing a Blacksmith’s guard dog and taking it’s place as a child, hence his nickname, HOUND, he has earned a reputation for never letting anyone or anything get in the way of that which he wants more than anything else – to be Champion of the World.
They’re a bit more than a third of the ways to the £22K goal with 17 days to go.
If you’ve ever clicked on one of the app redemption links we sometimes have for iOS apps, you may already encountered the developers of Castro - Vancouver based Pádraig Ó Cinnéide and Oisin Prendiville (who is also also behind My Artist, one of our first app reviews).
Like the best iOS apps of the moment, it fully leverages all the gestures and styling of iOS 7 to give an app that is quick and intuitive to use.
Under its skin it’s a smart little beast, downloading new episodes at optimum times (as all well behaved apps should) so new content is served up as soon as it’s ready.
A slick little package and to be honest, it gets more use from me than its rival Network.
