The Attic Rooftop Lounge Grand Opening Party
For a short, chubby 13-year-old girl with a boy band obsession, going online in the early 1990s was a lot less hostile than going to school. Looking back, I most miss the personal anonymity; an online existence without photography or video, a time when it was normal not to use your real name, when people could interact without demographic data being harvested for advertisers or shuffling people into neat demographic categories in the name of im ...

Edward Snowden Attorney Wolfgang Kaleck Speaks To Foreign Journalists Association
Stephen Fry has condemned "disgraceful" mass surveillance of communications by spy agencies GCHQ and the NSA and said it was "very depressing" how much governments wanted to control the internet. The QI host said there was "something squalid and rancid about being spied on" and using people's fears about terrorism as a means to spy on citizens was "duplicitous and deeply wrong". In a pre-recorded video message, Fry addressed a conference organised ...

Here's what I said: This is a most troubling event for speech, the web and Europe. The court has trampled the free-speech rights not only of Google but of the sites -- and speakers -- to which it links. The court has undertaken to control k ...

Sloan Reading Panel At The Tribeca Film Festival
When I received my PhD in elementary particle physics from UCLA in 1963, numerous opportunities presented themselves. I decided to take an offer from the University of Hawaii to join the faculty as a tenure-track assistant professor.
