Sanders winning the Democratic nomination and even the White House is truly not the prize that Sanders, or many of his supporters, are seeking. He wants to transform the system.

When Hillary lost to Obama, she cashed in on the Secretary of State job. The thing is... Bernie isn't interested in increasing his own importance and power. He's just interested in making things better for all of us, and he'll continue to work towards that goal through whatever paths are available to him.

I love this guy, but he may have spoiled "politics as usual" for me. Now that I see we can do better, I want that.

Where in the world are the Sci-Hub users? And what are they reading? These data are from the Sci-Hub server logs from 1 September 2015 through 29 February 2016. They include 28 million download requests with timestamps, geolocations (latitude, longitude), and the Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) of each document requested for download. The geolocation is the result of a clustering algorithm that mapped the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of all users to their nearest city geolocation, based on data from Maxmind and the Google Maps API. The original IP addresses of users are not included. These data provide the first global view of the readership of the world's largest online, open source scholarly library.

The DNC is apparently sending out a -survey- push poll "looking for input from the Democratic voters." Let's just say I told then what I really think about the way the primaries have been run this year (and suggested some alternative priorities to the choices they gave me). Do they care? Probably not.

At the end, when asked what I was going to do to help the Democratic party, I told them: "Switch my party to 'Unaffiliated' to hopefully wake up the Democratic establishment."

Actually I've already done that as of about a week ago. I guess they haven't gotten my change of party notification yet. Thankfully, my state is one of the ones with open primaries so switching to 'Unaffiliated' doesn't mean I'll lose what little voice I still have as a voter.

Paramount is suing Axanar over a fan-made and publicly funded Star Trek film. One of the points in the suit is Paramount's claim that they own the Klingon language.

The Language Creation Society has filed an amicus brief in support of Axanar on the issue of the Klingon language.

It's an interesting read, as it not only goes through the history of the development of the language, but how it has expanded and spread.___#toread

#this

I really cannot say, right now, just how much I'd like the ability to search G+ posts by user

For starters:  searching by me.

Among the reasons I've been spamming my own stream with stuff is as a quasi-note-stashing scheme.  Except, of course, that it's fucking excruciating to track stuff down after.

There's data take-out.

Old-school G+ had a "search by your own posts".  That's, apparently, dead...  Um.  Yeah.  I'm actually back on (old) desktop right now, and there are no search options (other than "best" and "most recent", which never seemed to work).

But yeah, a few other folks I'd like to track down as well.

Google.  Search.  You'd think they'd buy a solution or something.___#this

Mary Wollstonecraft was born #onthisday in 1759.

This is Wollstonecraft’s ‘Original Stories from Real Life’ which she wrote to provide a model for teachers and pupils which would ‘fix principles of truth and humanity on a solid and simple foundation’. Each chapter addresses a particular moral failing such as vanity and greed and this 1791 edition is illustrated with engravings by William Blake  http://bit.ly/1rwDG3B

But the meme works on a higher level. It satirizes the fact that political discourse in America has sunk so low that this kind of spurious accusation can actually get traction. Ted-Cruz-is-the-Zodiac types often say they’re only doing what birther Republicans did to Obama in 2008. They repeatedly insisted that Obama’s birth certificate was faked, and that he was born in Kenya. Gradually, certain members of the public began to believe it. So claiming that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac simply mimics the mass-panic technique Republicans have already perfected, several meme proponents argued.

Accidental discovery could help batteries last years longer

Today, most smartphone and device batteries are made from lithium and slowly lose capacity over thousands of recharges. Researchers at UC Irvine built a battery that substituted gold nanowire in electrolyte gel for the lithium and lost barely five percent battery capacity over 200,000 charge cycles — but they aren't totally sure how it worked.

How +60 minutes​​​​​​ got through this story without mentioning the Democratic primary candidate who is championing reform on this issue just boggles the mind. Aside from that glaring omission, it was a good story.
