A Pennsylvania judge declined to block a new state law requiring specific kinds of photo identification to vote. Liberal groups, arguing that minorities and the poor would be disproportionately deprived of the ballot, said they would appeal to the State Supreme Court to stop the law before the November elections.
In the wake of the Aurora massacre, our comics blogger explores the meaning of the violence that's such an integral part of the Batman mythos — and suggests that in the face of real horror, our fictional heroes mean more than ever.
In two short decades, the Internet has changed almost everything about the way we live: The way we communicate, the way we shop, the way we read, the way we love, the way we fight, the way we play. So, too, the people shaping and changing the world are a breed apart from the old ruling class. Moguls, Masters of the Universe, military despots…your time has come and gone. The geeks have inherited the earth!
I define Social SEO as the ability social media has to help your SEO efforts by creating shareable, optimized, high quality content. Social Media and SEO need more things that tie them together.

Despite this cover, YouTube is not usually the first site that comes to mind when thinking about social media. I guess we take it a bit for granted while we wax rhapsodic about Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and Quora. Yet when I think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube is the place that comes most vibrantly to mind. It’s big, wide and deep.
Mature. Eccentric. Probably not what you think it is.
For all its bleakness, the future of Minority Report was one that we could recognize, and one that we were reaching towards -- at least when it came to the technology. Human-computer interaction would be more natural than ever, advertising would be everywhere and more personalized, and smart cars would deliver us to our smart homes.
