And lately as Mutiny Radio’s new minister of news editing, I’ve been forced to pontificate on the very nature of journalism and news. I don’t care about some of it, such as the more sensational sound surrounding cases like Ross Mirkarimi, Robert Bales, or Trayvon Martin. There are clearly stories here, but the overpowering voices of corporate media drown out real topics and issues on the sliding scale of importance! There are valuable stories out there! How does one overcome the hurdles of bias, outright corruption, and time constraint to cover them?

Ah, but for critical thinking, skepticism, and science! Those of us alive today pay tribute to the heroes of these game-changing tools of reason, with the Symphony of Science.

It is more important now than ever, as Obama flip-flops on the oil pipeline and leaders worldwide ignore the science, the poor are drug testedeconomists get it wrong, the 1% grow more psychopathic, the intelligentsia double down on 9/11 paranoia, and Big Brother tightens his hold:

  • A new surveillance camera by Hitachi Kokusai Electric can search, process and display up to thirty six million faces in just one second.
  • The US intelligence community has risen tenfold the time it has the right to keep data on American citizens and legal residents with no established ties to terrorists. Previously all such records had to be destroyed after six months.
  • The new guidelines for the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), which gathers and shares information among American intelligence and law enforcement agencies, were approved on Thursday.
  • NYPD has been scanning the irises of arrested Occupy protesters!

Some have been long claiming that science, technology, and social media will save the world… is it all just a series of tubes dream? Researchers have established a direct link between the number of friends you have on Facebook and the degree to which you are a “socially disruptive” narcissist, confirming the conclusions of many social media skeptics. Another new study released today  illustrates this point. It found that 18 percent of people who use social networking sites such as Facebook and Google+ have blocked, unfriended or hidden someone because of that person’s disagreeable political postings. Analysis of the  significance of the 2010 WikiLeaks disclosures by the International Review of Administrative Sciences, (published by SAGE on behalf of the Institute for Administrative Sciences), highlights four key reasons why radical transparency is hard to achieve, and why a technological fix alone will not achieve it.

And the flood of information itself may increase the amount of friction in our lives, not reduce it. Luckily, scientific thinking is there to help us light the way. Let’s hope and help more and more fellow users, journalists, consumers, voters and humans find the path.

“It’s just words.”

Neither have you tasted any salvia

Four adulterated hours of radio… Psionic Dehiscence and Stranger in a Strange Land.
Worry not! For though technical difficulties start ‘slight,’ they eventually denigrate into ‘noticeable’ and turn unsignalled into ‘massive’ for your aural delight! Listen to the desperate human ingenuity in the face of overwhelming technological darkness. The silver lining: as your host loses remote access to his news and subsequent comment, mediocre survival training kicks in: a potentially thought-provoking exploration of the mind, time, and being gives way to satiating and fully-warranted musical jamz.

Tonight we also interview masked superhero ‘El Cocco’ on the ins and outs of crime-fighting and do-gooding. He has seen into the black heart of evil, and he watched it get a baby tiger for its birfday, and feed it nothing but hatred. Maybe he can explain what this all means, because I’m talking out of my ass again.
