Что Россия может и не может производить вместо нефти - Московский Центр Карнеги - Фонд Карнеги за Международный Мир
Идея чудесного скачка в зоны, где мы сами будем создавать новые технологии, очень популярна и в правительстве, и в экспертном сообществе. Но статистика говорит, что подобные скачки дороги и имеют низкие шансы на успех. Экономика естественным образом развивается вокруг существующих технологий, постепенно осваивая соседние пространства.

On Tinder, Off Sex - The New York Times
“When I called my health clinic last month to refill the birth-control pill prescription I have had for 10 years, I was put on the line with a doctor — not my normal gynecologist — who began asking questions about my health.

“It says on your form that you’re interested in both men and women but that you do not use alternative forms of birth control outside of the pill,” he said.

“That’s correct,” I said. To pre-empt a safe-sex lecture, I told him I hadn’t had sex in two years, so it was really a moot point.

“So you’re secondary abstaining then,” he said, surely making note of this somewhere in my records.

“Well, I think ‘accidental abstaining’ is more appropriate,” I said jokingly, attempting to maintain some dignity in this conversation with a man I likely would never meet who seemed to view me as some kind of morally reformed or seriously disturbed woman in my mid-20s.”

This homophobic Tumblr post transformed into a dystopian LGBTI adventure novel and it is amazing - Gay Star News
“Sometimes homophobes will try anything to come up with a reasonable argument for why homosexuality is wrong, but it turns out with a little bit of thought that debate is going to be shut down very easily.
That’s what happened when an anti-gay Tumblr user said if there was a straight island, a gay island and a lesbian island, the only one that would survive is the one full of heterosexual people.
But then, Tumblr users came back with better arguments – and to be honest, a pitch for a LGBTI dystopian adventure novel that we would definitely read.”

Let Twitter Be Twitter | James Gleick
“Twitter is a mess—everybody says so. Twitter is mostly nonsense. You can’t find what you need on Twitter. Twitter is all haystack and no needles, all static and no signal.

By the lights of many investors Twitter is floundering. Its long-time CEO (five years is long in Internet time), Dick Costolo, jumped or was pushed in June, the board is scrambling to find a replacement, and Wall Street is sounding the alarm. The company’s revenue merely doubled last year, to $1.4 billion. Only 300 million people use Twitter every month. Apparently that isn’t enough.”

Green Card — часто задаваемые вопросы, алгоритм и подробности
«С 2010 года Россия снова, после пятилетнего перерыва, участвует в визовой лотерее Green Card (если официально, Diversity Visa Lottery). Украина, Белоруссия и все остальные бывшие союзные республики тоже участвуют. Про лотерею эту все краем уха слышали и многие не отказались бы попытать счастья - но кто-то вовсе не верит в ее существование, кто-то не хочет разбираться, потому что точную информацию собирать довольно сложно, а кто-то и вовсе обжегся на мошенниках, которые вечно на ней паразитируют. Между тем: лотерея существует, участвовать в ней просто, денег участие не стоит вообще никаких. Правда, в случае выигрыша нужно будет потратить время и деньги, но это все тоже в пределах разумного и не очень сложно. Мы, супружеская пара москвичей, - выиграли, сделали все правильно и получили иммиграционные визы. А теперь хотим поделиться опытом и собрать в одном месте все, что узнали за это время.»
