Thanks for publishing it. I'd like to see Pipedot evolve a different mission, since both Soylent News and Pipedot are basically trying to do the same thing, and the audience seems to be with Soylent by a significant share. Maybe Pipedot could be a more intelligent version of Reddit, without the pr0n?

My understanding is Bryan wants the code to look less like wet spaghetti before he shares it. Hopefully it will be out under AGPL3.

Feinstein had given firm support for the NSA's phone call tracking program just last month while criticizing Snowden for being a runaway whistle-blower who could have instead turned his documents to Congress.

"What keeps me up at night, candidly, is another attack against the United States. And I see enough of the threat stream to know that is possible," Feinstein said at a Pacific Council on International Policy dinner in Century City.

"But the way we prevent another attack - and this is tricky - is intelligence," she said. "You have to know what's going to happen, because it's too late otherwise."

"There are all kinds of things that are going on. And for some reason, the fear of our government for a bona fide reason, which is to prevent a terrorist attack, raising this kind of concern, when there are only 22 people in our country who have access to this database and every one of them is vetted,"

I may be in the minority of consumers, but not having the ability to use SD cards is a killer. Most of my music listening is MP3s and FLACs, not streaming since that cuts into battery life.
