Judge demands social media passwords
Authored by: kg on Wednesday, November 21 2012 @ 03:53 AM EST

Once again, a judge is requiring social media passwords. In this case, it's the plaintiffs in a sexual harassment suit.
Postings and messages are seen as necessary to the defense. It's interesting that he's not subpoenaing the data straight
from the service provider (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), as would be normal in most other cases. In my mind, this is
casting far too broad a net, and it could have a chilling effect on harassment lawsuits: If you want to file a suit,
all your social media and other online activity will be revealed to the world. Including any "discrediting"
information (affairs, etc.). These emerging issues will eventually have to make it up to the Supreme Court.

Judge orders Plaintiffs to produce passwords

Sailfish OS developer site now open
Authored by: macrorodent on Wednesday, November 21 2012 @ 05:36 AM EST

This is the new Linux-based mobile OS project started by former Meego developers from Nokia:

Intriguingly, the QA section claims many Android apps will run on it. If true, that immediately gives it an advantage over WP7/8...

How Drug Company Money is Undermining Science
Authored by: Anonymous on Wednesday, November 21 2012 @ 09:58 AM EST
In the past few years the pharmaceutical industry has come up with many ways to funnel large sums of money—enough sometimes to put a child through college—into the pockets of independent medical researchers who are doing work that bears, directly or indirectly, on the drugs these firms are making and marketing.

The problem is not just with the drug companies and the researchers but with the whole system—the granting institutions, the research labs, the journals, the professional societies, and so forth. No one is providing the checks and balances necessary to avoid conflicts. Instead organizations seem to shift responsibility from one to the other, leaving gaps in enforcement that researchers and drug companies navigate with ease, and then shroud their deliberations in secrecy.

“There isn't a single sector of academic medicine, academic research or medical education in which industry relationships are not a ubiquitous factor,” says sociologist Eric Campbell, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

[ Reply to This | Parent | # ] petition to remove David Kappos
Authored by: rcsteiner on Wednesday, November 21 2012 @ 01:01 PM EST
Not sure if there is interest here, but this is related to one of the newspicks entitled 'US patent chief to software patent critics: "Give it a rest already"'

Petition to Remove David Kappos as head of the US Patent Office.

I figured it was worth spreading the word, at least. Please remove if not appropriate, PJ, and I apologize in advance if it is.
