Holy marketing mashup:
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared.

YouTube censored the video. The Catholic League and the Archbishop of Canterbury are in a tizzy of outrage about it, which shows priests hanging out and dancing around with sexy [...]
When our society’s seekers of knowledge, conquest or material objects talk about their ultimate goals, they often appeal to crusading and questing metaphors that can take on religious overtones. Some place themselves in the role of old Sir Galahad, speaking of their object as “the Holy Grail of” something or other, even when that object [...]
What is there that we, living out in the grassroots, are supposed to do when both the people on Capitol Hill and the executives put in charge of our nation’s newsrooms are inclined to clam up? [...]
If Twitter users really don’t need more than 140 characters to communicate, how come they congregate at in-person conventions to talk about Twitter at length? What if we applied their terse standard to the more important creations in human history? [...]
