A Message to TPM Readers,

This morning TPM published an article on the ‘hacktivist’ group ‘Anonymous’ which included mugshots of 14 accused members of the group which TPM obtained through a federal FOIA request. For six years the TPMMuckraker section of our site has chronicled public…

You did it.

As of October 25th (my birthday), Uncharted Books officially met its $10,000 Kickstarter goal. It took about 7 days, 200 backers, and an astonishing amount of support from the community. Retweets/reblogs from Neil Gaiman, Wil Wheaton, and Superchunk didn’t hurt either.

Thank…

America’s First Bible Written in Indian Language

Well that was a waste of ink!!! They probably can’t even read their own language!

John Eliot, a Puritan missionary to the Indians, translated the New Testament so the Indians could be saved. It is now the first published Bible in America. It’s rumored the Old Testament will be published within the next couples years. 

You know what they say — you can’t teach an old Indian new religion.

Letter from Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, in social network’s IPO filing

producermatthew:

Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission — to make the world more open and connected.
 
We think it’s important that everyone who invests in Facebook understands what this mission means to us, how we make decisions and why we do the things we do. I will try to outline our approach in this letter.
 
At Facebook, we’re inspired by technologies that have revolutionized how people spread and consume information. We often talk about inventions like the printing press and the television — by simply making communication more efficient, they led to a complete transformation of many important parts of society. They gave more people a voice. They encouraged progress. They changed the way society was organized. They brought us closer together.
 
Today, our society has reached another tipping point. We live at a moment when the majority of people in the world have access to the internet or mobile phones — the raw tools necessary to start sharing what they’re thinking, feeling and doing with whomever they want. Facebook aspires to build the services that give people the power to share and help them once again transform many of our core institutions and industries.
 
There is a huge need and a huge opportunity to get everyone in the world connected, to give everyone a voice and to help transform society for the future. The scale of the technology and infrastructure that must be built is unprecedented, and we believe this is the most important problem we can focus on.
