What we learned this week

  • Americans planning to vote for smaller government in November should be aware of how difficult it is going to be to reduce government spending in future – not because of politics, but because of an aging population.
  • Since Israel controls the only oil supply into Palestine, an enterprising Palestinian company has created a solar car.
  • “My first experiences with lossless, duplicable technology didn’t have anything to do with my career as a rapper. It wasn’t with a torrent site. Or a bootlegged disc. It was a tomato” – a leftfield reflection on the parallels between music piracy and seed-saving.
