Note: re-posted after withdrawing post a few days ago; no changes made since then.I would put this very much on par with a past Scoble moment, as I’ve been lucky enough to see something which actually impresses me.

Note: I just want to quickly apologise for the lack of posts recently; moved into a new house and broadband won't be set up for a while, so had to resort to dial-up which is proving troublesome. I'll do my best, considering this is essentially my income, as lack of posts means I can't pay the rent.
I've just had to take a post down, which a lot of you have probably already read. My bad, my bad a lot.
I've been reading the headlines today, and the main headlines on most of the top technology websites are about the YouTube/Google/Viacom saga.

Corporations over time gain social responsibility for the products they release: Microsoft and their report abuse features, Facebook and their privacy settings, and now Google are adding more to the list.I spoke some time ago about plagiarism, more on a positive note, considering the use of plagiarism detection style software is being used for finding authors of extremist material.
It's been just over a month now since I started writing here, and it's certainly been an interesting one. I've had many emails over the last month asking me this, that and the other, not even a single death threat yet!
As you all probably know, considering the 2 year lead-up to today and the considerable press coverage, it's Bill Gates' last day at Microsoft. I'd like to take a slightly different spin on covering his career and life, by pointing out the stupid stuff, in the hope it will appeal to my target audience: the student.
