Yes, it can be done. And if they can do it, why can't Australia? Well, because open cut coal mines are beautiful while wind farms are noisy and ugly plus other solar power is never going to cut it. /sarcasm

The way women are harassed online is despicable - definitely worth a watch.

The big question is how to stop it. Clearly there are guys out there who are complete idiots who just don't like women. I mean - who sends death threats (first) and who send death threats about games - really?

I could summarise this article but I won't. However, the opinions expressed in it (about how IT services businesses are in trouble and how "shareholder value" isn't how you should run your company) ring true to me.

It is very interesting to see how the US military/political scene views the rest of the world threat-wise. There is such a culture of fear within the US and looking out from inside - they are afraid of everything even though this is the safest they have ever been.

Haven't really got much to add to this except that we have a government who are a bunch of idiots and an opposition party who couldn't organise themselves to provide an intelligent alternative if their lives depended on it. Sad.

Is it the right way to go? Given the low rate of offenders re-entering the prison system and the crazy low rate of incarceration - maybe. And that's not to say that Norway doesn't have "normal" prisons - but this is an interesting way to deal with some of them.
