Poverty, the internet and temples

The mountain man and the surgeon -
Relative levels of poverty, using examples from Appalachia and the Congo.

The internet is broken -
Over the years, as Internet applications proliferated -- wireless devices, peer-to-peer file-sharing, telephony -- companies and network engineers came up with ingenious and expedient patches, plugs, and workarounds. The result is that the originally simple communications technology has become a complex and convoluted affair. For all of the Internet's wonders, it is also difficult to manage and more fragile with each passing day.

Including some erotic images from Khajuraho near the top.
