I folded my bike and carried it into the lobby of the office building in midtown Manhattan. The security guard behind the desk looked up at me, grimaced, then looked down again and growled something indecipherable. “Excuse me?” I asked. He sighed loudly and didn’t say anything for a moment. I was already jittery because of a near miss with a taxi on the ride over, and this deflated me even more. I tried to stay calm and upbeat. Finally, after citing the The Bicycle Access to Office Buildings Law, which requires New York City buildings with freight elevators to admit bicycles, he let me in. When I made it to the freight elevator, I smiled at the operator who was joking with some construction workers.

The Drones Are Coming. Americans are used to reading about unmanned aircraft flying over the Middle East in search of militants.
Soon those eyes will be over American skies as well. This coming spring, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) plans to propose rules that will enable civilians to obtain permits to fly drones over the national airspace. Non-military drones can be very useful in a variety of ways – from dusting crops to inspecting dangerous disaster sites – but drones are also powerful surveillance tools. Before unleashing this technology, the FAA must establish basic privacy and transparency rules for domestic use of drones. The FAA should require applications for drone licenses to include a description of how the drone operator intends to handle any information the drone will collect about individuals, and the FAA should make approved drone licenses, along with the licensee’s privacy statement, publicly available.
Of course, law enforcement agencies will not be the only ones using drones. Agreements. Omdraft3-1.jpg (600×800) Occupy Information.

ThinkTanks. Sustainability. Stratfor Hacked, 200GB Of Emails, Credit Cards Stolen, Client List Released, Includes MF Global, Rockefeller Foundation.

Chronology of releases from AnonymousIRC starting early this afternoon: If The Night Before Christmas Had Been Written for the Occupy Movement - Brainstorm. Tonight at a marina holiday party, our neighbor and dear friend, Roger Thiel, treated us to his annual gift of a Christmas poem and reading.
Roger has lived in our marina for more than 20 years and has entertained uncountable numbers of live aboards and visitors with song, oratory delights and, of course, his annual holiday poems. The shop of which Roger speaks in this poem is his own, and it makes Santa’s workshop look pretty boring by comparison. Occupy Wall Street Becomes Highly Collectible. NEW YORK – Occupy Wall Street may still be working to shake the notion it represents a passing outburst of rage, but some establishment institutions have already decided the movement's artifacts are worthy of historic preservation.
More than a half-dozen major museums and organizations from the Smithsonian Institution to the New-York Historical Society have been avidly collecting materials produced by the Occupy movement. Staffers have been sent to occupied parks to rummage for buttons, signs, posters and documents.

50 Economic Numbers From 2011 That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe. Even though most Americans have become very frustrated with this economy, the reality is that the vast majority of them still have no idea just how bad our economic decline has been or how much trouble we are going to be in if we don't make dramatic changes immediately.
If we do not educate the American people about how deathly ill the U.S. economy has become, then they will just keep falling for the same old lies that our politicians keep telling them. Just "tweaking" things here and there is not going to fix this economy. We truly do need a fundamental change in direction. America is consuming far more wealth than it is producing and our debt is absolutely exploding. If we stay on this current path, an economic collapse is inevitable.
