On this week’s show, we welcome back Lee Garnett, the brilliant mind behind the social media-conscious online comic, ncomment. Lee guides us through the final chapter of his magnum opus, War, an epic three-part series about Digg, Reddit and the fractious conflicts between social communities.
But first, the headlines: Apple’s head designer Jonathan Ive is knighted, Netflix launches a new series (and double the delay on Warner Bros. content), Yahoo names PayPal’s chief as its CEO, An Android App that helps you fight SOPA, Reddit goes black to protest SOPA, Lenovo launches an Android-powered TV, Nokia launches the Lumia 900, Kinect comes to Windows, and Google adds personal results to search.
For our Final Word, we ask whether Internet access should be classified as a human right, or a facilitator of human rights.
