Hi, I'm Adam.

I'm a twentysomething Californian with equal and abiding loves of people and technology. I'm an information junkie, an occasional writer and thinker, a humanist and transhumanist and perpetual student of humanity.

I'm currently attending UC San Diego, throwing myself against every wall to see what sticks, soaking up the sun and people and opportunities and trying to figure out how best to combine all my passions into a life that leaves no regrets and takes no prisoners.

“This… stuff’? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You open up iTunes and you select… I don’t know… that Miley Cyrus album, for instance because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what music you listen to. But what you don’t know is that that song is not just pop, it’s not hip hop. It’s not rock. It’s actually synth. And you’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2001, Kylie Minogue did a cross over album of dance pop, years before Madonna’s disco revival. And then I think it was Lady Gaga… wasn’t it who mixed a variety of electronic and synthetic beats, re-launching that 80s genre? I think we need drum machine here. And then EDM quickly showed up in the recordings of eight different female pop singers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the Disney stars and then trickled on down into some tragic Top 40 Britney dub step remix where you, no doubt, bought in online with the remaining balance of an iTunes gift card. However, that “wrecking ball” represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the music industry when, in fact, you’re listening to the song that was selected for you by the people in this room… from a pile of Rihanna’s left over singles.”

The different legal systems under which Israelis and Palestinians are tried apply to children as well. As +972 has consistently documented, Palestinian children arrested by the Israeli army are treated by the military court system as “potential terrorists.” The visual below demonstrates what would happen should two 12-year-old boys, one Israeli and one Palestinian, get arrested for fighting. One would swiftly be brought before a judge, given access to a lawyer, tried and spared jail time. The other could face two years in jail without trial.
