* Here is an article about the Super Hero bubble in popular culture. X-Men was the #1 movie in America this weekend Grossing over $100 Million! Aren’t we sick of Super Heros yet? – Too Big To Fail.

* Here is an article about Napster’s 15th birthday. Not sure what Napster is? Well this article quickly summarizes the music interface, AND looks at 20 other inventions or movements that took place since 1999. It’s pretty crazy!

* Here is an article and a rant about the equal internet speeds for everyone. It’s funny! – Net Neutrality.
