Facebook Overeach

Why would a scan of a private document containing my social security number that I emailed to my wife wind up in the photos section of her Facebook account? Is Facebook scanning incoming emails for photographs and moving them to Facebook accounts without permission? I have contacted Facebook and am waiting for a reply. Which Federal agency would have responsibility for oversight here? I will be doing all my scanning as PDFs from now on.

Concerned Citizens for Astroturfing Education?

On certain medical student forums, I'm seeing vague-looking ads saying things like "the medical education system is corrupt", and link to this mysterious site, sponsored by an "advocacy group" called "Concerned Citizens for Medical Education". However, I cannot find any references to "CCME" other than their website and Twitter (which hasn't been updated). No contact information is on their website other than a generic form. A Whois search seems to link to...some kind of proxy service in Panama? Sure smells like astroturfing to me - but who exactly is behind it? [more inside]

I want the app equivalent of the the pill timer cap

Is there an app/web equivalent of the pill timer cap? These caps tell you the last time you opened the bottle (in days or hours or whatever). I want a webpage or app (iOS) version where I can get a list of things, and it will allow me to click to say "I just did this" and then count up and show me how long it's been since I clicked last.

Dummy Catalog Data

I'm looking for data I could use to populate a library catalog that I'm building. A while ago, I posted this on Projects. Now I'm at the point where I'm working to build my own catalog to test it out. The only problem is that I need some records to fill it with. Ideally they would be between 10,000 and 30,000 and only books. [more inside]

How to find a website designer for a unique project?

I'm looking for someone to make a website for a cool project I have in mind. In particular, I'm looking for someone who would be able to impart a unique aesthetic consistent with the content. The content consists of many hours of audio recordings of "Over the Edge" radio shows I did with the now-deceased Don Joyce from the noise collective Negativland. Ideally, the designer would be someone familiar with Negativland and/or Over the Edge, but not necessarily. How do I find this person? [more inside]
