The Winklevoss SEC Filing is an absolute comedy goldmine: Buttcoin
If a malicious actor or botnet obtains control in excess of 50 percent of the processing power active on the Bitcoin Network, it is possible that such actor or botnet could manipulate the Blockchain in a manner that adversely affects an investment in the Shares or the ability of the Trust to operate.

My wish for 2015: a machine to judge political claims against reality | Comment is free | The Guardian
"The third thing I would simulate is a massive programme of social housebuilding in Britain. Everybody talks about this but nobody does it: our current system is geared to building high-rise apartments for the Russian mafia and rich footballers to speculate on. I have a hunch that, if you built 200,000 publicly owned dwellings a year, as we did in the mid-1950s, it would permanently burst the UK property mania. It would force British consumers to stop expecting asset price bubbles and – with cheap rents – free up a bigger chunk of wages to be spent on something productive."

RT : The SF housing industry hijacking of "live/work" happened decades ago, and it's still pretty much the same.

"Criticisms of the live/work boom run along several lines:

The lofts typically have two-story high living rooms, with split level interiors, occupying an average of 1,000 square feet. This is a low density use of scarce building sites, at a time when San Francisco is suffering an affordable housing crisis of epic magnitude. Moreover, the live/work ordinance exempts live/work developers from the requirement of 10% affordable units required of all other housing developers.
San Francisco has less than a thousand acres of industrial land. As long as the land was restricted to industrial uses, land prices and rents were more affordable than elsewhere in the city, and blue collar production and repair industries as well as arts uses could flourish there for that reason. Luxury housing has far higher market value than industrial uses. Allowing the industrial areas to be cannabilized for $400,000 condos tends to drive up land prices and rents, driving out blue collar industries and arts uses. This means that many people who work in these fields are deprived of work options in the city.
Building expensive housing in working class areas with a large low-income population, such as the Mission District, makes the area more desireable for people with higher incomes, and tends to raise housing values and pushes up rents. Live/works thus act as a force for displacement of the existing working class population."
