Most mysterious non-story of the day is definitely here.

CSM gets optimistic about the falling death-rate in a Brazilian town..they neglect to mention until most of the way through that the population of the “town” is under 5,000…then they go on to compare its successful crime reduction with the murder-rate in Rio and São Paulo. Hmm.

The Guardian notes that more than 1 billion mobile phones were sold last year. More impressively, Nokia sold 4 out of every 10 of those billion.

It’s official (at least according to the UN), most of us humans will live in cities by the end of this year.

Lot’s of fluff about Microsoft’s EU fines and their newest interoperability initiatives. This has been generating more informed debates on the PSL mailing lists and Groklaw

Maybe I’ll have more to say about it tomorrow if I get around to figuring out what’s been going on in WIPO lately.
