More and more e-books being stored in the 'cloud'

(philly.com): The transition from print to electronic books, for many readers, is inevitable.Will those virtual libraries live on a personal device, such as Amazon's Kindle? Or will people choose to store their e-books on the Internet "cloud," on networks accessible through any computer or smart-phone? And how portable will readers' digital libraries be? Will readers be able to share their e-books the way you pass a treasured paper book on to a good friend? The publishing world is going through rapid change, which is clear this holiday season as large numbers of consumers embrace electronic books available for download to devices such as the Kindle, Barnes&Noble's Nook and Sony's Reader.

As any Internet service catches on, the people behind it come under increasing pressure to monetize their product. Increased usage means increased costs, investors want a return, and the creators of any successful enterprise expect to be rewarded for their ingenuity and hard work. This seems fairly straightforward until you get into the realm of social networks and social media, where the users are vital contributors to success.

What does it mean that a nation is 'Unscientific'?

(scienceblogs.com): An unscientific nation is one in which the government is not Reality Based. While it is unfortunate that countries are decision-makers on global policies, that is the reality right now and we need to work within a reality framework. There are also many other science-related policies that are not necessarily global but affect the lives, health and productivity of the citizens of an individual country, so the nation (aka it's government) is, for now, the appropriate place to focus on.
