'Telecommuting' In Formula 1
What if the cars drove themselves too?!?!
Ohh wait! They've been doing that for years!
Open Data and a Critical Citizenry

Many people teach themselves all kinds of extraordinary talents these day. Have you looked around youtube recently? You don't have to be a geek to be interested in learning after college age.
Examples from just one subject:
I for one, assumed all of this data would be owned and sold by companies, making it scarce. Today's business runs on information, though.

Things you know:
1. Phase of the moon. (It would be trivial even for the ancients to keep track of the phases of the moon since the equinox.)
