finding that would surprise most Americans is that the American dream is something of a fraud. Intergenerational social mobility–your chances of moving up from poverty, or down from great wealth–are lower in the US than in most of Europe. This is something I have written about before. Research suggests plenty of mobility in the middle part of US income

Top Stories for the Week of February 15-19, 2010

image Suddenly the Olympics are awesome again!, Business Insider blogged late Wednesday after Shaun White totally blew away the Olympic half pipe. Awesome because of White’s crazy Double McTwist 1260, or the mild obscenity NBC aired by mistake? Probably both! After White’s first-run score was enough to win the gold, he wasn’t sure if he even needed do take a second run but decided to make it memorable. “Drop a double-mick at the end?” said White to his coach. “Yeah, drop a double mick,” said his coach. “Make sure you stomp the s#!t out of it.” He did. NBC has the video of the insane move (not the bad word) here.

she wanted to adopt a retarded child,” says TechCrunch. “Like other comedians lately, she was using the word to remove its power to hurt people, and as a jab at Governor Palin’s recent jihadChris Anderson Tweeted: “I know I shouldn’t say this about one of my own speakers, but I thought Sarah Silverman was god-awful…” And the flame war was on. Trueslant has the whole sordid Tweetroll, including Steve Case (remember him?) jumping in and Silverman tweeting back “You should be nicer to the last person on Earth with an AOL account.” Scobleizer says her talk was repulsive and challenging and “TED needs more Sarah Silvermans who will try content experiments out on stage.” Anderson on his own TEDChris blog offers some final thoughts: “Call me stuffy, but I still think humor about terminally-ill “retarded” kids is an acquired taste.

Well, also “the hillsides of Port au Prince to the streets of Tehran.” Though the killer app still seems to be mashing up other people’s content without paying royalties, letting others get it for free. Now YouTube moves ahead: “whether we’re supporting 1080p, 3D, or deploying auto-speech recognition technology, we innovate with an eye toward providing the best possible experience for all of you,” the founders say. Really? Some think YouTube may even turn a profit in 2010, NewTeeVee has noted.

, several girls who disconnected after seeing my face (but not before I caught the looks of disgust on theirs), 3 couples having sex…” Hey–giving people a voice! Bits tracked down the creator, Andrey Ternovskiy, a 17-year-old high school student in Moscow, who said he had “no business goals” in starting it and his bandwidth bills are getting huge. Sounds ripe for a Google takeover! Concludes Business Insider: “It’s basically Russian Roulette for Webcams.” Good one.
