So, it wasn't criminal act, was it? He closed down his organisation so that they couldn't force him to work for them as their secret snitch-bitch. The 'authorities' would love to make that illegal and are probably working on secret laws to give them that power.
'The land of the free'. Where is that place?

I wonder if anyone has done some kind of usage analysis of how people use Google services, what convenience and benefit the services give to the user and how much those services are actually worth to the average user. (Note: Watching cat videos does not have a high, if any, value to a sane user, no matter how much it costs to host the videos or deliver them.)
My use of free online newspapers means that I save enough money every month to pay for my cable internet connection, an easily calculated benefit. What does Google do for me (or Josephine Average) and how much _should_ I/we be willing to pay for it?
... the photons are not so much 'bound together' but are constrained to act in a certain way due to some fundamental requirement involving allowed energy levels in what is some kind of quantum solid (the ultra cold rubidium). The overall effect is that they have to hold hands inside the rubidium 'crystal' I think a similar thing happens with Cooper pairs of elecrons in a superconductor. Life is never simple is it?
... an outside thermometer/display in the form of a 2 inch square sheet that is stuck to the outside surface of the window and uses e-ink display that is updated every 15 minutes (or whatever). If the internal battery runs low then it can put up a 'please use the microwave' symbol.
" ...a summary: two Apple employees interview ..."
I could be bothered to watch it. I saw two product developers presenting a summary of their efforts to two different senior staff in various weekly (?) meetings.
Then again, maybe it was a series of therapy sessions where the two developers try to explore the source of their discomfort.
If you consider the size of France and Germany (as a European example) and their short distance apart, we don't express surprise that the people in those two regions/countries speak in different languages. Then consider the size of the regions of China and their geographical separation from each other.
For as long as I can remember, I've had cars where the steering wheel blocks my view of the speedo between about 65mph and 90mph; a critical range. I wish more car makers would take this into account.
Apart from that, I don't like badgery and I'd prefer black flashing instead of red.
Assuming that I follow what you are saying, would it be more correct to describe that as a 'measured/observed interaction in a Quantum Field'? Are you saying that photons are an intellectul construct of the observer? What does that imply for all the other force/field interaction particles, including the Higgs boson?
