My media week 18/04/10

Today’s Observer has a piece by Nick Cohen about author Simon Singh’s victory over the British Chiropractic Association in what I hope will prove to be a landmark case. Britain’s libel laws are a disgrace and in this case have been used by these charlatans to try to silence scientific criticism: Now charlatans will know to beware the geeks.

Counterpoint interviewed Peter Nowak who examines how our everyday lives have been shaped by Sex, Bombs and Burgers.

BBC’s The Interview talked to American tech guru Ray Kurzweil, about how technology could make death a thing of the past.
