Today's video of the day is Franky Zapata setting the new hoverboard record flight with his prototype Flyboard Air.  People have been enamored by hoverboards since at least Back to the Future and probably before.  As the technology starts to catch up people are always curious to see video of the flights.  Could you imagine if we had YouTube and video when the Wright Brothers made their first flight?

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
