staff:

Welcome to the second installment of our government transparency report, where we explain in (hopefully not boring) detail the government requests we receive for account information, and how we respond to those requests. 
How many requests? From January to June 2014, we provided information—either user data or blog content—for 84% of the requests made, covering 199 blog URLs. This represents approximately 0.00010% of all blogs on Tumblr. Not a huge number, but this is about full disclosure, no matter what the scale. 
Also in this report: some emerging trends in the data, and some information about our improved user notice policy. Plus: a few additional gems to keep you fully educated about when the government is requesting your information, and what we’re doing to defend your rights. 
We take the privacy of your information seriously, as you know, and we’ll be auditing ourselves twice a year from here on out. Look for our next report in early 2015.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters’ theatrical release, so this epic embroidered Ghostbusters sampler by Tumblr user andthenshewaslike is awesomely appropriate!

Many people object to “wasting money in space” yet have no idea how much is actually spent on space exploration. The CSA’s budget, for instance, is less than the amount Canadians spend on Halloween candy every year, and most of it goes toward things like developing telecommunications satellites and radar systems to provide data for weather and air quality forecasts, environmental monitoring and climate change studies. Similarly, NASA’s budget is not spent in space but right here on Earth, where it’s invested in American businesses and universities, and where it also pays dividends, creating new jobs, new technologies and even whole new industries.

Just spent twenty minutes stick handling in my (new) garage. Now researching shooting tiles and nets.
