Slashdot round-ups for Friend and Foe alike  
"The wars of the future will not be fought on the battlefield or at sea. They will be fought in space, or possibly on top of a very tall mountain.

Although I was disappointed to learn that it was <b>not</b>, in fact, about zombies, I did learn that there was a venture capital repo company called the Diablo Management Group.

<a href="http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/01/07/2332234&mode=nested&tid=126&tid=185&tid=95">Movie Pirates</a>.
