VerdictlessBlendover Episode Twenty Eight:

We know. We’re tired of the overcoverage of the Zimmerman thing too. So for this week’s Blendover, we decided to shake it up a bit: We briefly touch on NSA drama, but follow up our Mandela Watch, while Microsoft reorganizes in light of criticisms. As promised we follow-up on the Lac-Mégantic Derailment and Explosion in Canada. Blendover is happily “verdictless” this week, and we hope you come along for the ride.
