Should I Change My Name on Twitter for Halloween? A Discussion — Twitter can be kind of a mean place. Kind of a really mean place, actually, where people like to gang up on others and most jokes are at the expense of someone, somewhere.

On the Front Lines of New York City's War on Rats — A 14-second video of a small gray rat carrying an entire slice of pizza into the New York City subway captured the hearts and minds of netizens this week.

A Star Is Rebooted — Not long ago, Stephan Paternot, former C.E.O. of the tremendous dot-com failure known as, decided he'd make a pretty great movie star and relocated to Los Angeles for a couple of months.

Tattoos I Have Not Gotten — 2005: My best friend and I decided to get dinosaur tattoos. Me: raptor, inside of right wrist, in white. Her: brontosaurus (RIP) [ or not ?], somewhere inconspicuous, in black outline. We decided to think about it for a year and then get them if we still wanted them.

This Time, It’s Personal — Technology touches everything, but it can often seem distant and lifeless. At Motherboard, we try to make every story relevant on a human level, but it's not always easy when you're writing about supersymmetry and light-based computers.
