Video Games Are Missing Black Voices (Literally) — Image: Naughty Dog via Playstation Nation/YouTube Last week, Motherboard ran a story about Nadine Ross, the strong, black, female antagonist in the upcoming Uncharted 4, who is played by a white voice actress. This is no surprise; black female characters in video games are rarely voiced by black women.

A Practical Guide to Sleep Hacking Your Room — Photo: Bahador/Flickr What makes a bedroom, a bedroom? Let's say it starts with four walls and a bed. Add pillows and a blanket. No one can deny that this is a bedroom, a room for sleeping. It's when you ask whether it's a good room for sleeping that things get more complicated.

In Growing Spat, Facebook Claims India Telecom Regulator Blocked Its Emails — Facebook and the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, or TRAI, are engaged in a snippy epistolary argument as the agency prepares to write new policy that would affect Free Basics, Facebook's discounted internet offering. Now, in the manner of a passive-aggressive spat between roommates, Facebook has accused the agency-or at least, someone within the agency-of blocking its emails.

Why Americans Should Pay Attention to What Facebook Is Doing in India — If you live in India, or happen to have visited in the past month, you probably noticed the seemingly-ubiquitous advertising for something called Free Basics. It's what you might call a full-court press: full-page ads in newspapers, billboards, and movie theater trailers.

Podcast!… This week, why Americans should pay attention to what Facebook is doing in India.

Facebook Cofounder Chris Hughes Sold Jumo for $62K and Five MacBook Pros — Back in August, Fast Company reported that Facebook cofounder Chris Hughes had sold his startup Jumo, a social network to connect people to nonprofits, to GOOD, the magazine publisher and digital media platform, for undisclosed terms. Betabeat reported the terms were for $0 and a graceful exit.

Transhumanists, in Their Own Words — Transhumanism, the idea that humans should use science and technology to extend our natural abilities, is the religion of the 21st century. It's a concept that has been around since the 70s, but seems to be resonating with a growing number of people.

The Black Community Needs Encryption — Ever heard of a cryptoparty? It's a gathering of people interested in privacy and encryption. You'll often hear of cryptoparties in association with techy, geeky spaces or organizations, and they're usually dominated by computer-savvy nerds who are often male or white or both-Edward Snowden types, basically.

Future of Sleep: Call for Pitches for Our January Theme Week — "You'll sleep when you're dead." The Motherboard team recently had an argument over the meaning of this phrase: half of us thought it was a bad thing, like you're working so hard that you won't sleep until you're dead, while the other half thought it was a good thing, like, you'll have plenty of time to sleep when you're dead so you should live life to the fullest now.
