The Daily Outrage: Grant funding evolution of social networks 

WHO: National Science Foundation

WHAT: The NSF gave a $750,000 research grant to engineering researchers at Michigan State University.

WHY IT’S WRONG: The money will be sent to study how large-scale social networks “change over time.” Instead of designing 21st-century solutions to the nation’s problems, they will be studying Wikipedia and watching YouTube.

WHERE TO VENT: Call the NSF at (703) 292-5111.
