Rosenberg vs. Harwood
After being struck in 2009 by a car while walking in the dark on a busy highway in Park City, Utah, Lauren Rosenberg filed suit against the driver who hit her (Harwood) and against Google. Rosenberg blamed the walking directions given to her by Google Maps for landing her in the middle of dangerous traffic. Google carries a warning about the imperfect reliability of its directions. This summer, a judge threw the case out of court.

More Persecuted Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is opening a new exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum on April 18. But prior to an 81-day detention by Chinese authorities in 2011, Ai's passport was confiscated, and he cannot travel to coordinate or even see his own exhibit. The Brooklyn show includes "Sacred," a depiction of his incarceration in six dioramas, in its first North American appearance. National Geographic met and spoke with Ai in Beijing where he lives.
