iScroll 4 is the latest version and release of an excellent content slider-type JavaScript component by Matteo Spinelli. While one may argue that content sliders are a dime a dozen, iScroll differs in the fact that it has full support for all the main WebKit for iOS gestures including pinch/zoom, pull-up/pull-down, smooth scrolling and screen orientation resizing; while also allowing customizable scrollbars, automatic carousels, and much more.

BC$ = Behavior, Content, Money

The goal of the BC$ project is to raise awareness and make changes with respect to the three pillars of information freedom - Behavior (pursuit of interests and passions), Content (sharing/exchanging ideas in various formats), Money (fairness and accessibility) - bringing to light the fact that:

1. We regularly hand over our browser histories, search histories and daily online activities to companies that want our money, or, to benefit from our use of their services with lucrative ad deals or sales of personal information.

2. We create and/or consume interesting content on their services, but we aren't adequately rewarded for our creative efforts or loyalty.

3. We pay money to be connected online (and possibly also over mobile), yet we lose both time and money by allowing companies to market to us with unsolicited advertisements, irrelevant product offers and unfairly structured service pricing plans.
