Cam on polotics

Poli-Babble: It's becoming pretty clear to me that I'm likely going to vote for Gore next month, but I fear that Bush will ultimately win. I look at it this way: I'd prefer Gore to be our next President, as I think he'd be the best choice for the country as a whole, but I also recognize the fact that I would likely benefit more from Bush than I would Gore considering my income level, tax bracket, and monetary investments. For me, it's a conscious decision I need to make: Do I vote for the candidate who I think is best for the country and economy, or the candidate who I think is best for me?

2000:October:Feature:Build a better buggy whip

The most dangerous of these mistakes is continuing to equate publishing with broadcast. The broadcast mentality colors nearly all corporate assumptions about the conduct of business overall. It is so deeply ingrained that its principles are taken for granted-universally accepted axioms that are transparent to the point of invisibility. Effective publishing is about delivering relevant information to the widest possible audience, right? Wrong. In the era of the Web, publishing will only be effective if it conveys suggestive stories that elicit discourse and debate from the most knowledgeable and tightly focused communities of interest.

SDMI cracked!

Hackers break the recording industry's vaunted music protection system.

The Music Industry, the executives and their respective companies, "just don't get it." They are fighting a loosing battle. Eventually they will loose in the courts/law like they are loosing on the technology. There are more music listeners than producers and sellers. The war of attrition is in full swing.

Pretty much everyone agrees on two things: the Cube is cool and the Cube is overpriced. Cool is good. Overpriced is bad.

Howdy all. I am in Canada, Vancover area (Abbotsford and Chilkuwac). I finally entered the country, after many problems which maybe detailed later (just don't mention "body cavity search" around me for a while :), on Saturday.

So far everyone up here is trey cool. Time to get some work done.
