what's hot what's not

Formal expression of opinion

The EFF has created a page to voice your opposition to the Berman Bill, which would give copyright holders what amount to Letters of Marque, to hack and disable personal computers.

From the comfort of your chair you can send your representitive a letter in opposition to this bill which will only add more power to the "Entertainment Industry Congressional Welfare Program" and allow them to turn the internet into a gated community for themselves.

FTC and Verisign and Interland Oh MY..

this really warms the cockles of my heart

"The FTC, which was not available for comment, also is asking the company whether it had any role in approving Web hosting company Interland Inc.'s INLD.O solicitation for domain name services, VeriSign spokesman Brian O'Shaugnessy confirmed. No one was available at Atlanta-based Interland to comment."

I have a lot of things to tell the FTC about Interland's Slamming of one of my clients domains which almost cost them their domain.

I will be expanding on this one. Sell Interland Stock now!

Responsive Politics

The only way that you will ever get a response is to apply a stimulus. A crude but graphic example goes like this: The OUCH that is a response to a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

Politicians by their very nature are herd animals. Good politicians can smell a trend and get in front to give the appearance of leadership. They respond to stimulus. In order of impact we currently have MONEY, VOTES and principles as stimuli.

Money is winning. Abstentions as a form of protest has brought us to this point. As individuals we only have votes. This year bring two friends with you to the voting booth.
