what's hot what's not
Dinner at Lemurzone
The Public Library Association held their annual event in Phoenix this year. Two of the speakers for this event were Jeffrey Zeldman and Carrie Bickner. Since the head lemur doesn't travel much, they were kind enough to accept my invitation for dinner. They are even more gracious in person.
Once again librarians have made a difference in my life.
Also attending was Mark Newhouse from Tucson, whose work on CSS for Netscape 4 and recent article for A List Apart will make a significant impact on designing for the new browsers, while supporting the current legacy browser population.
Mark brought his Mac Laptop with him. I don't suffer from envy often, but I really want one of those.
Eldred v. Ashcroft
Eldred v. Ashcroft is a case being heard by the Supreme Court in an attempt to overturn the insane length of current copyright terms.
I emailed Lawrence Lessig as soon as I could to see what I could to help.
His reply is short and to the point.
Ok, we've set up a fund to cover the expenses in the case. None of the money contributed will be used for anything except Eldred expenses (ie, no lawyers fees), and any residual will be donated to an appropriate charity.
That being said, Here is where to send money.
"Eldred Legal Defense Fund"
I have sent my first $100 dollars this morning.
It is Your Turn.....
FindLaw has a interesting article on the upcoming Eldritch vs Ashcroft case being heard by the Supremes.
