what's hot what's not

That's Entertainment, NOT!!

The general purpose computer has evolved from a expensive word processor to a commodity item of power and speed orders of magnitude beyond the most optimistic projections of the 1980's when they became available. The creation and acceptance of the Internet and the growth of the Web has created one of the most significant events in the spread of knowledge since the beginning of time.

Your computer has given you the ability to read the thoughts of others, see images of people and places that you may never visit, experience the creative output of people in the arts, sciences,and literature, in displays of text, color, video and sound.

Your ability to enjoy music, video, and literature, is in danger from the entertainment industry and their Congressional Sock Puppets.

The men who call you thieves

Your freedom and rights to select where you would like to go, what you will see and what you can do with your personal property is being carved up by industries that are no longer entertaining.

The Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Act is the next chapter in controlling your rights on a personal and professional level. This is the newest version of the Security Systems Standards and Certification Act" (SSSCA) which was designed to cripple your computer with digital rights management software and hardware.

On March 21st, Senator Hollings officially announced the Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act (CBDTPA), formerly known as the SSSCA. Not only will this bill further erode your personal use rights, but it will mandate that every electronic media device must be built with goverment- standardized security technology.
