what's hot what's not
Forging the Microsoft Passport
In another bold rush to market, Microsoft has yet again allowed your personal information to be available to folks who would use your personal information against you. An email to a Hotmail account, a little scripting, and you can discover a world of personal information, like credit card numbers, and other personal information.
Yes Virginia, there are no lights on, nor is anybody home in Redmond in the security and testing sections.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have won the World Series. The second story on the local TV news channels is about the long lines to buy world series merchandise. As if that will make your life better.
The Cheating of the American people
The proposed anti-trust settlement with Microsoft is the biggest breach of faith with the american people. It truly is historic. Dan Gillmor is a lot more eloquent than I.
P i x e l v i e w
The web is a profound tapestry of images, thoughts, ideas and opinions. The majority of the web is created by individuals. These individuals shape and expand the communication possibilities of this medium. P i x e l v i e w will be a new section of lemurzone devoted to exploring why they do it, what they do and what they hope.
The web works because HTML is an open system.
The majority of what you see on your screen is written in Hyper Text Markup Language. This language has been carefully created to extend the capabilities of what can be communicated from one computer to another. The source for this is the W3C World Wide Web Consortium.
The W3C holds a special position in our little world. We in concert, without clubs, memberships, secret handshakes, or free mouse pads, have decided to agree on the W3C Recommendations as the stone tablets of our universe of the web. We are here as these 'standards' are non-propriatary, open source, and do not 'belong' to anybody. This means that we have a baseline to begin our exploration and experimentation with what we can get to show up in a browser.
