Not so Fast Department

One-third of states involved reject settlement with federal regulators.

NEW YORK (CNNmoney) - Microsoft Corp.'s pact to settle its antitrust case with the federal government was rejected Tuesday by a third of the 18 states party to the lawsuit, according to one of the states' attorneys.

Not everybody believes what's good for Bill is good for you.

This nugget will go down in history:

Microsoft attorney John Warden said the company would consider settlement talks ended as of 1:00 p.m. ET Tuesday, saying the issues in the case have been "beaten to death," particularly after negotiations with some of the states that he said lasted all night.

See ya in Court!

On Monday, Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly became the first attorney general to come out on the record opposed to the deal, which would end a four-year ordeal for the Redmond, Wash.-based company.

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.

No RAND for Me

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.
