what's hot what's not
They Really Don't Get It Department
Just when you thought you had killed the banner ads, pop unders, interstituals, pop-ups, re-directs and your hosts.file is an embarrassing 529K comes the latest "innovation" in crapping up your screen with advertisements.
"People using anti-ad software...have the advantage to use our service but (not to) participate in the advertising system. But we need someone to pay the bill," said MediaBeam CEO Frank Beckhert, whose 15-person company has been testing AdKey for the last two weeks. "We just couldn't accept that people were using our service for free" anymore.
The world of Advertising believes that civilization will collapse without Them. If they are not the middlemen between you and companies that make stuff, you will become destitute and your life will become one long anxiety ridden episode of dumpster diving and panhandling.

Flash is one of those programs that you love or hate. Now I will hate it.
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.
