what's hot what's not

News about News

The internet is transforming traditional news organizations. The ability to get news and information on the web faster than traditional venues is creating a profound change in the way we digest news.

Because of the changing presentation , I keep out an eye out for opinions on what other folks think about news on the web. I discovered Rick Stengel. He writes an Opinion for Time Magazine Online. I read the following piece and immediately sent him an attaboy for the strength of his piece. Based on this I also inquired about his continued employment prospects.

After I sent the email, I went back to read the piece again. I found a Bio link, and discovered that he is the Managing Editor. In a news organization the Managing Editor is the Big Cheese. This accounts for how it got published. This also points out that the head lemur can be a little quick on the email button. I spent a lot more time reading his earlier opinions.
You should give him a look. Highly recommended

My views on the DCMA are well known. The entire thing should be repealed back to the Copyright Act of 1976 and the WIPO should be disbanded and we should sue them to get our money back.

I am a Source Code Thief 09/1/01

My name is the head lemur and I am a recovering Source Code Thief!

I started in 1994 with my first internet connection. Netscape and Internet Explorer gave me the ability to peek behind the scenes. I thought that View Source would take me to the First Page of the Internet. It didn't.
