Sorry folks, but baby illness descended upon Casa del Mono like a mighty hammer of sniffle, cough, and discomfort, making sleep a non-starter last night. So of course that means good ol’ dad, who stayed up to help the girls woke up from his paltry 3 hours of sleep feeling like Thor had punched his brain. Ah, life.
Anyway, system functions have been partially restored, so at least I can throw down some low-impact links:
Wired has an interesting piece on culture of griefing, though at points the author seems to be a bit too sympathetic to the cause at times.
SF Weekly’s David Downs got craft with EFF activist Peter Eckersley to attempt to prove or disprove Comcast’s destruction of Bit Torrent traffic. (Tests show they do). Also a neat primer on the history of Bit Torrent.
The Center for Public Integrity has released a comprehensive database of the Bush Administration’s statements in the lead-up to our war in Iraq. Late in the day perhaps, but still more proof that we’ve been badly betrayed by those charged with the stewardship of this country.
And finally… If there was ever any doubt that the Republican Party has become the ‘win at all costs’ player (and most certainly to blame for the poisonous culture of politics for the last 12 years), look no further than the latest 527 group, Citizens United Not Timid, an anti-Hillary Clinton group headed up by much-respected sleazeball Roger Stone. I’ll let you think about that acronym for a minute.
