If you're puttering around looking for something to do, and have HBO, at 6PM Pacific on HBO Family, they're showing a really great movie, Regarding Henry. It's about a life that changes in a good way as a result of something most people (including me) would think of as a disaster. I saw it a few weeks ago and can safely say it changed the way I think in a deep way. Not many movies do that. 

Newsweek: "Larry Lessig admits it: hes nervous." 

A picture named dubya.gifI got a voicemail yesterday from President George W Bush. It wasn't really a personal message. He'd like me to support his candidates. He didn't leave a number to call him back at. If he had, I would have thanked him for the call, and would have told him that I did not plan to vote for his great Republican candidates. I guess it's kind of rude to leave a voicemail without a number. Maybe he assumes I already have it. What do you think? 

A picture named wow.gifFaisal Jawdat notes that the President has a Web site, with a page of contact info, including several phone numbers. It's not clear which one he picks up. We're getting closer! Perhaps I'll get to talk with him. I'm beginning to get an idea of what we'll talk about.  

At 4:30PM, I checked my email. Forty messages. All spam. Every one of them.  

Zeldman froths over Microsoft's use of the font tag, which is legal HTML, though it's been deprecated by the W3C.
