BTW, I'm blogging New Years from NY but I'm not going to make a big deal about it. I'm going to get some take-out Chinese food and read what everyone else is writing and if I spot anything interesting I'll link to it. Also, Halley comments that she's getting virtual kisses from strange guys because of the link below. Hey if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with. I didn't make that up. : One more thing, click on the pic of Doc above to immediately be transported into the alternate universe of Rageboy.
Halley: "There is always the feeling that everyone else is having a blast and you're the only idiot without a date, without a cool outfit, without a place to go and definitely without someone to kiss."
The thing I like about Lessig is that he has original ideas and he puts his money where his mouth is. In this post he offers a solution to spam, and says if it doesn't work he'll resign his job.
Thanks to the Trademark Blog for the pointer to Mecca-Cola, the soft drink for Muslims who want to boycott Coca-Cola. I subscribed to the Trademark Blog last week. Great stuff.
NY Times: "The biggest boost for Mecca-Cola, says Mr. Mathlouthi, a French citizen who immigrated from his native Tunisia in 1977, would be war in Iraq."
Lessig: "Where is the political party that demands respect for principles that I thought were fundamental."
Karlin Lillington picks up the same theme in the Irish Times. 'If you've done nothing wrong, you don't have to worry." Sounds like fascism. I bet they make the trains run on time too.
BlogTalk, the European conference on weblogs in May 2003, is developing nicely.
BBC: Wireless net takes over homes.
Mark Pilgrim: The tag soup of a new generation.
Oy. My Sprint cellphone just went bonkers. Spontaneously, while sitting in its battery charger, it rebooted, and then beeped, and shut down. Every time I power it up, it does the same damned thing. I called Sprint, after a half-hour wading through their phone support system, they have no idea what the problem is. I tried removing the battery, but it was no help. I bet there's some magic key combo I have to hit to get it to really reboot. So of course, I'll post a note on Scripting News and hope that someone has the answer. Their stores don't open till 11AM on Sundays, and the voicemail doesn't say anything about New Year's Eve. Any help would be much appreciated.
