Wow, Ralph Nader has done something! In his first impingement on my consciousness since election, he has written a letter to the DOJ complaining about their completely wimpy settlement with Microsoft. It roasts them thoroughly -- as it deserves to, since the settlement is awful and has clauses that are specifically written to lock out open-source software from the Windows API because it doesn't have a "viable business model" (it doesn't have any business model, stupid!). Yay, Ralph!
A really oh-wow article from the Guardian about Internet2 and Geant (the latter being the EU version, and faster since it was built later) including fun speculation about new uses of ridiculously high bandwidth. How long until Society of the Mind becomes reality? (Good book, by the way.)
And finally, here's a girl who really should be a lesbian, if only because it would be such a waste otherwise.
