Day Against DRM : October 3

Taking a subject more near and dear to Adam's heart, Defective By Design has October 3rd announced as "Day Against DRM". That's a little better than the passive-aggressive I-won't-buy-your-crap I had planned; I'm impressed with social activism like… more »

From The Ground Up

'Tis a sad thing - it looks like the server my site was on was essentially razed by a hacker. I'll pass along more details as I get them. Rather sad about the timing - I'd been having troubles getting a backup generated for a very long time, but was… more »

Coulter and Carlin on Leno

Tomorrow night (June 14th) on Leno: both right-wing hatemonger Ann Coulter and visceral ol' hippy George Carlin will be on. Will they directly address one another at all? Will they have each other's love children? I'm going to try to stay conscious… more »
