Steve Wozniak, one of the founders of Apple Computer, recently decided to move from one mansion to another.  Why?  To get cellphone coverage, of course :)

For once the RIAA is being constructive, they have an initiative to track online music releases.  This doesn't do anything to prevent file sharing, but it does enable music to be identified for legitimate commerce.  Now if they would only charge what it is worth, like $.50 per song...\

MusicBrainz is a new community music metadatabase.  Kind of like Gracenote (aka CDDB) but with two big differences, they can identify music, not just CDs, and they're a .org, not a .com.

As an example of the power of the web, consider the flash mind reader...

 

We're down...

Well, we've been down since 8:30 AM PST.  It is raining, which consititutes a crisis here in Southern California, and apparently it has affected my data circuit...  My vendor is XO Communications, which uses Covad, which uses Verizon, so of course actually getting something repaired is nontrivial.  Sigh!
