Interesting post by Richard Fernandez (aka Wretchard the Cat) regarding the problem increasingly sophisticated information technologies present to repressive regimes and existing media empires. Nothing particularly new for anyone who has taken the time to think about it, but interesting nonetheless.
Yes, Aziz, that Richard Fernandez.
Via Insty. Apparently he’s coherent, but partially paralyzed.
One of my favorite bloggers ever.
And in the parlance of the time, he made me feel emotions in cyber space that most people thought were limited to meat space.
And he still does.
Prayers and best wishes to you, Steven!
Hey there! Remember this?
I have to admit, I’ve been spending more time on Facebook, and my job has consumed me for the last few months. I’m not complaining though!
I’ve still read every word posted here at Dean’s World (on the front page and in the comments). I just haven’t responded as much.
That doesn’t mean I’m not interested!
So let’s get some music going.
Vodkapundit is one of the three blogs I’ve followed intently for at least a decade (Dean’s World and Instapundit being the other two). Wow, that’s a long time!
Stephen has started a Friday night jazz thread, which is usually pretty good. I’ve listened to last week’s post about 20 times!
I’ve also been into Dio lately. Man, I don’t know how I missed his awesomeness during my teenage years. I was vaguely appreciative of him then. But now, I love him (may he RIP)!
And then there’s this. I think will be the biggest hit of the last 5 years. Pure awesomeness! And wow, 50 years of James Bond. Still kicken for a cold war relic. But the themes are timeless.
RIP, Sally. You were a hero to me.
And that was before I knew you were the first lesbian to make it into space…
In all seriousness, I thought this song was about her!
She most certainly deserves respect. And I have no doubt; her place in history is secure.
