Georgia to get new tags
Topic: Local Information 7:27 pm EDT, Sep 18, 2006

Fans of Georgia's current license plates might feel a little blue when they see the new tag design unveiled by the Department of Revenue.

The new plates will take the place of the white tags with the phrase "Georgia ... on my mind" at the top and the gray and white plates centered on a green drawing of the state surrounded by a huge peach symbol.

Instead, the plates will feature white letters on a dark blue background that also includes the state's emblem. The plates will still contain a reference to the state's Web site, with the top banner reading A peach serves as the "o" in "gov."

Besides the design, there will be a few other changes to the new tags. Because of new technology, the plates will be flat instead of having embossed letters, though tags issued early might still have the numbers and letters pounded into them.

Another innovation that might not make the first set of plates is a bar code that will help police officers and state troopers get some information from the plate simply by passing a scanner over it.

The state still isn't sure what information the bar codes will contain.

"We've got to look at what the requirements are from the law enforcement standpoint and then, also, we've got to look at the privacy issues," Willey said.

MemeStreams is yet anothe blog hosting server. It may not be as feature rich as Blogspot. But what I liked most there is their categorization, as well as the ability to see the posts in a specific category from all the members there. Here you are how they define themselves.

MemeStreams is a social web surfing tool that helps communities of people work together to find interesting content on the Internet. It allows you to maintain collections of recommendations for Internet content, and it employs state of the art content rating technology to sort through your friends' and colleagues' recommendations in search of information that matters to you.

As you may have noticed, they have a social network as well. Finally it is really interesting that people like Michael Lynn (Abaddon) and Billy Hoffman (Acidus) are having their blogs hosted there.

Wow I didn't realize Billy and Mike had their own wikipedia articles. Moving up in the world there boys.

Crime Scene Photographs

] "Toronto Crime Stoppers" posts crime scene photos in which
] victim(s) and perpetrator(s) have been digitally removed. The
] batch of images linked in this post once depicted acts of violent
] sexual abuse of a nine-year-old girl, but now contain only
] inanimate objects -- a sofa, a bed, a wall, a water fountain.
] They're published online with a public request that anyone who
] recognizes the site contact authorities.

This is an interesting technique.

Kevin Shelley Addresses Voting Systems Panel

] The core of our American democracy, members, is the right
] to vote. And implicit in that right is the notion that
] that vote be private, that vote be secure, and that vote
] be counted as it was intended when it was cast by the
] voter. I think what we're encountering is a pivotal
] moment in our democracy where all that is being called
] into question the privacy of the vote, the
] security of the vote, and the accuracy of the vote. It
] troubles me, and it should trouble you.

After a lengthy discussion with my grandmother who has worked the polls of every election for the past 45 years I was doing some research and ran across this quote by Kevin Shelley (CA secretary of state).
