Um, I would venture to guess that 90% of the articles on Memestreams are generated by this user. If this is indeed a human, I'd like to know what they do for a living, other than read articles online and post them on Memestreams. I check the site almost daily and there's absolutely no way I could ever read the amount of material generated by this user. Much less absorb it, comment on it, and pontificate about it. What's up?

Bahahaha...this is an awesome thread. Jeremy is WAY more productive than 5 grad students put together...he puts us all to shame with his brilliance:)

Georgia to get new tags

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.

Ummmm....don't they mean police officers, state troopers, and any number of people smart enough to "hack" a simple bar code....hrm.

Weblogs, Information, and Society | Event at UC Berkeley
Topic: Local Information 1:59 am EDT, Apr  9, 2003

UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism is hosting an event entitled "Weblogs, Information, and Society" on April 10.

Speakers include: Dan Gillmor, San Jose Mercury News; Ross Mayfield, CEO of Socialtext; Donna Wentworth, Harvard's Berkman Center; Ed Felten, Princeton; Scott Rosenberg, Salon; and Ernest Miller, LawMeme.

Description: The Weblogs Information and Society panel draws webloggers from academe, business, and journalism to explore how weblogs continue to change the way groups and individuals work, learn, and communicate.

The panel will also explore how weblogs, and social software in particular, facilitate civic and creative engagement by increasing the fluidity of information between individuals and organizations. This developing relationship between weblogs, information, and society is significant and deserves further discussion.

I went. It was pretty long, I think it ran about 4 hours total. The majority of what I remember was from his latest spoken word album. Jello definately has a stage presence that you just have to see. He did his older "what passes for news in the US" bit where he talks about Time and Newsweek covers. It was fun to actually see him holding up the magazines while doing the bit. He also held up a "Tipper Rocks!" campaign swag item from some Democratic convention he got into. That bit was pretty damn funny.

He had a lot to say at one point about the blowback we can expect from what we're doing in the mideast. I tried to keep up but it went by pretty fast. He hit the bullet points about the warring factions and tribal relationships. I haven't heard that bit recorded anywhere before. He's been doing his homework on this though. Interesting to note that while he was discussing this the showmanship was gone, he wasn't looking down at his papers. He was pretty somber when discussing the blowback.

I brought my MD out but I only got the last couple hours or so, I'll encode it at some point and share. Words were spoken at the end that we should become the media. I can't agree more.

[Damn...I had no idea he was even going to be in town - Nano]
