Topic: Tech Industry 7:18 pm EDT, Oct 15, 2003

Soon after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) implements its wireless number portability rules on Nov. 24, it's expected that most phone customers will also be able to keep the same number when they switch from regular landline to wireless service. And as that happens, telemarketers almost certainly will start reaching people via their mobile phones.

Analysis of an Electronic Voting System
Topic: Technology 3:57 pm EDT, Aug 26, 2003

] Recent election problems have sparked great interest in
] managing the election process through the use of
] electronic voting systems. While computer scientists, for
] the most part, have been warning of the perils of such
] action, vendors have forged ahead with their products,
] claiming increased security and reliability. Many
] municipalities have adopted electronic systems, and the
] number of deployed systems is rising. For these new
] computerized voting systems, neither source code nor the
] results of any third-party certification analyses have
] been available for the general population to study,
] because vendors claim that secrecy is a necessary
] requirement to keep their systems secure. Recently,
] however, the source code purporting to be the software
] for a voting system from a major manufacturer appeared on
] the Internet. This manufacturer's systems were used in
] Georgia's state-wide elections in 2002, and the company
] just announced that the state of Maryland awarded them an
] order valued at up to $55.6 million to deliver touch
] screen voting systems.

The press claims this paper is discredited because Avi Rubin was involved with an electronic voting company. Read it for yourself and see what you think.

Wired News: Bloggers Gain Libel Protection
Topic: Current Events 3:21 pm EDT, Jul  1, 2003

] The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last Tuesday
] that Web loggers, website operators and e-mail list
] editors can't be held responsible for libel for
] information they republish, extending crucial First
] Amendment protections to do-it-yourself online
] publishers.
] Online free speech advocates praised the decision as a
] victory. The ruling effectively differentiates
] conventional news media, which can be sued relatively
] easily for libel, from certain forms of online
] communication such as moderated e-mail lists. One
] implication is that DIY publishers like bloggers cannot
] be sued as easily.

Just a little good news.

Yo La Tengo, Breeders on Hedwig Tribute

Tommy Gnosis taking turns "breathing with" Deal sisters

Ryan Goldman reports:
Wigheads are a weird and wonderful bunch. Despite the fact that The Angry Inch is a completely fictitious rock group and that Hedwig never really reached the mainstream audience that lesser, oh-so-1990s musicals like Rent and Urinetown did, fans of the cabaret-turned-Off-Broadway-play-turned-major-motion-picture have raised John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's first production from a mere pop phenomenon to a nationwide-- nay, worldwide-- cult movement. Now, to go along with the local performances, soundtracks, DVDs, fan conventions, and Songs from the Oven: East Berlin Is for Children! (totally replaces Free to Be... You and Me as required listening in those formative years), Portland, Oregon's Off Records is compiling Wig in a Box, a tribute album of songs from and inspired by the show and movie, Hedwig & The Angry Inch.
