This article on Slashdot says that the supreme court doesn’t want to legislate morality. That’s about the best thing a good libertarian could expect to hear. Now if only they’d uphold my right to be wrong (like eating a Hardee’s Thickburger, or not saving for retirement) then I’d be pretty set.
I just saw this article about a satanist who was assaulted because of his religion. His assaulters are being charged with a hate crime. As soon as I saw the article, I started looking around for the most biased article I could find that said something along the lines of “it’s a hate crime if they attack something I like, but if it’s some satanist it’s almost an act of goodwill!” but I couldn’t find anything like that. It seems most reporters at least are accepting that under hate crime legislation, satanism is just as protected as christianity, hinduism, or islam. In fact, the only person speaking out is Joseph Seehusen of the Libertarian Party. In this article he seems a bit biased, but it seems that he’s trying to direct people’s biased anger toward the legislation itself to get it repealed.
This semester is going to be hard, but really cool! I’m interested in every one of my classes except for web design, which I took intentionally as a blow off. Hopefully I can get some more productive work done in that class since it takes place in a computer lab. w00t!
I don’t know if I’m repulsed or aroused by this.
This is my last post from the office. I’m not going to be working during the semester so I can focus on SkyBlue Mobile, and hopefully that takes off and I work full time there. Hostway’s been fantastic, but I can’t give up the chance with a startup. Although I’m certainly going to miss some of the eye candy around the office.
And for some humor in this post, check out this quote I just pulled from someone’s away message: “It takes lots of drunk dads missing dance recitals before you decide to blow a goat on the internet for fifty bucks. And if that disappears, where does that leave me on a Friday night with my new high speed connection?”
As anyone who knows me can probably tell you, I’m exceedingly interested in decentralized networks. As soon as bittorrent came out I’ve wanted to produce something to further the effort. I was going to make a multiple-download client, but then many came out before I got started. Then, when rumors of a decentralized bittorrent started circulating and more specific talk of eXeem surfaced, I got really excited about a fully decentralized swarming download network. I have decided that I will create a decentralized bittorrent network, possibly as a component of a larger project. I have begun some preliminary design work already and have only a few problems left to overcome (until I can start looking at the next set of problems ) and I’m really excited about the whole thing.
Anyway, the reason I went off on that tangent was because of this article that does a good job of articulating the decentralized bittorrent idea. It’s worth a read for your inner philosopher-geek.
This thing is cool. I’ve always been a bit “Mac-curious,” and now I can quench that curiosity without spending an arm and a leg. I’ll probably get one of these eventually, though not any time soon.
