Long live St. Jude.

St. Jude is dead. Senior editor of influential cyberculture magazine Mondo 2000 (the magazine that arguably inspired Wired) and the original grrl-hacker, dead at age unknown. She coined the term "cypherpunk," wrote interesting books, and encouraged every girl to get online.

Everquest claims a child's life,

Everquest claims a child's life, from the fatal neglect of a game-addicted father. Sentenced to 15 years in prison, the deadbeat dad squeezed his 9-month-old son and left him in a utility closet for over 24 hours while he played online. According to the prosecution, his son's crying was distracting him from the game.

I've been addicted to games before, and Everquest definitely has a reputation for being one of the most addictive games ever, but this is just evil.
