Blogging to stop the logging.

Treetop Bloggers Protest Logging A group of anti-logging activists are now ready to maintain their own blog 130 feet up in an ancient redwood. I've considered tree sitting, but find myself much more inclined to do so if I could continue working (or reading MeFi, as the case may be). Interesting intersection of technology and activism. Doncha think? (via /.)

The Ancient Library Of Alexandria:

The Ancient Library Of Alexandria: Its long-awaited re-opening has been postponed, supposedly because of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. So it seems the age-old dream of historians and poets everywhere(Jorge Luís Borges comes to mind)will have to wait a bit longer... I wonder, though, if Egypt's ever-stricter censorship laws and practices will ever be compatible with a true, universal library such as, by most accounts, the original Alexandria Library was.[Via Nutcote]

AirSnort.

AirSnort. The dangerous app with the unlikely name allows users to snatch data being passed over wireless networks, eventually capturing passwords to the network.

B61-11 tactical micro-nuke headed for Afghanistan?

B61-11 tactical micro-nuke headed for Afghanistan? Though large "theater" thermonuclear devices -- doomsday bombs -- don't fit the Bush administration's war on terrorism, smaller tactical nukes do not seem out of the question in the current mindset of the Defense Department. Rumsfield avoided answering the question of whether the use of tactical nuclear weapons could be ruled out. What kind of nuclear fallout would a weapon like this cause?

When the commercial sectors of our suburbs and cities fall, and our entire way of life changes, will we live in stores like Fred Meyers? It's a question posed by not only singer Glen Phillips, but an oldish Wired article as well. [more...]

Is the Revolution really over?

Is the Revolution really over? According to Wired it is, “…one day, the digital revolution was over. The big media companies wrested control of the Internet from the kids in the horned-rimmed glasses.” Derek has his comments on this but to add my own, nothing new and exciting happens anymore.

The Internet has become synonymous for pink slips, mergers, and legal battles.

I know there was a previous link to this article but I was inspired by Derek to bring a different matter to the table.

"e-mail" vs. "email" - Wired declares style guidelines (again)

"e-mail" vs. "email" - Wired declares style guidelines (again) - so in today's Wired News (lycos.wired.com, not wired magazine), there's a long explanatory article about a change in Wired News' style standards. A) do declarations from Wired News matter much anymore? B) is "e-mail" really 'more proper' than "email". To me, the hyphen looks amateurish and silly, but I'm too close to this to be objective.

Nader debates Gore advisor this week

Nader debates Gore advisor this week They might not let him debate Gore face to face, but hey, at least this is something. Way to put the issues on the table, Ralph.

Assasination Politics?

Assasination Politics? Does your email address end in .gov? Watch out, then, because cypherpunk and convicted tax evader Jim Bell might be out to get you, and his plans don't sound especially pleasant. The meat of the Wired piece is on page three:

It's a sign of the times.

It's a sign of the times. Wired News now has the Lycos Network navigation at the top of each of the news pages. Can HotLycos be far behind?

This cool tool

This cool tool grabs Wired News headlines and randomly assembles them into phrases of marketing-ese. Here's a good example: 'Savvy middleware is wiring the planetwide medium of the hyper village.'
