Hijackers' e-mails sifted for clues
Misc.
'Federal authorities believe that some of the 19 hijackers involved in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were using computers in all-night Kinko's stores and cybercafes in South Florida to coordinate their activities in the weeks before the assaults. Investigators have amassed what they described as a "substantial" amount of e-mail traffic among the hijackers.'

'None of the communications, authorities said Sunday, involved the use of encryption or other code to disguise the contents of the messages.'

DaveNet : Patents and the W3C
Patents
'The W3C is a consortium of companies of all sizes. My company, UserLand Software, is a member. We agree on a common philosophy -- a level playing field, interoperation between software, and choice for users and developers. That's the foundation that the Web was built on, it's what kept the Web ticking through the dotcom lunacy.'

'Now several large companies, led by Microsoft, Philips, Apple and Hewlett-Packard, are trying to become the platform vendor that the Internet never had, and imho that's totally counter to the charter for the Internet, and therefore, the W3C.'

Allow me to add my "boo!" to the rising chorus.

Salon.com News | Democracy held hostage
Free Speech
'What we need more than anything right now is careful deliberation and spirited debate. We need, in short, for our democracy to come fully alive. Unfortunately, the calls for herd-like conformity are on the rise. In the last week, self-appointed sheep dogs from across the political spectrum have begun yapping at our heels, pushing us to all think alike and move in the same direction.'
