+ - Music Video With Guido Van Rossum And Others->

Chillers writes: Gender bending band Mechanical Black have released a music video that has quantum math, a bunch of 8 bit machines, 6502 assembly language, cameos from many industry biggies like James Gosling, Guido Van Rossum and Eric Allman, and it even stars an Altair 8800! There's more to it than that but I won't ruin the surprise.

+ - Rock meets geek->

Dedokta writes: Cross dressing heavy metal band Mechanical Black have released a cover of the 80's pop hit Electric Dreams featuring elements of extreme geekiness that should excite a few Slashdot readers.

Not only is the video clip peppered with an impressive collection of retro computers and gaming consoles, but also feature cameos in the form of video chat windows from:

David Warhol, Earl Vickers, Elonka Dunin, Eric Allman, G Mark Hardy, George Sanger (and Cindy Moorhouse), Guido Van Rossum, James Gosling, Jeff Minter, Jennifer Reitz, John Draper, Marcus Ranum, Marshall Kirk McKusick, Nathaniel Borenstein, Richard Bartle, Bruce Schneier, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jackson, Ian Livingstone and John Resig

+ - Canada CRTC Rules Against Usage Based Billing->

iONiUM writes: "In a somewhat surprising end to the ongoing fight between large ISPs (a duopoly in Canada), and independent ISPs, the CRTC has ruled in favour of the small ISPs. This means that independent ISPs can continue to have unlimited plans offered to customers. Score one for the citizens."
