Journal Journal: Michael Sims - "The Censorware Project Is Now Closed"

Never before revealed. I've now added the full text of Michael Sims' original pronouncement that he had killed censorware.org, to the chronicles revolving around What Happened To The Censorware Project (censorware.org)

It's at

http://sethf.com/freespeech/censorware/project/isclosed.php

The Censorware Project is now closed. ... Jim, you and Seth can go fuck yourselves. ... if a serf were to be accused of a such a crime, he would go on a rampage, settling old debts with violence while the opportunity existed.

At some primal level, I don't understand journalism. I'll undoubtably be accounted worse for talking about this today, than Michael Sims will be accounted for continuing doing this today. That is, it'll be more proof of my bad character to continue to protest, than it will be proof of his bad character to continue obsessively hijacking the domain name and misleading people who mistakenly try to find material there. It's great stuff, that journalism.

Journal Journal: Blog, blog, blog

I understand blogging. But I'm not sure it's for me. Much of my life which is deathly dull, while other aspects aren't something to be shared in public. On the other hand, there's many aspects of free-speech politics, anticensorware issues, fear and loathing of lawsuits, aggravation, which might make sense. Maybe updates to my website work. Just ruminating, in a somewhat recursive manner.

Journal Journal: Slashdot 'n me

Slashdot's always been a kind of symbol for me. I'm a dedicated Linuxian, only using Windows "under duress". I've seen much of Slashdot's growth and popularization. I think about it at times - what it means, how it functions, does the system really work, if not, why not. If my life had taken just a slightly different turn, I might in fact have been an "editor" when the YRO section started.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
