I'm sorry but the internet is a vital resource. The left would have zero power without it. Worldwide activism can only work when we connect. The cheapest, best way to connect is with the net. You also get media and reporting you would never get in the awful mainstream media, which has become a propaganda wing of the Pentagon.

All my Chomsky videos, radio interviews, weird ideas, would not exist without the net. Ironically, the same net would not exist without military funding--note Arpanet.

Harlan may not need access to this stuff, but many do. He will disagree but I think it comes down to him being a bit old fashioned.

possible pirates

would someone with more patience than me like to look at these two sites:

4shared.com
scribd.com

Poppy Z. Brite mentioned them on her (very cool) blog: http://docbrite.livejournal.com/. She notified them that they'd posted copyrighted material of hers without permission.

it looks like "Susan" is posted on scribd.com, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at, or if it's legal or not. So......

Would some industrious blue monkey please take a look-see?

peace,
Rick

No idea about 4shared.com, but scribd.com is apparently copacetic. Here's Harlan himself on the subject, from a Pavilion post dated February 10, 2009:

Harlan wrote:Scribd.com is A-OK with me. Within days of their posting my work (last year), I and my attorneys had contacted them, and in about two days thereafter the CEO and his partner, and their excellent attorney, were sitting around the Ellison Wonderland dining room table. A deal was struck, and they were absolutely gracious, aboveboard and understanding of my concern. We reached a very satisfactory rapprochement, and Scribd.com acquired the right to post "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream" legitimately and with my complete pleasure.

You know folks it's absolutely none of my business but I'd be fascinated to know what "a very satisfactory rapprochement" consisted of. Any of you scriveners out there care to guess?

Dat some good chit, mon.
War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. - Karl Kraus

Tony blankley said that Obama's policies were "radical." That just tells you how nutty the right has gone. They went from sincere to ulta-fascist. Fearful times ahead.

Dear Frank,
What piece of artwork is your avatar? :D I can see up your nose and it looks like your tonsils need to be removed. :lol: Not that there's anything wrong with that. I preferred the other one. :wink:

Well, it looks as though airline security is going to become even more cumbersome and tedious.

An ethics question posed by the UU group I attended yesterday with a friend.

Was it unethical for the father of the terrorist who set off the bomb on the Amsterdam flight to turn him in to the FBI?

If not, was it unethical for the FBI not to put him on the "no fly" list?

We all went to Saul's in Berkeley after the meeting and I had a kosher hot dog. Yum! :wink:
