5 minute update

OK, I'll take 5 minutes to update during a work break.

In the parking garage, I saw this license plate (thanks MisterP to for taking the picture):

This guy is an Everquest player and proud of it. While I am suprised at the blatant geekage, I do appauld his bravery to cross his virtual and real lives.

Elfmage, whereever you are, Bravo.

Next, I saw on Slashdot today that that are slamming Phil Lelyveld. I work with Phil and he's a good guy. He's not a lawyer like they accused him of being. I don't see eye to eye with him (and our company) on how to handle the issues surrounding digital content and consumer rights, but he does believe what he said. There's no reason for the personal attacks and slams directed at the man. Attack the message if you disagree, but don't attack the man. I gave Phil a call, but he's out of the office today. I'd hate to see what his email inbox looks like.

I'm running a text ad at BBspot. Brian, who runs BBspot, has committed himself fully to running the site and quit his day job. I believe in supporting sites I visit & enjoy and so I bought a text ad. In a couple days, I'll see how many clickthroughs I get.

There is a convoluted story about the power of blogs that involves, MisterP, Trikster, and HyperactiveMan, but I don't have time to explain it now.
