Catching up

What was happening while I was sidetracked by Christmas? Well, here are a few things I noticed and stockpiled:

If you're interested in a timeline of the Trent Lott story as it appeared in the media, the Online Journalism Review has it.

BlogCon participant Jenny got a mention in the WashPost "Blogging as Tech Story of the Year" article of a week ago.

What happens if the Bush plan to outsource government printing jobs goes through? Well, for one thing, archiving government documents if there's no centralized control of their publication becomes problematic.

20 municipalities have now passed resolutions instructing employees not to collaborate with federal officials, thus defying the Patriot Act. They aren't all Berkeley, either.

Finally, be careful out there: what you say in your pages may have unforeseen consequences.

The BEST Lott thing ever was this comic strip (I can't remember the name of it, it's the one with the two little militant black kids that they won't put on the comics page b/c it's inflammatory!), and they look at each other and say, "Wanna bet ain't NOBODY coming to Strom's birthday party next year?"

I think that's Boondocks, Skatemom, and its author is subversive as hell. We only get him on Sundays, drat it.
