Sherman Austin, from his song "Raise the Fist" LOS ANGELES - On May Day, 2007, the Los Angeles police made front page news after clashing with protesters in a public park. Images of baton-wielding officers and cowering protesters, journalists among them, renewed an angry debate over police brutality in a city still scarred by the memory of the Rodney King beating.

Suppressing critics of Israel
2007-05-11 23:31:00
Norman Finkelstein From wakeupfromyourslumber.com Linked by whatreallyhappened.com The campaign against Norman Finkelstein Bitta Mostofi, The Electronic Intifada, 10 May 2007 In recent weeks a considerable amount has been written and said about Norman Finkelstein's bid for tenure at DePaul University. As most academics are aware, it is unique for a tenure decision, something that is an inherently internal process, to be subject to external discussion. Unfortunately, Finkelstein's case is important because of the way in which is not unique. Forces outside DePaul have attempted to interfere with the University's in an effort to sway its decision towards denial of Finkelstein's tenure. This campaign is part of a pattern of attacks aimed at silencing prominent critics of the Isra el i government. The goal is to erode the willingness of academics, journalists, politicians and individuals to speak out against Israel's human rights record for fear of losing their jobs. Bookmark/Search t...

Steve Jobs speaks out on DRM
2007-02-07 12:20:02
Steve Jobs & iPod Source: Apple.com Thanks to Marco for sharing the link. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs writes about the use of Digital Rights Management (DRM) in its iTunes music store. Jobs speaks of the secrets employed to control the usage of the files by the the end-user. A must-read article for anyone interested in DRM, copyprotection and digital freedoms. "Why would the big four music companies agree to let Apple and others distribute their music without using DRM systems to protect it? The simplest answer is because DRMs haven?t worked, and may never work, to halt music piracy. Though the big four music companies require that all their music sold online be protected with DRMs, these same music companies continue to sell billions of CDs a year which contain completely unprotected music. That?s right! No DRM system was ever developed for the CD, so all the music distributed on CDs can be easily uploaded to the Internet, then (illegally) downloaded and played on any compute...

Second Life
2007-02-07 12:20:02
Winston Smith in Second Life Now that Second Life has gone open-source, I've decided to try it out. It worked very well on my ubuntu edgy box, although it didn't work on my room-mates' laptops. After learning the basic controls and traveling around SL all night yesterday, today I decided to have a little fun with my avatar. I wanted to see if I could reproduce the Winston Smith character design from the comic. At first I started with a leather jacket model over which I layered a denim texture, all available on the second life website. But after taking a closer look at a leather jacket model, it hit me to take a picture of the suit and adjust it over a template, also available on their site. The Gimp worked very well with the .psd templates and had no difficulty in producing a .tga file (required by SL) despite it not being listed amongst the other programs on SL's website. It's also free, contrary to the programs currently listed. Bookmark/Search this post with: delicious | dig...

Including 3d objects into a 2d comic using free software
2007-02-07 12:20:02
Screenshot of the telescreen model in Blender I have done this operation in the past (chapters 1 & 2) using the proprietary programs Rhino, Illustrator and Photoshop. The idea is to replicate that process with free software. And that means learning the tools of the trade. What I did before was load a wire-frame model of the telescreen in Rhino, play with the positioning and perspective of the model until it fit just right into the 2d environment I drew beforehand. The model was exported as a vectorial (flat) drawing and included into a scan of the hand-drawn page using a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop. From there a blue-line version with the telescreens is printed out onto a large Bristol board and inked by hand. Now that I've gotten rid of Windows once and for all, I'll simply have to figure out a way to reproduce this same operation using exclusively free software.

Escalation of US Iran military planning part of six-year Administration pus
2007-01-31 00:19:01
Source: RawStory.com Larisa Alexandrovna and Muriel Kane Published: Tuesday January 23, 2007 (Click here to read the full timeline of the decades-long buildup to Iran ) The escalation of US military planning on Iran is only the latest chess move in a six-year push within the Bush Administration to attack Iran, a RAW STORY investigation has found. While Iran was named a part of President George W. Bush?s ?axis of evil? in 2002, efforts to ignite a confrontation with Iran date back long before the post-9/11 war on terror. Presently, the Administration is trumpeting claims that Iran is closer to a nuclear weapon than the CIA?s own analysis shows and positing Iranian influence in Iraq?s insurgency, but efforts to destabilize Iran have been conducted covertly for years, often using members of Congress or non-government actors in a way reminiscent of the 1980s Iran-Contra scandal.

The last step to freedom
2007-01-31 00:19:01
Just before the holidays I got rid of windows for the first time. I had already gotten rid of tv years ago but this turned out to be a little more touchy. In fact, it's still not over yet. The one thing holding me back is this file from a 3d program called Rhino. I need to have it converted into an .obj which I'm told can be opened in Rhino. When this file is converted the whole project will run exclusively on free software. From the age of Big Brother, 76 Bookmark/Search this post with: delicious | digg | reddit | technorati -->

Two election workers in the state's most populous county were convicted Wednesday of illegally rigging the 2004 presidential election recount so they could avoid a more thorough review of the votes. A third employee who had been charged was acquitted on all counts. Jacqueline Maiden, the elections' coordinator who was the board's third-highest ranking employee when she was indicted last March, and ballot manager Kathleen Dreamer each were convicted of a felony count of negligent misconduct of an elections employee.

Independant Journalist involved in Army's Political Speech Lawsuit
2007-01-25 00:12:01
The Center for Media and Democracy announces the launch of Defend The Press, a new coalition of journalists, public interest groups, academics and citizen activists. Defend The Press is asking the US Army to drop its subpoena of Sarah Olson, an independent print and radio journalist based in Oakland, California, in the court martial of Iraq war resister Lieutenant Ehren Watada. Olson interviewed Watada in May 2006, and in June he announced he would not go to war in Iraq, challenging its legality. Watada's Army court martial begins February 5, 2007, at Fort Lewis, Washington. Bookmark/Search this post with: delicious | digg | reddit | technorati --> read more

The importance of archiving
2007-01-24 06:10:01
Here's a blog of a painter in Prague, Czech Republic named Jeremiah Palecek who puts up 1 painting a day. That's worth a look in and of itself, but I particularly enjoyed his posting on the importance of archiving. Here's an excerpt from his posting on his blog: "This is the way the Gmail login looks today. But who remembers the original webcrawler icon? For me, while this electronic image is merely a logo, the time period in which I used Webcrawler reminds of a certain period of my life as well as a very specific period of time in which I used it. By creating these paintings of digital imagery, Im not only archiving bits of nostalgia. I'm also organizing different periods of my life. Some days when I'm visiting a page I ve been going to for years and there's been a major site overhaul I almost feel betrayed. Where is my login button? Why did they change the banner? Something that has become automatic is slowed down a bit, and suddenly that gmail page I've been using for year...

Blogging the WIPO Broadcasting Treaty: Signal-Based Protection or Rights by
2007-01-22 06:07:01
Source: EFF.org Date: Fri Jan 19 13:02:31 UTC 2007 Author: dereks@eff.org Subject: WIPO The 183 member states of the UN's World Intellectual Property Organization are gathered in Geneva this week to discuss the controversial draft WIPO Broadcast ing Treaty[1]. EFF's main concern with the current treaty draft[2] - shared by the other 40 public interest groups, companies and industry groups that have submitted a joint statement[3] to WIPO this week - is that it is not limited to signal theft. Instead, it creates a set of broad and unwieldy intellectual property rights in the recording and use of fixed transmissions, which are likely to restrict the public's access to information in the public domain, preclude uses of works permitted under national copyright law, curtail consumers' use of lawfully-received programming in their home, and stifle technological innovation. Over the last year there has been widespread support for moving to an alternative signal-focused treaty. Last Oct...
