Keep Walking

Busy weekend coming up!

This weekend, although based in the Boston area, involves a bit ot travel and looks to be a busy and exciting weekend!

Tonight, I'm going to the Boston Bears' Happy Hour at The Alley (from 17:30 to 19:30) -- then it's off to where-ever...

Tomorrow morning, Dave and I take the motorcycle to Deep River, CT for Deep River Ancient Muster (a Fife & Drum parade and muster) -- I hope to see Ken Barlow (a former workmate) there!

On Sunday, Dave and I will be going on the Xtreme Riders Fun Run (a motorcycle trip!) Below is a photo of the Xtreme Riders Club:

It should be a good weekend!

Oh, yeah -- on my way up to Dave's last night, I passed by the cutest red-hairred bear with Government plates on his car on the I-93. I secretly snapped his photo from inside my car as I passed him. His photo is on the left.

Hummm, could I get in trouble for posting his photo without his knowledge?

Dear SavetheInternet.com blogger,

Net neutrality supporters are gearing up against a Senate vote on Sen. Ted "The Internet is a Series of Tubes" Stevens' telecommunications bill (S 2686). This bad bill fails to protect Net Neutrality. To preserve Internet freedom, we need to be sure that this bill gets overhauled or stopped in its tracks.

Today, we launched a Senate map that makes it ridiculously easy to a) figure out where your Senators stand, and b) urge them to take a public stance in support of Internet freedom. The goal is to get as many senators on the record as possible before any vote on the Senate floor. You (and your readers) can help the cause by checking out the map and flooding the Senate with calls.

July is a pivotal month. The Senate leadership won't schedule a vote on Stevens' bad bill unless 60 senators say they'll vote for it. Now's the time to call senators and tell them to support Net Neutrality instead -- and to oppose last-ditch industry efforts to push through a bill that more and more Americans are turning against.

We're not the only ones who've been busy; there's lots of creative work being produced in support of Net Neutrality. Check out this techno remix of Sen. Stevens' recent speech, a slew of new clips on the SavetheInternet.com videos page and other artistic output at the SavetheInternet.com blog.

We need more creativity like this to call attention to what the telcos are trying to get away with -- but eventually it all boils down to what the Senate does. So don't forget to check out the map, call your Senators, and encourage your friends/readers to do the same.

With your help, we can match the millions of dollars spent by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth with millions of citizens speaking up for Internet freedom.

The huge meme going around lately...

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now.  (I miss a lot of people... Some are dead and gone, others are just far away...) I don't watch much TV these days.  (Except Family Guy, Southpark, and the Adult Swim Sunday night line-up -- everthing else I watch on the 'net...) × I own lots of books.
I wear glasses or contact lenses.  (... sometimes) × I love to play video games(Boring! Boring!! Boring!!! Unless you're talking about the SIMS or other simulation game!) I've tried marijuana.  (... and it gives me the munchies! After eating, I fall fast asleep for 10-12 hours!)
I've watched porn movies.  (... phleaze! I've MADE a few!) I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.  (How many times do you need to tell someone that I'm NOT looking for a lover???) I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes.  (Sometimes?) I have changed a lot mentally over the last year.  (Does regression count?) × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.  (I prefer to defend myself with my wit! (Oh oh!))
