The Thin Red Quotomatic

"finding out the hard way"

How many divisions has the Pope? We now know the answer to that question. - Steven Hayward

A kinder, gentler Indymedia

In de kathedraal is het mogelijk om vanaf vandaag en dat tot en met de dag van de begrafenis van de paus het rouwregister te komen ondertekenen. Dit voor alle gelovigen en alle andere mensen die willen getuigen van hun spirituele eenheid met de overleden paus en met de Kerk. De rouwregisters zullen daarna aan de apostolische nuntius in België worden overgemaakt. - Christophe Legasse

"Witness the power of the fully functional blogosphere!"

San Francisco officials will face the same difficulties (assuming the ordinance passes) that the Canadian judge who issued the gag order encountered. How will San Francisco regulate a blog hosted in say, Canada posting information about a municipal candidate? Part of the problem is that the Internet was designed to provide multiple pathways to information. (It was originally designed as a nuclear-war resistant architecture) As the logical and physical infrastructure grows those pathways multiply. Any serious attempt to control information flows on the Internet will effectively require a redesign so that it can be throttled, the very thing it was intended to prevent. Although they are not strictly comparable, the Internet has become, along with that other military invention, GPS, too valuable to cripple. Entire businesses worth hundreds of billions are now critically dependent on existing Internet protocols and any really effective controls will come at a very high cost. - Wretchard

Maybe Bart should go easy on the laudanum.

Tegen die overdrijvingen zal de herinnering aan Johannes Paulus II niet bestand blijken. De schaduwzijden van zijn bewind zijn immers van dezelfde megadimensies als zijn verwezenlijkingen. - Bart Sturtewagen
