☞ Fact-Based Living

  • Yet another illustration why the proposed three-strikes laws are unbalanced and unjust. The onus continues to be on the accused to prove innocence, usually at great cost and after summary judgment. This cannot be allowed to stand; we need to educate the general population about why it's their freedoms at risk and not those of anonymous abusers.
  • I've been highlighting this thread of thought (SJVN's post is just an example) to my counterpart at Oracle who tells me the information vacuum is not a guaranteed indicator of bad stuff. Moveover, some of these assertions aren't accurate. For example, Kenai is not being shut down - it is merely being reskinned and rebranded as Java.Net as an act of consolidation. So my advice continues to be to hold on and wait for news rather than assuming the worst.
  • Seems Amazon US has started providing a URL for the list of free tracks posted for the week. Very handy. I like all but one of these, well worth a visit.
