De omnibus dubitandum

Stephen Colbert did a fantastic routine at the recent White House press corps dinner, which was largely ignored by the big media. It even seems like active attempts are being undertaken at suppressing the videos -> YouTube had them but they’ve been removed for ‘copyright infringement’. Right.
A humorous attack on the President and the press, and it provokes exactly the type of reaction the attack was aimed at. How’s that for irony.
P.S. Turns out ol’ Dubya has a sense of humor of his own. Who knew?

Well, holy shit.
Hoax or not, I’d vote for him. Can you just imagine the speeches he’d give? I’d pay to see those.

More evidence of potential election fraud in the US last year. The Diebold machines used in several states have proven to be easily hackable without a trace.
What worries me the most is not the lack of security of these machines (every geek knows everything is hackable), but the widespread lack of US media coverage of this gaping hole in their election system during the 2004 campaign. Food for conspiracy theorists, that’s for sure.

I so want one of these. It’s the ultimate toy for a web-addicted geek like me. If I have some money left after my London trip, I’m seriously considering getting one.

Today is Gray Tuesday, a protestor event that basically amounts to a big middle finger raised at the anally retentive record industry. I signed up too, and if you don’t want to refresh the AmericanEdit.org page a few times to find my entry, you can find the goodies here. I won’t keep it up there forever though, bandwidth being costly and all, so grab it while you can.

The Guardian came up with a top 20 of geek novels. I’ve actually read nine of those. I’m a bit surprised that SF is so prominent and Fantasy is barely at all in the list, but I suppose fantasy geeks and tech geeks are somewhat different breeds.
