Muon1's Facebook page

I've only mentioned Muon1 in passing before, when it reached it's 20 Quadrillion particle-timestep milestone last year. however, I'm a strong supporter of Muon1, as I believe it's a massive step forward in distributing computing. Now you too can show your support by joining its facebook page.

USTR 301 deadline looming

Some of you may have forgotten, but the deadline for the upcoming US Trade Representative Special 301 report is coming soon. The report, required under the 1974 Trade Act, reports on trade barriers to US business due to Copyright, Patent, and Trademark (C/P/T). In addition, a submission on ACTA will also close at the same time.

America, Fighting Terrorism with Terrorism

Tomorrow, there will be a domestic terrorist attack on Capitol Hill. It won't be the first, and it won't be the last either, as legislation that strips away rights from both citizens, and non-citizens is pushed through the US Congress. Tommorow, it'lll be reauthorizing aspects of the USA PATRIOT Act that are due to expire, and it does this in the name of "fighting terrorism". The sad irony, is that the entire Patriot Act itself is quite literally a domestic terrorist act.
