February was a busy month. My mind was split between new projects, dc, refueling a big project, and working on a big one.
- Buke and Gase - General Dome - ‘Hard Times’ was the song of the month.
- Atoms for Peace - AMOK - Thom Yorke hijinks and Flea minus RHCP. Quality album.
- Yo La Tengo - Fade - plus seeing them in-concert at the 9:30 Club
- Thao & The Get Down Stay Down - We the Common and Emancipator’s Dusk to Dawn - both by fellow William & Mary grads.
Plus reviewing four tracks to follow-up Teen Mom’s album, Mean Tom
got a twine and a leap and I need to learn more
Away From Keyboard is fantastic. I expected it to be a bit over the top or poorly produced, but it’s really a quality piece of film and journalism.
Quite a bit. I posted about the DC Code’s compilation, process, copyright status, propriety, and access, so there’s been a lot to learn.
A few highlights:
- Tear Down this (Pay)Wall
- Clickwrap and Browse wrap - two of the important elements of the problems with the DC Code
- No Law - a great text about copyright law
- ProCD vs. Zeidenberg - a court case establishing the validity of click-wrap and its ability to override copyright
- Summaries of Fair Use Cases - since fair use is per-case, this gives good examples of how those cases have gone.
- A Short Lesson in Perspective - depressing and valid
- Google Invades
- Peter Thiel’s Infantile Culture
- Fix the Law to Fix America
- Presented on d3.js at the DC jQuery Meetup. First presentation using tributary.io and mistakes.
- Copyedited and illustrated a blog post series by John Firebaugh: 1, 2, 3.
