Happy $th of July! Jul. 4th, 2006 @ 04:54 pm
Yes... I meant it that way. Yea for Plastic Patriotism! There are so many things that you could have spent your hard earned money on to support our troops then purchasing that plastic banner screaming the day and the blinky lights shaped like knock-off American Flags... yet, you don't even have a real flag flying. At least be American and congregate to watch what we all like about this holiday... things blowing up... aka...Fireworks shows!!!... one show that most veterans will shell shock HIGHLY AVOID...

But no... you won't congregate with the others of your city... you don't want to be down with the people... you don't want to get hot and sweaty and stink... so you will watch your fireworks on your flat screen t.v. and listen to what you censored t.v. has to tell you.

So I tell you... get out eat a watermelon bought out of the back of a pick up... spit seeds at your neighbor... don't eat the potato salad it's hot today... make some noise, hoot en holler, I would say run through the sprinklers but it is raining so save the water, kiss your significant other because they are there, talk to your neighbors because they are the ones that are going to be there when the t.v. goes out, play!, watch the sunset, watch Houston light up since you can't see the stars, and of course have a good time... cause if it wasn't for those good poor boys and girls looking for a way to better their education-and the few that REALLY want to be there... I wouldn't be able to write this rant... and you wouldn't be able to read it. Be thankful for what you can do and be knowlegable of the things that you REALLY can do!

Have a Happy Independence Day!

Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace

"A DECADE AGO, IN THE SPRING OF 1989, COMMUNISM IN EUROPE DIED-COLLAPSED, AS a tent would fall if its main post were removed."

"Code" starts off with a detail of the author's observation of the ending of the Communist regime in Russia. It did not, contrary to popular hope, automatically set in a utopian ideal of self-regulated government and prosperity from market changes. Quite the opposite happened, the new freedoms and lack of government laid the path for corruption and underworld-rule.

This first example is meant to set a parallel to the expanding and evolving world of cyberspace, and to make possible the mental connections needed to comprehend how cyberspace is, and is not, like the real world. He outlines how "code" in the real world (physical artifices like fences or buildings, intangible variables like market fluctuations, laws, and supply and demand) and code in cyberspace act as controls to the environment, and gives an idea of exactly how free or restricted we are, or we allow ourselves to be, through the code we construct around us. further examples set in both real space and cyberspace explain this concept more fully, and tell how our world is merely of our own construction, built around societal and person goals.

Definitely an interesting read, a bit long at first glance, but its well worth the length. A good philosophical and analytic work on how parameters change the way we control our world. Read it.
