2006241: links for 29 August 2006

Taking a page from Sterling, among others, I’m putting together a list of worthy links for you:

  • The War on Terror as viewed from the Bourne Shell: hilarious. My favorite part is
    $ ls bin $ cd bin $ ls laden
  • Eulogy on Disc: an insightful analysis of the direction of storage technology (hint: kiss your CDs goodbye).
  • Some of Your Friends are Already This Fucked: a hypothetical example explaining exactly how the RIAA and its member labels are using copyright law to “protect the artists”.

That’s enough for now. That last one just depressed me.

  1. Thanks for the links (in both senses of the term).

    That War on Terror thing had me in stitches. I liked the attempts to link Iraq and Al Qaeda, along with the wall messages.

  2. You can’t go wrong with taking a cue from Chip.

  3. Thanks very much, Randy, for that uncalled-for compliment. I actually learned the practice from you.

  4. This is, unfortunately, a cue I’ll probably be handing back. I don’t have the diligence necessary to add links at del.icio.us for automatic inclusion in “links for the day” posts, let alone to construct these things by hand, on a regular basis. It is indeed a good idea, though.
