Number nine... number nine... number nine...
Seems I ran into a surprisingly small number of people for a surprisingly short period of time at Dragon Con. So if you are reading this, there is a good chance that a "sorry I missed you" is in order. Current Mood: tired

|WIth Helpers Like these...
Some information for others who use Comcast for their ISP. They have recently implemented something that the rest of the world knows as DNS Hijacking that they have decided to call their Domain Helper Service
. Visit this article for a full explanation and information on how to opt out of this "help". Current Mood: rolling my eyes

Yo mama got bailout money from the government.
They said she's too big to fail.
Yes, I'm feeling random and silly. How the heck are you? Current Mood: silly

|Social Media and emergency response
Heard an interesting article
this morning on the CDC's use of twitter to spread information on the swine flu. Mind you, XKCD has a slightly different take
on twitter's role. :)
As people watch less live tv and listen to less radio, social media probably will play a more important role in emergency response. Its going to be interesting watching this progress. Current Mood: geeky

|Newton County Born and Raised?
Was driving behind a vehicle today with a license plate that said "FRESH".
Alas, there were no dice in the mirror.
Happy New Year everyone. May 2009 treat you well.

Just a quick reminder that if you live in Georgia, there is a runoff election for the senate seat today.

|Yes We Did
As I reflect on the enormity of this election, I can't help but wonder if this was how it felt to elect JFK and Reagan. I was young and in a divided household during the Reagan election, and JFK was before my time, but these are the elections that come to mind right now.
Of course the other thing that comes to mind is 1994. And here I think of this both in terms of party triumph and object lesson. Hopefully we will learn from those lessons and try to find common ground with our political rivals instead of deepening the divisions. Current Mood: contemplative
A couple of months ago many of us stood in a line that wrapped around 3 sides of the Hyatt regency. Some of us groused a little, but we still made it through the line and got our tickets. That was just for Dragon Con. If you can wait in a line for con, surely you can wait in a line for democracy. Go forth and vote. (unless of course you already have. :) ) Current Mood: civic-minded

When you represent all of us, how you conduct yourself matters.
One more reason I'll be voting for "that one"
