Trying to explain the business benefits of tracking protection while talking about "privacy"...is it like trying to explain the business benefits of open source while talking about "freedom"?

Maybe tracking protection advocates need to think about branding, the way +Eric Raymond and crew did.  I'm starting to find that it's easier to talk about tracking protection without a big heavy loaded word in the way.

(This is just for messaging work, of course -- privacy and freedom are still important concepts even if they don't work well in an elevator pitch.)
Don Marti. Sat 29 Nov 2014 09:59:05 PM PST. Unpacking privacy. Maybe the word "privacy" has something in common with the "freedom" in "free software". Privacy is a big heavy word, with too many meanings to be be a good part of a business message. Some free software people handled their version ...

Expensive is based on how much the site's content costs to produce. Do you run original reviews, or user-uploaded cat pictures?

Temporarily we cannot accept orders for fitlet and MintBox Mini. The first production batch is sold out. This also means we will not be able to ship inventory to Amazon during April.

We are working on a large production batch that is expected to ensure continuous availability. Once we have visibility of component availability for that production batch we will resume orders and will announce that.

Significant portion of the first batch was ordered by Compulab resellers. Some resellers may be accepting orders in the coming weeks.
For a list of Compulab resellers see http://www.fit-pc.com/web/purchasing/resellers/

You may email sales@fit-pc.com and request to be notified once ordering is resumed.

Thank you for your patience,
Compulab fit-PC team

 LOL, well, there's one idea for a startup.  Maybe Larry Augustin will fund it.  ;-)

One reason I admire Richard Stallman is this quote, at the end of this excellent article:

"Nothing good can come of giving up. That just means you lose completely, right away."
Richard Stallman, who published his manifesto in March of 1985, has been known to say that, “with software, either the users control the program, or the program controls the users.” Credit Photograph by Denis Allard / REA / Redux

That's awful nice of Oakland. But, seriously, San Francisco, as far as that "people doing number two on the sidewalk" problem of yours? You're going to have to figure that one out on your own.

Hard to argue with that.
Two years ago, comic book writer Brian Vaughan and comic book artist Marcos Martin teamed up for a 10-volume series called <a href="http://panelsyndicate.com"><em>The Private Eye</em></a>, about a future in which society has abandoned the Internet due to "the Cloud" bursting.

"This project was successfully funded on October 17, 2012."

(I think they've been through 3 designs and 2 manufacturers.)
Overview We are very excited to announce we are ready to ship Jorno to our backers! We’ve been working relentlessly on improving and testing Jorno’s design—3 extended visits to Shenzhen, multiple revised prototypes, and thousands of hours of quality assurance testing—all leading up to a product that we can be very proud of.The first production run is now complete, with product delivered to our California warehouse last week. There are details ...

It kinda looks like the old folding keyboard I bought for my Palm Pilot 10 years ago.

Maybe #alameda is working on technology for solving San Francisco's you-know-what on the sidewalk problem after all.

It could be interpreted that way, yes, but keep an eye out for work pictures that involve humming birds and flowers from now on.
