The headline of this article is Boy Scouts Are Poised to End Ban on Gay Leaders, but it turns out that the new policy is "Scout sponsoring organizations like the Mormons and the Catholics can still ban gay leaders if they want."
This reminds me of The Men's Prayer from The Red Green Show: "I'm a man, but I can change, If I have to, I guess."
I suppose a less decisive organization would've waited to actually lose a lawsuit to change the policy.

The Boy Scouts of America is poised to change its long-divisive stance, while leaving room for some scouting groups to restrict leadership jobs.

What I love about the phenomenon of Grandma signing her posts Grandmaster Flash is that if someone got busy while listening to The Message, she could easily be a grandma by now.  Take that, stereotypes!

If you want a concrete example of how the NSA (and certainly other governments) spy on your Internet traffic, read this article.

When thinking about network security, I think the default assumption should be that anything which leaves a building over which you have physical control should be considered a hostile network.  And be suspicious about the local network too.

Schneier also points out that if you want your communications to be skipped over, it's best to use popular systems and protocols to blend in.  Using really good encryption which is really rare may make spies curious about what you might be protecting, while traffic from products with decent encryption and a large number of users may not pique anyone's interest.

The NSA's XKEYSCORE program, first revealed by The Guardian, sweeps up countless people's Internet searches, emails, documents, usernames and passwords, and other private communications. XKEYSCORE is fed a constant flow of Internet traffic from fiber optic cables that make up the backbone of the ...

When the GOP sends its candidates, they're not sending the best... They're bringing gambling, they're bringing sleaze.  They're rapists and some, I assume, are good people.

Ivana Trump accused her husband of sexually violating her, and his lawyer has issued a series of insane threats to Daily Beast reporters, which they have published.

Munch's "The Scream" set to Pink Floyd's "The Great Gig in the Sky" with animation that feels a bit like Gollum from Jackson's Lord of the Rings.  As the kids say, this video is relevant to my interests.
The classic painting "The Scream" by Edvard Munch is brought to life in a fantastic animation directed by Sebastian Cosor of Safe Frame, perfectly set to the song "The Great Gig In The Sky" by Pink...

This would be an excellent bike for Burning Man. Ride up to someone on the open playa, take their measurements, and whip up a simple costume, or fix a tear in their current one.

Introduction
I exercise my left brain by writing code to make the Internet a better place.  I exercise my right brain by drumming, dancing, and taking photos.  I exercise other people's brains by wearing weird hats, being radically self-expressive, and blogging about complex issues.

I was born, grew up, and currently live in Boulder, Colorado.  But I consider myself a citizen of Earth and try to consider humanity my in-group.  It's not us versus them, it's us making sustainable decisions versus us making the world a big mess.
