So I take it USGS's end is near in the hands of dumbth republicans...
Some of the most heavily fracked parts of the US have experienced an unprecedented wave of earthquakes in recent years even though they’ve long been considered geologically stable. But the oil and gas industry is quick to reject any suggestion that fracking is to blame.

The Content Industry Connect conference, which was held in Toronto yesterday, featured a panel of leading television executives from Bell, the CBC, Corus, Rogers, and Shaw Media. Several people were live-tweeting the event when a comment from Rogers Senior Vice President David Purdy caught my eye. According to Kelly Lynne Ashton, a media policy expert, Purdy called on the Canadian government to shut down the use of virtual private networks:

ah, i came across one of my favorite tracks from mid-eighties where I had a small electronic music program at radio york. I bought all my albums, usually from a couple of small record shops that brought in music from Europe and Japan...

Story
Tagline
programmer, photographer, occasional haiku poet. unix since 1982.
Introduction
I'm a passionate programmer and photographer, amateur philosopher, functionalist, hard-core atheist, science fiction fan, beta geek and occasional haiku poet. I study iaido [muso jikiden eishin ryu - sandan] with ohmi sensei [kyoshi 7-dan]. I have been an open systems advocate and contributor [eg. sdbm] since 1982.

I make notes here on photography, software, books, graphic design, some poetry, and other things i really like and dislike. i treat it like a shared notebook. it does not cover my history, many details of my family, other skills and interests. [i think of all so-social networking as a theatre of matryoshka dolls. it stops me from assuming too much. what you see is much less than what you may get.]

i have several albums of images here and more added when I have the time. i don't try to "freeze" moments with my camera; I let them flow, I let them move and capture me. to paraphrase thomas merton, photography enables me to find myself and lose myself at the same time. I work abstracts, shallow depth of field, motion. I'm a long time nikon user.

I hope you find something of lasting value in my stream. enjoy.
