Awesome.
Today in the U.K. a fierce St. George faces off against a fearsome dragon in a doodle inspired by illuminated manuscript.

Wow, another great photo!
One of my favorite trees on the mountain (Saddleback Mtn.), has been suffering a bit of late due to the drought conditions in the Sierras. Still glad that it's producing at least a few cones most years. You can see on the trunk a straddling wire that held an insulator where a old telephone wire was attached. At the time (30's,40's,50's), that was the only communication to the fire lookout on top....pre-radio years. I considered trying to remove it, but I suspect that would do more harm than good. I'm hoping the bark will completely encase the wire and allow the necessary growth around it, allowing it live long past my time. The oldest dead Jeffrey Pine found to date had 813 rings.

Stunning photo!
#treetuesday I'd like to thank Olivier Du Tré for inspiring me to make the kinds of images that speak to me. I'm still finding my "voice" but I find that the high-contrast B&W images are what speak to me the most.

My first piece in Wired! Jim Dunstan and I explain why the Outer Space Treaty precludes land grants (like those given to the railroads) but not rights in satellites, moon bases, and extracted resources, or mining claims and salvage rights.

Great public awareness campaign about privacy & security online

Great write-up of this issue. My favorite part: "faith in the 'free market' is running low in parts of the tech industry. That's a really, really sad thing given that the technology industry has thrived in large part because of its ability to move faster than politicians who believe the internet is a series of tubes."

Check out our joint brief with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Center for Democracy & Technology, Public Knowledge & Cato. The Supreme Court has said: “Technology expands the capacity to choose; and it denies the potential of this revolution if we assume the Government is best positioned to make these choices for us.” Since 1978, we've been empowered to choose media appropriate for values and our children. So we're asking them to overrule their 1978 "Pacifica" decision to end FCC indecency censorship of broadcast television once and for all!
