Not sure how many members of this community are hip to Chiptunes=Win, but they're throwing a big ol' Internets Party tonight for the release of their April Fools EP.  Come on over and join in!

More news from Washington: The U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to hold hearing on search engine and DNS blocking

RELEASE: "House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) today announced that the Full Committee will hold a hearing on January 18 to examine the potential impact of Domain Name Service (DNS) and search engine blocking on American cyber-security, jobs and the Internet community. In light of policy proposals affecting the way taxpayers access the Internet, the hearing will also explore federal government strategies to protect American intellectual property without adversely affecting economic growth. The Committee will hear testimony from top cyber-security experts and technology job creators."

“An open Internet is crucial to American job creation, government operations, and the daily routines of Americans from all walks of life,” said Issa. “The public deserves a full discussion about the consequences of changing the way Americans access information and communicate on the Internet today.”

On January 18h, witnesses from the Internet industry will be better-represented:

Witnesses
+Stewart Baker Partner, Steptoe & Johnson LLP
Brad Burnham: Partner, Union Square Ventures
Daniel Kaminsky: Security Researcher and Fortune 500 Advisor
Mr. Michael Macleod-Ball: Chief of Staff/First Amendment Counsel, American Civil Liberties Union
+Lanham Napier Chief Executive Officer, Rackspace Hosting
Dr. Leonard Napolitano: Director, Center for Computer Sciences & Information Technology Sandia National Laboratories
+Alexis Ohanian Co-Founder, Reddit.com, and Web Entrepreneur

While the release does not reference it, this hearing is effectively the House "bringing in the nerds" that were not present during the hearings on the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) last year. The testimony received will inform subsequent debate in official Washington on that bill, along with the PROTECT IP Act in the Senate.

Here's my feature on the bills from earlier in the winter, if you need to catch up on the issue:
http://radar.oreilly.com/2011/11/sopa-protectip.html

...along with my update from right before the New Year on "what you need to know" and how to follow the news: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alexander-howard/sopa-information-2012_b_1166214.html

Taken in concert with today's news that Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) opposes SOPA, this is significant. When Rep. Ryan (R-WI) makes public policy announcement, they offer a decent indicator of where the GOP leadership stands. A conflict between two chairmen in the House (Rep Issa (R-CA) and Rep. Smith (R-TX) may not be a desirable dynamic for the leadership, particularly given the context of an election year. They key angle to consider is how a bill actually gets to the floor. If House leadership doesn't take it up, after all, SOPA won't be voted upon.

Placing null-characters before and after every character in every string in your data file exports? Forgot to document that? Stay classy over-priced proprietary science software.

Yeah, for 900 dollars a license, its bad enough that E-Prime's scripting language, E-Basic, is barely documented, but exporting its experimental data files for MATLAB analysis shouldn't leave me jumping through such hoops.

Kinda glad that normally, I just write my own file output code in E-Basic to begin with. (This is a case of a student's thesis adviser wanting her to analyze some data we never originally intended to analyze)

Back from Mt. St. Helens. Now that I've had rest and brain isn't trying to stab its way out through my skull, I am ready to process the copious amounts of visual and positional data collected whilst up there.

I can only aspire to be remotely as courageous and defiant as this guy.

I had to double check this before I believed it, but seems to be factual.

Mt. Scott et. al. were the gracious hosts of the Forlorn Hope's latest hiking adventure. Good times, good pictures, and thanks to KJ's Cafe in Chemult, good pies.

Plans made. Coordinates set. I eagerly await this weekend's adventure. I will venture into Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument to engage in my first spelunking adventure into the Ape Caves. While I'm there, I intend to get a good eye lock on the volcanic delight herself.
