Geez, this has all been about the strike recently. Guess what’s been on my mind.

There’s a guy, Dave Pell, who sends out his take on the news each day with links to articles from various sources. His site’s called NextDraft. He’s been focusing a lot on the terrorism/war thing recently, so if that’s what you’re into, subscribe.

Feeling somewhat apathetic today. That’s a problem.

There’s a thing going on with the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) right now, under most people’s radar—they want to recommend a new patent policy that will essentially give a green light to companies developing web technologies and patenting them to charge royalties. We probably don’t want the web’s only effective standards body recommending that. [See Zeldman’s far more thoughtful and knowledgeable summary.] You should probably read it and write to them. [I did.] The deadline is tomorrow.
