ahh, that word “Brain log”. I remember in my teens I just wanted a system on line that would give me easy access to publish thoughts I had throughout the day. Brainlog I called it… ahem… we call it a blog today. A year later sitting at a small independent internet publishing conference in SF I attended a small presentation by blogger, went home the next day to get an account only to find they had closed public registration. this was ages before blogger turned into google or the word blog was commonplace. Today, using flock to make a true dump of the brain, brings me full circle to that headline.

I tried to use Flock’s shelf feature throughout the day and now lets see if I can dump it in 2 minutes flat:

1) Warner follows Comedy Central’s Motherload in releasing massive amounts of content online:

Warner Brothers is preparing a major new Internet service that will let fans watch full episodes from more than 100 old television series. The service, called In2TV, will be free, supported by advertising, and will start early next year. More than 4,800 episodes will be made available online in the first year.

The move will give Warner a way to reap new advertising revenue from a huge trove of old programming that is not widely syndicated.” – Internet Service to Put Classic TV on Home Computer – New York Times

2) The Prussian statesman Otto von Bismarck once summarized the unseemly side of politics with a quip: “Laws are like sausages. It’s better not to see them being made.” – Linus’s World

3)
Why is it that you need the EFF or ACLU to make a difference in civil liberties?
