Boycott week

This week I am boycotting slashdot because the current owners of the website want to make it into something that is very different than the way slashdot used to be, and I liked it the old way. The owners of course may make any changes to the format they like, but that doesn't mean I will visit it any more. Please leave comments on websites you like to visit routinely to learn about the world (other than news sites).

I am also joining a one-day call to protest mass spying. If you don't see a pretty banner across this webpage (and I'm not sure I've gotten the code correct), please go to The day we fight back.

Finally, I'm sending a pretty picture I took while skiing at Bachelor's Gulch in Colorado last week.
