alternate email

Looks like my lohnet.org mail server is down; don’t know when it will be back. Use my same username @gmail.com in the meantime. Update: of course they resolved it right after I finally got around to posting about it.

One hand clapping

If I asked you to “listen” silently to this page for 4’33″, would that be a copyright violation?

What if I attached a 4’33″ long mp3 of silence?

If I recorded it myself, would that be a forgery or a performance?

What if I used a kazoo instead of a piano?

Would 4’34″ of silence be a derivative work?

Would 15″ of silence, accompanied with this commentary, be an acceptable use excerpt?

Would the sound of one hand clapping be the appropriate sign of appreciation?

Time Flies

“Ethan here: Today marks the 44th anniversary of Candelstick Park tornado that struck Jackson. 57 people died and 504 people were injured.” –@16WAPTNews

I haven’t thought about that in years. My uncle was working there at the time; my aunt too, or maybe she was just visiting him. I vaguely remember them describing the experience. In any case, the “44th anniversary” part is what shocked me — I’ve been reminded that it happened nearly a half-century ago.

  Time flies like an arrow.
  Fruit flies like a banana.

I think I first saw that in a old Scientific American article about the difficulties in machine parsing of natural language. Lost in translation. A geek pun to me, since translation also refers to coordinate transformations: translation, rotation, scaling, skewing, … preserving topological equivalents across gross distortions, no tearing allowed. Ants. Moebius Strip II.

I sometimes envy those who have a sense of continuous, unbroken time. I imagine that for them events are like beads on a string, pages in a book, frames in a strip of film. Mention to them some event and they can provide context, cause and effect, sliding their finger along the curve and saying “see, this happened before, and this happened after”. The people who can always quickly answer those “where were you when such-and-such happened” questions that I hate. Steel Beach.

Like the “one, two, three, many” number concept attributed to some primitive tribes, time to me is only “today, yesterday, a while back, and a long time ago”. Time lies like pieces of a shattered mirror beneath my feet, glints and reflections, partial images fractured along random edges. Memory is a kaleidoscope filled with broken events, ever changing in random juxtaposition, tumbling in disconnected chaos. Mona Lisa Overdrive.

I C U

This is why I keep a PostIt over the lens of built-in cameras.

Cory Doctorow says:

According to the filings in Blake J Robbins v Lower Merion School District (PA) et al, the laptops issued to high-school students in the well-heeled Philly suburb have webcams that can be covertly activated by the schools’ administrators, who have used this facility to spy on students and even their families. The issue came to light when the Robbins’s child was disciplined for “improper behavior in his home” and the Vice Principal used a photo taken by the webcam as evidence. The suit is a class action, brought on behalf of all students issued with these machines.

Just WTF sort of delusional thinking gives a principal (or any official, for that matter) the idea that covertly monitoring a child at home is within the purview of his position?
