smarter than the harvester.... The Hivelogic Encoder.  "While no solution can create an address impervious to harvesting, this web-based tool will encode your email address using Numerical Equivalents and wrap the result in JavaScript. The final product will be rendered correctly by your browser, but will be nearly-indecipherable by most email harvesting robots."   [via Sanjay's Coding Tips < webgraphics] []

Data Mining Moratorium Act

Go to this page, and urge your senators to support the Data-Mining Moratorium act, which will put the kibosh on the Pentagon's plans to spy on us all (headed up by convicted felon John Poindexter). I'm embarrased that my Senators, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer are not co-sponsors of this.

One Man's Crowd.... Lisa Rein was in SF yesterday, and contends that estimates of 50,000 were... off. Video Proof Of Yesterday's 350,000 Person... []
I don't know much about estimating crowd size, but there were a lot more than 50,000 people there. Richard and I were down at Spear and Market, and stood and watched thousands of people walk up Market. After an hour or so, we walked up Market ourselves. We stopped at Tu Lan at 6th & Market, waited in line there for a while, then ate. When we came out, there were still people marching up Market. It was no less crowded than it was before. We walked down Market go about 3rd before the marchers stopped. We saw a solid mass of people moving up Market street for at least 3 hours. There were a LOT of people; it was as big a crowd as I've ever seen.

Profiles in courage, part 938. "Governor Ryan's action was shockingly wrong," Mr. Lieberman said in an interview on Friday. "It did terrible damage to... [This Modern World by Tom Tomorrow]
The other day I listened to Lieberman for a while on the radio, and was somewhat encouraged. I was thinking that maybe he could, if elected, pull a "Nixon goes to China," and be the first president to stand up to Israel. But seeing this quote doesn't give me hope; the courageous person here was Ryan. Lieberman makes it sound like he thinks it's worse to point out the horrors of the current system than it is to kill innocent people. At least there are a number of Democrats running for president.

Keith Richards Keeps the Stones Rolling. The lasting image of the Stones' show at Madison Square Garden on Thursday Keith Richards sweetly smiling for the audience and embracing his guitar. By Ben Ratliff. [New York Times: Arts] [michael britten's Loftware]
I've only seen half this show so far. The first half of it, though, was really, really great. As on the bootlegs I've heard, they're committed to the music, energetic, and playing well. I loved the songs from Let It Bleed, always close to my favorite Stones album. I marked it "Do Not Delete" on the Tivo, and will probably keep it around for months.
