Yet another reason not to drive

April 10, 2008 in Syndicated

As if there weren’t enough already, including skyrocketing gas prices and pollution, now we can add “might get shot” to the list.

See this latest incident in San Francisco. It’s getting *scary* out there.

Return of the Quakes – Home Opener vs. Chicago

April 9, 2008 in Syndicated


It’s been almost 3 years since I last saw the earthquakes play live – and now we’ll get that chance again. Unfortunately, it just had to coincide with Lug Radio Live, which I must attend for BytesFree.org.

This Saturday the Quakes take on the Fire in the same big-ass stadium in the east bay where the Raiders and A’s play. What is it, again? Oh yeah, the coliseum.

So while I’ll have to miss it, *you* can still go, and you should. Unfortunately, I’ve already given away my tickets to some other lucky individual, so you’ll have to get yours elsewhere ;)

Public Knowledge Commends International Consumer Net Neutrality Resolution

April 9, 2008 in Syndicated

The Trans Atlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD), earlier this week approved, and presented to representatives of the U.S. government, a resolution in favor of policies that will promote a non-discriminatory Internet. The TACD is a group of 60 consumer and public-interest organizations from the European Union and the U.S. More background on the organization is found at www.tacd.org.

The resolution, adopted at a TACD meeting in Washington, D.C., found that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) “have the technical ability to act as gatekeepers, blocking or degrading consumers’ access to certain content and applications, or limiting the types of equipment that can be attached to the network. Such behavior can severely limit the usefulness of the Internet and frustrate consumers’ aims.”

BytesFree.org at Lug Radio Live USA

April 7, 2008 in Syndicated

I’m happy to announce that BytesFree.org will be represented at its first event, Lug Radio Live, which will be held at the Metreon in San Francisco on April 12th and 13th. It’s quite a challenge to get things going organizationally, and this looks to be a pretty rewarding experience.

We will have a table at the expo. Also, Ilan and I will be speaking on Sunday at 3pm.

If you’d like to come by and say hello, or if you’re interested in volunteering, please do let us know.

New Improved Position Paper

April 7, 2008 in Syndicated

A long time ago, I wrote a paper encouraging people to support AB 1668 and posted it on the wiki. I have finally updated the paper to reflect the new focus of BytesFree.org.

Read the new improved paper.

Also, as we slowly make our way through the incorporation process, one of the things we have to do is create a mission statement. I never really cared for these types of exercises. Not because I don’t see their value – I do, but because I’m lazy. In any case, I think we’ve come up with a nice tentative one:

BytesFree.org is dedicated to the idea that all people should have full and unrestricted access to all information to which they are legally or morally entitled. BytesFree.org works to ensure that public data is available to all, unburdened by restrictive access methods, non-standard file formats, unreasonable fees, unnecessary bureaucratic delays, or unpalatable legal requirements.

You can find more new stuff on the About page.
