On a plane tomorrow, so hitting these a day early.
The Dissenter | Justice John Paul Stevens, a long time “conservative” judge, has become the defining voice for the liberal dissenters of the court since Bush’s stacking of ultra-conservative judges.

Charlatans To Give Away New Album as Free Download | In more “what’s up with the music industry” news, the Charlatans (or the Charlatans UK for us American fans) are pushing out their record as a free download.

That is starting to change, and with mainstream companies taking note and begining to invest in them, we should start to see a more semantic web. Semantics = better usability of information, and that should make us all happier browsers.
Mizzou Loves Mac | This image shows that “Mizzou” (Univ. of Missouri) is sure a Mac-lovin school. I assume this to be the Journalism school there, based of my discussion with an alum. Steve Jobs, eat your heart out.

Consulting vs Contracting | How consultants need to position themselves differently than contractors in order to ensure a proper response from their target markets and clients.
