Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

And what it is ain’t exactly clear. Some sort of ruling has come down on the California DVD Case, but the Associated Press and the Electronic Frontier Foundation seem to disagree on what was actually decided.

Skimming over the actual decision I think what I am seeing is that the original preliminary injunction — requiring the defendant to remove DeCSS code from the Web — has been upheld. That’s what the A.P. article zeroes in on. But there is a bunch of other language in here that seems helpful to the EFF and all the other Good Guys in this saga. So that’s where the EFF’s optimism must be coming from. Hmm.
