- Scott McCloud and the Google Chrome Comic Book – Google went the webcomic route to promote their new browser… and pulled in none other than Scott McCloud to create it. This only further confirms my belief that google will eventually take over the world – and I, for one, welcome our new masters.
- Federal government involved in raids on protesters – Glenn Greenwald – Salon.com – Not surprising, given my experiences during the 2004 RNC: "So here we have a massive assault led by Federal Government law enforcement agencies on left-wing dissidents and protesters who have committed no acts of violence or illegality whatsoever, preceded by months-long espionage efforts to track what they do. And as extraordinary as that conduct is, more extraordinary is the fact that they have received virtually no attention from the national media and little outcry from anyone. And it's not difficult to see why. As the recent "overhaul" of the 30-year-old FISA law illustrated — preceded by the endless expansion of surveillance state powers, justified first by the War on Drugs and then the War on Terror — we've essentially decided that we want our Government to spy on us without limits. There is literally no police power that the state can exercise that will cause much protest from the political and media class and, therefore, from the citizenry."

- Scrabulost (0 points) :: Mykl Roventine – Designer of Things – Just discovered Mykl's blog, and really enjoyed this post about the demise of the "Scrabulous" Facebook application. To be honest, I hadn't played a game in a while due to the busy convention season, but Mykl raises a lot of great points about the issue here.
