Today I woke early. Well, early for me - noonish. I was up until 7am watching Brazil and reading. I'm working on finishing the chapter exams. But since the payment didn't come until after new year, I worked on my other book - my love, my life (civil liberties). The only reason for writing this CBT, to survive while writing the other book.

The DMCA book is almost finished. The first book asked a lot of questions and this one answers some. Back in 2000 people knew nothing and that book was just supposed to be a layman's guide to what is going on... Now, this book is for those truly interested in the DMCA.

I remembered to include a thanks to Cory Doctorow and Daniel Orr, for without whom, I would never have had the desire to complete this work. The book began as a DMCA FAQ for the EFF blog. It also includes a glossary for the DMCA. I was going to write just a DMCA encyclopedia and queried the FSF. I never got back to Lisa about it. I wanted it to give her a good sample and just got carried away with it.

Of course, I built this book upon advice I received from RMS in the past about the first book and on other occassions. He is such a good writer. In the last few years I noticed his writing isn't as frequent. He is busy with his sweetheart I suppose. More power to him!

Of course the book is being published non exclusively.

I'll purchase my tickets for Rhode Island this summer and work on helping lobster "farmers" in Connecticut. In October, I noticed some posted signs of injustice at the docks in Mystic. This summer, I'm going to be a LOBSTER "FARMER" and raise some noise!!!
