metaguacamole: Regarding the mozilla image thing, I've been tracking it on the various sites (mostly kuro5hin, but it also looks like the shit finally hit the /.fan).

Anyway, it's sort of encouraging to see the course of the conversation here on guacamole. The alarmist rants hardly even registered before a discussion of the ethical issues involved in the world of producer and consumer emerged; in particular, how privacy issues survive in the crucible between the sometimes conflicting goals of the two. (give credit where credit is due, eivind probably first kicked that can with a position he must have known would be contrary to most readers; I suppose it's possible that it was a bit of a troll, but he at least makes some intelligent efforts to back up his assertions with things other than ad hoc button stomping).

It's why I keep coming back, anyway.

As for diaries...various distractions lately...this have been distracting from coding as well. sigh. These distractions have not been without merit, however; drum lessons are proceeding well. I'm pretty sure I detected faithful execution of a rhumba/bolero beat emanating from my flailings today. It could be a monkey/typewriter thing, though.
