About the Blog

The thoughts and theories of a guy who basically should have gone to bed hours ago.

I know, I know - what's the point? But look at it this way - I stayed up late writing it, but you're reading it...

Let's call ourselves even & move on, OK?

New Low in Ego Stroking: Google Bragging

For those too busy to do a Google search on "leahy wiretapping", allow me to brief you on the results:

Result #17:
I Should Be Sleeping: Senator Leahy on Privacy in the Post 9/11 World by Brian Greenberg

Result #129:
TidBITS: CFP 2006: Life, Liberty and Digital Rights by Jeff Porten

Result #363:
TidBITS#828/08-May-06, including the above article by Jeff Porten.

Not in the top 400 (but accessible when searching "leahy wiretapping"):
The Vast Jeff Wing Conspiracy - CFP2006

So now just so we're sure we got this straight:
- Jeff goes to conference
- Jeff gets a paying gig writing about the conference in a well respected e-zine
- E-zine posts Jeff's article
- Jeff blogs about his article being posted
- I read his blog post, read the article, and comment on it in my blog.
- Google classifies my blog post first, Jeff's article second, and Jeff's blog post third.

We're living in a very strange world, folks...
