They will also be hosted at Pruning Shears until Thursday, so you can try before you buy over there.Here are my favorite songs this year from my RSS feeds. I use as my aggregator but it requires the .NET framework, which older computers may not have. doesn’t need it and is good too. See the "Free MP3 sites" part of my blogroll for my current feed list.Most weeks I burn as many new songs as I can fit onto a rewritable CD and give it a thorough listen (usually five times), so in that spirit I...

The Biggest Threat To Newspapers is Newspapers - Shadowproof

The Biggest Threat To Newspapers is Newspapers - Shadowproof

No Associated Press content was harmed in the writing of this postJournalistic solipsism requires that outside phenomena be treated with clinical detachment but those within the industry be screamed with lights and sirens. For instance, enormous nationwide job losses are but high double digit layoffs in a newsroom are bold, caps, updates and overheated rhetoric. It also explains the myopia over what troubles the industry. We are in a recession, so it seems obvious that newspapers in the doldrums too. Yet the internet is the their ire. Why? Nothing is on the scene now that wasn’t around five...

Breaking the Bailout - Shadowproof

Breaking the Bailout - Shadowproof

No Associated Press content was harmed in the writing of this postThis week the bailout went from outrageous to stupefying. , "half the value of everything produced in the nation last year". If it was not already obvious that the show Congress last week was a complete charade, the illusion did not survive the weekend. Aside from the dollar totals there are almost no details, but keep in mind deregulation by Washington gave Wall Street free rein to indulge its worst instincts. The major players have every reason to minimize how bad the situation really is, so don’t use the $20 billion – use...

Always and Forever, Bad Apples - Shadowproof

Always and Forever, Bad Apples - Shadowproof

No Associated Press content was harmed in the writing of this postBut the measures implemented to assist deeply underwater [savings and loans] (in the very high interest rate environment of 1980-1982) were exploited by outsiders to the industry, who acquired thrifts on extremely favorable terms. Many of them, like Charles Keating, had been previously charged with fraud or had criminal records. The resulting cohort of high-flying thrifts showed high profits and growth rates and were widely praised as proof that deregulation worked, until they crashed. It is easy to look like a winner if you...

Best Music of 2008 - Shadowproof

Here are my favorite songs this year from my RSS feeds. I use as my aggregator but it requies the .NET framework, which older computers may not have. doesn’t need it and is good too.Most weeks I burn as many new songs as I can fit onto a rewritable CD and listen to it throughout the week. That means my best of is about 1/52nd (~ 2%) of my favorites. I forced myself to stay under 80 minutes so they all could fit on a single CD. In a way it’s an arbitrary limit but if you’re going to share a "best of" list you shouldn’t overwhelm your listeners – I know from experience that restraint in these...

Concerning violence advocates and nailing jello to walls - Shadowproof

Concerning violence advocates and nailing jello to walls - Shadowproof

This was published with considerable feedback from several bloggers at Corrente: , , and . My sincere thanks to all of them for their help. Note: this post was updated shortly after publication.When writing about violence at Occupy there seems to be a great deal of controversy over what the word itself means, so I’ll lead this post with what I hope is an unobjectionable definition. Since it comes from Google () it may well be the most-read definition of violence in the English speaking world:violence – noun – Behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or...

Libya: The latest failure of America's war policy - Shadowproof

Libya: The latest failure of America's war policy - Shadowproof

No Associated Press content was harmed in the writing of this postWhen we launched our war against Libya we were assured it would last , or . We are now over five months into our involvement and it does not look like we will be finishing up any time soon. But as its architects must surely have anticipated, the absence of soldiers on the ground and our collective resignation to a permanent state of war has caused it to largely recede from public view.(Just for the record: I am going to go ahead and call this a war even though there have been some mind bending exercises in finding something...
