Firefox community to set Guinness World Record

I've been using the beta and now the RC for some time now, and I love it! The only thing that keeps me using Safari as much as I do is the simplicity and elegance of the interface. I know, that's something I spoiled myself by way of all the ad-ons I've installed, but they are just so damn useful!

It's amazing what some politicians think they can get away with these days. Whatever happened to that good ol' Revolutionary Spirit that made this country of ours what it once was?

Media and Popular Opinion

This is in some ways a response to my last post, but even so, it stands well on its own. The video above raises some interesting points about the power of modern media to influence popular opinion in this nation. I'm still perturbed that Dr. Ron Paul has received as little attention in mainstream news as he has thus far. However, the dangers of being on the wrong side of the Media can be seen almost as clearly in the ongoing struggle between Senators Obama and Clinton. The comparison of Google Trends data and number of hits on YouTube! for various candidates does provide some interesting numbers to consider. A good Google Trends search here shows all of them together and restricted to searches from the US, within the last twelve months.

McCain's YouTube Problem Just Became a Nightmare

月蝕賑災視頻 - 愛與希望 (中國四川 512 地震)

I wish I could reed more of the Chinese in this video than just the date, but as stands, it's still a very touching tribute to the victims of the May twelfth earthquake in Sichuan province. My prayers and condolences go out to all those who have suffered in this tragedy. Also, my heartfelt thanks and congratulations to all those who were willing and able to rise to the cause and give of their time and substance to support those in this time of great need. If only the strength of the human spirit could continues to shine through times of joy as well as it does in times of sorrow.

I'm starting to worry about Google

YouTube exhibits double standards with The Church of Scientology and its critics. What ever happened to "Do No Evil™" with Google?
