One of my favorite pastimes is listening to live music by talented musicians... One of the best places to do that is at the Strawberry Music Festival, held each Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends at Camp Mather near Yosemite National Forest.
A musician I greatly admired once wrote this interesting piece about the sad state of American's mental health.
Long, long ago and far, far away, I thought Windows95 was pretty cool stuff. Here's some snapshots I took when I was invited to the main event in Redmond of LAUNCH '95.
Here's a disorganized collection of files. There's some assorted bitmaps there, including a aerial(space) view of where I live (see the little yellow squiggle?), maybe even a few recipes.

Three judge panel in Philadelphia votes 3-0 that the CDA is not Constitutional.
In the findings, District Judge DALZELL summarized:
True it is that many find some of the speech on the Internet to be offensive, and amid the din of cyberspace many hear discordant voices that they regard as indecent. The absence of governmental regulation of Internet content has unquestionably produced a kind of chaos, but as one of plaintiffs' experts put it with such resonance at the hearing: What achieved success was the very chaos that the Internet is. The strength of the Internet is that chaos. Just as the strength of the Internet is chaos, so the strength of our liberty depends upon the chaos and cacophony of the unfettered speech the First Amendment protects. For these reasons, I without hesitation hold that the CDA is unconstitutional on its face.
