I’ve written other books in the past, and as soon as I finish writing it I go straight to the printer, because even if I had a publisher waiting for me right there I’d still want to do that. It just takes too long. I don’t have the patience to spend a year of my life writing a book and then be finished, and all I want to do is have people read it and I’m so excited about … and then I have to wait a year for them to do all this process and make the cover, which probably won’t even be a cover that I like … By the time it actually comes out I’m over it already. So I want to put it out now, so that at least my immediate friends and family can see it, and my inner circle that actually pays attention to my website, they can buy it.

Evanson specializes in blue chip domains like mm.com, which he sold for a tidy $1.2 million last year, so at first glance he isn’t impressed with the NSA’s portfolio—the spy agency used a lot of fake download sites, ad networks, and notional technology blogs in its espionage. “Not going to have a lot of appeal to Joe or Mary Sixpack,” he grumbles.

Granted there are some good arguments against the settlement, because Google does obtain legal immunity from being sued for copyright infringement for scanning, displaying and selling the orphan books.

Civil liberty and legal advocacy groups have called on lawmakers to reform the CFAA to prevent zealous prosecutors from punishing conduct that many feel doesn’t truly constitute a computer crime.

Katz, who oddly was using Dave as a go-between, had apparently erased the words “impossible” and “no” from his vocabulary. He insisted on meeting ASAP, that night, at the bar. Barton refused.

It was complicated and felt somehow dangerous, but it worked: With just two texts, I summoned a carnival of cannabis to my front door.
The three groups issued a joint statement promising to cooperate to cooperate to recover the stolen funds, following weeks of accusations over who is to blame.
Okay, you’ve clicked on the link. Seen the video. Ogled the endless slides of photos perfectly doctored to make it look as though “all your base are belong to us” has infiltrated the entire planet.
