wStoned Out Loud
As the Rolling Stones began their tour while welching on the more than quarter of a million dollar deal they made with my Friend, I started this e-Blogazine journal to document some of my experience of the fallout, and to create a forum for discussion and resources to reform the Music Industry. May Artists, Musicians, and Free People everywhere find it useful.

RMS has some tasty links

Richard M. Stallman (RMS) has one hell of a set of links on his page.

RMS is the Founder of the Free Software Foundation, the Gnu Project (without which we would not have the Gnu Public License (GPL) or Linux), and the George Washington of Open, Transparent Code, and I hold him in the highest regard. If it were not for his doing a lot of the unglamourous coding and grunt work that goes along with building a software infrastructure, we would not have the excellent Free software we have today.

I wandered on over to his page today, and all the worthy causes he is involved with just blew me away! My God! If only I could be HALF that effective.

Here are the links I found there:

Initially the Israeli settlements in the occupied territories weremade by expansionists who were eager to create "facts on the ground"in support of annexation, and there are still some of those. But theywere expanded by Israeli governments who made them available cheap toimmigrants (from Russia, etc.) in order to fill them. Since thesesettlements are an obstacle to a peaceful solution, it is good newsthat so many are willing to leave. All it will take is the money tobuild them other places to live--and the US can certainly afford thecost. URL=
