Access to Information

Access to Information

July 14, 2015

I believe that free access to information is a human right. The Internet has dramatically enhanced our ability to exercise this right, but unfortunately most humans cannot access the Internet. Today, over 4.3 billion people cannot connect to the Internet at all and another roughly 1 billion people have their Internet connections censored or monitored. A world where only 20% of humans have truly free access to digital information is unacceptable.

That is why we support the creation of Humanity’s Public Library, an initiative by Outernet. Outernet broadcasts a data signal from satellites that is free to receive anywhere on Earth. While this is not an Internet connection, it is a free stream of critical information. What information is considered “critical?” You decide.

Outernet and Creative Commons are co-hosting the first edit-a-thon for Humanity’s Public Library on July 18-19, 2015 to decide what is included in this library. Anyone on Earth is encouraged to participate – details on how to have your voice heard in this process can be found at http://editathon.outernet.is.

I want to encourage my visitors to submit their own work and to submit content that is licensed for redistribution. One such work is this very blog post. Copy these words and post them on your own blog and let’s all gather together and build a #LibraryFromSpace. You can also contribute a photo to library here.

Indexing Notebooks – Part 1

May 19, 2015


In the past I’ve written about creating notes both digitally and on paper. And as big of a digital tech nerd as I am, I always seem to return to pen & paper (or in my case Sharpie & card stock).


Coffee Bag Wallet #3

January 30, 2015


Here another attempt at a wallet. This one is one of those long wallets, where the bills don’t fold. And in my quest to make things harder than they should be, I thought hard holders would be a nice addition.


Burrito Bowls V2

January 27, 2015


This is sort of a “cop-out” post, but we made burrito bowls again tonight. I had mine bowl-style versus burrito-style. Different. More rice, but it was good any way. One thing we changed this round was the “sauce”. We took light sour cream & chipotle sauce and mixed in some ground cayenne pepper & ground smoked chipotle pepper. It had a nice little kick to it!


WTF GoDaddy?

This shit is getting really annoying. In their domain manager, the domain list used to show on at least 1/3 of the page


Coffee Cup

I just had to buy it. ;-)

Playing Monopoly with the parents & the wife. Enemies will likely be made. This could end badly.


Engraved Starbucks Cup

January 22, 2015


Really like this “ghost” engraved mug from Starbucks. Although I’m sure it would eventually get dirty since it looks like it has a porous finish on it. :(

Piece of shit, good for nothing,


Starbucks Wallet…er Card Case

January 19, 2015


I tried making a wallet out of a Starbucks coffee bag. But I screwed it up pretty bad and turned it into a business card & credit card holder…
